Our prayer format is based on the heavenly picture that we see in Revelation 5, which speaks of the harp and the bowl ~ worship and prayer.
“When He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song…” Revelation 5:8-9a
Within the harp and bowl prayer model, we use three basic worship and prayer formats.
-Intercession – Intercessory Worship sets are usually energetic, as the room is invited to engage in corporate worship and prayer. There is generally a specific prayer focus, and individuals in the room are welcome to pray on the microphone. There are also cycles of “rapid fire prayer” when, one by one, intercessors pray a succession of 10-15 second prayers on a specific theme, as well as times of small group prayer for any who wish to participate. Use of this model of enjoyable, thus sustainable, prayer encourages everyone to engage and creates an atmosphere of united hearts, inviting the Holy Spirit to be with us.
-Worship with the Word – A prayer format in which we agree with God’s heart as we sing the biblical truths of who God is and what His promises are. These sessions are more devotional in nature, providing an atmosphere conducive to reading the Bible and entering into personal and devotional prayer.
-Devotional Worship – A prayer format designed to provide an anointed atmosphere for worship, meditation on scripture, and for lingering in the presence of God.
