Revival Quotations

The story of Christian reformation, revival, and renaissance underscores that the darkest hour is often just before the dawn, so we should always be people of hope and prayer, not gloom and defeatism. God the Holy Spirit can turn the situation around in five minutes.
Os Guinness

A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!
Billy Sunday

They tell me a revival is only temporary; so is a bath, but it does you good.
Billy Sunday

When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep.
Billy Sunday

When may a revival be expected? When the wickedness of the wicked grieves and distresses the Christian.
Billy Sunday
