Where are the Wailing Women?

7,000 women gathered in Indianapolis in September 2016. To put a visual on it, the same number of people God had reserved for himself in the wicked days of Jezebel and Ahab.

Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him. 1 Kings 20:29

More women were praying all over the world that night by simulcast. All across the United States and in at least 15 other countries, women gathered for hours to pray. Revive our Hearts held a prayer meeting during their True Women conference. I did not attend the conference but was able to participate in a local simulcast.

One of the things I have been waiting for them to release was this spoken word poem by Blair Linne. It is powerful and convicting. May we all be changed into the likeness of his Son in this day which we were born for.

This is what the Lord Almighty says, "Consider now! Call for the wailing women to come; send for the most skillful of them. Jeremiah 9:17
Call for the wailing women to come and cry out-women who love Jesus more than their temptation toward indifference.

It is time to seek the Lord. May he stir our hearts to confess our sins and pray boldly that God might heal our land. May we be among those who are preserved by God, whose knees will not bow down to the gods of this age, and who will kiss The Son (Psalm 2) rather than the feet of Baal.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
