It will soon be one year since Marion and I started holding weekly gatherings for prayer and worship in our home.
We began doing this in response to God’s call to be part of birthing His house of prayer in our city. Throughout the year one of the prayers we have prayed many times is for God to awaken the intercessors across the city.
In response to our prayers and the prayers of many others, houses of prayer are springing up across the earth as the Spirit of God prepares the Bride for her Bridegroom King. An especially exciting development from our perspective (because it is so close at hand, just east of Vanier) is the launch of Burning Hearts House of Prayer at East Gate Alliance Church on Codd’s Road.
Marion and I will be away for the next couple of weeks. Following the Christmas holidays, we plan to join forces with Nahia Haddad and the team that God is raising up at Burning Hearts House of Prayer. Look for us there on Thursday evenings, and maybe at other times as well.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised (Psalm 113:3)
If you live in the Ottawa area, come join Rob and Fran Parker of National House of Prayer as they lead a prayer walk on Parliament Hill from 7:00 – 8:30 on Monday November 10. The prayer walk will start at the Centennial Flame at 7:00 pm.
This Thursday evening (October 30), instead of praying in our living room, Marion and I will be joining with other Ottawa intercessors to pray on-site for the Ottawa Civic Prayer Breakfast which takes place the next morning.
If you were thinking of coming to pray with us this Thursday, I hope you will be able to join us instead at Ottawa Conference and Event Centre (200 Coventry Road). Please let us know if you plan to be there so that we can inform Sarah Jackson who is planning the prayer evening.
We’ll be back to praying in our living room on Thursday November 6 unless the Lord has a different assignment for us. Come pray with us !
On Thursday, October 23, instead of spending the evening in our own living room worshipping and praying for awakening in Vanier and Ottawa, Marion and I will be joining with some friends from our church (All Nations Ottawa) for an evening of prophetic ministry.
We will resume weekly worship and prayer in our living room on Thursday October 30. Come pray with us!
Love in Christ
Peter and Marion
For a few months now, we haven’t been publicizing our weekly prayer meetings. That’s because the Lord made it clear to us a while back that His priority for us was not to focus on attracting people to come to our Thursday evening gatherings, but simply to focus on praying.
This past week, however, someone showed up at our door and said she wasn’t sure if we were meeting because she couldn’t find anything about our meeting on the Web. We were really happy that Dayna found us that evening, and she brought a wonderful freshness and vitality to our time of prayer. Although we don’t want to focus on promoting a meeting, we do want to communicate with our friends. So this is just a note to say that you will find us worshipping and praying at 283 Ste Cecile in Vanier every Thursday evening at 7 pm. Anyone who loves Jesus and wants to come and pray with us is welcome. If that changes, we’ll try to notify you.
Much love in Christ
Peter and Marion
On Thursday, July 24, instead of our evening spent worshipping and praying for awakening in Vanier and Ottawa, Marion and I will be joining other Christians from across the city at an evening of prayer for Muslim neighbours.
