Rob and Fran Parker are the founders and Directors of NHOP. They heard the call to create an “Embassy of Prayer” in the nation’s capital on Canada Day – July 1st, 2000 after Rob had made a 73 day Prayer Walk from Calgary to Ottawa. After several years of sharing the vision with other leaders across the nation they moved to the capital in 2004 to begin establishing a ministry that would mobilize prayer for government. God clearly led Rob and Fran in establishing a strategic and prayerful presence for the government of Canada. During the last 15 year hundreds of Christian believers have come to pray in the halls of government through the ministry of the National House of Prayer. Rob has also wrote a book called “We Have a Voice” which offers practical insight and important information to equip and encourage Christians to pray for their nation, vote responsibly, and be involved in the public square.
Amos 9:11 In that day, I will restore David's tabernacle....
A lasting journey
Our desire is to see unity in the body of Christ - that there would be no divisions between denominations and no walls between churches or congregations.
We believe every born again Christian has God given gifts that the world is longing to see and experience. We pray that believers would come into the knowledge of who they are and what they are capable of through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are praying that all who attend will be activated and equipped for the coming harvest of souls in Canada and beyond.
