The Poverty Stricken Church

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, but few prayers;
many singers but few lingerers;
lots of pastors but few wrestlers;
many fears, few tears;
much fashion, but little passion;
many interferers, but few intercessors;
many writers, but few fighters.
Failing here, we fail everywhere

Leonard Ravenhill
20th century preacher on revival
