For those praying through Operation World, we were blessed a few days ago with a series of quotes on missions (check out some awesome quotes on prayer from the book here). May these powerful quotes encourage you in your prayers for the nations.
The history of missions is the history of answered prayer.
If Jesus be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for him.
The Spirit of Christ is the Spirit of Missions, and the nearer we get to Him the more intensely missionary we must become.
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
All God’s giants are weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned that God was with them.
If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honour, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?
If God has called you to be a missionary, don’t stoop to be a king.
As long as there are millions destitute of theWord of God and knowledge of Jesus Christ,it will be impossible for me to devote time and energy to those who have both.
The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.
The weakness of much current mission work is that we betray the sense that what is yet to be done is greater than what Christ has already done.The world’s gravest need is less than Christ’s great victory.
Expect great things from God.Attempt great things for God.
Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks.Then, the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle.
Bishop Phillips Brooks
I have but one passion – it is He, it is He alone. The world is the field, and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.
Count Nikolaus Ludwig Von Zinzendorf
