Why Revival Tarries - No Christian is greater than his prayer life

Good quotes must be kept somewhere, remembered and lived. The church bulletin contained a great quote from Leonard Ravenhill on prayer which I typed out to keep here in this blog for the future. I want to remember to pray.

The church has many organizers,
But few agonizers.
Many who pay, but few who pray;
Many resters, but few wrestlers;
Many who are enterprising;
But few who are interceding.
people who are not praying are playing.

Two pre-requisites of a dynamic Christian living
Are vision and passion,
And both of these are generated in the prayer closet.

The ministry of preaching is open to a few.
The ministry of prayer is open to every child of God.
Don't mistake action for unction,
Commotion for creation,
And rattles for revivals.

When we pray,
God listens to our heartbeat.
Hannah's lips moved
But her voice was not heard.
When we pray in the Spirit,
There are groanings which cannot be uttered (Rom8:26)

Tithes may build a church,
But tears will give it life.
That is the difference
Between the modern church and the early church.
Our emphasis is on paying, their was on praying.
When we have paid, the place is taken.
When they have prayed, the place was shaken (Acts 4:31)

In the matter of effective praying,
Never have so many left so much to so few.
Brothers and sisters, we need to pray.
- Leonard Ravenhill

Yes, now all the more in our 21st century. Pray. I have earlier made a point to pray daily, but that was not very successful beyond that week. Its time to restart that and pray again.
