Missionary Quotations: Amy Carmichael2

“We profess to be strangers and pilgrims, seeking after a country of our own, yet we settle down in the most un-stranger-amy carmlike fashion, exactly as if we were quite at home and meant to stay as long as we could. I don’t wonder apostolic miracles have died. Apostolic living certainly has.” — Amy Carmichael

Missionary Quotations: David Wilkerson

I am the 8th generation of preachers, that dates all the way back to the Civil War. My father taught me to pray. He said, david wilkerson‘David, Elijah had 24 hours a day, just like you, and he prayed. So you find a way to pray.’ And then he would add, “God always makes a way for a praying man’

Missionary Quotations: Leonard Ravenhill

No man is greater than his prayer life.  leonardravenhill

The pastor who is not praying is playing.

The people who are not praying are straying.

We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few prayers; 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.”

Missionary Quotations: Praying John Hyde

“If we are willing to put ourselves into God’s hands, then God is willing to john hyde, missionary to Indiause us.  But there are two conditions: Obedience and purity.

Obedience in everything, even in the least, surrendering up our wills and taking the will of God.

And the next step is purity.  God wants pure vessels for His service, clean channels through which to pour forth His grace.  He wants purity in the very centre of the soul, and unless God can have a pure vessel, purified by the fire of the Spirit, He cannot use that vessel.

He is asking you now if you will let Him cleanse away part of your very life.  God must have a clean vessel He can use.”

Missionary Quotations: CT Studd3

“Christ’s call is to save the lost, not the stiff-necked; He came not to call scoffers but sinners ctstuddto repentance; not to build and furnish comfortable chapels, churches, and cathedrals at home in which to rock Christian professors to sleep by means of clever essays, stereotyped prayers, and artistic musical performances, but to capture men from the devil’s clutches and the very jaws of Hell. This can be accomplished only by a red-hot, unconventional, unfettered devotion, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Oh hallelujah!
