CULTIVATING A CULTURE OF ENDLESS
PRAYER & WORSHIP
At the Great Southwest Prayer Center, all are welcome to come and go freely and to stay in the prayer room as long as they like. 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.
We seek to be a furnace of prayer for the city of Katy; a place where the heart of God is being ministered to night and day as well as a place of encounter for the community.
Our heart is that God would find a dwelling place here.
The phrase “house of prayer” is from Isaiah 56:7, where it is used twice. “[These foreigners] I will bring to My holy mountain and give them joy in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations." Jesus went on to quote this scripture in the New Testament (Matt. 21:13, Mark 11:17) and we take Him seriously.
We are in the midst of a global worship movement, focused on prayer and intimacy with Jesus. It is vital that prayer becomes enjoyable for every believer!
When King David instituted the tabernacle, he knew that worship and devotion were major components of day-and-night intercession. We are seeking to emulate this heavenly model, found in Revelation 5:8. We call this particular model “harp and bowl" intercession. Since God is a MUSICAL, CREATIVE, ARTISTIC Being and we have been formed in His very image, almost every person finds solace, comfort, or joy in creative expressions. In heaven, music and verbal expression (prayer) are never separated from one another. We base most of our prayer meetings in the GSWPC upon this concept and value.
Pleasure and joy are indispensable to the house of prayer. God assured us through the prophet Isaiah that He would give us joy in the place of prayer (see Isa. 56:7). The psalmist said, “At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Ps. 16:11).
In the house of prayer, we are operating under a paradigm of a God who is beautiful, fascinating, and full of delightful pleasures. These qualities are inexhaustible on this side of eternity and are a worthy and wise pursuit for the human heart. We focus on Jesus, the Word, and maintain an atmosphere of positivity through confident, affirming, biblical prayers.
There is no substitute for personally encountering the Lord in the atmosphere of the Prayer Room. The Great Southwest Prayer Center invites you to experience this worship and prayer style for yourself. Come participate in one of our weekly worship and prayer times, or one of our special community events.
Join us as we continually stoke the flames of God's glory upon the earth- your expression matters! There is room at the GSWPC table for you.
