In this paper, we study the relationship between flow-invariant sets for an vector field $-f'(x)$ in a Banach space, and the critical points of the functional $f(x)$. The Mountain-Pass Lemma, for functionals defined on a Banach space, is generalized to a more general setting where the domain of the functional $f$ can be any flow-invariant set for $-f'(x)$. Furthermore, the intuitive approach taken in the proofs provides a new technique in proving multiple critical points.
