“Is it not the great end of religion, and, in particular, the glory of Christianity, to extinguish the malignant passions; to curb the violence, to control the appetites, and to smooth the asperities of man; to make us compassionate and kind, and forgiving one to another; to make us good husbands, good fathers, good friends; and to render us active and useful in the discharge of the relative social and civil duties?”

~ William Wilberforce

“Revival brings back a holy shock to apathy and carelessness.”

 

“There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.”

“Revival awakens in our hearts an increased awareness of the presence of God, a new love for God, a new hatred for sin, and a hunger for His Word.”

~ Del Fehsenfeld Jr.

“There is none like you among the gods, O LORD, nor are there any works like yours. All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O LORD, and shall glorify your name. You are great and do wondrous things; YOU ALONE ARE GOD!!”

(Psalm 86.8-10)

“You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there’s a fire. Likewise, if your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community will already know it.”

~ Leonard Ravenhill

“A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!”

~ Billy Sunday

“A congregation without a prayer meeting is essentially defective in its organization, and so must be limited in its efficiency”

~ J. B. Johnston

“To a true child of God, the invisible bond that unites all believers to Christ is far more tender, and lasting, and precious; and, as we come to recognize and realize that we are all dwelling in one sphere of life in Him, we learn to look on every believer as our brother, in a sense that is infinitely higher than all human relationships. This is the one and only way to bring disciples permanently together. All other plans for promoting the unity of the Church have failed.”

~ A. T. Pierson

“History is silent about revivals that did not begin with prayer.”

~ Edwin Orr
