Jesus taught and said to his disciples, “Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations?” (Mark 11:17 AMPC).
Christ himself was a house of prayer and he was teaching his disciples to become one too. He modelled this daily for them, when He continually withdrew to talk with His Father and received strength from that intimate relationship with Him. In this way, He shows us that although He lived on Earth as a Human being, He never lost His Heavenly mindset, and He wants us to be like Him.
In the measure we pray to Him, the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us, and Christ reveals the Father, and we become like him. Prayer is intimate communion with the Father in heaven and being a House of Prayer is the earthly expression of what is in heaven.
Now what is in heaven before the Throne of Grace, is constant Worship, Intercession, and every being present is listening to the voice of the Father, revealed in the Word who is the Son, Christ Jesus. He continually intercedes for us at the right hand of the Father, and as mobile houses of prayer we can continually hear Him and so align with his Intercession from Heaven so that we release it on earth and establish His perfect good will.
A House of Prayer is not a building but wherever you are, you carry His Presence and become a mobile House of Prayer. Corporately, the Ecclesia is also a House of Prayer, that is, as we assemble together as a family or with the Body of Christ, 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.”
It’s time for you and your family to recover your spiritual position by being with him in daily comunion with the Holy Spirit, to know the heart of his Son Christ Jesus personally and corporately, and to be an active Mobile House of prayer in your Home, workplace, street and nation.
To be effective mobile houses of prayer we need to be full of his Word because when Jesus said “My House will be House of Prayer” He is saying ‘Return to me, return to my Word and I will return to you’.
In the spiritual realm, when you daily read the Logos Word of God with the Bible, (John 1:1) you are eating Christ and becoming one with Him in intimate relationship, because He is the living word (Mathew 4:4). When you delight daily in Him you engage with Him through the Rhema Word, which is the revelation or prophetic word that comes directly from him through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:13).
This Rhema Word comes directly from Him like Kisses from His mouth (Songs of Solomon 1:2 ) and you return to the First love for Him, as Luke 10:27 says, Love the Lord your God with all with your heart, soul and strength and love your neighbour as yourself. Then this House of Prayer will be a place of habitation for Him, full of His Presence with love, praise, worship, intercession, joy, faith and hope.
The Spirit is saying to you and your family; decide to become an active mobile House of Prayer, then He will return the heart of the fathers to their children and children to their fathers (Malachai 4:6) and the Son and the Father will make their home with you (John 14:23).
Yield your heart and family to Him daily and become a Gate of Glory for the King to enter and live permanently with you and be a Mobile House of Prayer in your Home and workplace to worship, honour, love and thank him for his faithfulness and unconditional love.
