Isaiah Ch 56 v 6 – 8
For mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
In October 2010 I (Michael) attended a conference in the New Destiny Church in Portimao, Algarve.

A few days later I had an email from a pastor from Fonte da Vida a large local Portuguese Church asking me to come and pray with him.
When I arrived he said the Spirit of God had told him to contact me to say we must start a “House of Prayer.” He knew nothing of the word that had been spoken over me!
How is that for Gods confirmation! Obedience is better than sacrifice .
The following week we started the Powerhouse of Prayer.It is a very exciting venture, we are learning of the many levels of prayer that the Holy Spirit leads us into; this is certainly not a boring prayer meeting!
