No man is greater than his prayer life.
So said the late-great Leonard Ravenhill. Born in 1907 in Yorkshire, England, Ravenhill became one of England’s most powerful evangelists; later moving to the United States to preach and pray. Though he died in November 1994, his words are still pithy and practical today as they were decades ago.
One of Leonard Ravenhill’s greatest passions was revival. He wrote several books on the subject and often commented that prayer is the essential ingredient in revival. With his classic play on words and profound insights, his book Revival Praying is filled with encouragement and conviction on the subject of prayer, especially in light of revival.
Our generation is in desperate need of revival, and unless the Church of today becomes a praying Bride, we will find ourselves a perishing Body.
Ravenhill’s books are always a delight to read. Nourishing, Bible-focused, soul-stirring, and convicting, if you haven’t read Why Revival Tarries or Revival Praying you need to add them near the top of your list (along with every other Leonard Ravenhill book).
