Fasting Prayer Mountain
at Osanri, Kyonggi Province, Korea

About 1 hour by bus from Yoido Full Gospel Church
(See #14 for bus schedule)

Prayer Mountain was established to provide a secluded place of prayer for those who desire a place to be alone with God.  The Yoido Full Gospel Church is happy to welcome our many friends from all over the world to visit us for a period of extended prayer.  There are directional signs to guide you at Prayer Mountain, written in Korean as well as in English.  Prayer Mountain can accommodate guests with either western or Korean-style sleeping facilities.  Individuals as well as groups should make advance reservations although these reservations are "subject to change." Prayer Mountain is privately owned and operated by Yoido Full Gospel Church, and sometimes these accommodations are needed for our ministers' seminars, etc., and these dates may not be known at the time you make reservations.

1.                  Daily Church Services

            There are four services daily in the main sanctuary at Prayer Mountain.  The services are at 06:00, 11:00, 15:00, and 19:00.  Several pastors and many deaconesses minister, counsel, pray for the sick and lead the services with information about fasting and prayer.  These services are ONLY in the Korean language.  If you are bringing a group, however, if you notify us in advance as to what service you will attend, it may be possible to have interpretation available for you.

2.                  Prayer Grottoes

            Over 200 prayer grottoes are open daily for those who desire to spend prolonged periods of time in intercessory prayer.  Anyone can go into a prayer grotto any time during the day without requesting permission and pray as long as one desires.
