Happy New Year! As we settle into the new year of 2016, let us not forget that a vibrant prayer life may become more than just an aspirational goal! For those willing to get involved, in 2016 it can become a reality. Contact Us today if you feel led to be involved within our ministry. As we hit off the new year, we are extremely thrilled to have been featured on Spur Ottawa’s site this month as we celebrate our one year anniversary!  

Join us in celebration of our one year anniversary at Burning Hearts House of Prayer. The theme of the night will be Praise and Worship. Worship will be lead by our very own, Colin Bernard. We will be praying with churches from around the city in conjunction with Love Ottawa, and City on Our Knees. Refreshments will be served. Don’t forget to RSVP HERE if you haven’t already! See you on January 10th, 2016!

God Bless you in the year to come!
