24 Hour Harp & Bowl Worship Model
The basic 24 hour harp and bowl worship model uses four different prayer formats:
Intercessory Prayer:Intercession is intimacy, partnership and agreement with God. Intercessory prayer isan exchange of romance where God speaks to us and it moves our hearts. When wespeak back to God, His heart is moved. God desires to establish or deepen thisromantic relationship with us. He desires intimacy with us. The power to engage innight and day prayer is found in having a heart that enjoys God. Encountering God’s beauty and desire for us is where we most enjoy our primary reward, which is GodHimself.Prophetic Worship:Prophetic worship is designed to facilitate united group participation in worship sothat we might receive the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

This helps us to gain deeper revelation,knowledge and understanding about a specific Biblical passage or theme of Scripture.The worship team focuses on one specific passage or theme by singing through keyverses from that passage or about that theme. This causes the Word to come alive tous.Devotional Worship Prayer:Devotional worship provides an anointed atmosphere for meditation on scripture andfor lingering in the presence of God. During this format, the worship songs and musicstyle are devotional in focus so that we may“sit at the feet of Jesus” as Mary of Bethany did.
