“This is how we live spiritually—we breathe in the air by prayer, and we breathe it out by praise!
This is the holy respiration of a Christian’s life! Prayer and praise must be mingled in a divinely wise proportion and then they make a sweet incense, acceptable to God.
I hope we can say that we have never finished praying but that we feel we must begin singing, and that we have never finished singing but that we must begin praying!
What a blessed interchange this makes for the whole of life!”
—Charles Spurgeon 1895, Sermon
