A house of prayer is a permanent place where God and people can meet at any chosen time. A place where intimacy with God is facilitated. A place where God finds Himself a resting place. A resting place because of the continuous worship, meditation and intercession. This expressions of relationship are to be accompanied by creative elements like music, art and dance. Read on how we are working in the European House Of Prayer (EHOP) to establish such a place…..
Mission – Why are we doing EHOP
This house of prayer will function as a birthplace of a new movement of friends of God who are working together with Holy Spirit to prepare the way for the returning Bridegroom.
In different stages EHOP will help to hasten the day of the Lord.
In the first phase she will be involved in rearing and training people that have the calling to be a forerunner in the spirit of Elijah. By prayer, worship, fasting and offering this new generation will be equipped to awaken the church for a fresh desire for her Bridegroom.
In a following phase EHOP will aim to open her doors for many hungry (just saved) believers who are shocked by the global disasters, persecution, diseases and threats. EHOP wants to facilitate a place to pray, hear God’s word, hide and serve God in the darkest moments of earths history.
EHOP also wants to supply prophecy, knowledge of the end-times and ways of intimacy with God when false teachings are all around.
Vision – What do we believe for the future
Prayer and worship will make way for the outpouring of the latter rain. This is a global outpouring of Holy Spirit, unprecedented in human history. Heaven’s impact will increase to a level that we as church start to walk in here full destiny again. Revival, signs and wonders, but also sacrifice and martyrdom will be accompanied by great numbers of souls that are going to be saved. Resistance will try to destroy this movement, but it will bring the church more and more in the place of prayer and worship.
By this the bride-church is getting prepared for here eternal destiny to rule the earth together with Him. In the darkest hour He will hear her cry and set here free for ever. The Kingdom of Heaven breaks in, and we as children of God start to live our real lives and walk out our real callings: living in His presence, worshiping Him forever with everything we think, say and do and ruling over the earth.
Strategy – How do we work?
In order to fulfill our mission, we are running a prayer room. In this place our staff is taking others along in intercession, worship and meditation during different moment a day. All people are welcome to join in worship and prayer by participating in the ‘Harp & Bowl model’. There is an openness for participants, visitors and cooperation with all different kinds of churches and ministries.
Full time staff is in training to grow in prophetic singing. As a result of Holy Spirit inspiration new songs will rise. EHOP wants to record and release this music, believing that God wants to bring shifts in the church by means of new, prophetic songs.
Full time staff is trained and encouraged to develop life messages while spending hours in the prayer room. In first place this messages will be preached in our community. Second, whenever a possibility occurs and God guides, EHOP will send out speakers to churches, youth-events, seminars etc. to speak on their life messages.
Young people will be involved by offering them three months internships in EHOP. During this period they will be educated in end times, intimacy, intercession, holiness, leadership etc. Secondly they will be trained in prayer, worship and fasting. Last they will be challenged to put into practice what they are learning by partaking in the prayerhouse.
EHOP organises conferences for a wider range of interested people. During this conferences believers will be taken along in the journey to a lifestyle of prayer and worship. Speakers from the international prayer movement together with local leaders will teach and different worship teams will lead in worship.
EHOP wants to enable people from all different spheres of society to take part in continuous prayer and worship. For that reason there is (some) housing and a program for long term and short term staff. During their stay they are welcome to pray along, but they will also be encouraged to grow in their abilities in prayer or worship leading.
Out of a lifestyle of prayer and worship EHOP is involved in outreaches as well. Different forms and styles are practised or planned: street evangelism, alpha courses, special services and out reach trips to cities in Europe or Israel.
Out of a life of prayer and worship EHOP will also be involved in justice projects. This involvement can range from supporting missions in the third world, campaigns against abortion or help for drug-addicts.
EHOP is a dynamic family of intercessors and worshipers located in the Netherlands, close to the German border. We are looking forward to run 24/7 in the near future.
We love to welcome others with the same desire! Located on a big christian conference centre in the Netherlands, we have the facilities to serve intercessors with a place to unite and pray. We long to host European prayer gatherings and end times training schools to see change come to this continent. Join hands and heart with us!
We believe the church will be awakened through worship and prayer by spiritual forerunners. Awoken and anointed the church will cooperate with Jesus in the end time harvest in Europe. Europe is not a lost case, it will see revival!
