"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

"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...!" - Andrew Bonar

"How we have prayed for a Revival - we did not care whether it
was old-fashioned or not - what we asked for was that it should
be such that would cleanse and revive His children and set them
on fire to win others." - Mary Booth

"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

"There is a growing conviction everywhere, and especially among
thoughtful people, that unless revival comes, other forces will take
the field, that will sink us still deeper into the mire of humanism
and materialism." - Duncan Campbell

"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
