A revival is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God.   Charles Finney

Trying to run a church without revivals can be done when you can run a gasoline engine on buttermilk.  Billy Sunday

There can be no revival when Mr. Amen and Mr. Wet-Eyes are not found in the audience.   Charles Finney

I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe.   Mary, Queen of Scots

As long as we are content to live without revival, we will.   Leonard Ravenhill

The average man is not going to be impressed by our publicity, our posters or our programs, but let there be a demonstration of the supernatural in the realm of religion, and at once man is arrested.   Duncan Campbell

Revival is not just a feeling of excitement of the Lord. We get excited about many things, but excitement is not a revival if God is not the thing that gets us excited.   Jerry Falwell

A true revival means nothing less than a revolution, casting out the spirit of worldliness and selfishness, and making God and His love triumph in the heart and life.   Andrew Murray

When Holy God draws near in true revival, people come under terrible conviction of sin. The outstanding feature of spiritual awakening has been the profound consciousness of the Presence and holiness of God.   Henry Blackaby

The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.   Samuel Chadwick

Revival brings back a holy shock to apathy and carelessness.  Winkie Pratney

Present-day wickedness, apostasy and modern civilization cannot prevent revival.   John R. Rice

There are no magic formulas for revival. We cannot command it. We may await it with longing, and we are bound to express our longing in prayer.  Tom Wells

When sinners are careless and stupid, and sinking into hell unconcerned, it is time the church should bestir themselves. It is as much the duty of the church to awake, as it is for the firemen to awake when a fire breaks out in the night in a great city.   Charles Finney

You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there’s a fire. Likewise, if your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community will already know it.  Leonard Ravenhill

Every mighty move of the Spirit of God has had its source in the prayer chamber.    E.M. Bounds

Do we know a prayerfulness like that of Luther, who once said, “I have so much business to do today that I shall not be able to get through it with less than three hours’ prayer.” It is John Angel James who said “we are weak in the pulpit because weak in the closet.” Edward Payson thus writes to a brother minister: “Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, and the third thing necessary for a minister, especially if he have revivals. Pray, then, my dear brother, pray, pray, pray.”   Henry Fish

During true revival, thousands of lost people are suddenly swept into the Kingdom of God. Scenes of the lost coming to the Savior in great, and unprecedented numbers, are common. Henry Blackaby

Shall I give you yet another reason why you should pray? I have preached my very heart out. I could not say any more than I have said. Will not your prayers accomplish that which my preaching fails to do? Is it not likely that the Church has been putting forth its preaching hand but not its praying hand? Oh dear friends! Let us agonize in prayer.   C. H. Spurgeon

Revival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again.   G. Campbell Morgan
