ABOUT GLOBAL PRAYER HOUSE MISSIONS BASE







VISION



People from all walks of life are welcome at Global Prayer House Missions Base. We aim to grow in passion for Jesus and compassion for people. Rooted in the love of God and His Word, we desire to love and obey Him, to have fellowship with each other, and to minister to others in the power of the Spirit. When believers gather in one place, with one heart and one vision, something special happens—hearts are healed, hope is restored, faith grows, and relationships are forged to stand the test of time.



ABOUT US



Around 1000 BC, King David established a tabernacle in Jerusalem and set a precedent of night and day worship before the Lord that continued at various times throughout Israel and Judah's history. Each time this order of worship was reintroduced, spiritual breakthrough, deliverance and military victory followed. Likewise, throughout the centuries, groups in Ireland, Germany, South Korea, and elsewhere across the globe have established day and night centres of prayer and worship. Following in this tradition, the Global Prayer House was established. The Lord has called us to be a community of believers committed to God, each other and to establishing a prayer house in Medicine Hat, Alberta—a solemn assembly gathering corporately to fast and pray in the spirit of the tabernacle of David.   We are committed to the Great Commission and preaching the Gospel to the world. We believe it is on God's heart that His house will be a house of prayer for all nations. The work of our ministry includes equipping and sending out missionaries as dedicated intercessors and evangelists who work to see revival within the Church and a harvest among those searching for God. We take seriously the mandate to train believers to love Jesus and others wholeheartedly as together we go forth to preach the Word, heal the sick, serve the poor, plant houses of prayer, and proclaim the return of Jesus across the earth.



THE PRAYER ROOM



On February 18, 2010, Global Prayer House was established. The prayer room is the foundation of all ministry and outreach at the Global Prayer House Missions Base and is designed to reflect the tabernacle of David. It is a place where prayer and worship is combined, where we come into agreement with what is on God’s heart through intercession, and come into agreement with who God is through worship. In heaven, prayer and worship are not separated from each other—Revelation 5:8 says “the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls, full of incense…” The harp speaks of worship, while the bowls speak of the intercessory prayers of the Church. We believe God is ministered to in the way He loves when prayer and worship flow together. This also unlocks our hearts to partner with Him in who He is, and what He wants to do in the earth.

We invite you to visit the prayer room in person. All are welcome to come and go freely. While in the prayer room, feel free to join in with the corporate worship and prayer, read your Bible, study a favorite commentary, write in your journal, or engage in private prayer. You may sit, stand, or pace up and down the aisles. Whatever you do, we ask that you do it in a manner that honors and serves the other people in the room.



INTERCESSORY MISSIONARIES



We refer to our full-time staff at Global Prayer House as “intercessory missionaries.” All of our full-time staff at the Global Prayer House Missions Base raise their own financial support to work as full-time missionaries who reach out to others from a lifestyle of prayer and worship. For more information on staff at Global Prayer House, please visit the staff page.



OUTREACH



We believe we are better equipped for ministry when our lives are rooted in prayer and worship and focused on intimacy with God, as we intercede for a breakthrough of the fullness of God’s power. This is why all outreach from Global Prayer House springs from the prayer room. This is seen best in our two month (twice a year) outreach through our Youth With A Mission Discipleship Training Schools where a team goes into a 2nd or 3rd world nation with the Gospel. Locally, we also do outreach in our high schools, through Pursuit Groups, the prayer room, and various training events. We believe in reaching out with the Gospel of Jesus and equipping people for ministry.
