Christian Concourse Ministries, Inc. fully endorses and encourages the Light Houses of Prayer concept. Below we provide information given us by Norm Przybylski, former Hampton Roads Coordinator for Light Houses of Prayer.
Two, three or more believers in Christ,
gathering together to bring heaven to their neighborhood, school,
office, or any other place where people form community. This
happens through praying, caring, and sharing.
Over 72 denominations, encompassing nearly 200,000 churches and over 275 major ministries committed to establish 3,000,000 Lighthouses of Prayer by the year 2001.
"100 years ago spiritual pioneers such as D.L. Moody and A. T. Pierson felt they had enough resources, people and momentum to see the great commission fulfilled before the year 1900. But in 1898, two years before the turn of the century, they realized they lacked the adequate sustained prayer necessary to succeed."
"Today, over 72 denominations, encompassing nearly 200,000 churches and over 275 major ministries have committed to establish 3,000,000 Lighthouses of Prayer by the year 2000 to ensure that there is adequate prayer coverage over America. . . . You can help change the world one home at a time"

"I believe that one of the most exciting developments on the
Christian agenda is The Lighthouse Movement. Through fervent
and united prayer, we are seeing the power of the Living God
released for the salvation of family and loved ones and for revival
and righteousness in the land."
Bishop George McKinney
"The Lighthouse Movement has brought the body of Christ together in a way that is unique in American history. I am praying that God will use this Movement to help bring about a massive nationwide renewal and spiritual awakening in the months ahead" Dr. Billy Graham
"The Lighthouse movement is exploding on every front. As Christians pray for and share the love of Jesus in their neighborhoods, workplaces and schools, countless thousands, perhaps millions, of lives will be saved for eternity." Evelyn Christenson
