About the Book

This book explores the pastor-intercessor relationship in making our city a house of prayer by suggesting ways to rethink how we can interact with cross-denominational leadership, opening the way for unity to flourish.

Additionally, we provide guidelines for appropriate altar ministry and corporate prayer settings, prayers for youth and children, and tools for writing your own prayers addressing the mission and vision statement of your own, or other, ministries. We also address the business aspect of starting a ministry and walk the reader through the process of taking a small prayer group from the home into the community and making your city a house of prayer.

“Any book with a title like Make Your City a House of Prayer begs to be read! We in the USA are such an independent, individualistic bunch and often suffer from not praying and working together to advance His Kingdom in our cities and nation. Such heart unity, my colleagues and I have observed in many national prayer initiatives, is what facilitates the breakthroughs and transformations of the Lord even in impossible, discouraging, oppressive situations. We do need the kind of paradigm that Lynn Ferder shares in her book. She has much experience in personally living out this paradigm and in training many others to do so. Her guidelines for corporate, united prayer and the place of children and youth will also be extremely valuable. I heartily endorse this book and its wonderful theme. May it catch on across our nation and in other nations as well!”

About the Author

Lynn Ferder is the director for the House of Prayer in Roseburg, Oregon. Lynn is a Bible teacher and speaker with a prophetic calling. She teaches practical understanding and application of Biblical truths in everyday life. The longing for a deep prayer life and communion with God began when she was just sixteen years old. Over the years she has nurtured and developed a heart for prayer and the desire to see others have a meaningful prayer life.

Lynn’s conferences on prayer include practice sessions; this allows those attending to have immediate comprehension on how to actually use and apply the teachings. Lynn plays the harp and guitar and brings one of these instruments to accompany the prayer workshops.

In her twenties, Lynn was a childbirth education teacher and lay midwife. Later, she became a registered nurse and enjoyed serving in the field of psychiatry. As the call and direction of the Lord moved on her life, she began spending more and more time in ministry roles as a life-coach, counselor and Bible teacher. Lynn was ordained as a minister in 2006.

Lynn’s heart and passion continue to be spending time in worship, prayer, adoration of the Lord Jesus, and teaching others how to do the same.

Lynn has been married to Richard for over thirty-seven years. She is the mother of four daughters and has eleven grandchildren.
