2 Samuel 24:18

Would you join with United Cry and churches in this region to establish an altar of prayer within your church?

UC - Altars of Prayer.png
The Lord is speaking so clearly in this season that it is imperative to build the altar of prayer at the local church level. It is time to bring prayer out of the back room into the main room and have everything centered and flowing out of the place of prayer. 


In this hour, the Lord is calling us to come along the side of pastors and the local church to build altars of prayer. 


Our mandate is that every local church would have a dedicated, corporate gathering of prayer at least once per week. That could be on a Sunday evening, Wednesday evening, or whenever it best fits each churches schedule.


Matthew 21:13 - “My house will be called a house of prayer.”

The Church of Jesus is becoming and will be a House of Prayer.

It is vital that our end goal is the same as Jesus — that the Church would become a house of prayer for all the nations. God is not just building a  movement, He’s building His Church. If our efforts are not moving towards the long-term vision of seeing the local church truly become a House of Prayer, a presence-centered, praying church in every place, then we are missing what the Lord is doing in a very intentional way.

How to Establish Altars of Prayer

Individual Altar:

An individual altar is an intentional time and place of communication and fellowshipping with God. This is a time you have assigned, committed, and set aside for God to meet with Him on 'one-on-one' level or basis. It comes with a specific time at which you seek the face of God and build an intimate relationship with God. 


  1.  Choose a specific time and place each day “In the morning, O LORD, hear my voice. In the morning I lay my needs in front of you, and I wait.” Psalm 5:3

    1. Set aside a suggested time of 30 minutes to an hour 

    2. Create a time of worship with worship music

    3. Choose a specific location in home this  could be a chair, table, room. 

  2. Incorporate praise and  worship; have a time of giving thanks and praise to the Lord. “Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.”  I Chronicles 16:23

  3. Incorporate reading the Word “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:2

  4. Incorporate praying the Word:   Take a scripture and turn it into a prayer.  For example, Psalm 23:1. “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.” An example of turning it into a prayer would be “Lord, you are my shepherd. I trust your leadership and guidance. Give me a heart that follows and does not wander. You have given me all I need. I trust your provision. I thank you for caring for all the details of my life. You are my good shepherd.”

  5. Practice “listening prayers" with Journal – just be quiet before the Lord and hear what He speaks to your heart and journal it. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27

Family Altar:

A family altar is established when the people in the home come together to seek, draw, and worship God so that He can tangibly affect and change the atmosphere in their home. The family becomes more God-centered, and the presence of God begins to affect relationships and the things they do in the home. It even helps protect the home from attacks from the enemy. 


  1.  Designate a specific time and place in the home at least once a week. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9

  2. Incorporate worship; have a time of giving thanks and praise to the Lord “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” Colossians 3:16

  3.  Read the Word together “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6

  4. Pray over specific needs in the family. “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” James 5:16

  5. Take communion together “And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19

Corporate Altar (Local churches & Houses of Prayer):

A corporate altar of prayer is where a body of believers comes together to seek, draw, and worship the presence of God so He can tangibly affect and change the atmosphere within the congregation, the community, and the city. It is through corporate altars of prayer that that revival and spiritual awakening is birthed, and open heavens (on earth as it is in heaven) begins to open over the local church, city, and region. 


  1.  Designate a specific time and location at least once a week “Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints”  Ephesians 6:18

  2. Incorporate praise and worship, a time of giving thanks and praise to the Lord. “Be filled with the Spirit; speaking one to another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.” Ephesians 5:18-20

  3.  Have specific prayer such as:

    1. Prayer for revival and spiritual awakening within the congregation, community, and city.

    2. Prayer for specific needs within the congregation

    3. Prayer for the community and city leaders, such as  the mayor and city council, school board, police department, etc. 

  4. Have a time of sharing of testimonies of God’s faithfulness and  answers to prayer.  “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience.” I Peter 3:15
