Illustration of Psalm 69:5-6

“So how will you prepare for the storm? If we wait to prepare until we’re in the middle of a temptation, we’re too late. We must be proactive. We need to see the storms coming from afar, and reinforce our walls ahead of time. The strength we need to endure the storm ultimately comes from God, but we must take hold of his strength through prayer. ”

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer66-67.

“Revival begins in the individual’s heart. Let it begin with you on your face alone before God. Turn from every sin that might hinder. Renew yourself to a new devotion to the Savior.”

“Oh for a great and general revival of true religion…Let us pray for such a visitation of the Holy Ghost with our whole souls. It is not only desirable, it is essential; we must either be revived by the Lord Himself, or the churches will descend until error and ungodliness swallow them up. This calamity shall not happen but only divine grace can avert it.”

~ C.H. Spurgeon

“Revival begins in the individual’s heart. Let it begin with you on your face alone before God. Turn from every sin that might hinder. Renew yourself to a new devotion to the Savior.”

“Steadfastness in believing doth not exclude all temptations from without. When we say a tree is firmly rooted, we do not say the wind never blows upon it.”

“When Holy God draws near in true revival, people come under terrible conviction of sin. The outstanding feature of spiritual awakening has been the profound consciousness of the Presence and holiness of God”

~ Henry Blackaby

“I cannot pray but I sin.  I cannot hear or preach a sermon but I sin.  I cannot give an alms or receive the sacrament but I sin.  Nay, I cannot so much as confess my sins, but my very confessions are still aggravations of them.  My repentance needs to be repented of, my tears need washing, and the very washing of my tears needs still to be washed over again with the blood of my Redeemer.”

William Beveridge, Private Thoughts (London, 1720), page 52

“Prayer can never be in excess.”

~ C. H. Spurgeon
