Training, Activating and Networking Today’s Prayer Army to Fight the Battles of Tomorrow.

Watchmen Arise International

The ministry of Watchmen Arise International (WAI) was birthed with the mandate to raise up and activate God's prayer army through training, activation, and networking of prayer troops throughout the nations to unify the Body of Christ in mission and purpose. The ministry began in August 2009 in Lakeland, Florida with God's call to raise up a new breed of intercessors. This ministry has been running in this call ever since. In 2017, (then newlyweds) Richard and Kimberly Wilson merged Watchmen Arise International, Ekklesia House International and Revival Outreach Center in Tampa Bay, Florida. In 2021, they relocated full-time to Moravian Falls, North Carolina.

What We Do

WAI specializes in training, organizational development, and coaching services that are tailored to the prayer needs of your church, ministry, business and region.  Our goal is to get you trained and equipped in the arena of intercessory prayer and societal transformation through personal consultation, onsite training, workshops and media.
