Hi! I am Skye Haruyama, the director for Ruach, a worship and prayer ministry based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I get the privilege to join many on the Earth in building the House of Prayer that Jesus prophesied ‘He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” Matthew 21:13.
Our heart is to gather artists and creatives in prayer; with a collection of musicians, dancers, painters, and poets. Our meetings have a variety of color that attracts a heavenly atmosphere that our city needs. Ruach focuses on unifying the city in prayer that honors God first, and stands in the gap for the lost.
Ruach started as Youth Revival, a student ministry that the Lord began in my parents’ living room. I was a sophomore in high school and 80+ students began gathering in my home to chase after the Lord. A few months later the “worship night” that a couple of friends and I wanted to have turned into 450 students in a YMCA being encountered by Jesus! Fast forward 5 years and a leadership team of creatives has formed with a heart for prayer, and a love for our city. Ruach now is a multi-generational family with a strong young adult demographic.
I have been leading Ruach/Youth Revival for five years but I am convinced that this is only the beginning! I am convinced that the Church of Cincinnati will be unified, that creatives will finally find a space to fully express what the Lord has placed in them from birth, and a move of God will sweep our city in a fresh way.
I would be honored if you would join me on this journey by partnering with me in prayer and giving to see a generation mobilized, and a city set free.
Love & Joy,
