“Have you ever wondered if it is possible to get God’s attention or attract His presence? And if it is possible, then why don’t we spend more time doing those things that welcome His presence? God’s Word establishes clear principles regarding His presence. There are things that prepare for and welcome the presence of the Lord—things like prayer, unity, worship, and a broken and contrite spirit.” Rhonda Hughey
Wouldn’t you like to attract God’s attention to your city? Don’t you want to advance God’s glory where you live? There is an eternal inheritance in every person and city. The possibility for transforma-tion is possible. Isn’t it time to see God invade your city with His glorious presence? This is possible as we build the House of Prayer. God wants to come in, but we have to invite Him.
Jesus is our model as we move forward in Houses of Prayer. The greatest example of the fullness of Christ’s love can be seen in His meekness and servanthood (John 13). He was so strong, and yet He stooped so low. There is a dignity, beauty, and uniqueness about His lowliness (Matthew 11:29; Mark 10:15). Jesus was the servant of all. The weight of God’s glory is His humility.
This humility will confront the pride of the earth (Psalm 113:4-6; Isaiah 2:10-11; 49:5-7). Jesus leads with the strength of meekness and the might of humility. We must do the same. This will be a big key to the success of Houses of Prayer in our cities and churches.
Only Jesus gets the glory. It’s about advancing His glory. It’s not about a person, church, or ministry—it’s all about Jesus!
We must give God time in the prayer room. Houses of Prayer advance God’s glory. Houses of Prayer glorify Jesus.
Houses of Prayer are very do-able. God doesn’t need a large population of Christians in order to bring in His presence. He will work through a few churches that decide to unite in prayer in order to seek His presence for their city. We must have a vision (Proverbs 29:18). We need a world vision, a heavenly revelation, and prophetic insight into what God wants to do in our day. We must be like Moses and cry out to see God’s glory in our city (Exodus 33:18-19). As we do, we know that we are on the right course and are pointing in the direction of bringing glory to God through prayer.
