What's New in the New Year
With the advent of the New Year, we finally have an official name for the House of Prayer ministry we moved here from Missouri to help pioneer. It is a name that reflects both Jerusalem on earth and the Jerusalem above in heaven. It is also the name of the small mountain that the D.L. Moody Campus in Northfield, MA was built on in the 1880's to help train the student volunteer missions movement. Finally it is reflective of the prophetic naming of our 6th child who just turned 3 years old the other day. The name God gave us for her back in 2011 was Destiny Zion.
Along with the new name, we have just created a new Facebook organization page for the Mt. Zion House of Prayer. This webpage will publicize relevant information pertaining to this ministry and the prayer movement in general. If you have not already done so, please take a few seconds to "like" our page which will help put us on the cyberspace map and give us access to ultimately touching more people. We have also reset the hours of operation to 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Mon~Wed~Fri. All of these sessions are open to the public. It is our desire (especially for those of you who live locally and are connected to local churches in the Pioneer Valley), that you would help spread the word that we are consistently meeting. We would like for the House of Prayer to become a valuable resource to Christians and churches located in the Pioneer Valley and beyond. But we need a lot of help in accomplishing this goal.
The Mt. Zion House of Prayer was established in September of 2013. It is a manifestation of God's desire for the honor of His Name to be restored to the earth. This will be done as pure incense and offerings are continually offered up to God from every nation and region of the earth. (Mal. 1:11) We consider ourselves to be part of the global prayer movement which is rising in the earth.
We are a non-denominational Christian ministry of worship, prayer and outreach. This house of prayer has been modeled in part, after the harp and bowl style of: prayer accompanied with unceasing worship on musical instruments and has been inspired by the Tabernacle of David described in the Bible in 1 Chron. 9:33, 22-24; Amos 9:11-12 where hundreds of full time singers and musicians ministered to the God of Israel around the clock. We are currently meeting in the rear of the Mapleridge Church and Community Center in the children's equipping area. The Mt. Zion House of Prayer in not a ministry of any particular church or denomination but has been given gracious permission by the leadership of Mapleridge Church to hold its meetings in their building as a ministry to the regional body of Christ in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts.
