In about six months, the church entered an agreement with Pastor Burnside Miller of the Unitarian Church in Fort Myers. He agreed to allow the church to worship in their building after their Sunday service for three hours a week. We also were allowed to conduct a weeknight Bible class. This was not the most ideal situation, but we thanked God and began a building fund drive. We operated in this manner until about 1992, when the Unitarian Church was bought by a local hospital, Lee Memorial Hospital, which planned to convert the church into a daycare facility for employees. As a result, we had to relocate once again.
By this point, the building fund drive had been successful and we were searching for a building that suited our needs and budget. We rented a little building in the inner city area of Fort Myers, in a subdivision called Harlem Lakes, located about 1.5 miles from our first location in Michigan Links Housing Projects. Soon, we acquired a church directly across the street from the building we were renting, an old church at 2112 Mitchell Court, which had been stricken by fire.
With the help of God and the brothers of the church, the building was remodeled and ready for worship by 1993. This is our current place of worship. We have fully paid for it and have acquired several lots adjoining to our property. We invite you to become a part of the church today and a piece of its history tomorrow.
After twenty-nine years, House of Prayer is thriving and is in the process of building a new edifice. Though she was called on to glory by the Lord on July 19, 2008, the words of Pastor Davis still encourage her flock: "God really does answer prayer and he will keep every promise made to His children.”
