A Second Witness

It’s been nearly three-months since coming back to the mainland. In this time, since the nine-weeks on Vancouver Island searching out an ancient well of the Spirit, the various options for a house of prayer have been sifting through my awareness, heart and mind and spirit. It takes time to discern the Lord and ourContinue reading “A Second Witness”

Some Background Story

The Lord is bringing our thinking down to the core of hospitality as the primary movement at House of Prayer. We have been recalling what the Lord does from this place of abiding, resting, inviting, and making space for God. There has been swaths of movement from the Holy Spirit all through our decade ofContinue reading “Some Background Story”

Hosting

We’ve had a number of ideas around a House of Prayer. Is this a place for gathering in groups, hosting conferences or training times, how to pray for nations maybe? Perhaps we host week-long inner-healing intensives for small numbers of folks. Maybe we fly-in pastors and their wives from the majority world for three-weeks atContinue reading “Hosting”

Movements of Prayer

It’s been a week of contemplation and prayer, inquiring of the Lord and of discerning next steps. We have campsites (and a house-sitting) that will take us to September 6th. This sounds a long ways off, but is only a few weeks. The time is flying by. Our prior week, written about HERE, has beenContinue reading “Movements of Prayer”

The Lord is Gathering Us

It’s been quite the week. How might I share?  One week ago today, Monday as I post this, we moved from one campsite to another. It turns out a bit of a miracle that we landed in this particular campsite, a circuitous route that over a few days had felt like things weren’t working out!Continue reading “The Lord is Gathering Us”

Ancient Wells of the Spirit

I heard the Lord speak this to my spirit last fall. I’d been hearing that a future House of Prayer was to be on Vancouver Island. And then perceived, ‘On an ancient well of the Spirit.’ Now, I grew up baptist. And even though I am pretty charismatic today I don’t run in prophetic orContinue reading “Ancient Wells of the Spirit”

To the Island

It is interesting that direction can also be by process of elimination. We boarded the ferry early Saturday morning. Arriving, we drove to our destination, a beautiful little campsite on the edge of a river. The remainder of our first day was spent setting up tent, establishing the location of the washroom, perusing and choosingContinue reading “To the Island”

July 12th: Discerning the Exact Timing

Once it became clear that I was to give up my apartment (it’s lease was ending June 30th) the thought of a three-month ministry time to seek out the general region for a possible house of prayer simply fell into place. I’ve been navigating with the Lord in an intuitive and spirit-led way for someContinue reading “July 12th: Discerning the Exact Timing”
