When King David decided to establish his earthly kingdom around the presence of God, he said, “If it seems good to you, and if it is of the Lord our God... let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we have not inquired at all since the days of Saul” (1 Chronicles 13:2-3). The word inquired in Hebrew is ‘darash’ which means to seek God through prayer and worship. UPPERROOM defines prayer as relationship with God. Prayer, then, is the foundation of our life in God. Prayer reestablish his Garden of Eden reality of walking with God in the cool of the day. This workshop will explore prayer and will answer questions like “How do I hear the voice of God?” and “What is unction?” and “How do I pray from unction?”

When King David decided to establish his earthly kingdom around the presence of God, “… He appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the Lord, to commemorate, to thank, and praise the Lord God of Israel” (1 Chronicles 16:4). UPPERROOM defines worship as agreeing with who God is. As we come before His presence with thanksgiving and praise, we see him rightly and we hear him clearly so we then love him fully. Worship, then, shapes our hearts, our minds, and our lives into the image of God. This workshop will explore worship and will answer questions like, “What is thanksgiving and praise?” and “What is worship? “And “how do I move from function to heart as I worship?”
When King David decided to establish his earthly kingdom around the presence of God, he gathered musicians and singers who were trained and skillful in thanking and praising and ministering to God through music. UPPERROOM is raising up a levitical generation that will, first and foremost, seek the manifest presence of God through prayer and worship thus helping to fulfill the prophetic word of Amos 9:11, “In that day I will restore the fallen house of David. I will repair its damaged the walls. From the ruins I will rebuild it and restore its former glory.” This workshop will explore presence-based musicianship and will answer questions like, “What is prophesying on your instrument? “and “How do you play from your heart?” and “How do I practice effectively?”
PRAYING THE BIBLE
The word of God is powerful and when we pray His word, our prayers are powerful. But we don’t just randomly pray scriptures, we co-labor with the Holy Spirit. We will discuss partnering with the Word and the person of Holy Spirit in the place of prayer.
A soaking prayer room is another way we create a space in which we invite God to come touch and love on His people, with no human agenda. Through waiting in His Presence — so the presence of His Love has freedom to do whatever He wants to do.
