“Some people do not like to hear much of repentance; but I think it
is so necessary that if I should die in the pulpit, I would desire to
die preaching repentance, and if out of the pulpit I would desire to
die practicing it.” - Matthew Henry

“Depend upon it, if you are bent on prayer, the devil will not leave
you alone. He will molest you, tantalize you, block you, and will
surely find some hindrances, big or little or both. And we
sometimes fail because we are ignorant of his devices…I do not
think he minds our praying about things if we leave it at that. What
he minds, and opposes steadily, is the prayer that prays on until it
is prayed through, assured of the answer.” - Mary Warburton Booth

“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 Warburton Booth

“I myself, for instance, am not especially gifted, and am shy by
nature, but my gracious and merciful God and Father inclined
Himself to me, and when I was weak in faith He strengthened me
while I was still young. He taught me in my helplessness to rest
on Him, and to pray even about little things in which another might
have felt able to help himself.” - Hudson Taylor

“Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by
prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I
prayed to the LORD my God, and made confession, and said, "O
Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and
mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His
commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have
done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts
and Your judgments.” – Daniel 9:3-5

“Our sufficiency is of God. Difficulties melt in His presence. In Him
are those mighty, overcoming energies, which accomplish the
possible and the impossible with equal readiness…The real
resources are with Him for the evangelizing and the redeeming of
the world. But He has not been able to do ‘many mighty works’ in
the non-Christian lands, because of our unbelief as a Church. We
have not possessed our possessions. God has been waiting to be
honored by the faith of a generation that would call upon Him for
really large outpourings of His power.” – J. Lovell Murray (SVM)

“Ah, prayer turns trembling saints into great victors! There is no
such thing as surrender, or even discouragement, to a man who
dwells in the secret place of the Most High and abides under the
shadow of the Almighty.” –Henry W. Frost

“I have seen many men work without praying, though I have never
seen any good come out of it; but I have never seen a man pray
without working.” - Hudson Taylor

“The men that will change the colleges and seminaries here
represented are the men that will spend the most time alone with
God…It takes time for the fires to burn. It takes time for God to
draw near and for us to know that He is there. It takes time to
assimilate His truth. You ask me, How much time? I do not know.
I know it means time enough to forget time.” - John R. Mott

"I am convinced that nothing less than a mighty Holy Ghost revival
will awaken us to a sense of our great privilege and responsibility
with regard to the missionary challenge and world evangelization."
 - Clifford Filer

“You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be
spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to
those that need you most…It is not your business to preach so
many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save
as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you
possibly can to repentance.” – John Wesley

"And we ourselves are 'saved to save' - we are made to give - to let
everything go if only we may have more to give. The pebble takes
in all the rays of light that fall on it, but the diamond flashes them
out again; every little facet is a means, not simply of drinking more
in, but of giving more out." -Lillias Trotter

"Yes, there lies before us a beautiful possible life - one that shall
have a passion for giving: that shall be poured forth to God - spent
out for man: that shall be consecrated for the hardest work and
the darkest sinners." - Lillias Trotter

“Let Christians remember, that in a season of revival as well as in
a season of coldness, the evidence of piety is to be sought in the
fruits of the Spirit. And let sinners remember that no degree of
attendance on means, no degree of fervor, can be substituted for
repentance of sin and faith in the Savior..." - William B. Sprague

“ I am born for God only. Christ is nearer to me than father, or
mother, or sister - a near relation, a more affectionate Friend; and I
rejoice to follow Him, and to love Him. Blessed Jesus! Thou art all
I want - a forerunner to me in all I ever shall go through as a
Christian, a minister, or a missionary." - Henry Martyn

“If your heart takes more pleasure in reading novels, or watching
TV, or going to the movies, or talking to friends, rather than just
sitting alone with God and embracing Him, sharing His cares and
His burdens, weeping and rejoicing with Him, then how are you
going to handle forever and ever in His presence...? You'd be bored
to tears in heaven, if you're not ecstatic about God now!” - Keith Green

“Does it grieve you my friends, that the name of God is being
taken in vain and desecrated? Does it grieve you that we are living
in a godless age...But, we are living in such an age and the main
reason we should be praying about revival is that we are anxious
to see God's name vindicated and His glory manifested. We
should be anxious to see something happening that will arrest the
nations, all the peoples, and cause them to stop and to think
again.” - Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“Oh! men and brethren, what would this heart feel if I could but
believe that there were some among you who would go home and
pray for a revival – men whose faith is large enough, and their love
fiery enough to lead them from this moment to exercise unceasing
intercessions that God would appear among us and do wondrous
things here, as in the times of former generations.” -C. H. Spurgeon
