Vision
House of Prayer Edmonton’s (HoPE) vision is expressed in the following three words:
Worship – Intercession – Transformation

Worship – Passionately worshipping because He is worthy
Intercession – Partnering with God in agreement with His heart
Transformation – Seeing His kingdom manifest on earth as it is in heaven

Mandate
Our mandate is to glorify God and serve the body of Christ through:

  • establishing continual, corporate and unified worship and prayer in the prayer room
  • equipping others to engage in and sustain corporate worship and intercession
  • modeling, promoting and living out the revelation that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever

Ministry Values

  • Unity in the Church: We believe that across denominations Christians in the capital region need to stand together in the Spirit to experience His commanded blessing. (Psalm 133, Ephesians 2:20-22)
  • Intimacy with Jesus: Intimacy with Jesus is the foundation of sustained intercession. (Romans 8:15, 26-27)
  • Worship and Intercession: HoPE believes in bringing together worship and intercession, also known as 'Harp and Bowl,' as described in Revelation 5:8. We believe that intimate time spent with our Lord should be a fruitful experience that leaves us reflecting more of His image. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
  • Praying the Scriptures: HoPE calls the body of Christ to the Scriptures as a foundation for prayer. (Psalm 119, 1 Corinthians 2:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • Involvement in the Local Church: We believe in modeling, promoting and living out passionate intercession in the context of the local church. (1 Timothy 3:14-15, Hebrews 13:17)
