We hope your time here will be peaceful and renewing. In silence we may feel God’s presence, experience guidance, restore our energy, and be filled with insights. As you leave the fast pace of daily life, may the quiet in this place, the design of the building, and the beauty in nature bless you on your journey. The House of Prayer is a joint ministry of the Diocese of Arkansas and St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church.
“I just want you to know how much I love this House of Prayer! I’ve been strugging with some things lately, and I’ve had so many ‘breakthroughs’ since I have been visiting the House of Prayer. It’s really true: ‘Be still and know that I am God.’ ”
“We’re only two miles from the House of Prayer. We’ll be visiting often. Both our time at the House of Prayer and the drive there and back are peaceful.”
“When I entered the meditation room, I was drawn to the circle of earth in the middle and then immediately to the sky as I looked up. I knew that my sister would also want to visit this holy place. We will return.”
“I wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes worried, sometimes very sad, and I can’t get back to sleep. With a key fob, I can come and be at peace any time during the day or night.”
“Visiting the House of Prayer is one way that I can prepare spiritually for my surgery and my recovery.”
“When I left the building I felt cleansed of petty issues”
“The last time I wept as copiously on entering a house of prayer was on a visit to the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople in 1956, when I sat under the dome with no other soul around.”
“I loved going with family. Quietness. Cushions. Having someone at the House to greet us.”
“I enjoyed the gracious welcome and the intentional opportunity for people to slow down before they enter the prayer circle.”
“This is a beautiful and very sacred spiritual place.”
“I felt closer to God than ever before. I prayed a lot to God last night. I talked to him about how we are both alike and how we are going to change the world”.
