What is a Prayer Room?
“A 24-7 Prayer room is a creative prayer space that enables a chain of unbroken prayer, bringing friends, communities and churches together to seek the presence of God.” We prepare our room in Founders around a theme(s) and plan prayer activities for people to engage with.
Why should I use the prayer room?
1. Getaway & focus: “Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, [Jesus] said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.” – Mark 6:31&32
We can be so distracted & caught up with the busyness of life, and as He did the disciples the Lord invites us to step away with Him and spend time in His presence. Going to a physical space helps with that and that’s one of the reasons we offer the prayer room.
2. Connecting with the prayers of the church: Be encouraged by the prayers, words of encouragement and creativity of others. In the words of 24-7 Prayer “as the room begins to fill with people’s prayers and heart cries, it can reveal what God is doing in the lives of your group and helps with accountability as you pass the baton of 24-hour prayer.”
