The center houses 70 rooms in the heart of the inner city of Albany and is committed to 24 hour, 7 day per week prayer in what is dubbed "the prayer furnace."

Justice House of Prayer (JHOP) The Justice House of Prayer (JHOP) exists to raise up a house of prayer to contend with every other house that challenges the Lordship and supremacy of Christ over all affairs. Birthed out of theCall prayer assemblies and theCause prayer initiative, the Justice House of Prayer is a community of young and old who seek to lift a continuous (24/7) cry of worship and intercession for and out of our nation’s capitol. The primary motivation of all that is done at JHOP is to pour out our extravagant love and devotion to Jesus Christ who is worthy of all praise and adoration. At the same time, a unique and defining characteristic of JHOP is governmental intercession as delineated by the 1 Timothy 2 mandate. True reformation, revival, and revolution in our nation will only be born out of a spiritual shift and this can only occur when we have altered the spiritual atmosphere and power structure through sustained prayer and fasting. And to that end, JHOP was established.

This sight highlights a major evangelism initiative of Mission America -- a growing coalition of 386 Christian leaders from seventy-two denominations, over 300 churches and para-church ministries, and fifty-six ministry networks.

The initiative is born of prayer and maintains that we should always "talk to God about our neighbors before we talk to our neighbors about God." The strategy is summed up in three words: prayer, care, share. That is, pray for those in your sphere of influence by name, care for their needs, and share the gospel with them in appropriate ways.
