In June, 2010, my Dad and I began holding worship and prayer at the skating rink on Tuesdays. Soon after, my brothers and Mom got involved with the worship team and leading prayer, and within a few months, the Lord had brought a few others. We didn’t have the language at the time to call it a house of prayer, but we knew that Jesus liked what was happening and wanted us to keep going.

After I went to IHOP-KC in 2011 and got more language to explain what was happening, we decided to name the ministry AHOP (A House of Prayer) Madison County.

Over the years we’ve had several local prayer events: on the square, 12-24 hour burns, internships, worship schools, etc. But the primary mandate has always been to keep a sanctuary of prayer and worship where Jesus can encounter His people, and lead us in intercession for our region, Israel and the church. At times, we’ve had several people involved, but usually it’s only a faithful few who continue to gather for corporate worship.

Thank You Jesus for 10 years. You are worthy of continuous Praise. Please continue to breath Life on AHOP Madison County for many more years.

In June, 2020, we will celebrate 10 years of God's faithfulness with a Burn: an extended time of corporate worship and prayer.

Contact Us if you'd like to be involved. 

“To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom, priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” – Revelation 1:5b-6 ESV

As the Lord Jesus teaches us about our priestly identity in Him, the Prayer Room is a great place to come before Him, undistracted, to minister to Him with worship and praise, to allow Him to minister healing, truth and transformation to us, and to minister to the earth with intercession and declaration.

And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”  - Mark 6:31

When we set ourselves before God in the Prayer Room, our sole purpose is to Love and Be Loved by the Living God. He has created us for this reason. In this place, you may ask Him to simply enjoy you, and lavish His love on you. You may ask Him to share His vision with you for a certain prayer focus, and then participate with Him in intercession by praying what He has shown you. 

Dearest Friends of the Prayer Room (and Bridegroom of course)

I truly appreciate all of your prayers and love. It’s been a long time since I updated everyone on what’s been happening at AHOP, so I’ll get right to it.

My husband Marc has taken over as CEO (acting director) and he is pouring himself into ministering to Jesus in the Prayer Room and working on events and projects. In fact, just a few weeks ago, he made the decision to go full time as a Madison County Intercessory Missionary. This means he is putting his strength into ministering to Jesus in the Prayer Room, facilitating corporate worship and prayer, and serving Madison County with acts of service. We believe that this is what the Lord is calling us to at this time, and so we trust that Jesus will keep His Word and provide. Prayers appreciated.

On September 11, six of us from Madison County will be traveling to Houston, TX to assist with relief efforts from the Hurricane Harvey devastation.

We greatly appreciates your prayers. We want to be an effective witness for Jesus Christ, while providing assistance and comfort to those affected. Our team will be joining Crisis Response International in Houston, and offering assistance to homeowners, as they begin to deal with damaged homes. We will also be distributing materials, food and supplies to those in need.

"After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the LORD who does all these things."

As we partner with God in building the house of prayer, it's easy to put the focus on ourselves. We think we need to work hard and try to accomplish things. More prayer, more meetings, lost sleep, music practice, trying to squeeze one more thing into our already busy lives... AAAGH!!!

But here's the thing. The LORD is the ONE who is raising up prayer and worship in every place (Malachi 1:11). Just stop and think about that. He has declared that He's going to do it, and He absolutely will. He will partner with us, if we're available, submissive and willing to do it His way. But the end result will be ENTIRELY His work, done with us and through Christ.
