30 years ago, Jim and I attended a weekend conference in Seattle featuring the prophetic ministry of James Goll, a prophet from Kansas City. He said to us, that in our future there would be a 24/7 house of prayer in Spokane, Washington. At that time, we didn’t even know what a house of prayer was! In fact, there was no house of prayer in Kansas City and the idea was little known and little understood, so these words sat idle for years.
When Shawn Bolz prophesied to us around 2001, the call to build a house of prayer became very specific.We were to be the directors of the house of prayer with a kinship to the one in Kansas city. We pondered these words and spent time seeking God, praying, fasting, and hiding away in a cabin in Western Montana. By that time the house of prayer in Kansas city was up and running, and we had a model for understanding. We visited the House of Prayer in Kansas city, at the time it was an oversized trailer with zealous young people worshiping God and hungry for more of him. Our hearts burned within us. Inspired by the heavy tangible manifest presence, we found it easy to embrace the prophetic assignment. The Shawn Bolz prophecy had put us one season away from the beginning of its fulfillment, which began with our house of prayer at the healing rooms conference center. We are now many years beyond that prophecy, and My Father’s House of Prayer is a continuation and the redefinition of that original vision. We are so excited to have a place for amazing oneness with God in worship and prayer, a place to pray forth into existence the glory of God, and to see it manifest in the earth.
