“A baptism of holiness, a demonstration of godly living is the crying need of our day.”
“You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there’s a fire. Likewise, when your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community will already know it.”
“Prayer moves the arm that moves the world.”
~ Charles H. Spurgeon
“A true revival means nothing less than a revolution, casting out the spirit of worldliness and selfishness, and making God and His love triumph in the heart and life.”
Billy Graham just posted a very timely word on his Facebook page:
“I’m absolutely convinced that no matter who’s elected America is not going to be saved unless we have a moral and spiritual revival.”
You might think Billy said these words recently, but this quote actually comes from an old episode of “Hour of Decision.”
Billy’s words are as true today as they were when he first said them.
“No nation has ever improved morally without a revival of religion … and America needs a revival today!”
“It is the tragedy of this hour that many people seem to think that if they know the mechanics of serving God, that is all that is necessary. May this thought be far removed from your minds. No service is acceptable unto God unless it is rendered upon the wings of prayer. Therefore, may we withdraw ourselves to the secret place and there pray until we have an answer.”
O God: Give me strength to live another day; Let me not turn coward before its difficulties or prove recreant to its duties; Let me not lose faith in other people; Keep me sweet and sound of heart, in spite of ingratitude, treachery, or meanness; Preserve me from minding little stings or giving them; Help me to keep my heart clean, and to live so honestly and fearlessly that no outward failure can dishearten me or take away the joy of conscious integrity; Open wide the eyes of my soul that I may see good in all things; Grant me this day some new vision of thy truth; Inspire me with the spirit of joy and gladness; and make me the cup of salvation to suffering souls; in the name of the strong Deliverer, our only Lord and Savior, Jesus.
