"I serve in the House of Prayer because I love Jesus and He is worthy of 24/7 worship and prayer.
Jesus is the passion of my life, and so I spend myself to serve Him in the House of Prayer by offering my strength, gifting and remaining days pursuing His heart, contending in prayer over current justice issues and for the primary justice issue on the Father’s heart - the absence of Jesus.
We live to “speed the day of His coming” (2 Peter 3:12), and I can think of no better way to speed His return and grow the heart of Christ’s Bride than through continually singing His Word in prayer and worship, making ourselves ready for His return."
