PREACHING IS SPIRITUAL BUSINESS


“Preaching is a spiritual business. A sermon born in the head reaches the head; a sermon born in the heart reaches the heart. Under God, the spiritual preacher will produce spiritually minded people.”

- Ravenhill


PRAYER ROOM IS THE BOILER ROOM OF THE CHURCH


“Let the fires go out in the boiler room of the church, and the place will still look smart and clean, but it will be cold. The Prayer Room in the church is the boiler room for its spiritual life. When holy passion has ceased to move the intercessors in the Prayer Room, coldness ensues, power is lost, and mortification sets in. The place still looks viable, but it is no longer a birthplace of souls.”

- Ravenhill



Inspiring Quotes

HEAL THE CHURCH, HEAL THE NATION


“I am often asked to pray for the healing of the nation. No! I am praying for the healing of the Church. Then the healing of America, Britain and other nations will follow. As the Church goes, so goes the world! Back to the sackcloth and ashes. With Isaiah we need to plead, "Oh that Thou wouldest rend the heavens, that Thou wouldest come down" (Isaiah 64:1). This much is sure, we cannot rend them, and there is no other source of life for us. We must pray.” - Ravenhill


REVIVAL GOD’S WAY


“Why revival God's way? Because we have tried every other way. We must still begin on our knees – we plead or we perish! It's Pentecost or holocaust, revival or wrath.”

- Ravenhill



THE HUMAN HEART NEEDS HOLY FIRE


“Compared to a heart that has known the fire of the Lord and allow that fire to go out, the ice-clad peaks of the Alps are warm. Metal is molten only while the fire burns; remove the fire and the metal is solid. Even so, a human heart without the heat of heaven is an iceberg.” - Ravenhill



IDENTIFICATION WITH CHRIST


“Spirituality that saves man from hell and keeps men from vulgar sins is wonderful, but, I believe, elementary. When Paul went to the Cross, the miracle of conversion and regeneration took place; then later when he got on the Cross, the greater miracle of identification took place.” - Ravenhill

NO MAN IS GREATER THAN HIS PRAYER LIFE


“No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. The pulpit can be a shop window to display one's talents; the prayer closet allows no showing off.  Poverty- stricken as the church is today in many things, she is most stricken here, in the place of prayer. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here we fail everywhere.”


- Leonard Ravenhill
