"Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got
men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them
so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing
songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say
prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about
us, if we don't wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping
sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work - to
wake people up." - Catherine Booth

"Spirit filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that
glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a
devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns.
They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of
God." - Samuel Chadwick

"Are you truly a Spirit-filled Christian? Does the term "Spirit-filled"
describe your doctrine or your devotion?" – David Smithers

"How is it that the soul being of such value, and God so great,
eternity so near and yet we are so little moved?" - William Bramwell

"Pray, O pray, my brother! never, never quit your hold of the
fullness of God; for time is nearly over, and if this fullness be lost it
will be lost forever. I am astonished that we do not pray more, yea,
that we do not live every moment as on the brink of the eternal
world, and in the blessed expectation of that glorious country."
 - William Bramwell

"Many who do come into the secret place, and who are God's
children, enter it and leave it just as they entered, without ever so
much as realizing the presence of God. And there are some
believers who, even when they do obtain a blessing, and get a
little quickening of soul, leave the secret place without seeking
more. They go to their chamber, and there get into the secret
place, but then, as soon as they have got near to Him, they think
they have been peculiarly blessed, and leave their chamber, and
go back into the world…Oh, how is it that the Lord's own people
have so little perseverance? How is it that when they do enter
into their place of prayer to be alone, they are so easily persuaded
to be turned away empty; instead of wrestling with God to pour
out His Spirit, they retire from the secret place without the answer,
and submit to it as being God's will." – William C. Burns

"While women weep, as they do now, I'll fight; while children go
hungry, as they do now I'll fight; while men go to prison, in and out,
in and out, as they do now, I'll fight; while there is a drunkard left,
while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains
one dark soul without the light of God, I'll fight - I'll fight to the very
end!" - William Booth

"Work as if everything depended upon your work, and pray as if
everything depended upon your prayer." - William Booth

"Go for souls and go for the worst." – William Booth

"A real minister of the gospel is a man of prayer. Prayer is his
grand employment, his safety, his first and perpetual duty; and
under grace, the grand source of his consolation. Our instructions
will be always barren, if they be not watered with our tears and
prayers." - Thomas Coke

"A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge,
even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry
for God." - Leonard Ravenhill

"A zealous man feels that like a lamp he is made to burn; and if
consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God
appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If
he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh
and pray." - J. C. Ryle

"Lord grant that the FIRE of my heart may melt the lead in my
feet." - Unknown

"A minister, who prays not, who is not in love with prayer, is not a
minister of the Church of God. He is a dry tree, which occupies in
vain a place in Christ's garden. He is an enemy, and not a father,
of the people. He is a stranger, who has taken the place of the
shepherd, and to whom the salvation of the flock is an indifferent
thing." – Thomas Coke

"In Shansi I found Chinese Christians who were accustomed to
spend time in fasting and prayer. They recognized that this fasting,
which so many dislike, which requires faith in God, since it makes
one feel weak and poorly, is really a Divinely appointed means of
grace. Perhaps the greatest hindrance to our work is our own
imagined strength; and in fasting we learn what poor, weak
creatures we are - dependent on a meal of meat for the little
strength which we are so apt to lean upon." - J. Hudson Taylor

"The Azusa revival began where every revival should rightly begin -
in repentant tears. It began in tears, it lived in tears, and when the
tears ended the Azusa revival ended." - A. G. Osterberg

"A revival almost always begins among the laity. The ecclesiastical
leaders seldom welcome reformation. History repeats itself. The
present leaders are too comfortably situated as a rule to desire
innovation that might require sacrifice on their part. And God's fire
only falls on sacrifice. An empty altar receives no fire!" – Frank Bartleman
