- We are a non-denominational Christian ministry of worship, prayer and church unity, founded in September of 2013. The Mt. Zion House of Prayer follows the harp and bowl pattern for prayer; which means, we participate in group prayer which is accompanied by unceasing worship on instruments. This model for prayer has been inspired by the Tabernacle of David described in the Bible (1 Chr. 9:33; 16:37; 23:5; 25:7; 2 Chr. 8:12-14; 31:4-6, 16; 2 Chr. 34:9, 12; Neh. 10:37-39; 11:22-23; 12:44-47; 13:5-12) where hundreds of full time singers and musicians ministered to the God of Israel around the clock.
We are currently located in a private residence on a scenic hill overlooking the beautiful Connecticut River, where the three states of NH, MA and VT meet. Mt. Zion House of Prayer is a safe place where believers from every stream in the body of Christ can come to experience the refreshing presence of God and enter into prayer and worship with others who love Jesus.
Our goal is to promote John 17 church unity and the increase of Holy Spirit activity in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts specifically and throughout the greater New England area. We will achieve these goals through sustained prayer and worship. Our goal is to unite with other believers in Jesus to eventually offer 24/7 sustained worship, intercession and outreach, that God’s honor might be restored to the earth. This house of prayer is only one of tens of thousands of houses of prayer that have emerged in the earth in the past two decades. We consider ourselves to be part of the Global Prayer Movement which is rising in the earth. We long for the day when the words of the prophet Malachi will be fulfilled where he says,
“My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the LORD Almighty.” (Mal. 1.11)
Our vision is to establish sustained prayer, worship and evangelistic outreach in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts and beyond. The Mt. Zion House of Prayer is not a church but is intended to be a resource for local churches and Christians in Southwestern NH, Southeastern Vermont and Northwestern Massachusetts and beyond. It is a place where believers in Jesus have the freedom to come, express themselves fully in worship and prayer, receive fresh encouragement and be touched by God’s Spirit. It is also a place where we equip the Body of Christ to go out to communicate the love of Jesus to anyone that does not know of His salvation.
We sense a corporate call to be closely connected with the Northfield, MA campus of former D.L. Moody. Mr. Moody’s campus, built on a scenic elevation, was likened to “Mt. Zion” in the Bible which was “the joy of whole earth” (Ps. 48:2) because it became such a strategic center for Christian training, equipping and spiritual refreshment in the late 19th century. You are welcome to visit us during any of our normal prayer gatherings. Please call for times and directions. 413.801.0871.
