Welcome to Arise My Love Events!

God spoke with me in January of 2017,  --- “Ruth, do you remember how Prayer Gatherings were prevalent in the 80’s, 90’s? My people grew and were taught many concepts of faith and prayer. Bring back the gatherings to enable my people to be strong in the Lord and mighty to do exploits in My Name."

  • Call them, my people, together to encourage them to connect with me to discover My Divine Design for them.

  • Feed them – Lead them – Comfort Them with Gifts and Beautiful Surroundings.

  • Help them to Relax – Refresh – RESET in My Love!

  • Inspire them to “Arise” out of the ashes of failure and frustrations to a Shining life of Purpose and Peace.

  • Teach them to discern the times they are living in and to live in God’s Power.

  • Show them how to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and Fire.

  • Prepare them to be ready to meet the Lord in the air!”

“Arise My Love, My Fair One and come away with Me.” Song of Songs 2:13
