A House of Prayer

In 1988, the Holy Spirit clearly and firmly spoke to me of the Father's desire that His House be a "House of Prayer", not merely called, but actually be a "House of Prayer". The pattern of His church was never intended to one of mere formal programs, systems, or high tech fund raising. No, the Lord's House is designed to operate within the power and authority of prayer, simply. All other functions are secondary considerations.

I was provoked to ask, "What would happen within a sincere group of Christians who regularly gathered to pray and seek the face of the Lord (See II Chron. 7:14)?" Would God show up in the midst of those called people of prayer? Would those who suffer with various mental, physical or spiritual afflictions show up for prayer and actually see their need met in the "House of Prayer"? Would lost souls who have no hope in this world come under the grip of conviction and surrender their hearts to Christ? What if these hurting seekers realized that the only motive behind these "House of Prayer" people was to provided a bridge for them to have a relationship with the God of the Universe? In addition, what impact would this group have should they also combine prayer with the truths represented by I Corinthians 13, the love chapter?
