"We often have a tinted view of revival as a time of glory and joy
and swelling numbers queuing to enter the churches. That is only
part of the story. Before the glory and joy, there is conviction; and
that begins with the people of God. There are tears of godly sorrow.
There are wrongs to put right, secret things...to be thrown out,
and bad relationships, hidden for years, to be repaired openly. If
we are not prepared for this, we had better not pray for revival."
-Brian Edwards

"Study the history of revival. God has always sent revival in the
darkest days."
-Adrian Rogers

"Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed
by an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up
one's will to God in deep humility."
-Charles Finney

"A revival, then, really means days of heaven upon earth."
-D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

"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 bonesĀ..."
-Andrew Bonar
