The Biblical Call to Corporate Prayer and Worship
Central to the work of the Reflection Center is our prayer room, inspired by David’s tabernacle (1 Chr. 23:5; 25:7), where 288 singers and 4,000 musicians were employed as their full-time occupation to minister to the Lord and serve the community. We divide the schedule into 2 hour worship-based prayer meetings a day.
Scripture teaches that night-and-day prayer is deeply connected to the fullness of God’s power and purpose being released (Lk. 18:7–8; cf. Isa. 62:6–7). We are offering Jesus unceasing worship, while contending for the desires of God’s heart and for the power of the Holy Spirit to be manifest and bring transformation in every sphere of society.
Our Expression of Corporate Meetings and the Sacred Trust
Our prayer and worship sets are attended by a group of individuals from many denominational backgrounds who have all banded together to build sustained prayer and worship to Jesus in Galveston.
To join our community, the first and most important way to participate is by committing to joining at least one weekly prayer meeting (you can choose to join additional sets if you like and, of course, you are always welcome to come whenever you want!). We call this commitment joining the Sacred Trust, because we are making a sober commitment before the Lord to prioritize and participate in that weekly meeting every week. It is also a commitment to one another that we will be at our specific prayer meeting(s), unless we are out of town, sick, or have an unavoidable work conflict. Everyone in the Reflection Center community has made this same commitment to be a part of the Sacred Trust and we would love to have you join us in helping to establish night and day prayer here in our region.
Prayer Set Types
When you visit the corporate meeting, you will have a slightly different experience based on the type of set you walk into. All corporate meetings are 2 hours, but they follow a certain pattern dependent upon the format the prayer or worship leader has chosen.
Worship with the Word: Worship format where our team develops a passage through song and meditative prayer.
Intercession: Theme-based intercession with a full team where our singers turn your prayers into song.
Petition: Theme-based prayer with one or more musicians.
Devotional: One of our worship leaders leads out in a creative, song-writing, devotional worship environment.
Devotional Worship & Prayer: A Devotional worship set with several times throughout the meeting where we open the mic for prayer about a specific topic.
