Silence Stories: Users Share Their Experiences of Arkansas House of Prayer


Candice C.

I found out about the House of Prayer from a friend at Bible class; I’ve been coming to the House of Prayer for seven years. My experience of praying in the House of Prayer was so overpowering and filled with silence; God was showing me at times my soul needed rest, and then I will fall into a sweet sleep. This means a great deal to me, just being still, because there are times we need to stop and slow down and smell the flowers.

I really enjoy telling a lot of the associates I work with about the House of Prayer—I even take flyers to work. There are times I was told, “You look so relaxed,” and my husband says I’m glowing. This place is a big blessing from my Heavenly Father.
