PRAYERS FOR HOUSE ON THE ROCK CHURCHES
Song: We are a chosen generation,
A royal priesthood, a holy nation,
A peculiar people
forth the praises of Him
Who has called us out of the darkness
Out of darkness
Out of darkness
into His marvelous light
into His marvelous light.
Thank God for House on the Rock (HOTR), as a church organisation and ministry. Give God praise for the faithfulness of God concerning the ministry over the years. Bless the Lord for the leadership of the ministry under Pastors Paul and Ifeanyi Adefarasin since inception until now. Thank God for their lives.
Declare that HOTR will abide in Christ as a branch of the Vine which Christ is, and shall bring forth much fruit unto eternity to the glory of God the Father. Pray that HOTR shall continually be a voice of excellence and godly virtue, the hand of power and a bridge of hope in this generation unto the coming of Christ. Decree that the nature & attributes of Christ will be visible in HOTR abundantly, such that none within the ministry shall be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 15: 1-6, 2 Peter 1:8)
Pray that Christ Jesus will remain the foundation of the HOTR Churches. Decree that no other foundation will be laid in any of the expression of the church organisation than that already laid, which is Jesus Christ. Pray that every worker, minister and pastor in HOTR will build with lasting materials which shall abide eternally and shall not be burnt by fire when tried. (1 Corinthians 3:11-15)
Pray that HOTR shall live out the purposes for which it was called and chosen by God. It shall rise & stand stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord and knowing that our labour is not in vain in the Lord. Pray that as a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; HOTR shall show forth the praises of Him who hath called us out of darkness into his marvellous light. Decree that HOTR in all the various cities shall open blind eyes, turn sinners from darkness to light, from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:58, 1 Peter 2:9, Acts 26:16-18)
Pray that the wholesome word and sound doctrine of Christ will not be compromised in all HOTR churches. Commend all the branches of the Church (including the Lagos Church) unto God and the word of His Grace and decree that the word of God being preached will build men and women up in the faith, sanctify (separate them unto Christ, and give them full inheritance among the saints. (Acts 20:38)
Pray that God will sustain HOTR with His mighty Hands. Decree that no matter the fiery darts and opposition from the pit of hell, the Church will stand strong. Pronounce judgement over every occultic manipulation, demonic conspiracy and witchcraft power that might want to hijack the church. Decree that HOTR will be clothed with the whole armour of God and shall withstand the wiles of the Devil. (Eph 6:10-13)
Decree that HOTR shall raise and nurture men and women that will be hearers and doers of God’s word, come against hypocrisy and self deception. Pray that every one that hears the sayings of Christ across the entire system, shall be wise and do them. Decree that no matter the rain that descends, the floods that comes, and the winds that shall blow, and beat upon HOTR and it’s members; it shall not fall just like a house founded upon a rock. (James 1:22-23, Matthew 7:24-25)
Pray for all the programmes, events and conferences of the Church i.e. Spirit Life Conference, Word Conference, Experience, The African Praise Experience etc that Christ alone shall be glorified through these programmes. Decree that Jesus will be lifted up at these programmes and He will draw men unto Himself. Pray that all these programmes will draw men truly to Christ being filled with great power and serving as strong witnesses of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Decree that true Grace shall greatly abound unto all through these meetings. (John 12:32, Acts 4:33)
Go ahead and bless the Lord on behalf of HOTR and appreciate God for that He has done, is doing and will yet do through the various expression of the HOTR Churches.
