  • Prayer, compassion and grace

    "Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our

    constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to

    come at all."
    - D. L. Moody

    "The Christian on his knees sees more than the philosopher on

    - D. L. Moody

    "There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying

    for him."
    - William Law

    "Compassion costs. It is easy enough to argue, criticize and

    condemn, but redemption is costly, and comfort draws from the

    deep. Brains can argue, but It takes heart to comfort."

    -Samuel Chadwick

    "How careful we should be lest we misrepresent a real work of

    grace because of some things which occasionally may accompany

    it! When Whitefield was once preaching in Boston, the place was

    so packed that the gallery was thought to be giving way, and there

    was a panic in which several persons were trampled to death. But

    it would be unfair and unreasonable to blame the revival for this...

    We do not despise the great river because of the sticks and

    straws that may occasionally float on its surface."

    - William Alexander McKay (1890)

    "In every revival there is a reemphasis of the Church's missionary

    character. Men return to Calvary, and the world is seen afresh

    through the eyes of Christ. The infinite compassion of Christ fills

    the heart, and the passion evoked by Calvary demands the whole

    wide world as the fruit of His sacrifice." - John Shearer
