 **Prayer can do anything that God can do, and as God can do anything, prayer is omnipotent.

--R. A. Torrey

 

 **We need a Revival deep, widespread, general, in the power of the Holy Ghost. It is either a general Revival or a general dissolution of the Church, the home and the state. A Revival, new life from God is the cure, and the only cure, that will stem the awful tide of immorality and unbelief.

--R. A. Torrey

 

 **The best preacher is the man who charges his gun with all he knows, and then, before he fires, puts himself in.

--Thomas Carlyle

 

 **Bells are the artillery of the clergy.

 **We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatever.

 **The Sermon on the Mount cannot be a merely human production. This belief enters into the very depths of my conscience. The whole history of man proves it.

--Daniel Webster

 

 **Lincoln.... His lack of books was an advantage instead of the opposite. His earliest textbook was the Bible. Intense study of it taught him to write great English as probably no other man has written it.

--Dr. Charles A. Richmond, 1925

 

 **In regard to this great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to men. All the good Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things desirable for man's welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found in it.

--Abraham Lincoln

 

 **All the wonders of Greek civilization heaped together are less wonderful than the simple Book of Psalms--the history of the human soul in relation to its maker.

--Wm. E. Gladstone

 

 **There are no songs comparable to the songs of Zion; no oration equal to those of the Prophets; and no politics like those which the Scriptures teach.

--John Milton

 

 **The pupil of Moses may ask himself whether all the princes of the House of David have done so much for the Jews as that Prince who was crucified.... Had it not been for Him, the Jews would have been comparatively unknown, or known only as a high Oriental Caste which had lost its country. Has not He made their history the most famous history in the world?

--Benjamin Disraeli

 

 **Even if Jesus had not been born unto Israel, even if he had borne no relation to the people of Israel, it becomes of importance for Israel to determine for itself what shall be its relation to the man who has touched the world for nearly two thousand years as has no other single figure in history.... Neither Christian protest nor Jewish lamentation can annul the fact that Jesus was a Jew, an Hebrew of the Hebrews.... It is no mean joy and no ignoble pride in us of the House of Israel to recognize, to honor, and to cherish among our brothers--Jesus the Jew.

--Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, 1913

 

 **I know not why it should be considered so strange a thing that God should make a revelation to man. If I mistake not, it would have been much stranger if he had not.... Shall not a father speak to his child?

**Apply yourself to the whole text, and apply the whole text to yourself.

--J. A. Bengel
