"My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations"
The map at left represents leaders who have used 1Church1Day (formerly Operation Rolling Thunder) to mobilize the churches in their city and region to establish 24/7 prayer, praise and worship in the spirit of the restoration of David's tabernacle. In 2008 this strategy led to the launch of 5 city prayer centers within 3 months. Those have since multiplied to a current total of 36 (updated 9-16-13) prayer centers-- hubs of activity in a Christian community that create a place where corporate prayer and supplication to our Lord can be made. We have from Catholic to Charismatic and from Presbyterian to Pentecostal working together in many communities.
As churches in a community pray together we often see the Lord lead them to establish city prayer centers, new church plants, orphanages, widows homes, Bible schools and much more-- Corporate intimacy produces corporate fruit!
Apostle John Mark in Burma and his team have birthed 4 city prayer centers beginning in 2008. Persecution is common in their country but passion for the gospel is strong. Click here for more about Burma.
By the Holy Spirit
Apostle John Mark said of the prayer center (above) in 2009, "We've almost finished building the prayer house... The name...is called Horeb Prayer House.... given by the Holy Spirit to one church deacon while fasting in that place. [It is] built outside of the village...on the top of the mountain...by the strength of fellowship of all believers at [this town.] Praise God."
Jason Hubbard began working with Tim Taylor, the architect of the 1Church1Day/ORT strategy, in it's first year in 2005. 1Church1Day (ORT) helped Jason move his vision for uniting churches in a community with 24/7 prayer into a reality. This led to the launch of Light of the World Prayer Center (LOWPC) in 2008, making it the first of the five city prayer centers birthed through1Church1Day/ORT that year.
Light of the World
Working closely with Tim, LOWPC has become like a flagship helping pioneer the strategy. LOWPC is one of our finest examples-- integrating harp and bowl type of prayer, praise, and worship, while coordinating the efforts of 31 churches each month building the wall of prayer. Their passion is "To see Whatcom County transformed to the Glory of God! May the Lamb receive the due reward for his sufferings!"
In 2005 Whatcom county was the least-churched in the US. Since then, they have seen an over 70 percent increase in church plants. Whatcom now also leads the state in the lowest number of abortions, and have set records for adoptions 3 years running! These are a small sample of the countless testimonies of change that have come out of Christ's abiding presence in a community. The Church growth alone illustrates that corporate intimacy produces corporate fruit. To watch The Whatcom County Story, a mini-documentary of the transformation there, click here.
KLI work in Pakistan is wide-spread. Here we can highlight the launch of one City Prayer center in a central town in Pakistan.

Fruit of the Ministry
The lead pastor that launched ORT and the City Prayer Center here writes: We have started organizing our programs of WMI. The results are very fruitful and we thank the Lord Jesus Christ and you who provide us the opportunity that we start the ORT and 24/7-prayer programs in [our city]... As a Local CONECTer for the _ Region it’s my great happiness if the program will be organized in [my city] because every one can reach here easily from all over Pakistan."
