"The prayers and supplications that Christ offered up were, joined
with strong cries and tears, herein setting us example not only to
pray, but to be fervent and importunate in prayer. How many dry
prayers, how few wet ones, do we offer up to God!" - Matthew Henry

"At God's counter there are no "SALE DAYS," for the price of
revival is ever the same - TRAVAIL" - Leonard Ravenhill

" The depth of a revival will be determined exactly by the depth of
the spirit of repentance." - Frank Bartleman

"'Where there is no vision, the people perish' (Prov 29:18). Where
there is no vision of ETERNITY, there is no prayer for the
PERISHING." - David Smithers

"Workers that are strangers to knee work may work up a
temporary excitement, but never will be able to secure the copious
outpourings of genuine revival power." - Martin Wells Knapp

"When God is about to give His people the expected good, He
pours out a Spirit of prayer, and it is a good sign that He is coming
towards them in mercy. Then when you see the expected end
approaching, then you shall call upon Me. Note, promises are
given not to supersede, but to quicken and encourage prayer: and
when deliverance is coming we must by prayer go forth to meet it.
When Daniel understood the 70 years were near expiring, then he
set his face with more fervency than ever to seek the Lord
(Dan. 9:2, 3)." - Matthew Henry

"Good men are afraid of the guilt of omissions." - Matthew Henry

emotion in religion. You cannot have real religion without emotion.
In Scotland they are crying for a revival, but they want a revival
without emotion, and they will never get it. There never has been a
revival without emotion and there never will be." - Donald Gee

"Whenever you touch reality in the spiritual realm, you touch
things that are so vital that any normal, healthy person cannot fail
to be moved. If we have today such ministry in our churches that
men and women cannot be moved, there is something wrong with
our preaching." - Donald Gee

"It seems to me that there are but few who really live with a
passion for God - especially a passion just to be with Him. Today
there is such a noise coming up before the throne of the Most High -
the clamor of so-called praise, singing, and joyful shouting. But I
wonder if the same people who love to sing and shout, loudly
exclaiming the the praises of God, really have such an intense
glory in their secret life with the Lord. When the meeting's over
and there's no one there to listen except the only One who matters,
do you still have that same passionate joy in your spirit, just to be
alone with the Living God?" - Keith Green

"It is in the field of prayer that life's critical battles are lost or won.
We must conquer all our circumstances there. We must first of all
bring them there. We must survey them there. We must master
them there. In prayer we bring our spiritual enemies into the
Presence of God and we fight them there. Have you tried that? Or
have you been satisfied to meet and fight your foes in the open
spaces of the world?" - J. H. Jowett

"He that leaves off prayer leaves off the fear of God. ‘You cast off
fear, and restrain prayer before God ‘ (Job 15: 4). A man that
leaves off prayer is capable of any wickedness. When Saul had
given up inquiring of God he went to the witch of Endor" - Thomas Watson

"A great many people do not pray because they do not feel any
sense of need. The sign that the Holy Spirit is in us is that we
realize that we are empty, not that we are full. We have a sense
of absolute need. We come across people who try us,
circumstances that are difficult, conditions that are perplexing, and
all these things awaken a dumb sense of need, which is a sign
that the Holy Spirit is there. If we are ever free from the sense of
need, it is not because the Holy Spirit has satisfied us, but
because we have been satisfied with as much as we have. ‘A
man's reach should exceed his grasp.’ A sense of need is one
of the greatest benedictions because it keeps our life rightly
related to Jesus Christ." - Oswald Chambers

"I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never
hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD,
do not keep silent, And give Him no rest until He establishes and
makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth." - Isaiah 62:6-7

"The angel fetched Peter out of prison, but it was prayer that
fetched the angel." - Thomas Watson

"God never denied that soul anything that went as far as heaven to
ask for it." - John Trapp

"All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for
God because they believed that God would be with them." - Hudson Taylor

"Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man
to cease from prayer." - John Bunyan

"We know the utility of prayer from the efforts of the wicked spirits
to distract us during the divine office; and we experience the fruit
of prayer in the  defeat of our enemies." - John Climacus

"No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil;
not that he practices it, but he suffers from it." - Guy H. King
