Jesus said in Luke 19:46, ".. my house is the house of prayer.."      

What is it that defines a church as a "house of prayer"?   Contrary to what most Christians have been led to believe, there is a big difference between being a group of believers who prays and being a "house of prayer".

 

A CHURCH THAT PRAYS

  • Prays about what it does.

  • Fits prayer in.

  • Prays when there are problems.

  • Announces a special time of prayer-- some of the church shows up.

  • Asks God to bless what it is doing.

  • Is frustrated by financial shortfalls-- backs down from challenges.

  • Is tired, weary, stressed out.

  • Does things within its means.

  • Seeks to serve its own members.

  • Is involved in the work of men.

A HOUSE OF PRAYER​

  • Does things by prayer.

  • Gives prayer priority.

  • Prays when there are opportunities.

  • Announces a special time of prayer-- most of the church shows up.

  • Asks God to enable it to do what He is doing.

  • Is challenged by financial shortfalls-- calls for fasting, prayer, and faith.

  • Mounts up with wings like eagles, runs and doesn't grow weary, walks and does not faint.

  • Does things beyonds its means.

  • Seeks to serve the world around it.

  • Is involved in the work of God.
