“From the Day of Pentecost, there has not been one great spiritual awakening in any land which has not begun in a union of prayer, though only among two or three; no such outward, upward movement has continued after such prayer meetings have declined.”

A.T. Pierson, quoted by Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power, p. 112

 

“REVIVALS BEGIN WITH GOD’S OWN PEOPLE; THE HOLY SPIRIT TOUCHES THEIR HEART ANEW, AND GIVES THEM NEW FERVOR AND COMPASSION, AND ZEAL, NEW LIGHT AND LIFE, AND WHEN HE HAS THUS COME TO YOU, HE NEXT GOES FORTH TO THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES… OH, WHAT RESPONSIBILITY THIS LAYS ON THE CHURCH OF GOD! IF YOU GRIEVE HIM AWAY FROM YOURSELVES, OR HINDER HIS VISIT, THEN THE POOR PERISHING WORLD SUFFERS SORELY!”

~ Andrew Bonar

“It is not always clear when prayer meetings are part of the revival itself or are proceeding it. But the distinction does not matter too much. Prayer is both the cause and result of the coming of the Spirit in revival.”

Brian H. EdwardsRevival! A People Saturated With God78.

“TO LOOK BACK UPON THE PROGRESS OF THE DIVINE KINGDOM UPON EARTH IS TO REVIEW REVIVAL PERIODS WHICH HAVE COME LIKE REFRESHING SHOWERS UPON DRY AND THIRSTY GROUND, MAKING THE DESERT TO BLOSSOM AS THE ROSE, AND BRINGING NEW ERAS OF SPIRITUAL LIFE AND ACTIVITY JUST WHEN THE CHURCH HAD FALLEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE APATHY OF THE TIMES.”

~ E.M. BOUNDS

 

“Church revitalization will only ever happen in answer to faith-filled, prevailing prayer. It is greatly to the glory of God to revitalize a church of humble, prayerful people. But it is greatly dishonoring to him to suppose this transformation can come about any other way.”

~ Andrew M DavisRevitalize, 94.

“Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restores a deep sense of God’s near presence and holiness. Thence springs a vivid sense of sin and a profound exercise of heart in repentance, praise, and love, with an evangelistic outflow.”

~ J.I. Packer

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

 

Jim Cymbala

“…there has never been a revival of religion so long as the order of service has been strictly followed.

…we are to be led by the Holy Spirit.” 

“Christians in revival are accordingly found living in God’s presence (Coram Deo), attending to His Word, feeling acute concern about sin and righteousness, rejoicing in the assurance of Christ’s love and their own salvation, spontaneously constant in worship, and tirelessly active in witness and service, fueling these activities by praise and prayer.”

~ J.I. Packer
