We are a 24/7 House of Prayer in Kathmandu, Nepal that desires to discover the Father’s heart and release it over the nations

Prayer Room

And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.  He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man.  And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’  For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man,  yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’”  And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says.  And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them?  I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:1-8)

Will You Cry Out With Us Day and Night?

We are open 24/7 for people to have a safe place to come and spend time with God and we hold daily corporate prayer and worship gatherings.  Our desire is that, as Father God looks down from heaven, He would find sons and daughters in the nation of Nepal who know His name, are calling out to Him in prayer, and are holding fast to Him day and night in love.

THE VISION

By Clement Chen

          In November 2012, right before I was to travel for a short holiday to Taiwan and Hong Kong after having spent five months volunteering for a ministry in Nepal, Father God transported me in a vivid vision to the Garden of Gethsemane.  I entered a Gethsemane reminiscent of the famous opening scenes of the film, The Passion of the Christ.  Night had fallen and sorrow, overwhelming sorrow thicker then the mist that hung in the air that surrounded me, suffocated and weighed down upon me to the point of barely being able to breathe or even keep my eyes open.  I eventually fell to my knees under the weight, just past the disciples laying underneath a tree, already fallen asleep from sorrow.  Heavy laden from what I was witnessing, I gradually began to realise another reason for the unnerving feelings of discomfort I was experiencing.  Father God had taken away my ability to hear; I was completely deaf and the whole vision was made even more unsettling by the loss of one of my senses.  I watched in silence, the world eerily set on mute, as Jesus spoke with His Father, my Father, and I felt indescribable anguish watching His lips move in a conversation withheld from my deaf ears.  I sat and watched for what seemed like hours as Jesus spoke with His Father and I heard nothing.  Tears filled my eyes and inexplicable confusion mixed with sorrow overwhelmed my heart and when I felt as if I could bare it no more and that my eyes would close in sorrowful slumber, Father God spoke words that violently shook me awake in fresh anguish.  He said, “My child, do you want to know what that conversation was like with my Son?”  I was speechless, the immediate, “Yes,” in my heart was simultaneously wrestled to the ground by a, “No,” that arrested my ability to respond through fear of what a “Yes” to Father God’s question would cost.  I can imagine why the disciples fell asleep again after Jesus’s first rebuke.  Eventually, I choked out a weak whimper of an answer, “Yes.”  I don’t know where I found the strength, I’m certain I didn’t have it and it wasn’t my voice that was responding at all but, then Father God spoke, “As you pray in this prayer room, You will find out what that conversation with my Son was like.”  I was immediately taken out of the vision.

          That night, I carefully re-read the three major accounts found in Scriptures of the events that transpired in the Garden of Gethsemane prior to Judas’s betrayal (Matthew 26:36-46, Luke 22:39-46, Mark 14:32-42) and I discovered that my vision matched the testimonies of Matthew, Luke, and Mark.  Furthermore, little things that I had never noticed, such as that the disciples fell asleep because they were exhausted from sorrow (Luke 22:45), made sense and were real as they never had been before.  However, above all, one tiny realisation overwhelmed me to the point of tears; as Jesus prayed, He called out to Father God as, “Abba.” (Mark 14:32-42)  The word, “Abba,” is quite possibly the most important word in my personal testimony.  The weight of that word in my life is profound and, in this context, with the words that Father God spoke to me in my vision still ringing in my ears and resonating in my heart, I realised that I hadn’t even begun to comprehend the intimacy of the word, “Abba.”  As I tried to come to grips with the intimacy of the word, slowly forming it in my mouth, “Abba,” interchangeably with the word, “Daddy,” a frightening question suddenly arose in my heart, “What did Father God say to Jesus to convince Him to die?”  I’m not suggesting that Jesus didn’t willingly die, He did; however, I was slowly came to the horrifying realisation that Father God, not only as God but, as a Dad who Jesus intimately called “Abba,” who Jesus dwelt with on the same intimate level as the comfort held in the word, “Daddy,” had to somehow explain to His Son, Jesus, why Jesus had to die.  Frightened tears of sorrow, horror, thankfulness, joy, pain, and a dozen other emotions wrapped up in the same inexplicable confusion I felt in my vision flowed and overwhelmed me for hours.  I suddenly caught a glimpse of the story of Gethsemane through the eyes of Father God.  I had always read the story and taken lessons from it on the obedience of Jesus or the disciples’s lack of obedience but, for the first time, I caught a glimpse of Father God’s pain during the events that transpired in the garden and I felt His tears mingle with mine as Jesus must have felt as His tears mixed with the blood sweating from His brow.  Out of those tears sprang forth the Gethsemane House of Prayer – Kathmandu, Nepal.

          A young Christian Nepali woman came to visit our 24/7 Prayer Room during one of our worship sessions.  She shared with us many personal struggles and said that she had prayed to God with a very specific prayer request before she found us, “I just wanted a place where I could go and cry.”  Before she found us, she said that she was often afraid and would go out late in the evening looking for help or for a quiet safe place to pray.  She tried many local churches but, found them all locked.  Eventually, she got so desperate and overwhelmed by fear, that she went to an empty Buddhist stupa and prayed that God would give her a safe place to pray and cry.  At that stupa, she received a vision of a garden.  The week after, a Nepali friend invited her to our prayer room.  The Gethsemane House of Prayer – Kathmandu, Nepal exists to discover the Father’s heart in the place of 24/7 prayer and worship and release it over the nation of Nepal and further nations abroad through intercession, ceaseless adoration, acts of love, and works of justice.  We believe that the greatest message of hope that can transform the nation of Nepal is that God, through Jesus and as He promised in His Word, says to Nepal, “I will not leave you as orphans.” (John 14:18)  Through Jesus we have been made sons and daughters, royalty, and are no longer orphans. (Romans 8:15-17)  We’re not alone, we have a Father who we can cry out to as, “Abba.”  According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, “…slaves were forbidden to address the head of the family by” the title, “Abba.”  We are no longer slaves and we believe that we are called as disciples and children of God to take up our cross and follow Jesus (Matthew 16:24), do the works of Jesus (John 14:12), proclaim the good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom for the captives, release prisoners from darkness, (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah 61:1), declare the message that through Jesus we are no longer orphans, bring our brothers and sisters home, and destroy fear.  Our vision is to cultivate a culture of ceaseless adoration, to provide a safe and intimate environment to encounter God in the atmosphere of 24/7 worship and prayer, to empower, disciple, and release sons and daughters into the destiny Father God has for them, and to participate in His plan, doing whatever He asks of us, to rescue His sons and daughters who have yet to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Our prayer for the Gethsemane House of Prayer – Kathmandu, Nepal is that every son and daughter would discover the perfect love that casts out all fear (1 John 4:18) and that every child of God would hear Father God, Abba, Daddy saying to them “Do not fear!” (Lamentations 3:57) just as that young Christian Nepali woman did when she walked through our doors.

Core Values

1. Intimacy

We believe that we are hand-created by God for the purpose of satisfying God’s desire for intimacy, union, communion, and companionship and, we are empowered to accomplish this purpose through the Holy Spirit revealing to us the desires of His heart and surrendering ourselves, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to share His desires and His love for righteousness.  Every aspect of our lives flow from and serve this purpose.  Our greatest desire and joy is to love Him to the fullness of what He deserves.

2. 24/7 Prayer & Worship

We believe that the prayer Jesus prayed, “on earth as it is in heaven,” (Matthew 6:10) includes within it a command to minister to the Lord through unceasing adoration on earth, modelling the way He receives worship unceasingly in heaven. (Revelation 4)  We also put our trust, faith, and hope in God’s promise to “bring about justice for His elect, who cry to Him day and night.” (Luke 18)   We commit ourselves to the place of 24/7 prayer and worship believing that unceasing prayer and worship is the only fitting response to His worthiness.  It is how we are called to hold fast to Him in love and, in doing so, He will deliver, protect, answer prayers, rescue, honour, and bring many to the saving knowledge of Himself because we know, acknowledge His name, and lift it high. (Psalm 91:14-16)

3. Holiness & Consecration

“If it’s not worship to God, don’t do it!”  We highly value the honour that King Jesus has given us by bringing us into His inner chambers, paying for our access at the highest price of His life, and we make a stand to refuse to allow any other ‘lovers’ to have the rightful place He alone deserves.  (Song of Songs 1:4)  We commit ourselves to the privilege of daily carrying our cross and we pursue having clean hands and pure hearts so that we may ascend the hill of the Lord, stand in His holy place and, more than simply ‘not sinning,’  be visibly set apart for Him, made beautiful for our Bridegroom King, in radical consecration.  (Psalm 24)

4. Total Dependency

We completely depend upon God for everything.  If He doesn’t ‘show up,’ we can’t do it and we won’t do it.

5. Loving the Least

We recognise that a necessary evidence of authentic worship is that it compels us to the lowest place to joyfully love the least in the darkest and dirtiest places.  Revival, we believe, begins with the broken, humble, poor, lowly, and despised; the people that Jesus chose to spend His time with on earth.  Following His footsteps, we choose to spend our time with those people.  Following His command, we choose to freely give ourselves away to the orphan and the widow.

6. Suffering & Joy

We value, cherish, and rejoice in the opportunity to suffer in the Christian life recognising that learning to love the way that God loves necessarily requires a joyful willingness to carry our cross daily, keeping our eyes fixed, as His eyes were, on the joy of greater intimacy set before us.  (Psalm 24, Hebrews 12:2)  Also, we believe that suffering is an opportunity that we only receive during our earthly lifetime.  When we rejoice in suffering, it “overwhelms” the heart of God and we consider it a great joy and honour that Jesus would count us worthy of moving His heart.  (Song of Songs 6:5)

7. Family

We desire, as a family, to fully live out the model of fellowship as described in Acts 2 and 4:32-34.  We draw three principles from the Acts model of fellowship: living a lifestyle of radical generosity, daily corporate worship, and maintaining favour through living a lifestyle and maintaining an attitude of blessing toward all people.
