Becoming a church that prays begins with our own personal prayer life, spreads into our home and family life, then moves into our small groups and larger church experience. In this workshop, Rob will share practicalities such as:

 How worship is part of our prayer life 
 How the Holy Spirit helps us to pray 
 How to use the Word of God to grow us in prayer 
 How to go deeper with God in our prayer life

Special Guest Speakers

Rob and Fran Parker are the founders and directors of the National House of Prayer in Ottawa. Following Rob's 73-day Prayer Walk from Calgary to Ottawa, they relocated to the capital in 2004 to establish a ministry that would mobilize prayer for government.

Rob is originally from Victoria, BC and worked as a paramedic in both the Canadian Arctic and the Saharan desert before studying at Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland and returning to pastor a church in his home city. Fran was born in Calgary but raised in Cape Breton. She served in the health care field, while working alongside her husband with the Baptist congregation in Vernon, BC. Thousands of Christian believers have come to pray in the halls of government through the ministry of the National House of Prayer.

Rob offers practical insight and important information to equip and encourage Christians to pray for their nation and to respond to current events in prayer.
