The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. James 5:16 (MSG)
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
Advancing the Kingdom of God through enjoyable worship and engaging prayer
Our prayer room is modeled after a blend of prayer and worship forerunners, and has evolved over the past years into a place where people come to encounter God in deep worship, engaging prayer, and sit in place where they can rest in His Presence.
The Prayer Room is located just outside Chicago, IL, central to many of the city's suburbs. Our prayer room is designed to serve the region, cultivate a spirit of revival and restoration, and develop a healthy prayer and worship community within the Body of Christ.
The Prayer Room is open to the public and we love to network with local churches and ministries for the development of young worshipers to gain experience. All are welcome to freely come and go within our hours of operation. We look forward to worshiping with you in the near future!
The Vision Behind the Prayer Room
The Need is our world, nation, cities and communities in chaos and crisis. They are at a tipping point. Individuals, businesses, ministries, and organizations of all sizes are feeling the need for prayer support.
We seek to positively and effectively impact the transformation that results from the tremendous power released through passionate, heartfelt prayer of godly believers! (James 5:16, The Passion Translation).
We are a dynamic part of a global prayer movement used by the Lord to release an outpouring of His Spirit that is touching generations through healing, deliverance, salvation and restoration (Joel 2:12-17, 28-29).
The Opportunity is to impact our world and advance the Kingdom of God through prayer and obedience.
We pray for the release of the fullness of God's power and purpose, as we actively be freedom for the brokenhearted, hope for the poor, healing for the sick, sight to the blind, and proclaim the Good News as good news, and impact the seven spheres of society—arts & entertainment, business & finance, education, family, government, media, and religion.
Our vision is to work in relationship with the Body of Christ to serve the Great Commission, as we seek to walk out the two great commandments; to love God and to love people.
As a result, those who were formerly His enemies, the ones lost and broken and bound, will begin to declare the excellencies of Him who called them out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9).
The Goal is to develop an intimate and effective worship and prayer-based sending center that reaches beyond our four walls, into our community and the earth.
We seek to facilitate the ongoing development of a surrendered generation that seeks to honor God, desires unity and values a lifestyle of prayer and worship.
We want to create a place where believers of all generations, cultures and backgrounds can come together and learn how to effectively use " effective prayer and worship" as a life-style.
The Strategy is to build a prayer room in our community that reaches out to all members of society - pre-believer or believer - who feels the need for prayer.
We seek to train, equip and mobilize people to live a life of prayer and worship as they proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to heal the sick, help the needy, make disciples, and bring transformation and justice to society. We make it our aim to live as fully devoted disciples of Jesus and raise up a generation of worshipers fluent in the arts.
Some of the strategies to accomplish this will be:
Diverse worship teams and prayer sets
Training in the arts: music, dance, communications, and media
Justice initiatives, prayer and action
Healing with opportunities to minister healing
Community outreach and regional unity
After school programs for youth and children
Our Values are to prioritize intimacy with Jesus Christ and encounter His Presence. This is essential to who we are and what we do.
As a result, we will focus on these four values:
Enjoyable Prayer through combined worship and intercession; engaging with The Word as a singing seminary.
Unity through praying scripture; establishing unity within the Body of Christ, the prayer movement and like-minded individuals and organizations.
Raising Up a Generation of worshipers in the arts, honoring family values and relationships, training in the arts and the fullness of discipleship.
Justice Initiatives: taking Biblical action, living in and establishing freedom.

Business Prayer Initiative
At the heart of this ministry is to strengthen the business conducted both in marketplace or in ministry. As we began in January of 2013, God instructed us to invite businesses, ministries, and service organizations to receive prayer and prophetic encouragement.
As we listened, our sense from God was to ONLY pray for those who received our invitation, and said "Yes, please pray for my organization!"
It is from this strong position of agreement in prayer that we:
1. Dedicate ourselves to pray each week on Thursday mornings from 10-11am at The Prayer Room for God's Spirit of love, grace, mercy, favor, and divine connection (to name a few) to pour out on each one (Isaiah 61:1-2; Luke 4:18-19).
2. Expect God to show up in miraculous ways in each organization, in direct correlation and relationship as to what the person who asked us to pray is desiring or expecting.
3. Are currently praying for over 260 organizations globally, and the number is growing each week, as more and more organizations are discovering this service of prayer for them.
If you would like the Business Initiative and The Prayer Room to pray for your organization (business, ministry, or service), simply let us know.
Or, simply send us an email at: KSC4Business@gmail.com
Also, periodically we sent out an KSC Business update, sharing samples of what we are praying over you, and asking you to share with us how God showed up (your testimony - "do it again, God") of the results of our effective prayers in agreement. If we are already praying for you, please share your testimony of God's blessing on your organization.
As God blesses KSC Business to expand its vision & training opportunities, we will share more information about our business trainings in four major areas:
