Why a House of Prayer
“Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” Matt. 6:10
Right now in Heaven there is prayer and worship happening in the Throne room of the Lord. The Word tells us that there has been,is, and will be prayer and worship going on before the Throne of God FOREVER. This is our highest calling, to commune with our Lord, to pour out and offer everything we have before Him.
“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field” Matt. 13:44
The Lord wants our extravagant worship poured out over Him, He wants all that we have. There is no better way to give Him this than through day and night prayer and worship. To be with Him, to be pouring out all we are before His throne, is our greatest honor and privilege. How blessed are we to have this intimacy with the Lord, that we can give Him all of us! So that He can equip us to live as He lived; loving, healing and teaching people.
“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land...” Ezk. 22:30
God is looking for those who would make intercession before Him on behalf of the land. He is looking for those with His heart for His people. He desires all to come to Him, and He wants to use His Church to get them there. Prayer is paving the way for that to happen. All activity of the Kingdom is to be initiated, maintained, and accomplished through prayer.
OUR MISSION & VISION
The mission of the GAP House of Prayer is to offer continual prayer, praise and adoration to the King of kings, Jesus. We are a place set apart for Him in the city of Murfreesboro. A place on purpose for believers to gather and pour out extravagant worship to our Lord. As we do this, people will be drawn into a more intimate place with the Father and be refreshed and energized to be His Light in the world.
We believe that communion with the Lord is our highest calling and every believer should operate out of the secret place of prayer, worship and a loving relationship with the Lord. It is so easy to become like Martha, doing everything, staying busy and never slowing down long enough to hear from the Lord. The Gap House of Prayer is a place where we can slow down and be a Mary in a Martha world.
WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT
PRAYER & WORSHIP
We are about night & day prayer and worship to our King Jesus because He is WORTHY. “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”. Through this purposeful time and place of prayer and worship we are bringing Heaven to earth and changing the atmosphere in our community & region.
TRAINING & DISCIPLESHIP
We grow better together! Iron sharpens iron, and we want to be a place for Believers to learn and grow in Kingdom principles so they can then go and disciple others! Check out what book studies or classes we have available now.
COMMUNITY & OUTREACH
We are a family here & we love to be together! We offer small group times, Bible studies, and outreach nights to grow in our bond of love together. Our lives are an outreach to those who do not yet know Christ, and it’s our heart to tell all about the extravagant love of Jesus our Savior.
ONE THING HOUSE
27:4 HOUSE OF PRAYER
We aim to cultivate an atmosphere of praise & worship to the King of kings and Lord of lords. We believe the way to do that is to seek Him first. Our heart and vision here is to create a culture of people who are fascinated by Jesus. We are worshippers, we are intercessors, but first we are seekers. We seek to know Him more. We are a house of One Thing fascination. Our one thing, the thing we yearn for and seek after hard, is Jesus Christ. We seek to know Him, to dwell in His house and behold His beauty. We have seen the impact of nourishing our devotional lives first and foremost. Truly seeking to know Him, our One Thing, will produce a life abundantly full and overflowing with the richness and wonders of who He is. To know Him more is our one pursuit, and we hope to ignite that spark in others.
