The Road was planted after seeking the Lord in prayer for forty nights; prayer is its foundation. Prayer is the key to intimacy with Jesus Christ, as we journey on this road to becoming His wholehearted disciples. Praying is the privilege and responsibility of each person who gathers at The Road. We all come from different walks of life and have unique testimonies; however, we are united in our collective brokenness as we sit at the Lord’s Feet. We value the power and life-transforming nature of prayer as we pray the promises in God’s Word, allowing the Holy Spirit to lead.

We Want to Pray for You
“Everything will hinge upon the power of prayer in the church.”
— Charles Spurgeon
Pre-Service Boiler Room Prayer
Pre-Service Boiler Room Prayer is before The Road Sunday gathering in which a group of men and women that meet before 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 9:00 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!
” … praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.” – Ephesians 6:18 (NKJV)
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)
