A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

What if I add that God would have His people with their various peculiarities put their prayers together? I, as a Calvinist, remark that our Arminian friends prayer wonderfully. I can seldom perceive much difference between them and ourselves, but no doubt we view particular parts of the truth differently. Now these various constitutions of Christians affect in some degree their prayers, and when they are blended, they give a peculiar harmony of sweetness to the incense.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, The Power of Prayer in a Believers Life, (edited by Robert Hall, Emerald Books, 1993, p. 190)

Are we sometimes to quick to dismiss people of other doctrinal positions? Could we benefit from each others' perspectives?
