…To Birth Revival Through Prayer, Reconciliation, Healing and Equipping
“O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water…Because your love is better than life, my lips will glory you.” Psalm 63:1, 3
“They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers… When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.” Acts 1:14, 2:1
When we speak of “birthing revival,” we refer first and foremost to our need for personal spiritual rejuvenation and restoration. Jesus came that we might have abundant life, walk in freedom, and experience joy unspeakable and full of glory. Yet, for many women (and men), their Christian experience falls far short of the promise of the Lord Jesus.
Together, the women of Morninglight minister to one another so that we might all walk in wholeness and freedom and partake of the abundant life Jesus promised. We are the daughters of the King. As His daughters, we are invited into intimacy with Him and one another. God has a glorious plan for each of us.
It is the fervent prayer of the Morninglight team that He make us instruments of wholeness, freedom, and transformation for one another and for all to whom He calls us to minister. We long to walk in the fullness of our identity in Jesus Christ, to experience personal revival, and to be used as catalysts of healing and revival to women in the body of Christ.
Throughout the ages, as individuals experience personal revival and then come together in unity, prayer and worship across natural divisions, tremendous corporate renewal has been born. Testimonies from the early church (Acts 1 and 2), the second Great Awakening (Jeremiah Lanphier and his Wall Street prayer meeting), and the Welsh revival are just a few examples of how a few ordinary people, surrendered to Jesus and united with one another, can be used by the Spirit of God even in exceptionally difficult times. Thousands were saved in the days around Pentecost. Lanphier’s simple prayer meeting spawned 10,000 such gatherings across the US and hundreds of missionaries sent around the world. More than 150,000 lives were transformed during the Welsh revival. We believe God can and will work wonders in our day as well, through humble lives dedicated totally to Him.
What We Do
Over the years, dozens of women have testified to experiencing personal renewal through participating in Morninglight Ministries. We have seen women discover and step into their callings in musical worship, intercession, mentoring, speaking, entrepreneurship, missions, foster parenting, and many other arenas. Among us, women have borne witness to restored marriages and families, been healed from trauma and all manner of woundedness, and brought fresh energy for prayer into their churches. For these stories and those we may never know, we are deeply humbled and give all the glory and honor to Jesus Christ.
In the US, Morninglight’s activities include:
- Hosting prayer breakfasts with worship, teaching and testimony from the diversity of God’s people,
- Facilitating formal and informal mentoring relationships,
- Partnering with other women’s groups,
- Launching and providing training for “Be Transformed” discovery groups ministry in Maine, which ultimately have served hundreds of women from dozens of churches,
- Participating in and presenting Church-wide events like Connecting Point 2010, and
- Organizing interdenominational prayer meetings for personal needs, revival and the body of Christ.
