PRAYER ROOM

Prayer is central to the life of Christ-follower. It helps us to cultivate an intimate relationship with God, our heavenly Father.

We set up the Prayer Room to help members and friends develop the habit of of regularly seeking God through prayer.

Prayer Room opens every first Wednesday of the month (except December 2016), at Connect Halls from 12pm to 5:30pm and at The Axis from 5:30pm to 10:30pm.

Upcoming dates of Prayer Room in 2016: 5 October; 2 November.

FAQ

1. What can I expect in the Prayer Room?

We play worship DVDs and simple live worship music to provide a conducive environment for you to seek God. There will also be times of intercession for the church and the nations.

A general programme:
12pm – 10:30pm: Worship CD/ DVD or live worship for personal prayer
8pm – 8:30pm: Spirit-led Intercession

You are welcome to come, go or stay as long as you like. Feel free to read your Bible, study a favourite commentary, write in your journal, or pray privately. You may dance, sit, stand, or pace up and down the aisles. Whatever you do, we ask that you do it in a manner that honours and serves the other people in the room. Do not be distracting.

2. What happens during times of intercession?

As we want to develop intercessors in God’s church, there will be times when we will intercede over the microphone. Our intercessors pray the burdens of God for the church, as God leads them to. If you believe that God has given you a vision and a word that requires intercession, feel free to approach the intercessor leader and share your word with him/her. He/she will then decide if it is appropriate for you to share. If it is appropriate, do share God’s word for the church and pray a simple prayer. Please limit your sharing and prayer to three minutes.

3. How do I request for personal prayer from intercessors?

You may walk to the front of the stage where the intercessors are, and you will be asked to fill up a simple form. You will be encouraged to pray to God before the intercessor prays for you. The intercessors will be there from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

 

Note to all:

  • Please keep the house rules of The Axis. Besides plain water, no food is allowed in the Prayer Room. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • We aim to make improvements, such as extending the opening hours and bettering the prayer services.
  • If you would like to grow your passion in intercession, please approach your leaders (mentor, Life Group Leader or Zone Leader) and they will guide you accordingly.

The heart of The Prayer Room is perhaps best captured by David’s heart cry in Psalm 27:4: “One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.

May we all grow to have such a hunger and thirst for God in our lives.
