The Great Southwest Prayer Center, also known as GSWPC, is a geographic location set apart as a place of prayer. It is located inside the Mansion of Grace Fellowship United Methodist Church’s campus. In The Great Southwest Prayer Center are many prayer stations to encourage and enhance prayers for the church, Methodism, singles, marriages, families, ‘community’, the city of Katy, the United States, the nations, our leaders, healing, freedom, the unborn, Jerusalem, the lost and much more. There are two prayer rooms. The Call Room and Jordan’s Crossing are cozy, peaceful places to retreat to spend time alone with God. These rooms may be reserved. If you like praying in the evening, night or early morning, a larger prayer room, the Moravian Room, is available 24/7 with a convenient bathroom. The Moravian Room cannot be reserved. The Great Southwest Prayer Center also houses Audience of One or A-1: live worship and prayer to our Audience of One. Our desire is that one day this will happen 24/7.
All are welcome to come, sit, pray, worship Jesus, and read their Bibles, regardless of denomination or church affiliation. We encourage people to come, step away from their personal pursuits or even ministry for a time, and engage in the prayer & worship taking place here and encounter God in a refreshing way.
We also invite you to consider being a part of the activities in the prayer center.

Audience of One is the name of our live prayer and worship sets in the prayer center. It is a corporate expression of worship and prayer to our Audience of One, the Lord our God. Facilitated by churches in the Katy/West Houston area, it is a love offering to the One that first loved us. Audience of One is a gathering place where people can hear the heart of the Lord as they share their heart with Him. All are welcome and you are free to come and go as you like.
This room is a lobby – an entry way into the rest of the Great Southwest Prayer Center. The Moravian Prayer Movement was an entryway into Methodism and the modern-day 24-7 prayer movement. The primary features of this room remind us of the Moravians. The first thing that strikes you in this room is the couches facing one another in community. The Moravians were great people of community living together in a community they called Hernnhut. This room contains the fireplace and the Leviticus 6:12 Scripture. This was Count Zinzendorf’s favorite Scripture and symbolized their entire movement: “Let the fire on the altar never go out!” This room contains a prayer station for revival and the pouring out of God’s Spirit. If the Moravians are known for anything, it is for the revival that they experienced and spread… all coming out of what is known as the Moravian Pentecost. This room is available 24-7 for prayer. The Moravians conducted 24-7 prayer for 110 years straight. Lord, we are naming this room “The Moravian Room” because we desperately desire for You to do in our midst what You did amidst the Moravians… and even more! You may obtain the access code into the Moravian Room by submitting an agreement form to us.
Jordan’s Crossing is a small private prayer room and is an invitation by God to take our promised land. It represents the time in the life of God’s people when they will have to rise up and take their promised land. Just as Israel had to face their giants, while God’s hand dealt with each one, so will we--with the promised assurance that God guarantees our victory if we will trust Him. It is in doing this, that we will truly enter into His rest (Joshua 1:13). The primary features of this room are: (1) a sculpture of our Christ with the crown of thorns reminding us of the crucifixion of our flesh that we are invited (with Christ) to put to death; (2) an iron sculpture of “The Lamb’s Rest” depicting our victory in Him. (Galatians 2:20)
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me and I will tell you great and mighty things that you do not know.” This is our invitation to call out to God and then listen to Him speak to us. This room houses our telephone prayer bank 281.398.2GOD from 9am– noon, Monday through Friday. Trained intercessors will answer phones to pray with others, retrieve online prayer requests from whatisgrace.org, write prayer notes to our congregation, as well as make calls through our church directory just to pray with our people. The other hours, this room is available for people to have a private place to pray alone or with others and do Jeremiah 33:3. One of our favorite features of this room is a small wooden writing desk that emulates a prayer style of our Senior Pastor Jim Leggett, listening to God through His Word, prayer, Journaling, and quiet contemplation.
