The Birthplace of Revival
“From one point of view, and that not the least important,” wrote Principal Lindsay, in The Church and the Ministry in the Early Centuries, “the history of the church flows on from one time of revival to another; and whether we take the awakenings in the old Catholic, the medieval, or the modern church, these have always been the work of men specially gifted with the power of seeing and declaring the secrets of the deepest Christian life; and the effect of their work has always been proportional to the spiritual receptivity of the generation they have spoken to.” . . . Little prayer is the characteristic of a backslidden age and of a backslidden church. Whenever there is little praying in the pulpit or in the pew, spiritual bankruptcy is imminent and inevitable. Around us is a world lost in sin, above us is a God willing and able to save. It is our duty to build the bridge that links heaven and earth, and prayer is the mighty instrument that does the work.
