You Are God’s Mobile Prayer House


The temple that Solomon built in Jerusalem was, as I term it, God’s residence here on earth. People went there to worship and pray. When Jesus encountered merchants who turned the temple into a supermarket, he drove them. He declared, Is it not written: My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers (Mark 11: 17). God moved again and changed His residential address to your heart. Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? (1 Cor. 3:16). Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, …? You are not your own (1 Cor. 6:19). We are Mobile Temples with God residing in us. As Temples, we are indeed houses of prayer, and a lot of praying should be going on in those “houses.” Sadly, many of us have converted God’s temple, our bodies, into every type of business we desire, with very little or no worship and prayer happening. May we yield to God and His ways so that He will feel at home in our hearts.
