We need a Prayer Room!

This is a prayer request as well as newsletter to inform you on what's going on at House of Good Hope.  We've been meeting both at South Church and in my home, and it's starting to get crowded!  We are longing for a location where we can hang our maps and artwork, set up our chairs and sound system.  Please pray with us as we seek the Lord for a new location?  Also, if you have any ideas on where we could establish this house of prayer, please contact us?  We've been discussing a wide variety of creative ways to obtain an affordable prayer room.


We're partnering with Sparrow Ministries April 25

There is a marvelous new ministry in the city!  Every Saturday morning from 6-9am teams of friendly, energetic believers serve breakfast to the homeless & forgotten on the streets of Hartford outside of South Church, 277 Main Street.  Teams of prayer warriors pray for them, worship leaders are out with their instruments,praising and worshipping the Lord while the people are eating breakfast. Such a joyous atmosphere is created that many have given their lives to Jesus just by their coming for breakfast!

We at House of Good Hope are volunteering to partner with Sparrow Ministries Saturday morning, April 25.  Contact us either via email or call us at 860-540-4644 if you'd like to join us.


Gather 7 of your friends, church group, Bible study partners, or co-workers and join with us for 2 hours as we read the entire Bible on the steps of the State Capitol building.

April 12 & April 26, 4-6 pm

Starting in April, we will meet for prayer twice a month, not just monthly.  Harp & bowl prayer and intercession will now be the 2nd and the 4th Sunday of each month.  For the past 3 months the prayer meetings have been well-attended and gloriously filled  of the Presence of God, now is the time to increase the meetings.  Join us in April as we pray for Hartford, for Connecticut, for the New England region, for our country, for the world.  Zack & Becky Mitchell, our worship leaders, have been leading us powerfully into God's Presence.



 Mondays, 7-9pm
South Church, 277 Main Street, Hartford

We are now studying the book, Rees Howells, Intercessor.  All are welcome!  



International House of Prayer, Kansas City  offers a  monthly 8-day training called IMMERSE.  This offers an "immersion" of the lifestyle of 24/7 prayer.  On May 16-23 the teaching will be on "Building a House of Prayer".   This is a practical training on how to build a prayer ministry using the IHOPKC model of worship and intercession.  Seven of us want to go for the training, including a family of five. This money will pay for our tuition and housing the 8 days we are there.

Approximately $1716 has now been collected.

Two of us now have our class, plane tickets and hotel paid for.  Thank you all for your generosity!  But we want to bring our worship leaders with us along with their children!  Classes are offered for the children to also learn how to become intercessors, as well as training for the adults.  This is a powerful opportunity for this whole family. 

In order for all of us to go, we need at least $5000, or $3284 more.
