Ruth Conlon was orphaned at three years old. During her teens she experienced brokenness , abuse and found herself to very much alone. Her young life turned into dysfunction, addiction and homelessness. In spite of a troubled beginning, she can now testify that her life has been transformed by the power of God. Her story has impacted the lives of others, and in this season, we are witnessing God using her as a catalyst to revive the hearts of both the young and the old. Ruth led the City of London House of Prayer and was trained at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City.
RUTH has inspired believers to pursue a passionate and active relationship with God. Her own passion is to see the lost and marginalised come to Christ and also to equip and empower today's believers to walk in the fullness of their calling in Christ Jesus. She speaks in a very open and informal manner, sharing her own journey from her challenging beginnings with a sincere empathy whilst bringing glory to the restorative and redemptive power through God’s love. She coordinates a house of prayer that seeks to turn hearts to the Lord and edify the ‘Body of Christ.’ Her passion is to see people encountering God as they reach higher and delve deeper into intimacy with Him. She believes in doing so people will be set free from their wounds of the past.
