A House of Prayer


“It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer.” – Matthew 21:13 I am so grateful to work at a ministry where prayer is integrated into our everyday work lives. Who would imagine allowing their employees to pray during work hours? Yet hasn’t it been said that prayer is the greater work?
