Our mission is to establish communities of day & night prayer and worship who minister to Jesus, contend for break through for spiritual awakening and justice through fasting and prayer, and proclaim with demonstration the gospel of the kingdom to this generation.
OUR CORE VALUES
Intimacy with Jesus
Intimacy with Jesus is our ultimate mandate and reward.
24/7 Worship and Prayer
With an unending chorus of worship and ceaseless prayer, we desire to minister to the Lord day and night and to cry out for “speedy justice” (Luke 18) from one geographical location. In essence, our desire is to move beyond normal prayer meetings to inspire and nurture a culture of prayer (Isaiah 56:7; Psalm 132).
The Scriptures: the Word of God
“You read books to borrow from them the force to stimulate your activity, but I read books searching for the one who has written them.” – Vincent Van Gogh. The Bible is the eternal (Matthew 24:35), infallible (Psalm 12:6), unhindered (2 Timothy 2:9), and inspired (2 Timothy 3:16) Word of God and as such, we desire to search out the Scriptures to better understand them and apply them to our lives.
Interceding “for kings and all those in authority” (1 Timothy 2:1-3) is a priority. We desire to see the transformation of our every sphere of society that they would reflect the kingdom of God which is built on the foundation of righteousness and justice.
Nazirite Consecration/Fasted Lifestyle
Like John the Baptist, we desire to live a fasted lifestyle because of our devotion to the Bridgegroom, Jesus. Thus, we voluntarily refuse the legitimate pleasures of this world (Number 6) for the extreme pleasure of knowing God (Psalm 16). This passion for Jesus is born not of legalism, but out of love.
Community / Missions Base
To us, community living is not an option. We intentionally live in community because we desire to be one in heart and mind (Acts 4:32) in our pursuit of God. The constitution and “unity” of our community is more important than the passion of our prayers.
The notion of covenant and healthy freeing relationships is a profound Scriptural value that we desire to walk out within the community. Our relationships, then, are not merely humanistic friendships, but God-centered and God-ordained.
We desire to be a prophetic company who seek to be friends of God, those of whom the Lord can share His secret council. We so value the prophetic, because it deepens our relationship with the Lord. It is an essential element to thrust forth mission and the movement of the Holy Spirit.
Spiritual Influence through Aggressive Prayer and Fasting
The Scriptures make it clear that “…the kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12). To that end, we engage in aggressive prayer and intercession against the air supremacy over the powers of darkness and release the break in of the Holy Spirit and societal transformation.
Intercession for Laborers and the Harvest
Pray for and send laborers into the harvest. (Matthew 9:38) We have the very words of Jesus commanding us to pray this. His priority is our priority.
In the last days, the Lord promised to send the Spirit of Elijah who would “turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the fathers” (Malachi 4:5-6). Thus, we are committed to the principle of generational transfer through fathering and discipleship.
Because of the urgency of the hour, we believe that the House of Prayer needs to be a staging ground for holy activism and “putting feet to our prayers” (Ja 2:18-24). We believe that God initiates divine mandates with secret strategy for the purposes of effectively advancing His kingdom and the liberation of people held captive by wicked power structures, destructive cultural mindsets and policies and oppressive behavior.
Good ideas abound! We will all pour out our lives for something. Pleasure. Pain. Family. Self. Others. Jobs. Busy-ness. Prayer. Purpose. The list can go on and on. We only get 24 hours in any given day to invest our time into something. My hope, my prayer for your life as well as my own, […]
