Lamenting For a Spirit-Led Movement

Historically, every great movement of God has been preceded by prayer. Last week 7,000 women came to Indianapolis to cry out to the Lord for the urgent needs of our day. The prayers expanded beyond that city—across the globe prayer groups were meeting and joining in on this night of prayer. Urgent, passionate, Scripture-shaped, God-exalting prayers were filling the airways and the heavenlies.

Perhaps you missed it?

Blair Linnes’ poem: “Where Are the Wailing Women” was gripping. Did you hear Joni Eareckson Tada’s prayer for God to have mercy on us, Tony Evans’ warning to those who are placing their trust in the political system, Jani Ortlund’s intercession for marriages, interwoven with cries for God to rescue us? Mary Kassian and I cried out for the Church and Janet Parshall appealed for God to move in our nation:

The answer to seeking the welfare of the city is found in prayer—deep, sorrowful, constant, transparent, lamenting prayer for our nation.”

    I’m so happy to have been a part of Cry Out! via simulcast. It’s a wonderful and humbling thing to be a part of God calling so many to come before His throne to pray and to continue in prayer. He is reviving and building His church. He is accomplishing His purposes. May His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Many thanks to the Revive Our Hearts/True Woman Team for all that you do in the name of Jesus. Blessings to you~~

    So glad you were a part of the simulcast, Pauline! What an awesome thing, that God would bring together so many thousands of women to pray together. May we see this continue, not just as a moment, but as a movement of prayer!
