 Re:

"When you pray, rather let your heart be without words than your words without heart"

-John Bunyan-

We don't need to be the best prayers in public or private. God doesn't answer to the cry of many words but to the cry of hearts!

Is it well with your heart? Too often we lift up words to the Lord...and what a waste of time it is to seek the best and most difficult words just to make God answer our prayer. God looks straight to our heart...He merely listens to our words!

"Man look at the outward appereance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (1 Sam 16:7)

How awesome! God looks at the heart...if we pray honestly, we may even pray our words upside-down (if possible:-P) but still God will approve our prayers and He will be pleased by them. What a wonderful promise this is, but also...what a clear warning not to waste words to "holy" prayers if our hearts are not clean. At those times, we need not pray "holy" prayers but "repented" prayers and you've got 100% guarantee that God answers those prayers!! (1 John 1:9)

In Christ,

Paul

 Re: Quotes

We sometimes talk about the price of revival, and we need to be very careful as to what we mean when we speak like this. We may place that price so high that we put revival right beyond the reach of the ordinary run of mortals. Maybe that is our way of attempting to justify God, that He has not yet, apparently, given the revival His people need.

But that is a wrong done to God and a cruelty done to his church. There is without doubt a price to be paid for revival, but it is not of necessity the long nights of prayer or excrutiating sacrifices, but of simply humbling pride to repent of sin.
Roy Hession

 Re:

A revival is no more a miracle than a crop of wheat. In any community revival can be secured from heaven when heroic souls enter the conflict determined to win or die- or if need be to win and die!- The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

-Charles G. Finney

 Re: Great Quotes 2

You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.

 Re:

When the church and the world can jog comfortably along together, you can be sure something is wrong. The world has not compromised- its spirit is exactly the same as it ever was. If Christians were equally as faithful to the Lord, seperated from the world, and living so that their lives were a reproof to all ungodliness, the world would hate them as much as it ever did. It is the church that has compromised, not the world.

-Catherine Booth
