“Revival is the highest kind of Christianity. I desire to give my life, which is all I have to give, to helping others to find it also.” －Evan Roberts
“Bend the Church, and save the world,” is the watchword of this revival. -The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses
“You must ask the Spirit to bend you afresh. Oh Lord, bend me!" －Evan Roberts.
“Prayer is the secret of power.” －Evan Roberts
“The depth of revival will be determined exactly by the depth of the spirit (attitude) of repentance. And this will hold true for all people, at all times." -Frank Bartleman, received from God in early 1905.
“The deepest repentance and humility and our own frailty and weakness must be realized before we can know God’s strength.” -Frank Bartleman
“How much you pray shows how much you depend on God.” －unknown
“Only when true revival comes will the world feel the reality of God, experience God’s holy presence, repent of their sins, and stop their rebellion against God." -Johnson and Pearl
Today, what are most churches busy doing? Certainly most churches are not busy preaching on sin, true repentance, self-denial, carrying the cross daily, and the true gospel. Most churches are not warning sinners about the reality of hell; they are not preaching on holiness, loving God and hating sin, not preaching against be conformed to the world, and not preaching about serious prayer and hungering for true revival. Most churches are busy going after number, offerings, diluting the gospel, perverting the gospel, and busy building their own little kingdoms. Most churches are busy organizing fake Christian social clubs; they are NOT busy building a house of prayer and the church that truly reveres God.” -Johnson and Pearl
“The main purpose of the church is to get God to walk into church instead of getting people to walk into church. Just because people came to church, that doesn’t mean God came to church; but if God came to church, so will the sinners!" (Acts 2-4) -Johnson and Pearl
“Only a life of prayer and meditation will render a vessel ready for the Master’s use.” －George Muller
“The Lord is my Shepherd. I fear no want.” All things necessary He has provided, and will provide. I wish no personal following, only the world for Christ.” －Evan Roberts

Acts 2:1-4 King James Version
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:16-18 King James Version
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
“What is the secret of this (revival) movement? On man’s part, believing, persevering prayer; on God’s part, the promised answer.” －Evan Roberts
“The depth of our repentance will determine the depth of our revival." -Frank Bartleman
“All of the people who have been converted have been saved in answer to prayer. Every saint in glory is there in answer to somebody’s prayer. On the other hand, all who have missed heaven have missed it through the neglect of prayer, and have gone down to the regions of eternal death from lack of prayer. The powers of darkness are felt everywhere from lack of prayer. The devil has paralyzed to a great extent the church from lack of prayer.” －S. B. Shaw, The Great Revival in Wales
“The powers of darkness are felt everywhere from lack of prayer. The devil has paralyzed to a great extent the church from lack of prayer. Many ministers have lost their power from lack of prayer. And many millions now throng the broad way to death from lack of prayer. All of the great victories in the Christian Church have taken place in answer to prevailing prayer.” －Shaw, S. B.. The Great Revival in Wales
“Revival does not come because of a method or formula, neither does it come by unity without repentance and prayer. It comes only because of the humble, hungry, and pure heart of a praying Christian. Revival happens when a vessel decides to abandon the dead religious activities of today’s carnal Christianity to seek an intimate relationship with God through repentance and prayer.” -Johnson and Pearl
“There are no spiritual short cuts in God’s kingdom, only spiritually short midgets.” -Johnson and Pearl
Brainerd could say of himself: “I cared not where I lived, or what hardships I went through, so that I could but gain souls for Christ. All my desire was for the conversion of the heathen, and all my hope was in God.”
Matthew Henry said: “I would think it a greater happiness to gain one soul to Christ than mountains of silver and gold to myself.”
“I have made the choice, I choose that this life shall be holy, used for God at any cost, at any price.” －Kathryn Kuhlman
“death to self, two wills having becoming as one." －Kathryn Kuhlman
“I surrender unto Him all there was of me; everything! Then for the first time I realized what it meant to have real power.” －Kathryn Kuhlman
“Anything that you love more than Jesus is an idol, I don’t care what it is." -Leonard Ravenhill
“Faith, holiness, and power grows when Christians turn to the Bible, fasting, prayer, and worship.
Doubt, worldliness, and sin grows when Christian turn to TV, the news, internet, and temptations.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Today, we must truly and deeply repent, we must forsake the unbiblical 30-second “sinner’s prayer", we must pray continually, we must preach the cross and the pure gospel of Jesus Christ, then we will have true revival." -Johnson and Pearl
“Any theology that does not emphasize the pure gospel and revival are just false theology on paper and empty talk." -Johnson and Pearl
“If Bible knowledge, sermons, theology, and a diluted gospel can save our nation, then the nations would NOT be more and more morally depraved and ungodly year after year. Today, what every nation and every church need the most are the pure gospel and true revival." -Johnson and Pearl
