A Place of Prayer, Empowerment and Restoration

Our hearts desire is to glorify God, through worship, evangelism, and discipleship. We endeavor to bring unbelievers to a saving faith in Christ and to develop and equip Christians to be of service in the church and in the world. 


Armed with a pen and a book I could hear the Lord clearly giving instructions about the ministry.  It was a vision that had been carried and protected for years. I remember laughing because I thought it was funny that God wanted to use us to pastor, but I also remember crying because the weight of the call was so heavy and I couldn't shake it.  My pen and notebook became my friend because I could hear the Lord saying write the vision and make it plain…. I remember hearing bring prayer back to my house as I was being given piece by piece instruction of how service was supposed to be. With all of these things written down in my book and year after year of us bringing it before the Lord


On Sunday March 2nd 2014 the doors were open and Empowerment Temple of Prayer Inc. was birthed from a vision to a reality. We held our 1st 11:30am service in the American Legion @ 160 Marvin Avenue in Hempstead.  God has blessed us to move and we are now located at 199-09 Murdock Avenue in St Albans.  On July 25th, 2015 we became members of Full Gospel Holy Temple, where our Overseer is Apostle Herman L Murray Jr. of Dallas Texas.


God has blessed us with his presence every service, and people are being revived, delivered and empowered to move forward in the things of God.  We look forward to seeing what God has in store for the future and believe that greater is coming!

She has an unselfish desire to see men and women of God come into the fullness of what God has called them to do. Her journey with the Lord began at an early age when she received Christ as her personal savior under the late Apostle Johnnie Washington, founder of the Tabernacle of Prayer for all people.  It was during this time that her love for God, His word, and deliverance for Gods people began to grow. She attended the Tabernacle of Prayer Bible College where she grew in the word and the knowledge of God.  It was in bible college that she noticed God had a special call on her life to preach the Gospel.
