A House of Prayer
Isa 56:7 – Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.
In the Old Testament, we see the “house” of the Lord as a place of prayer. In this New Testament era we live in we see the house of God as a “people” of prayer. We, the church, are the house of God. God says His house shall be called a house of prayer. Therefore, the church must be a house of prayer.
We are the living stones that God is using to build His house today. We must pray to live the Christian life effectively. Building the kingdom mandates prayer. We must pray to survive. We must pray to thrive.
God’s people should join in corporate and individual prayer. In Acts 3:1 “…Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer…” Notice the church had a set time of prayer. Believers should be a part of the prayer ministry of their church. The miraculous is born out of united prayer
Prayer strengthens the church just as it does individuals. A praying church is a strong church. A praying church is a productive soul-winning church. A praying church is a spiritual church. A praying church is a soul-winning church.
