“Prayer in its highest form is agonizing soul sweat.”

~ Leonard Ravenhill

“If weak in prayer, we are weak everywhere.”

~ Leonard Ravenhill


Leonard Ravenhill, in his book, Why Revival Tarries, wrote:

Poverty-stricken as the church is today in many things, she is the most stricken here, in the place of prayer. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few prayers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere (p. 23)

As long as we are content to live without revival, we will!

~Leonard Ravenhill

The tragedy of this hour is that we have too many dead men giving out dead sermons to dead people.


Because the strange thing today which exists in the pulpit is a horrible thing: it is preaching without unction.

~ Leonard Ravenhill

Notice, we never pray for folks we gossip about, and we never gossip about the folk for whom we pray! For prayer is a great deterrent.

~Leonard Ravenhill

Leonard Ravenhill said…

“How can you pull down strongholds of Satan if you don’t even
have the strength to turn off your TV?”

It is possible that you don’t have a clue because you do not attend it.  But if you do, Leonard Ravenhill points outs…

The ugly fact is that altar fires are either out or burning very low. The prayer meeting is dead or dying.

“Sinned as we have as a nation, yet to our sin we have added pride in our sinning. The world has lost the power to blush over its vice; the church has lost her power to weep over it.”

Leonard Ravenhill
