Welcome to the Hour of Prayer

Thank you to those precious ones who called in today at the call of the Holy Spirit. Will you awaken from your slumber, if that’s your condition? Ask Jesus to show you your true condition in His eyes. Now that’s a bold prayer that Jesus will answer. God bless you!

Come, Let Us Pray!

Thank you to those precious ones who called into today’s live prayer meeting. If you missed it, you can call in next Friday during our regular broadcast time on WAVA 780, a local AM radio station in the Washington DC area. May Jesus rule and reign in your heart this weekend, God bless you all!

What It Means to Pray Through – B.H. Clendennen (1975)

Today’s encore sermon from a dear Pastor named B.H. or Burt Clendennen. Pastor Clendennen clearly articulates both from the scriptures and his own personal life on what it means to pray through. God puts us in impossible places where we can’t deliver ourselves to where we must learn to stand upon the promises in the scriptures or things that the Holy Spirit has whispered into our hearts. Listen and be blessed and stand upon the promises of God, regardless of…

Learning to Stand Upon the Promises of God

Do you live by praying in faith? Usually, a desperate need will drive a Christian to really pray. Perhaps sickness, marital problems, or the lost condition of your children burdens your soul. It’s not unusual for a Christian to encounter these kinds of “Red Sea” circumstances. At these times, you must decide, “Will I accuse God? Or will I stand by faith on the promises?” There’s a process that every Christian must walk through to learn to stand upon the…

Prayer Is the Breath of the Soul (2010)

Prayer is the breath of the soul. God’s will is that we rejoice in Jesus and pray without ceasing. When sin blocks us from prayer, it’s like we stop breathing. The parable of the sower offers three explanations for why this can happen. But ultimately, to keep the faith until the end, we need to pray, obey God, and read Scripture. When we walk without sin and pray constantly, great freedom abounds in our hearts. We’re now free to love…

A Whole New Level of Devotion

Today, Pastor Ray drew a line in the sand. The National Prayer Chapel will no longer maintain itself in survival mode while waiting on Jesus. Instead, it is time to depend on Jesus. The National Prayer Chapel has jettisoned the formal church structure. We are calling for a whole new level of devotion to Jesus Christ. This Sunday, we will baseline the church and return to the model in Scripture: the upper room. For the rest of our lives on…

The First Step of Prayer

Jesus taught us to pray after the model of “Our Father.” But the first step of prayer is to not harden our heart. For example, pain, fear, and anger can lead us to say, “It’s hopeless! I’m just going to cave to my circumstances and depression.” But why? We serve a God who answers prayer! As we pray, we see that God is not subject to earthly things. If our way is blocked, God’s way is not blocked. Then, we…

Go into the Bedroom of God

Jesus warns us that if we harden our hearts, we will not enter his rest. This rest is the bedroom of God. It is resting in Jesus, believing God’s rhema word to us, and having our prayers answered. But what does this look like practically? The first step is to repent of any hardness, judgments, or accusations against Jesus or others. All these are forms of unbelief, which is rebellion. Then, be sure that you’re committed to receive only from…

When You Don’t Want to Pray

What do you do when you don’t want to pray (but you know you should)? Charles Finney lays out how we are to come into the state of mind to offer the prayer of faith. First, we search the Scriptures and find evidence that God will answer. Simultaneously, we cherish the good desires from the Holy Spirit. Entire consecration to God, living a holy life, and walking every day with God are equally indispensable. Provided we meet these conditions, God…

Will You Pray?

Will you pray? The first baby step of following Jesus is really the only step in the entire Christian life. It is simply doing what Jesus tells you to do. Once you make this commitment, you’re in a place to offer the prayer of faith. God has pledged himself to always answer the prayer of faith provided we meet the conditions. From our end, we must have evidence in order to pray in faith. Pastor Ray lays out the first…

Three Loaves of Bread (2006)

Is the gift of the Holy Ghost an optional snack for you? Through the parable of the man begging his friend for three loaves at midnight, Jesus directs us to pray for the gift of the Holy Ghost with bold, persistent, urgency that will not be turned away. This begging process humbles our hearts and makes us aware that we are starving orphans without the Holy Ghost. For God to answer, obedience to the Holy Spirit in even the smallest…
