“We Wrestle Not”

Revival tarries because we lack urgency in prayer….

We have not yet resisted unto blood in prayer; nay, we “do not even get a sweat on our souls,” as Luther put it….

A title, undeniably true of the Church today, would be “We Wrestle Not!” We will display our gifts, natural or spiritual; we will air our views, political or spiritual; we will preach a sermon or write a book to correct a brother in doctrine. But who will storm hell’s stronghold? Who will say the devil nay? Who will deny himself good food or good company or good rest that hell may gaze upon him wrestling, embarrassing demons, liberating captives, depopulating hell, and leaving, in answer to his travail, a stream of blood-washed souls?

Leonard Ravenhill
