When 7,000 Women Gather Together and Pray

By: Kristen Clark

Sitting in a room surrounded by 7,000 Christian women is an experience unlike any other. Bethany and I are at the True Woman 2016 Conference in Indianapolis right now! If you’re not familiar with this amazing women’s conference, I highly recommend checking it out. The theme for this year’s conference is on prayer and is called “Cry Out!”

Every other year, Revive Our Hearts Ministries puts on this huge women’s conference, which brings in Christian women from all over the world.

It’s amazing to see women from different countries, cultures, and languages gather together to seek the Lord and learn more about Him.

From the beginning of this year, Bethany and I were always planning to attend, but were over-the-top excited when Revive Our Hearts contacted us and asked if we would be interested in teaching a session with Mary Kassian.


We’ve been huge fans of Mary Kassian and her “Girls Gone Wise” ministry for years, and were so honored to be asked to teach alongside her.

So, yesterday we had the amazing privilege of teaching a 3 hour workshop with Mary called, “True Womanhood for Newbies.” The sessions covered everything from a history of feminism, to how modern feminism is affecting our generation, to God’s design for the male and female, to the 3 Pillars of Biblical Womanhood (taken from Girl Defined).

All in all, the sessions were a huge success and we are so grateful to see God use His truth to impact the heart’s of young and older women.

Now…the reason I’m writing this post today isn’t to give you a play-by-play of my day here at the conference (although that could be fun!). I want to personally invite YOU to join us here, today.

If you want to experience what it’s like to worship God and pray with 7,000 Christian women – this is your chance!

Now, I know you won’t be able to jump on a plane and fly to Indianapolis, but I have a backup plan. The True Woman Conference is offering a free LIVE stream of all of their sessions, and we want you to join us. Not only will you hear amazing speakers and life changing sessions, you will have an opportunity to pray alongside 7,000+ women tonight.

You don’t have to look far to see that we live in a broken and hurting society.

The pain and devastation caused by sin is taking its toll on our land. In and of ourselves we are powerless to do anything about it. But thankfully, God is bigger! Through the power of prayer we can make a difference in our land.

Throughout history God has used the earnest prayers of women to accomplish great things for His kingdom purposes. For the first time ever, the True Woman Conference is hosting an international prayer event for women! Will you join us TONIGHT as we Cry Out to the Lord for our countries, families, siblings, and churches?

Tonight, from 7pm – 10pm (Eastern Time) 7,000 women will gather together to pray, along with 200,000 women tuning in (via live simulcast) from around the world.

Instead of just complaining about the brokenness in our culture, this is our chance to do something about it!

This is our opportunity to seek God together.

I hope you’ll join us today for the main conference sessions, and tonight for the Cry Out Event!

Here are the live stream session times (Eastern Time):

Friday, September 23:

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

    Please pray for my family, my church and my future. There are so many questions I don’t have answers too, and some days I just don’t know how to go on. It’s so hard. I’m so blessed in my life but God has given me a measure of trial and I feel like I’m failing His test. I read not too long ago in Robin Jones Gunns book, that teacher is most quiet during the test. Please pray for me that I pass it! I want to believe that God hasn’t forgotten about me, and that He cares about my feeling. I will be praying for you girls too! I anticipate your posts every day! I think God has given me a relieve in your posts while I’m waiting on Him. Thanks again and God Bless!

      Hi Tanya! I don’t know everything you are going through. But, I do know what the Bible says to us. 1 Peter 1 tells us that our faith is worth more than gold. Just like gold is refined, our faith is refined to make it better and to bring glory to Christ. Right now I’m studying 1 Peter and I would encourage you to read and study it. It was written to Christians who were being persecuted.
      Remember your strength comes from Jesus. God has not forgotten you. You are kept by the power of God through faith for a salvation to be revealed in the last time (1 Peter). Our salvation is not completed yet. Will be changed and completed when we get to heaven. Our bodies will be transformed. I think real Christians are going through a lot of trials right now. I have prayed for you and will continue to pray for you.

    I’m here!! Hopefully I get to meet you guys! 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness! This is so exciting! I went to the True Women Conference with my mom back when I was twelve. 🙂 It brings back a lot of good memories. It also reminds me of the things I was learning then, and all the ways God was reaching out to my heart. I definitely remember that crazy feeling of being part of 7,000 women praising God, led in worship by the Gettys. 🙂 It was incredible, and I’m thrilled to hear that y’all are there!

    Thanks for sharing!
