Prayers By Dwight L. Moody

Prayers as recorded in “The Gospel Awakenings, Sermons and Addresses. Prayer-Meeting Talks and Bible Readings of the Great Revival Meetings Conducted by Moody and Sankey,”

pp.721-733. Published in 1885.

Our Heavenly Father, we pray thee that thou wilt give us more and more of the compassion of Christ. We read from the very beginning that he was moved with compassion, as this good Samaritan, when he met this poor, wounded and dying man.
O God, give us the spirit of the good Samaritan!
May we go from this building and hunt up many to-night, and tell them of Christ and heaven. May we go to the homes of the poor drunkards; may we go to the homes and hearts of gamblers, the homes of the fallen, the despised and the outcast, and tell them of Christ and heaven.

O Spirit of God!   Come down upon this assembly, and may the Church of God find out who
their neighbors are. And, O God, we pray thee that they may be filled with the Spirit of Christ, and that they may go and tell others the story of the cross.

And, O God, we pray thee that hundreds and thousands in this city may be working to win souls to Christ. We pray that great things may be done in Boston the coming Sabbath. And not only on the Sabbath, O God; we will not wait for the Sabbath, but to-night, as thy servants meet in the different churches, O God, do thou meet with them, and we pray thee that there may be a quickening in the churches all over Boston, and all around in its vicinity.

Do thou wake them up, that there may be a great work for them to do. Arid we pray that the day may be not far distant when many souls may be brought to Christ, and when this building shall be filled with those who are lost and want to be saved; and that the cry may go out from many anxious hearts. “What shall I do to be saved?” O Spirit of God, come down upon the assembly now, that the hearts of God’s people may be made one; and that they may all be brought to God and all be glorifiers and honorers of Christ! May we be holy ourselves and consecrate to him our best service.

Now we pray for a numerous meeting tonight. May these Christian young men be fired with the
Holy Spirit from on high. May they be like Joshua, strong in the faith, men of God. May the Christian young men of Boston be known for their piety. And O Lord, we pray thee that drunkards by hundreds and thousands may be saved by the regenerating power of God. May they be touched by the Holy Spirit, and may power be given them to overcome their terrible
appetite. We pray that this meeting we had this noon may be the means of saving many, and that thou wilt bless it, as well as those we have in the future. We pray, O God, that many may go out every day and pray for these men, and show them the way of salvation. In the saloons, the billiard saloons.

O God, mayest thou pour out thy mercy and make many men tremble for what they were about to do. O God, as we tarry at the second meeting. we pray that the Spirit of God may come upon us, and that this great audience may be hushed by the power of God. May we hear the voice of
Jesus to-night; and as we listen may we be ready to go out and do his bidding. For thy name’s sake. Amen.
