Our Longest Sorrows Have an Ending

Charles Spurgeon on Prayer:

Job 42:10 - After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord made him prosperous again.

What a promise is contained in this verse! Our longest sorrows have an ending, and there is a bottom to the profoundest depths of misery. Winter shall not frown forever; summer shall soon smile. The tide shall not eternally ebb out; the floods retrace their march. The night shall not hang its darkness forever over our souls; the sun shall yet arise with healing beneath his wings. He who turned the captivity of Job can turn yours as the streams in the south. He shall make your vineyard to blossom and your field to yield her fruit again.

Challenge: This week, I challenge you to pray! The verse says, "After Job had prayed for his friends..." Prayer typically changes us more than the ones we are praying for.
