Training, Activating and Networking Today’s Prayer Army to Fight the Battles of Tomorrow.
Watchmen Arise InternationalThe 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's home base with Ekklesia House International's location in Dover, Florida, This location serves as the Florida base camp where Richard and Kimberly provide training, activating and networking of today's prayer army to fight the battles of tomorrow.
