Currently, the Brooklyn House of Prayer conducts monthly watches. These watches are called The Tabernacle of David
and employ harp and bowl worship and intercession
. King David built a special tabernacle in Jerusalem to house the Ark of the Covenant (1 Chronicles 15:1; 16:1) He organized 4,000 musicians and 288 singers to minister to God before the Ark in shifts that continued 24 hours a day (1 Chronicles 6:31-33; 15:16-22; 23:4-6).
The Holy Spirit is orchestrating a global prayer strategy in these days and it is a new prayer paradigm. It is characterized by joy (Isaiah 56:7) and will be sustained 24 hours a day. We are seeing Houses of Prayer springing up in our nation and around the world. Many are already moving in 24/7 worship and intercession. This is the future of the Brooklyn House of Prayer, as well.
"The 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp and golden bowlsfull of incense, which are the prayers of the saints." (Rev. 5:8) The heavenly elders came to Jesus with two things: a harp and a bowl. The harp speaks of God's music and worship; the bowl speaks of intercession. This is the key to the "joy of prayer" Isaiah prophesied. When the "harp" (worship music) comes together with the "bowl" (intercession), a spiritual dynamic occurs. God ordained that the worship music around the throne flow interactively with intercession. The spirit of worship gives wings to prayer. We call this the "harp and bowl model of intercessory worship.
King David valued the prophetic spirit (spirit of inspiration) resting on the singers and musicians in his tabernacle (1 Chr. 25:1-3). So, also in our prayer meetings, it is important to learn how the prophetic spirit can flow more freely on the musicians, singers and intercessors in an interactive relationship with God. David also emphasized responsive singing and antiphonal choirs that answered one another in song (Ezra 3:11; Nehemiah 11:23-24).
We encourage everyone to join us as we enjoy the presence of the Lord in the beauty realm (Psalm 27:4; 145:5) and intercede for the great harvest.
