“If sinners be dammed, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees. Let no one GO there UNWARNED and UNPRAYED for.”
“Give me souls or take away my soul!”
“How could I spend the best years of my life in living for the honours of this world, when thousands of souls are perishing every day?”
“What greater fool could you prove yourself to be than to fail to pray and do everything possible for the salvation of as many as possible?”
“As I was walking in the fields, the thought came over me with almost overwhelming power, that every one of my flock must soon be in heaven or hell. Oh how I wished that I had a tongue like thunder, that I might make all hear; or that I had a frame like iron, that I might visit every one and say, ‘Escape for thy life! Ah sinner! You little know how I fear that you will lay the blame of your damnation at my door.”
Robert Murray M’Cheyne
“Oh, to burn out for God! All, all for Him! Jesus only! Souls! Souls! Souls! I am determined to be a winner of souls. God help me.”
Oh! For a heart that is burdened! Infused with a passion to pray;
Oh! For a stirring within me; Oh! For His power every day
Oh! For a heart like my Saviour, Who, being in an agony, prayed.
Such caring for OTHERS, Lord, give me; On my heart let burdens be laid.
My Father, I long for this passion, To pour myself out for the lost –
To lay down my life to save others – “To pray,” whatever the cost.
Lord, teach me, Oh teach me this secret, I’m hungry this lesson to learn,
This passionate passion for others, For this, blessed Jesus, I yearn.
Father, this lesson I long for from Thee – Oh, let Thy Spirit reveal this to me.
Mary Waburton Booth
“Never will I be satisfied until God works in convicting power and men and women weep their way to the cross.”
Oswald J. Smith
“Go for souls and go for the worst.”
