To see a 24/7 House of Prayer established, which is a vibrant community of believers who, through worship and prayer, partner with God in seeing transformation across our region, our nation and the nations. New Forest House of Prayer is a focal point for the churches in our area to come together in unity and pray for the reviving of our churches and for the spiritual awakening of our communities to the reception of the gospel of Jesus.
At NFHOP, it is our ultimate aim to pray day and night, aligning ourselves with heaven in seeing the Lord as worthy of incessant praise, just as the creatures and the elders do day and night around His throne (Rev. 4:8). We find that God is just and true; He answers the prayers of those who cry out to Him day and night (Luke 18). Our focus is first an upward calling, ministering to God. We want to see righteousness released throughout the earth and to build expectancy for Christ to come - exalting Jesus and preparing his bride for his return. As we do this, we find ourselves being transformed into the lovesick bride that we read about in Song of Solomon 5 and Revelation 21.
3 pillars on which we build
- Day and night prayer in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David
- Intimacy with our Bridegroom God
- Understanding end times and the significance of Israel
5 steps to enable us to achieve our vision
- Intimate encounter with Jesus Christ that comes from living in the Word of God out of which our prayers flow (John 15:4, John 17:24)
- The combination of music and scripture based prayer engages and moves the heart of the corporate gathering, allowing the prayer room to flow in unity (Col 3:16)
- A wholehearted pursuit of God, believing that prayer is not something you do for a moment, but that it is a way of life for every believer (1 Thess 5:17, Phil 4:6)
- Understanding the urgency of the days in which we live. Revival is needed as the stage is set for Christ's return (1 Chron 12:32, Eph 5: 15-16)
- Impacting the region by helping to develop lives fully given to God in love, service and the fasted lifestyle (Eph 3: 15-17)
