About the Prayer Room

Central to the programs and activities of Sanctuary House of Prayer is our prayer room, which is open to the public. The prayer room has been designed to reflect the tabernacle of David (1 Chr. 9:3322–24); it is a place where we devote ourselves to worshiping the Lord and interceding for our world.

All are welcome to come and go freely and to stay in the prayer room as long as they like. While in the prayer room, feel free to join in with the corporate worship and prayer, read your Bible, study a favorite commentary, write in your journal, or engage in private prayer. You may sit, stand, or pace up and down the aisles. Whatever you do, we ask that you do it in a manner that honors and serves the other people in the room.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask one of our friendly staff members or volunteers.

Worship and Prayer

Our prayer format is based on the heavenly picture that we see in Revelation 5, which speaks of the harp and the bowl—worship and prayer. Within the harp and bowl prayer model, we use two basic worship and prayer formats; Intercession and Worship with the Word sets.

Intercession sets are typically more energetic, as the room is invited to engage in corporate prayer. A specific prayer focus will be displayed on the projection screen, and individuals in the room are welcome to pray on the microphone for a corporate burden, which may involve the Winnipeg region or believers worldwide. During “rapid fire prayer” intercessors are invited to the microphone to pray a succession of 15-second prayers on a specific theme. Occasionally we will have times of small group prayer for any who wish to participate.

Worship with the Word is a prayer format in which we agree with God’s heart as we sing the biblical truths of who God is and what His promises are. These sets are more devotional in nature, providing an atmosphere conducive to reading the Bible and entering into contemplative or devotional prayer.

We have daily weekday Intercession sets at 6:30am and noon (Mon-Wed). For a full list of meetings and locations, please visit our Schedule & Location page.
