Jesus taught and said to his disciples, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations?’ But you have turned it into a den of robbers.”
Mark 11:17 AMPC
First of all, Christ himself was a house of prayer and he was teaching his disciples to become one also. He modelled this for them when He continually withdrew from their company to talk with His Heavenly Father and to draw strength from that intimate relationship He had with Him. This enabled Him on Earth to live as a human being but He never lost Heaven’s mindset.
Prayer is having that intimate communication with the Father in heaven, and a house of prayer is the earthly expression of what is in heaven. And what it is like in heaven, is that there is continual flow of Worship, Intercession, the Word of God and all of heaven is listening to the voice of the Father through the Son, Christ Jesus who is interceding at the right hand side of the Father for us.
The Father wants the Body of Christ to walk focused on Christ Jesus and to fix our eyes on the things above because a House of Prayer is not building or a prayer meeting but you are the House of Prayer, both personally and corporately with your family and the Body Christ .
The Ecclesia is a House of Prayer. As we assemble together we are the corporate expression of prayer. Matthew 18:20 says, “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am in their midst.” Hebrews 10:24-25
The Father’s desire is for you and your family to recover your position by being with him in daily communion with the Holy Spirit, so that you will know the heart of His Son, Jesus Christ. You will be corporately activated by the Holy Spirit as you spend time with Him as a Mobile House of prayer in your Home, workplace and nation.
When He says, ‘My House will be House of Prayer’, He is saying ‘Return to me and return to My Word and I will return to you.’ This house needs to be full of His Word, both personally and corporately because then it will be full of Life! Abundant Life!
