A gathering uniting Christians from across the nation to pray for revival is set to take place at Wembley Arena on January 7th 2023. ‘The Cry’, hosted by Reverend Dr Betty King, will bring together a range of influential voices from across the Body of Christ to lead thousands of people in a day of prayer, intercession and worship, in order to trigger revival across the nations.
Confirmed speakers include Pastor Agu Irukwu (Jesus House), Paul Manwaring, Tiffany Buhler (David’s Tent), Bishop John Francis (Ruach ministries) with many more names to be unveiled. The event has two main focuses – empowering young people and refreshing the Body of Christ.
For the younger generation, the event will tackle a range of issues including mental health, addiction, sexual impurity and lack of identity with the hope of bringing wholeness and healing to this generation. The gathering also aims to strengthen those who are tired and discouraged – empowering the Body of Christ in general.
Dr Betty King, the event host & founder, said: ‘In a time of uncertainty, the Church needs to rise up and meet the needs of the people. The Cry is a call to repentance and awakening.’ Dr Betty King continues: ‘We believe this is a Kairos moment. We are running on God’s calendar and this is a divine appointment. January 7th is significant according to the Jewish Calendar.
This is when Queen Esther came into power to save a nation. ‘Likewise, we are believing for people to come into the fullness of their identity in Christ and move in power and authority to bring a major harvest of souls.’
A call to unity is also at the heart of ‘The Cry’, with the event focused on uniting the Church across denominations, ethnicities, culture and the generations. This will also be reflected in the range of contributors featuring throughout the day including upcoming ‘Next Generation’ youth leaders such as Nia-Cerise Conteh and Tyrone Junior.
