The only way to learn strong faith is to endure great trials.

– George Müller –

Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is.

– Charles Spurgeon –

A life without Christ is a hopeless end,
A life with Christ is an endless hope.

Revival is …

  • Revival is … oneness of the membership in the mystical, supernatural body of Christ, delivered from denominational bigotry
  • Revival is the saints of God agonizing on behalf of lost souls going to hell
  • Revival is the people of God living in the power of an ungrieved, unquenched Spirit
  • Revival is the child of God desperately in love with his glorious Savior and Lord
  • Revival is living the Christ life in the home
  • Revival is the heathen saying, “The Lord hath done great things for them” (Psa. 126:2)
  • Revival is the Church of God as a conquering army putting to rout the hosts of hell
  • Revival is torrents of living water flowing out of the individual believer
  • Revival is the beauty of holiness adorning the saints
  • Revival is the recognition of the ministry of insignificant members of the body, and deliverance from idol worship of the more prominent members who are in the limelight
  • Revival is the people of God constrained, gripped, overmastered, and overwhelmed by the love of Christ, so that they are feverishly restless to win souls for Christ

– James A. Stewart –

A man can not lead others where he is not willing to go himself. Therefore, beware of the prayerless church leader who no longer readily admits his own need for more of the person and power of Jesus Christ. Only a seeking, praying heart can truly encourage spiritual HUNGER in others!

– David Smithers –

No erudition, no purity of diction, no width of mental outlook, no flowers of eloquence, no grace of person can atone for lack of fire. Prayer ascends by fire. Flame gives prayer access as well as wings, acceptance as well as energy. There is no incense without fire; no prayer without flame.

– EM Bounds –

Whole days and weeks have I spent prostrate on the ground in silent or vocal prayer.

– George Whitefield –
