The Prayer Room Missions and Value

The Prayer Room Purpose

The Prayer Room exists to usher in city-wide revival through night and day worship and intercession. In preparation for the Lord’s second coming we labor before the Lord in training up a community of End-Time Forerunners that embrace prayer and fasting, service and giving, and dedication to the sacrificial lifestyle found in the Sermon on the Mount.

The Prayer Room Values

  1. We value first and foremost intimacy with God. Our primary purpose and petition in the House of Prayer is to encounter the God who so tenderly loves us. We value the simple devotion to a life of “one thing”- to see the beauty of God - with the confidence we will find our highest expression of love and joy in connecting with His heart. We believe corporate prayer is the place of encounter. The original purpose of the tabernacle was to have a place where everyone who had a desire to seek the Lord could go and meet with Him (Ex. 33:7). David’s heart drew up the plains for 24/7 prayer and worship out of a desire to simply be with God (Ps. 27:4). We want to live out the Greatest Commandment to its fullness (Mt. 22:37).
  1. We value the Lord’s call to us as a ministry that He is going to use to help birth 24/7 prayer in the Metro-plex. A prophet confirmed the timely word that God was going to launch 24/7 prayer on a grand scale using this group. Our response is to live out this call with faithfulness, fervor and persistence, in the place of night and day intercession.
  1. We value true revival; breakthrough in the Church and transformation in our city understanding that unless the Church ushers in God’s Presence through prayer the Church of DFW will not come into her full destiny. Historic revivals are heavenly seasons where God manifest His kingdom in power. They are divine hours in which Heaven opens and the kingdom of darkness is plundered. Our desire is to see the “greater works” that Jesus promised, along with justice at every level of society, and absolute power over all forms of darkness. We keep the assurance that the Lord’s kingdom will come primarily in context to prayer (Mt. 6:10). God promises that He will use the prayers of His people to bring justice and breakthrough swiftly if they call to Him night-and-day (Lk. 18:8).
  1. We value the ministry of the Word. Our heart is to see anointed evangelism that has the ability to save the lost in radical numbers. We maintain a belief that only through anointed intercession comes anointed preaching. The strongest witness to the Gospel is an internal conviction upon the hearts of those who will hear the message. Over and over throughout history this “formula” has be proven effective that resulted in mass numbers of converts. 24/7 houses of prayer have brought about nearly every remarkable missions movement that we know to this day. When we enter into a “spirit of prayer” undoubtedly the lost will be saved. 24-hour prayer will gather in the Great end-time Harvest of souls.
  1. We value Apostolic Christianity that embraces a New Testament lifestyle. Apostolic Christianity is Church centered, it results in wholeheartedness, its ministries flow from intimacy with God, it posses a missionary spirit, it embraces persecution, it engages in God’s purpose for Israel, and it is lead by apostolic ministry. Entering into this lifestyle we understand the need for continual corporate prayer as it was mandatory in the lives of New Testament believers found in the book of Acts (Ac. 1:14, 2:42, 6:4). We believe that an apostolic community can only exist around the structured of 24/7 prayer. We as the end-time Church are called by God to victory, wholeheartedness, and relevance.
  1. We value prophecy and deep understanding in the Word, especially end-time revelation. The Psalms, in themselves, are evidence of the divine insight into the future given to those who ministered in night and day worship and intercession. Our motive is to be equipped in understanding as these last days unfold and to act as a voice to prepare the Church for the coming judgment. We desire to know God’s heart and His plan for the last generation, to be prepared and to prepare others. There is end-time revelation reserved only for the praying Church (Da. 12:4, 11:32-33).
  1. We value city wide Church unity and believe that it’s primary expression is found only within the frameworks of unified prayer. Corporate prayer is God’s answer for unity. When we pray we come into agreement with God and as a result we come into agreement with each other. We want to see the power and possibilities of a Church unified in the name of Jesus under one purpose, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel (Php. 1:27). The unity among the end-time Church will act as a witness to the love of the Father for the lost and for Israel (Jn. 17:20-23).
  1. We value God’s call to corporate prayer as a necessary element in a time of crisis in view of the current condition of our nation and retaining the conviction of a coming global crisis as described in the Word (Mt. 24:21-22). God’s reason to call the “solemn assembly” is to call the people to embrace wholeheartedness (full agreement with His heart). The whole world will be back into a corner because there is no other solution, they are stuck until they seek His favor. These three passages; (Jo. 2:15-17; Zph. 2:1-3; 2Ch. 7:14), alert everyone to corporate prayer as a vital factor for protection, together with a guide line to live by in a time of crisis. Noah, Lot and Moses are examples of God protecting believers in a time of judgment without removing them from the planet (2Pe. 2:4-9). The Lord is looking for people to build up a wall of defense around their city before the end-time Judgments and we want DFW to be one of these cities (Ez. 22:30). One man is not enough to save a city from devastation (Ez. 14:13-14: Ge. 18:16-32).
  1. We value the Sermon on the Mount (Mt. 5-7) as normative Christianity.  As this was Christ’s 1st public sermon it was laid out as the foundation of the Kingdom of God and it His call to all believers to live lifestyles in accordance to these principles.  The standards set in this sermon can not be negotiated or disputed as they are Kingdom principles.  We strive to both live and teach the values of the Sermon on the Mount, especially holding to character traits commonly referred to as the “Be-Attitudes.”
    • Poor in Spirit:  Constant recognition that without Christ we are nothing, living out this idea with regard to our success, our financial status, our giftings and our strength so that we never of ourselves more highly than we ought 
    • Mourning:  This is a deep conviction of sin not only as it pertains to us as individuals, but sin as a whole that grieves the Father’s heart.  To mourn is to identify with what the Father mourns for.
    • Meekness: Thinking of others as better than ourselves, showing this mentality by seeking opportunity to serve others over our own needs.
    • Spiritual Hunger:  To violently pursue intimacy with Christ at whatever the cost, recognizing that to gain life in Christ we will have to loose our own.
    • Mercy:  The unmerited, un-repayable, generosity towards those who deserving punishment or justice.
    • Purity of Heart:  Radical obedience to the strictest depths of the law out of an earnest desire to know Him more.
    • Peace Making:  Intentional and sacrificial love that brings others peace by putting their needs over our own. 
    • Persecution for the sake of Righteousness:  Those who truly live according to the above guidelines found in the Sermon on the Mount will incur abuse just as Christ did, for those who receive this comparable treatment Christ says  there is great reward.
