LESSON INTRODUCTION:
Prayer is the intimate communication with our father in heaven, it is the channel God has chosen for all his blessings to come into the life of His children. Satan dread nothing but prayer. His one concern is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless person, but trembles when we pray. A house of prayer is a dwelling place of God. A place where a community of believers abide in perfect communion and intimacy with the One they call their Lord. Jesus declared that God’s house is not a market place, it is for calling on the Lord, that is, the atmosphere of God’s house is to be for prayer. It was Isaiah 56:6-7 that Jesus referenced when He cleansed the temple, Matthew 21:1-13, Mark 11:15-17 and Luke 19:45-46.

TEXT REVIEW: Matthew 21:12-17.
i. God’s house should be called a house of prayer not a market place.
ii. God’s house should be a place of miracles, sign and wonder.

LESSON OUTLINE:
WHAT WAS JESUS REFERRING TO AS A HOUSE OF PRAYER ?
1. A building designed by God himself. 1 Chronicles 28.
2. A place designed by God sacrifices, offerings and prayer. Isaiah 56:7.
3. A dwelling declared by God to be where Gd would meet with His people. 2 Chronicles 7:15-16.

CONSEQUENCES OF A PRAYERLESS HOUSE OF GOD ARE:
1. Little joy.
2. No outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
3. No experience of brokenness, repentance and humility in the life of the church.
4. No power to convert souls.
5. No burden to win souls.
6. No revival
7. Little evidence of brokenhearted, willing service.

ACTIVITY:
With all the negative things happening in today’s world, is God’s house still a place of prayer ?.

CONCLUSION:
The Spirit of God is speaking the same words to us today. He is calling us to examine what we do in the house of God, whether good or bad, we should return to Him and join the army who are preparing the way for His return.

PRAYER POINTS:
1. Father, please set the church on fire and let there be a hunger for revival in every worshippers in Jesus’ Name.
2. Father, please help me pray my way through to my next levels in the mighty name of Jesus.
3. Pray for rapid growth of RCCG spiritually, materially and numerically.
4. Pray for God to uphold Daddy G.O.’s prayer life.
5. Your personal prayer request.
