An event every week that begins at 10:16am on Sunday, repeating until January 6, 2019
Boiler Room Prayer is before The Road Sunday gathering in which a group of men and women that meet during The Road worship gathering on Sunday to pray for the people who are attending the service. This group is open to all and meets in the War Room (located near the kitchen) at 10:16 AM. They pray for people’s hearts to engage in worship of Jesus and to receive what He has for them through the preaching of the Bible. They desire and pray for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit and for the Lord’s will to be done in each person present in the service.
Charles Spurgeon, a minister in England in the mid-1800s, began Boiler Room Prayer. In his time, steam was the power source of the day. Boiler rooms were the power houses, the driving forces of everything from vast machines in factories to household heating systems. Likewise, Spurgeon saw the prayers of his people as the spiritual power behind his preaching and ministry. He said, “Everything will hinge upon the power of prayer in the church.”
The Holy Spirit leads the Boiler Room prayer time, as evidenced by so many instances when two people begin to pray similar prayers or the same Bible verse at the same time. It is awesome to partner in prayer and to experience the move of the Hand of God!
