約壹3:22 並且我們一切所求的,就從他得著;因為我們遵守他的命令(誡命),行他所喜悅的事。

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.

「有些人禱告求聖靈的澆灌/復興,卻沒有期望會得著。聖經說,…不信神的,就是將神當作說謊的…(約一5:10) 這就是最大的罪。「指控神會說謊」是何等大的污辱和䙝瀆!」-查理斯.芬尼(Charles G. Finney)
“Some pray for the outpouring of the Spirit/revival without expecting to receive it.  “He that believeth not God hath made Him a liar…”(1 John 5:10) This, then, is the greatest sin of all.  What an insult, what a blasphemy, to accuse God of lying!” -Charles G. Finney

「人心向來都懶得尋求神。初代教會在三、四百年之後就跌倒和遠離神了,而沒有任何一代基督徒有辦法完全回到神面前。人的誤解或理解經常會自我滿足,人通常都回來一點,而不是完全地回到神面前。事實上,人不願意付上完整的代價,來完全地回到神的標準,來完全屬於神。」-法蘭克.巴托曼(Frank Bartleman),1906年阿蘇薩街復興(Azusa Street Revival)的復興者(revivalist)及代禱者, 向列國傳講悔改和復興的先知

“Quit playing, starting praying.  Quit feasting, start fasting.  Talk less with men, talk more with God.  Listen less to men, listen to the words of God.  Skip travel, start travail.”  -Leonard Ravenhill

“The first essential for the coming of the Holy Ghost into a heart today is that the heart should be cleansed from sin, for the Holy Spirit does not fill an unclean heart.  What God has cleansed; He then fills.  Finally, whom God fills, He uses.  A holy life is the authentic sign of being filled with the Spirit.”  -Leonard Ravenhill

「罪和藉口無法使我們得著更多神的祝福,只有求到復興才會使我們得著更多神的祝福。然而,復興永遠不會發生,除非有深切的悔改和恆切的禱告。」 -馬強盛/顏美娟夫婦

“Sin and excuses cannot get us more of God’s blessings, only praying down revival will get us more of God’s blessings.  However, revival will never happen unless there is deep repentance and constant prayer.”  -Johnson and Pearl

“Prayer is yielding, agreeing, and executing God’s will.”  -Johnson and Pearl
