Prayer & Worship

in the Prayer Room

Worship is how we express our love, adoration, admiration, and wonder at God’s presence.

“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.” A.W. Tozer 

Romans 12:1 - Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.


We desire that prayer would be ignited in the hearts of every believer. We endeavor to facilitate this through encountering the love and presence of God in worship and partnering with Jesus Christ the Great Intercessor. Our weekly prayer and worship times are the heartbeat of who we are.

The Prayer Room is open to everyone who wants to participate. While in the Prayer Room, feel free to join in with corporate worship and prayer, read your Bible, study the Word, write in your journal, or engage in personal prayer. You’re free to sit, stand, or pace the aisles.

The 3 basic formats we use are Corporate Intercession, Devotional Worship, and Worship with the Word:

Corporate Intercession lasts for 2 hours. Each hour starts with worship led by one of our worship teams for about 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of strategic intercession led by a prayer leader. There are opportunities for everyone to participate.

Devotional Worship can be 1/2 hour to 2 hours long. During this set, one or more musicians lead a time of “gazing on the beauty of the Lord” (Psalm 27:4). The atmosphere is relaxed and contemplative.

Worship with the Word is another format we use. During this time, everyone joins in corporate worship and also engages in times of Bible reading by a prayer leader, followed by singing the passages that have been read.

Weekly Sunday Service

10 a.m.

Our 10 a.m. Sunday meeting is an authentic time to engage with God through worship, the Word, and prayer. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed.

Worship creates a space for us to experience the tangible presence of the Lord and prepares our hearts to receive His Word. When you come, you can expect to experience praise and worship for about 45 minutes, with room for corporate intercession or prayer for those who desire it.

Following worship, we have weekly announcements and a time of sharing the Word of God by someone in our community or a guest speaker. We also have times when we break into appropriate groups for down-to-earth discussions.

ODHOP passionately believes we should prepare the next generation for the Lord’s return, so children are always welcome. After worship, Good Soil Children’s Ministries is prepared with a Christ-centered curriculum that’s appropriate for children ages 3 to 12.

After our gathering, don’t rush off because we often grab a cup of coffee and connect with each other in the garden while the children enjoy the age-appropriate playground areas.
