Prayer - House of Prayer Church - Waterbury Connecticut


We train people to pray, providing them with diverse outlets of intercession to effectively petition God for answers.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association defines prayer in this way: “Prayer is spiritual communication between man and God, a two-way relationship in which man should not only talk to God, but also listen to Him.”

Here at House of Prayer Church, everything that can be seen and many unseen blessings have been birthed out of prayer. Prayer is at the core of our church. Our desire is that each person learn to pray effectively, seeing answers to prayer, growing in faith and moving the kingdom of God forward in each area of cultural influence. We desire to hear from God by giving ourselves to specific times of prayer and fasting. We listen for God. We lift up one another’s burdens through prayer. We communicate our needs to God and grow in intimacy with Him.

SOZO Inner Healing Ministry

The Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With a healed connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called. The Sozo session is not a counseling session. The Sozo team of one or more team members will sit down with you and with the help of the Holy Spirit walk you through the process to freedom and wholeness.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he has anointed me to be hope for the poor, freedom for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners, ‘You are set free!’ I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the time of God’s great acceptance has begun.” Luke 4:18 TPT

Intercessory Prayer

It is often said that prayer is not taught, it’s caught. Intercessors intercede on behalf of others. There are a variety of ways in which to connect with others in prayer. Some of the opportunities include prayer teams lead by seasoned prayer warriors that meet early mornings, evenings, and Thursday noon in the prayer room (see schedule outside of prayer room) and Friday overnight at the fire pit/FLC sanctuary. We also have special teams for specific assignments such as human trafficking; military; local, regional, national and international missions; healing, and deliverance.

Another way is to serve on Sundays: pre-service prayer in sanctuary, upstairs prayer room during service, and children’s service prayer. Any Sunday assignments are on rotation: one or two Sunday services a month. See application listed with forms.

Altar Ministry

As a house of prayer for all nations, we help to grow people in the knowledge of Jesus Christ through prayer, teachings and experiences. We provide diverse outlets of intercession to effectively petition God for answers. All pastors and ministers have been through training to ensure excellence when meeting needs of those coming to the altar. Altar workers are selected and trained by the pastors.
