House of Prayer

What Does it Look Like?

The House of Prayer is based on God's desire to flow through us as we pray, not only to hear and answer prayer. He uses all of our creative gifts to flow out in "all manner of prayer," going around the clock, just as the worship of Heaven goes on around God's throne day and night (Isa. 56:7; 2 Chr. 6:20).

Those who pray and worship at S-HOP form teams, which commit to a 2-hour timeslot each week. Teams generally consist of a worship leader, a prayer leader, as well as singers, musicians and others who pray. Specific types of sessions may be set aside for specific types of prayer. Some of these include:

  • Intercessory Prayer Sets: Dedicated to specific concerns... our area, country, Israel, other nations of the world, and people needing healing in mind, body, and spirit, as determined by the team.
  • Worship in the Word Sets: Based on chosen biblical passages. As the prayer leader declares the Word of God, the singers echo it back to God through spontaneous songs.
  • Devotion Sets: Contemplative worship times, directed toward adoration and ministry to God.
  • We are allowing the Lord to mold S-HOP into its own unique personality and flavor. As a result you will find a wide variety of sounds, focuses, and styles across the various teams throughout the week.

    We believe in the worship arts, so therefore, over time, our prayer and worship will include many forms of creative artistic expressions.

    Whatever the format, the underlying component of S-HOP is worship, which energizes from devotion and passion to God. Expect to experience God's presence where love for him will be stirred in your heart, and you will find yourself desiring to pour back to him from the beauty of your own creative expression.
