What to Expect
We hold worship and prayer meetings every evening. Our worship styles vary from live to pre-recorded material. We begin with a 15-20 min in stillness to prepare ourselves to worship. The leader gives his or her focus and revelation for the evening. Then we have a time prayer using apostolic prayers and intercede using scriptures intertwined with worship in between. A Harp and Bowl model like in Revelation 5:8, we aim to intercede for one hour like in Matthew 26:40-41 And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? 41“Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” the Last 20 minutes, we invite you to share any personal needs to lift up before the Father.
Our prayer leaders are all volunteers who have a deep passion for prayer; who take time out of their busy lives to lead each meeting. By viewing our Events page you can find out what events are taking place and special prayer teachings by the leaders. If you are a young adult or prayer leader at your church, we would love to have you on board to lead a meeting. Contact us for an interview. We will put you with other prayer leaders to assist them and learn under their leadership. Please contact us if you would like to lead worship on any given night. We hold that every worshipper using his/her gift for the Lord will be given an honorarium to honour them as David did. put in verses. Read.

Our prayer meetings start every evening at 7pm, and end around 9pm.
Sunday – Praise & Worship, Testimony & thanks offering
On Sundays, we bring our praises to God and worship Him in spirit and in truth followed by an exhortation, testimony and thanks offering. There will be an opportunity to give to the ministry, free-will offering. Then we move into prayer for one another. Some nights we hold live worship by local artists; while other nights, prayer leaders may choose to hold alternate worship styles (ie: hymns, pre-recorded material, instrumental worship). If you are gifted with music and you are a worshipper, contact us for an interview? We give an honorarium as we believe that a worker is worthy of his wages.
Monday – Intercede for Unity & Father’s hearts Luke 1:17 & Malachi 4:5
On Mondays, be ready to share a testimony about yourself or someone you know. This encourages and builds up our faith and brings glory to God. Psalm 145:6 says: “They tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.” Enter into his gates with thanksgiving in your hearts with stories of His faithfulness.

There is a lot of confusion in the world and we want God to build our house or we will labour in vain. Let us turn our hearts towards our children and pray for our children’s hearts to turn to us. Mal 4:5 and Luke 1:17
Let us intercede on their behalf and invite them to join us so we can speak life and peace over them. Psalm 127:1,3-5 Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders’ labour in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. 3 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
Thursday – Missionaries Here & Abroad: Praying for missionaries means fruitful labour on the part of the missionary and the intercessor. If you are a missionary embarking on a mission, we invite you to come so we can pray with you and continue to lift you up while you are on the mission. There’s nothing we love more than hearing how God is moving in your life and in the lives of others! Romans 10:14-15

We also added The Persecuted church. Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Isaiah 62:6&7 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,
7 and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. Read also Romans 9-11 and praying for our city and nation. Jeremiah 29:7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. Psalm 2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. Join us and ask for the foremost nation Israel and all nations.
Saturday – Devotional and hearing God This is a day where we receive as we have been giving all week. We start by being still for the first 15 min and go into worshipping God. We invite his presence and sit in quietness and rest in a Spirit-filled atmosphere. Isaiah 30:15This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength but you would have none of it. We miss out on the intimacy with the Lord if we don’t come and seek his face and hear from him. Be sure to bring your bible and journal to write what you hear or see what the Lord is showing you. He may give us a vision or a prophetic word for ourselves or others.
