Do You Argue with God in Your Prayers?

Justin Taylor at the Gospel Coalition posts the following about Prayer.

What do you think?  Is Spurgeon right?

Charles Spurgeon says you should argue with God in your prayers—not to be argumentative, but to beseech the Lord with holy arguments with biblical precedence.
An excerpt:
The best prayers I have ever heard in our prayer meetings have been those which have been fullest of argument. Sometimes my soul has been fairly melted down where I have listened to the brethren who have come before God feeling the mercy to be really needed, and that they must have it, for they first pleaded with God to give it for this reason, and then for a second, and then for a third and then for a fourth and a fifth until they have awakened the fervency of the entire assembly.
