To be much for God, we must be much with God

The following quote from Leonard Ravenhill in Why Revival Tarries was shared with me by my good friend and mentor, Sean Cordell. I thought it was worth posting here for others to read as well.

No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. The pulpit can be a shopwindow to display one’s talents; the prayer closet allows no showing off.

Poverty-stricken as the Church is today in many things, she is most stricken here, in the place of prayer. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears;

God is not prodigal with His power; but to be much for God, we must be much with God.
