"Wherever the Church is aroused and the world's wickedness
arrested, somebody has been praying." – A. T. Pierson

"How terrible is the cost of robbing God of time for prayer. When
we rob God of time for quiet, we are robbing Him of ourselves. It is
only in the quiet that we can really know Him and know ourselves,
and be sure that we give ourselves back to Him. Oh, for God's
sake, do not risk keeping the windows of Heaven closed by
robbing God of time."  – Gordon M. Guinness

"The missionary church is a praying church. The history of
missions is a history of prayer. Everything vital to the success of
the world's evangelization hinges on prayer. Are thousands of
missionaries and tens of thousands of native workers needed?
‘Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He send forth
laborers into His harvest.’" – John R. Mott

"Why does the Church stay indoors? They have a theology that
has dwindled into a philosophy, in which there is no thrill of faith,
no terror of doom and no concern for souls. Unbelief has put out
the fires of passion, and worldliness garlands the altar of sacrifice
with the tawdry glitter of unreality. The Holy Ghost cannot conquer
the world with unbelief, nor can He save the world with a worldly
Church. He calls for a crusade, a campaign, and an adventure of
saving passion. For this enterprise He wants a separated,
sanctified and sacrificial people." – Samuel Chadwick

"We give ourselves to prayer. We preach a Gospel that saves to
the uttermost, and witness to its power. We do not argue about
worldliness; we witness. We do not discuss philosophy; we
preach the Gospel. We do not speculate about the destiny of
sinners; we pluck them as brands from the burning. We ask no
man's patronage. We beg no man's money. We fear no man's
frown…Let no man join us who is afraid, and we want none but
those who are saved, sanctified and aflame with the fire of the
Holy Ghost." – Samuel Chadwick

"The Church gives more time, thought, and money to recreation
and sport than to prayer." – Samuel Chadwick

"The whole history of the Church is one long story of this tendency
to settle down on this earth and to become conformed to this
world, to find acceptance and popularity here and to eliminate the
element of conflict and of pilgrimage. That is the trend and the
tendency of everything. Therefore outwardly, as well as inwardly,
pioneering is a costly thing." – T. Austin Sparks

"It is a costly and a suffering thing to come up against the
religious system that has ' settled down ' here. It is far more
costly than coming up against the naked world itself. The religious
system can be more ruthless and cruel and bitter; it can be
actuated by all those mean things, contemptible things, prejudices
and suspicious things that you will not even find in decent people
in the world. It is costly to go on to the heavenlies, it is painful; but
it is the way of the pioneer, and it has to be settled that that is
how it is." – T. Austin Sparks

"’Go ye’ is as much a part of Christ's Gospel as ‘Come unto Me.’
You are not even a Christian until you have honestly faced your
responsibility in regard to the carrying of the Gospel to the ends of
the earth. What is your part in that great task?" – J. Stuart Holden

"There are great marvels in the world to-day. There is the marvel of
the disobedient Church, which hugs to itself Christian privileges
and neglects Christian obligations." – J. Stuart Holden

"It is wonderful what God can do with a broken heart, if He gets all
the pieces." –Samuel Chadwick

"It is a solemn thing to find oneself drawn out in prayer which
knows no relief till the soul it is burdened with is born. It is no less
solemn afterwards, until Christ is formed in them." – Amy Carmichael

"The evangelization of the world in this generation depends first of
all upon a revival of prayer. Deeper than the need for men; deeper,
far, than the need for money; aye, deep down at the bottom of our
spiritless life is the need for the forgotten secret of prevailing,
world-wide prayer." – Robert E. Speer

"A generation which wishes for a religion without tears must find it
difficult to adjust its beliefs to the teaching of the New Testament
and of the facts of life…" – W. R. Inge
