GREENVILLE — On September 23, 1857, Manhattan businessman Jeremiah Lanphier hosted a prayer meeting at noon. While only six people showed up, within a short period of time upward of 10,000 people were meeting in various churches for prayer every day at noon. Some estimate that one million people came to faith in Christ as a result of what became known as the great Prayer Revival of 1857-58.
Now, 159 years later, we have the opportunity to gather together and cry out to the Lord. What could be more vital for such a time as this, than for women to get on their knees — together — repenting, pleading with God to have mercy, and to intervene in our world, praying for His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
On January 20 and 21, 2017, EUM Women’s Ministry will be hosting a True Woman conference called “Cry Out!” at its Worship Center, located at 1451 Sater Street in Greenville, Ohio. This conference will be comprised of video messages from Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, Janet Parshall, Mary Kassian, Stephen Kendrick, and other nationally known speakers.
Also included will be the concert of prayer, which was live streamed at EUM in September. In addition, you’ll hear from some women from EUM, share worship, and a meal. Don’t miss the powerful time of personal revival and inspiration to reach our broken and hurting world for Christ!
Register at eumchurch.org or contact Cindy Crawford at 937-548-3211, ext. 213 or [email protected] for more information. The cost for this conference is $15 if you register by January 8, and $20 after that date.
Just as the Lord used one small prayer meeting to spark a revival across this nation in 1857, it’s our prayer He would use this weekend to do a mighty work in your heart, your family, our church and our world.
Please join us in praying, “Lord, do it again!”
