As worshipers, we seek His face through intercession for our nation and the nations of this world, our local community, family, and friends. We minister to Him as we musically and verbally express our worship to Him, seeing results as we engage Heaven to impact earth. As seen in Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16-18, the Lord is restoring the spirit and type of continuous expression of worship and prayer as seen in the life of David. As king, David established one example of a house of prayer known as the “Tabernacle of David”. In 1 Chronicles 16:1,4,37, we see a description of this house of prayer: “And they brought in the ark of God and set inside the tent which David had pitched for it; moreover, David appointed certain of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the Lord, to invoke, to thank, and to praise the Lord, the God of Israel; so David left Asaph and his brethren there before the ark of the covenant of the Lord to minister continually before the ark as each day required.” Prayer and praise went up from these houses of prayer night and day without ceasing. An example in 1 Chronicles 9:33 reads, “These are the singers, heads of the fathers’ houses of the Levites, who lodged in the chambers, and were free from other duties; for they were employed in that work day and night.” David set up a pattern of continuous prayer, worship, and praise that mirrored the throne room, as seen in Revelation 4:8, “And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, ‘HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME.’”
This pattern of prayer was instrumental in establishing the seasons of righteousness and victory for the nation of Israel, marking the years of abundance and favor of the Lord. These patterns carried over into early Christianity and have been seen throughout Church history. Historically, the establishment of continuous houses of prayer has been very influential in the greatest Kingdom expansions, helping to usher in deep revival and spiritual awakening.
