  • How should we pray ?

    "Are you truly a Spirit-filled Christian? Does the term "Spirit-filled"

    describe your doctrine or your devotion?" - David Smithers

    "Spirit filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that

    glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a

    devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns.

    They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of

    God." - Samuel Chadwick

    "How is it that the soul being of such value, and God so great,

    eternity so near and yet we are so little moved?" - William Bramwell

    "Pray, O pray, my brother! never, never quit your hold of the

    fullness of God; for time is nearly over, and if this fullness be lost it

    will be lost forever. I am astonished that we do not pray more, yea,

    that we do not live every moment as on the brink of the eternal

    world, and in the blessed expectation of that glorious country."

    - William Bramwell

    "A real minister of the gospel is a man of prayer. Prayer is his

    grand employment, his safety, his first and perpetual duty; and

    under grace, the grand source of his consolation. Our instructions

    will be always barren, if they be not watered with our tears and

    - Thomas Coke

    "A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge,

    even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry

    for God."
    - Leonard Ravenhill

    "A zealous man feels that like a lamp he is made to burn; and if

    consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God

    appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If

    he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh

    and pray." - J. C. Ryle

    "Lord grant that the FIRE of my heart may melt the lead in my

    feet." - Unknown

    "A minister, who prays not, who is not in love with prayer, is not a

    minister of the Church of God. He is a dry tree, which occupies in

    vain a place in Christ's garden. He is an enemy, and not a father,

    of the people. He is a stranger, who has taken the place of the

    shepherd, and to whom the salvation of the flock is an indifferent

    thing." - Thomas Coke

    "In Shansi I found Chinese Christians who were accustomed to

    spend time in fasting and prayer. They recognized that this fasting,

    which so many dislike, which requires faith in God, since it makes

    one feel weak and poorly, is really a Divinely appointed means of

    grace. Perhaps the greatest hindrance to our work is our own

    imagined strength; and in fasting we learn what poor, weak

    creatures we are -
    dependent on a meal of meat for the little

    strength which we are so apt to lean upon." - J. Hudson Taylor

    "The Azusa revival began where every revival should rightly begin -

    in repentant tears. It began in tears, it lived in tears, and when the

    tears ended the Azusa revival ended."
    - A. G. Osterberg
