Selected Scriptures

I. THE NEED FOR FERVENT PRAYING

"You must have so much of the love of God – in your soul, that you are ready for any sacrifice or labor. You need to feel as God feels...a love for souls." – Charles Finney

"There is passion in praying that prevails. Elijah was a man of passions... All there was of him went into everything he did... Listen to his praying in the death chamber. Watch him on Mt. Carmel. Hear him plead the honor of God and unto the Lord for the affliction of the people. It is always the same: Abraham pleading... Jacob wrestling... Moses standing... David heartbroken... Jesus in a sweat of blood. Always there is the cost of passion and blood. It prevails. It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God..." – Samuel Chadwick
