#InspirationalQuotes of the Day

Leonard Ravenhill

One of my favourite authors is Leonard Ravenhill, a revival preacher who boldly proclaimed the truth of God’s Word. His writings on revival and prayer inspire me, and today’s quotes are shared to challenge you, too… Enjoy!

 

“Without prayer, we cannot live the Christian life. Prayer means power. More prayer means more power. Prayerlessness is disobedience, for God’s command is that men ought always to pray and not to faint. The place where the Christian stops to refuel is prayer.” (Revival Praying).

“The ugly fact is that altar fires are either out or burning very low. The prayer meeting is dead or dying. By our attitude to prayer we tell God that what was begun in the Spirit we can finish in the flesh… Away with palsied, powerless preaching which is unmoving because it was born in a tomb instead of a womb, and nourished in a fireless, prayerless soul…

No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying… The two prerequisites to successful Christian living are vision and passion, both of which are born in and maintained in prayer… The secret of praying is praying in secret. A sinning man will stop praying, and a praying man will stop sinning…

He who fears God fears no man. He who kneels before God will stand in any situation.” (Why Revival Tarries).

Let us pray – amen!

  2. Many people know me as a man of prayer, but reading these words just made me think that I still have a lot of work to do!
