Mr. Spurgeon prayed this before his congregation more than 150 years ago. It’s still on the lips of groaning saints the world over…

“Let all nations know their God.

Wherever there are wars and strife, let them cease when the end is answered.

Let slavery loose her fetters; let liberty reign everywhere.

Let the Advent of Christ soon arrive.

Let the idols be dashed in pieces; let all false foundations be razed to the ground, and may He come whose right it is to reign.

O Jesus, the world hath waited long; and we have heard the word which saith, “Overturn; overturn;”

but when will You stop the overturn to establish the righteous things, and to cast down all evil?

When will You come to be King of kings and Lord of lords?

And now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, our Saviour, be glory for ever and ever, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.”

Charles H. Spurgeon
