Over 20 Houses of Prayer
Over 20 Houses of Prayer
On 18th February 2017, PenHOP and their friends and family gathered in the Prayer Room at 52 Jalan Green Hall, to witness yet another year of God’s faithfulness and goodness to the House.
Weekends at PenHOP was held from 14 to 15 October with the intention of introducing the heart of the prayer movement over one weekend.
In August, I participated in a children intercessors’ conference, held in Taiwan. Yes, you read that right: children intercessors. They do exist, gathering in numbers greater than most adult prayer meetings. The meeting was organized by local churches and houses of prayer in Taiwan, featuring a renowned minister involved in children intercessory ministry.
From 26 to 29 July this year, sons and daughters from over 30 nations met in Ilsan Kwanglim Church, Seoul, for the first-ever United Prayer Rising (UPRising) Conference. In a time when this generation is struggling to find their purpose, the team from UPRising saw a need to gather young people from the nations to be inspired and empowered by the wisdom and love of fathers in the faith and the field.
The Church of St. George the Martyr - now commonly known as St. George’s Church – is the oldest Anglican Church in Southeast Asia. Since the groundbreaking on 1816, the church has now stood for 200 years in Georgetown as one of the reminders of Penang’s magnificent spiritual heritage.
From 3 July to 9 July this year, I had the honor in representing PenHOP to help pioneer an internship with Vigan House of Prayer (VigHOP), in Vigan City, the Philippines with two other leaders from Burning Hearts, Singapore.
Converge was held for the second time on 25 to 27 April 2016, at The Lost Paradise Resort, Batu Feringghi in Penang, and this time around, we had the participation of more than 60 leaders representing over 20 different houses of prayer and prayer ministries.
This year, we had 25 individuals from 5 different nations who made their choice to consecrate 30 days in Penang with the purpose of intentionally seeking the face of God. The four weeks of the internship were crafted to provide Biblical understanding of the prayer movement, along with extended times of encounter in the Prayer Room through prayer and worship.
PenHOP has, for many years, been interceding for East Malaysia. In the beginning of 2015, we met as a house of prayer to hear the Lord together on His heart for East Malaysia, and – appropriate to our call to come alongside the local church for the prayer movement – to ask Him of how to partner with Him in what He desires to do there.
People often ask me this question of where PenHOP is at currently. It's actually very easy to answer this question by just stating the obvious. Besides, everything is pretty much spelled out in our website.
