"God is presently seeking for a humble, praying people that He
can pour His glory through. If we will not yield to the Holy Spirit in
humble obedience, He will find a people who will! Some of us may
have to visit someone else's fellowship in order to experience the
coming move of God. Let's not deceive ourselves, God is not
committed to use us, but He is committed to remember the prayer
of the humble. (Psa. 9:12). If we refuse to prescribe to the Christ
honored methods of humility and prayer, we will certainly be
refused for the Master's use in the coming revival." - David Smithers

"The self-righteous never apologize." - Leonard Ravenhill

"When HOLINESS loses its sweetness it is a fierce thing to come
in contact with." – Frank Bartleman

"God has a good deal more to give than most of us are getting.
"Knee-ology" is a much-neglected branch of Christian ethics. The
Church loses immeasurably in strength and accelerated power by
failing to test the wonderful promises of God in prayer. Oh, for
somebody who can really pray. Why need a church languish and
die and have no one converted the year round? Somebody
neglects to pray. Why need a community be without a revival for
years? Somebody neglects to pray. Why need the missionary
cause and current expenses of the church suffer? Somebody
neglects to pray. Why need the church resort to unscriptural
methods to raise money? Somebody neglects to pray. Oh, for a
praying church! Brother, sister, apply this directly to your own
heart. Are you neglecting to pray ?" – C. E. Cornell

"Prayer is not designed to inform God, but to give man a sight of
his misery; to humble his heart, to excite his desire, to inflame
his faith, to animate his hope, to raise his soul from earth to
heaven." – Adam Clarke

"They who pray not, know nothing of God, and know nothing of the
state of their own souls." – Adam Clarke

"This Pentecostal movement is something which God has started
at high speed, but the faster we go the greater the need of
holiness. The more power we have, the more we need to have
every obstacle cleared out of the way. That which cannot be
noticed in an old dead church can wreck a revival in a Pentecostal
church. May God give us holiness with our Pentecost, for we
surely need it. No revival can continue with the blessing of God
upon it that does not have a high standard of holiness." – Donald Gee

"Do the Pentecostals look back with shame as they remember
when they dwelt across the theological tracks, but with the glory
of the Lord in their midst? When they had a normal church life,
which meant nights of prayers, followed by signs and wonders,
and diverse miracles, and genuine gifts of the Holy Ghost? When
they were not clock watchers, and their meetings lasted for hours,
saturated with holy power? Have we no tears for these memories,
or shame that our children know nothing of such power?"
 - Leonard Ravenhill

"The very truths that gave birth to the Pentecostal movement are
today generally rejected as too strong." – Frank Bartleman

"Praying without faith is like trying to cut with a blunt knife - much
labor expended to little purpose." - James O. Fraser

"How little chance the Holy Ghost has nowadays. The churches
and missionary societies have so bound Him in red tape that they
practically ask Him to sit in a corner while they do the work
themselves." - C.T. Studd

"The GREATEST HINDRANCES to the evangelization of the world
are those within the Church." - John R. Mott

"Let us advance upon our knees." - Joseph Neesima

"You must GO forward on your knees." - J. Hudson Taylor

"Satan does not care how many people read about prayer if only
he can keep them from praying. When a church is truly convinced
that prayer is where the action is, that church will so construct its
corporate activities that the prayer program will have the highest
priority." - Paul E. Billheimer

"On the ground of our own goodness we cannot expect to have our
prayers answered. But Jesus is worthy, and for His sake we may
have our prayers answered. There is nothing too choice, too costly,
or too great for God to give Him. He is worthy. He is the spotless,
holy Child, who under all circumstances acted according to the
mind of God. And if we trust in Him, if we hide in Him, if we put
Him forward and ourselves in the background, depend on Him and
plead His name, we may expect to have our prayers answered."
 - George Müller

"Prayer is buried, and lost and Heaven weeps. If all prayed the
wicked would flee from our midst or to the refuge." - Evan Roberts

"Prayer is the midwife of mercy, that helps to bring it forth."
 - Matthew Henry

"You may as soon find a living man without breath as a living
saint without prayer." - Matthew Henry
