    "God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon

    eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending

    His gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men who

    have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When

    He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the

    end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God."

    - H.A. Ironside

    "Being broken is both God's work and ours. He brings His

    pressure to bear, but we have to make the choice...All day long

    the choice will be before us in a thousand ways."
    - Roy Hession.

    "Let me learn by paradox

    that the way down is the way up,

    that to be low is to be high,

    that the broken heart is the healed heart,

    that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,

    that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,

    that to have nothing is to possess all,

    that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,

    that to give is to receive,

    that the valley is the place of vision."

    -Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions.

    "When we become too glib in prayer we are most surely talking to

    - A. W. Tozer

    "When filled with holy truth the mind rests."- C.H. Spurgeon

    "Some people read their Bible in Hebrew, some in Greek; I like to

    read mine in the Holy Ghost."
    - Smith Wigglesworth

    "I am convinced that many evangelicals are not truly and soundly

    converted. Among the evangelicals it is entirely possible to come

    into membership, to ooze in by osmosis, to leak through the cells

    of the church and never know what it means to be born of the

    Spirit and washed in the blood. A great deal that passes for the

    deeper life is nothing more or less than basic Christianity. There is

    nothing deeper about it, and it is where we should have been from

    the start...

    What we need is what the old Methodists called a sound

    conversion. There is a difference between conversion and a sound

    conversion. People who have never been soundly converted do not

    have the Spirit to enlighten them. When they read the Sermon on

    the Mount or the teaching passages of the epistles that tell them

    how to live or the doctrinal passages that tell how they can live,

    they are unaffected. The Spirit who wrote them is not witnessing

    in their hearts because they have not been born of the Spirit. That

    often happens." - A W Tozer.

    "With all your getting get unction." - Leonard Ravenhill

    "When the Lord reveals His will to us and we obey, our mission

    will be a success regardless of the results."
    - Chinese house

    church leaders, Back to Jerusalem movement

    "It is simply absurd to say you believe, or even want to believe, in

    Him, if you do not do anything He tells you."
    - George Macdonald

    "The saintly Andrew Bonar used to soak his pillow with tears every

    Saturday night in Scotland as people below trampled the streets

    returning from the taverns and shows. He would cry from the

    depths of his agonizing heart, "Oh! They perish, they perish!""
