Here’s a short story:

Graciously biting into a large burger in a serene restaurant while I await my acquaintance. Suddenly, I heard a voice as loud as I could hear my name. The voice and its message “what if you fall here and die”. Turning to check on whose voice it was, I realized that it was a close call from the other realm. Not up to a minute after the voice, I started gasping for air and it felt like life was escaping my being. Having learned from a praying mother, I began to call on the name of the Lord with the little strength I could garner.

And then I remembered his words in Psalm 91:16 “With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation”. There! That was how Jesus saved me from that attack. I used to attend an orthodox bible believing church. But after this experience, I realized that I needed a firebrand praying church just as I need food to nourish my physical body.

How was I able to locate a praying church? As stated in Acts 4:23-35 these are what I looked out for while searching for a praying church in Houston.

1. In A Praying Church There Is A Recognition Of The Supreme Importance Of Prayer And Therefore, There Is A Spontaneous Desire.

This recognition is a result of the discerning ability of a praying church. In Acts 4:24, when the Christians heard the ordeal of their brethren, they immediately discerned that such a problem only prayer could solve. Just as with my case, this ability to discern prompted further the desire to pray and wait on the Lord. sadly, only a few have a desire for prayer or see the importance of prayer. When you are cast down, can the church you attend see the need to pray for and with you?

2. In A Praying Church in Houston, The Eyes of Faith And Expectancy Are Towards The Lord (verse 24)

In this same verse 24, the praying church chose to seek the face of God. It takes a person with a discerning spirit to know what to do in the face of problems. 1 Chronicles 12:32 “from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do…”. Whenever we are faced with problems, it is God that matters, not the meetings, the preacher, man or money. The gaze of a praying church is always upon God who is, the sovereign God, self-revealing God, and then seeing God.

3. In A Praying Church, There is An Overwhelming Desire To Obey The Lord’s Commission To Evangelise To The World.

For a man to pray, it means he saw the need to pray. That is to say that, it takes a praying poeple to bear the burden of the Lord and see the need to evangelise to win more souls. From verses 24-30 the people saw the challenge as an opportunity to pray and spread the gospel of Christ further. In a praying church, this is the overwhelming desire of members. If this does not mark the characteristics of your church, then there is a need for you to contribute your quota in making your church a praying church.

4. In A Praying Church in Houston There Is Faith To Demand Miracles.

The proof of effective prayer is the results James 5:16 “…the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” not only did these Christians pray for the boldness to speak God’s words, they prayed in verse 30 that God should stretch out his hand to heal and perform miracles. Because where prayer is exercised God breaks in with His supernatural acts of miracles, signs and wonders. Imagine if I had relented on hearing the voice. Unfortunately, most people today either do not believe in miracles or they think that the days of miracles are over. However, a praying church invokes the supernatural power of God to wrought miracles in the spirit realm that saves, heals and restores men.

5. In A Praying Church, The Holy Spirit Manifests His Presence And Power (verse 31).

No doubt prayer is the secret of all the manifestations of the Holy Spirit you see in a praying church. In verse 31 the Bible says “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and they spoke the word of God with boldness.” You can pick out a praying church from the aura of the presence of God they exude in the way they speak.

6. In A Praying Church There Is Mighty Power In The Preaching Of The Gospel.

Conviction and conversions follow the preaching that is backed by a praying people. Every physical manifestation of the power of God you see in a praying church was/is birthed on a solid foundation of prayer. See what happened in verses 31 and 33 respectively. In every case where great things have been accomplished through the preaching of the gospel, it has always been in the answer to the prayers of God’s people.

7. In A Praying Church There Is A Great Grace In The Lives of God’s People.

Hebrews 4:16 “let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” and in verse 33 of Acts 4 because they prayed ‘boldly’ “much grace was upon them all” and there was

1. The grace of unity (32)

2. The grace of renunciation (32)

3. The grace of fellowship and (32)

4. The grace of liberty (34-35)

What you should know about a prayer service

Praying Prayer Service Houston Church

17 Things To Consider In Leading A Prayer Service

Prayer is a fundamental characteristic of believers who are conscious of their spiritual growth and have a standing relationship with God. Prayer is one of the ways you grow in faith and stay in check. Therefore, it is important to have a regular prayer service infused into a church’s line-up of activities.

However, to do this, there are basic patterns you must observe in leading a prayer service. Which are:

Gathering / Introduction – Songs, greetings and opening prayer

The Word of God – Scripture reading, response, silence

Shared Prayer – Petitions, traditional prayers, litanies, composed prayers

Conclusion – Closing prayer, blessing, songs.

As A Pastor, You Will Be Called Upon To Lead Prayer Services From Time To Time. Here Are Some Things To Consider When Leading Such Services.

The Prayer

Imagine preparing to attend a wedding reception where the couples made no room for mouth-watering refreshments? You are likely to return home feeling sad.

As a prayer service leader, preparing before the time for your prayer service paves way for things to be done properly and allows the smooth flow of the Holy Ghost.

The Role of the Holy Spirit:

In a prayer service, the presence of the Holy Spirit serves as a guide to all prayer. Therefore, as a prayer leader, you must offer yourself as a vehicle of the spirit by praying that the Holy Spirit guide, inspire and use you.


Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light to my path” The word of God should be the standard of every prayer service. Because listening to the word of God is one of the ways God speaks to people.


Music is to the church as food is to the body. In Psalm 100:2 “serve the Lord with gladness: Come before His presence with singing” That is to say that, in every prayer service, worship of song should not be missing as it is an essential ingredient.

Environment / Location

This is the location where the prayer meeting will likely take place. A good environment gives room for the Holy Ghost to thrive. In setting up a location, a good serene atmosphere will do, preferably the church premises as this will lessen distractions.
Also, the atmosphere determines how well your members can connect with everything you say in a prayer service. Consider introducing slow worship music in the background, display images that describe your speech at the time on the projection screen.

The Time Frame

The category of people you want in your prayer service has a way of influencing the time frame for your meeting.

Is the prayer service for children, teenagers, youths or adults? You decide the suitable time to get them come around and if it’s a recurring meeting, fix it at the right time of the day.

For example, you don’t choose to fix the time for a prayer service during the day for a group of workers. Or a group of college students in the morning time.

Also, make sure that the time does not exceed an hour or two.

Assembly Participation:

In addition, ensure you carry everyone along in a prayer service. This is a pointer that will tell if you are allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you or you are merely doing what pleases your mind.

Nonverbal Elements:

During a prayer service, consciously at intervals ask members to kneel, raise their hands in worship, move around. And as led by the Spirit, lay hands on them, bless and anoint them.

Verbal Elements:

Follow and borrow from the prayer of the Church: introductory rites, psalm responses, intercessions, and blessings. These prayers are rich and evocative and therefore, powerful.

Liturgical Feasts and Seasons:

It is important that during a prayer service, you pay close attention to the time and season of the liturgical year for example festive periods like Christmas, Easter, New year, this will guide you in selecting themes and prayers.

Know Your Assembly:

The age level of your members should determine how you lead a prayer service. Consider this and it will help you know the areas to address to enable you to build their faith.

Prepare / The Focus

No one ever wakes up to start a thing without having a reason. For example, I may decide to give free medical to the sick within my community because at first, I saw the need to reduce the mortality rate in my community. This is reason enough to act upon.

Be sure of your focus, theme and goal before organising a prayer service. Meditate and envision the prayer, feel the flow, get a sense of space, time, sound, silence and so on. Assign roles ahead of time.

Praying Prayer Service Houston Church
So, when setting up a prayer service for your church or small group, endeavor to know your focus. What are you praying about? Why are you praying about it? Who are you praying for? These questions will enable you to draft out prayer requests suitable for the meeting.

Include Silence:

When there is silence, you open yourself up to receive from God. At a point in a prayer service, lead the people to observe a moment or two of silence. This will enable them to ascend to the point the Holy Spirit wants them to in prayer.

Give instructions beforehand:

There’s nothing worse than interrupting a prayer to give directions such as “the left side takes this part, and the right side takes that part!”

Be creative:

As mentioned earlier, include the use of a projection screen and enable the appropriate visuals.

Encourage spontaneous prayer:

Not everyone is comfortable with spontaneous prayer, but it is a form of prayer that needs to be taught and fostered.


Throughout the prayer service, speak clearly and slowly. Proclamation is more than merely reading the text and less than a dramatic performance. As you speak, try not to bury your head in the text; look at the assembly as much as possible. Speaking in this way will help to involve the participants.

Move with reverence:

Moving with reverence means moving not too quickly or slowly, and not stiffly, but with ease and regard for what you are doing.

Are you preparing for a prayer meeting soon? These basics will enable you effectively and wholeheartedly organize a prayer service that others can benefit from.

What To Do When You Pray

Now that you know the basics of a prayer service and you have planned and prepared. This is what to do when you pray  to engage and carry others along during your prayer service.

Have an opening prayer:

An opening prayer helps in ushering the people into the presence of God.

OFM Houston church members holding hands
Have a praise and worship session:

This prepares the mind to be ready to receive from God in the place of prayer and allows for a smooth transition when communicating with God.

Have a word session:

During the word session give instructions about prayer, read two or more scriptures from the bible that speaks about your central theme for the meeting. If possible, have an interactive session.

Have a prayer method:

This is the main point of the meeting anyways. After preparing the minds of the people to receive from God, then you dive into the prayer service properly. When praying, use varieties – people should pray in groups or in twos, they should walk around the place, sit or stand to pray depending on which they are most comfortable with.

Also, during prayers, it should be one topic at a time, each prayer point should be broken into sessions and categorized. For example, a prayer request for the nation should be distinct from individual prayer requests.

Finally, when ending the prayer service give the people a take-home message. You can decide to read from the bible or use a moral lesson that matches up with the theme of the prayer service.

Give thanks, share pleasantries by interacting with one another.

Have a closing prayer:

Talk to someone if they are willing to close your time together. you can choose to close the prayer service yourself or use a passage from the bible to pray a general closing prayer.

For your closing prayer, here are some suggestions:

  • Thank God for always hearing and caring

  • Thank God for the time to focus on talking with Him

  • Thank God for knowing all our heart desires better than we do.

  • Ask God to care for each person who came

  • Pray for any requests that were missed durying the prayer time

  • Ask God to be with anyone who was unable to make it to the prayer service

  • Thank God for knowing what is best for everyone and ask that His will be done.

prophetic prayers and declarations for the month

Life is in turns, the turn of one man does not stop the turn of another man. Therefore, It is your turn that determines your time, as you walk into the month of June, you will walk into your turn. If you believe it say ‘My Time Has Come’.

In Esther 2:1-17, other women who went before Esther were rejected, they being rejected did not deter the fate of Esther – rather, where others suffered rejection Esther saw acceptance. As you enter this new month of June, the month will favor you, it will wipe away your tears.

‘Set Time’ is the best thing that can happen to anybody, at your set time, heaven and earth corporates to favor you in such a way that it becomes impossible for the devil to stop you. God makes all things beautify in its time Ecclesiastes 3:11.

My Time Has Come
Get ready this month of June, you are walking into a breakthrough because your time has come. It does not matter what you do or how grievous the situation is, know that, no matter the darkness of the night it cannot stop the rising of the sun.

Just as Esther’s name was changed from Hadassah to Esther which means a star, in the same vein you are moving from failure to success, your star will shine this new month, you are moving from the place of preparation to an encounter with a king.

prayer points for divine turnaround

What Is Divine Turnaround?

Divine turnaround is simply God stepping into a situation to change it’s course and trajectory to a condition that is more favourable. This change will be so enormous and tremendous that the human mind and science cannot be able to comprehend.
Divine Turnaround

Practical Examples Of Divine Turnaround In The Bible

The Virgin Mary

A young virgin just as every other virgin in those days yet, God choose her among others. To conceive and nurture His only begotten son as the bible specified in Luke 1:28 …rejoice highly favoured one, the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women. It takes extra grace – unmerited favour for one person to be selected and exalted among a hundred men. so imagine what it was like for Mary. It was simply a divine turnaround! Though prophesied by prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 7:14), no body even Mary knew who will divinely conceive and bear the messiah until there was a divine visitation. As you read through, you will get a divine visitation in Jesus name!

Joseph The Dreamer

Dejected, hated and rejected among his brethren. Joseph was sold out by his brothers in a bid to terminate his destiny. Genesis 37:1-36 ignorant that it was part of God’s plan in order to glorify His name and preserve a generation through Joseph Genesis 45:5.

From a slave in potiphar’s house to the king’s prisoner and to a governor over all the land of Egypt Genesis 41:37-45. Is your situation like that of Joseph? Today, there shall be a tremendous divine turnaround in your life in Jesus name!

Ruth The Widow
Should we forget to talk about the diligent widow Ruth? Then our effort to stir up your faith will be futile. Ruth, after being widowed decided to stay with her mother in-law Naomi and the Bible records her statement thus where you go, I will go: where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die-there will I be buried. Ruth 1:16-17

With no intent of getting another husband, the Lord visited her. He compensated her for her abiding loyalty and devotion. And finding favour in the eyes of Boaz, he married her see Ruth 4:1-18.

The Matriarch Hannah
Hannah was a barren woman and wife of Elkanah. Filled with pain and sorrow over her predicament, her co-wife Peninnah made situation even worst for her – 1 Samuel 1:6.

Devastated, she was moved to make prayers and supplications to God. And moved by her tears, He visited her and she experienced a divine turnaround from a barren woman to a mother of six children. One which she gave to God – Samuel (1 Samuel 1:8-28, 1 Samuel 2:21).

So, what is that problem that is stealing your sleep?

Do you know that if you carefully search the scriptures, you will find out that there are much more stories of people who experienced divine turnaround in different ways as their case may be. However, to conclude this, see also the case of the blind man, one who was blind from birth in John 9:1-9 and if the passing by of Jesus can set a man free, how much more when He came intentionally? But it starts by you being intentional for a change which is why you should pray this Divine Turnaround Friday Solution Service with Pastor Rich Aghahowa for the supernatural and a mighty turnaround.
