What are RoiHOP's Foundational Values?
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
How we will fulfill our mission in day and night prayer, and the standards we refer back to when making critical decisions. “We desire to…”
Be a (regional) prayer room that is a refuge of safety and a sacred space to encounter the Living God; a place of rest, renewal, restoration, reconciliation, redemption, and resurrection.
Isaiah 56:7 “I will bring them to my holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in my house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” also see Isaiah 40:31, Psalm 62:1&2
Keep the first commandment first in lives of intimacy with God, loving Him wholeheartedly and well.
Matthew 22:37-38 “And He said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.’” also see Psalm 27:4, Romans 12:1&2, Deut 6:4&5
Love people. Operating as intercessors in truth and love, we seek to build up, encourage and console in partnership with the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 22:39 (2nd commandment) “And the second is like it, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” also 1 Cor.14:3, Romans 12:9&10
Be fully grounded in the living and active Word of God; to honor the centrality of the Scriptures and sharpen our discernment through regular, devoted study.
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of god is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Also see 1 Peter 1:23, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Psalm 119:105, John 17:17
Minister to the Lord and for the Lord. To listen, seek, gaze on Him in prayer, worship, music and song; to hear His voice and respond to what we hear. Demonstrate and encourage deepening lifestyles of prayer and worship.
Psalm 27:4, “One thing have I asked of the Lord that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and inquire in His temple.” Also see 2 Chronicles 29:11, Jeremiah 23:18, Dan 2:28a
Bless the body of Christ by humbly serving and building up the local church, pursuing relationships and unity beyond denominational boundaries.
Ephesians 4:1-3“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Also see John 13:14-17, Ez 22:30a
