"Are you living for the things you are praying for?" - Austin Phelps

“Oh, to realize that souls, precious, never dying souls, are
perishing all around us, going out into the blackness of darkness
and despair, eternally lost, and yet to feel no anguish, shed no
tears, know no travail! How little we know of the compassion of
Jesus!" - Oswald J. Smith

“Wise leaders should have known that the human heart cannot
exist in a vacuum. If Christians are forbidden to enjoy the wine of
the Spirit they will turn to the wine of the flesh....Christ died for our
hearts and the Holy Spirit wants to come and satisfy them." - A. W. Tozer

“A prayerless man is proud and independent, and any church that
neglects corporate prayer is sadly no better. Only God's humble
and needy children take the time to pray. Everyone else is just
going through the motions and naively trusting in their own
strength!” –David Smithers

"We need a baptism of clear seeing. We desperately need seers
who can see through the mist--Christian leaders with prophetic
vision. Unless they come soon it will be too late for this generation.
And if they do come we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the
name of our worldly orthodoxy." -A. W. Tozer

"The time factor in prayer is very important. In the exercise of
prayer God is not tied to our clocks. Neither is He at the other end
of the phone to receive and answer our two-minute calls. It takes
time to know the mind of God, to shut out the material things of
earth and to be wholly abandoned." -Hugh C. C. McCullough

"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and
desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen
or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the
kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." - John Wesley

"He can do all things who prays well. All soul-winners have
conquered on their knees. Wherever the secret of prevailing prayer
is found, something supernatural will come to pass." - G. F. Oliver

"No system of doctrine, preaching and worship which fails to
develop prayer, faith, spiritual labor, and success in converting
souls from sin, can long have the face to claim to be the religion of
Jesus Christ!" -William W. Patton

"The true man of God is heartsick, grieved at the worldliness of the
Church...grieved at the toleration of sin in the Church, grieved at
the prayerlessness in the Church. He is disturbed that the
corporate prayer of the Church no longer pulls down the
strongholds of the devil." - Leonard Ravenhill

"There are different kinds of fire; there is false fire. No one knows
this better than we do, but we are not such fools as to refuse good
bank notes because there are false ones in circulation; and
although we see here and there manifestations of what appears to
us to be nothing more than mere earthly fire, we nonetheless prize
and value, and seek for the genuine fire which comes from the altar
of the Lord." - William Booth

"We must continue in prayer if we are to get an outpouring of the
Spirit. Christ says there are some things we shall not get, unless
we pray and fast, yes, "prayer and fasting." We must control the
flesh and abstain from whatever hinders direct fellowship with God."
 - Andrew Bonar

"The history of missions is the history of answered prayer. From
Pentecost to the Haystack meeting in New England and from the
days when Robert Morrison landed in China to the martyrdom of
John and Betty Stam, prayer has been the source of power and
the secret of spiritual triumph." - Samuel Zwemer

"This much is sure in all churches, forgetting party labels; the
smallest meeting numerically is the prayer-meeting. If weak in
prayer we are weak everywhere." - Leonard Ravenhill

"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on
of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is
that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it
simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain
precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get
nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop
using it as a substitute for obedience." - A. W. Tozer
