"FROM THE RISING OF THE SUN, EVEN TO ITS GOING DOWN, MY NAME SHALL BE GREAT AMONG THE GENTILES; IN EVERY PLACE INCENSE SHALL BE OFFERED TO MY NAME, AND A PURE OFFERING; FOR MY NAME SHALL BE GREAT AMONG THE NATIONS, SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS." - Malachi 1:11
Biblically and historically we see that day and night prayer is an intrigal part of the name of the Lord being exalted in cities and nations! We, at JHOP Boston have been envisioned and emboldened by God to build a culture of worship and prayer that the name of the Lord would be made great in Boston and the nations of the earth! Our driving and motivating passion is that the Lamb would receive the reward of His suffering in Boston!
We launched Jhop Boston in 2006 under the leadership of Lou Engle (Founder of TheCall and JHOP). He charged and commissioned us with these words."I beleive that now is Boston's time to raise up a house of prayer to contend for her destiny of another Great Awakening and to close the door to humanism and false ideologies that have come through Harvard and the universities of New England. Harvard is the flashpoint to take our stand for every campus across America. Let's dig the wells of revival in Boston and close the door to false ideologies that have come through Harvard. We have taught our students to feast and play. Now let's teach them to fast and pray. Now, is the time to raise up a house of prayer that contendes with every other house that challenges the Lordship and supremacy of Christ over all affairs." - Lou Engle
We have also been envisioned and provoked by the words that Derek Prince spoke in 1972. "Boston is the Jericho of the United States, and the Lord says that when I cause the walls of intellectualism to come tumbling down, then I shall pour out my Spirit upon this whole land." - Derek Prince
