A New Evangelical Monasticism
A Total, Bible-based, Christ-centered, Born-again Evangelical Monastic Lifestyle
The Prayer Foundation Knights of Prayer Monastic Order was founded in March of 1999 as the original, very first 100% born-again Christian monastic Order in the world.
You can become a Lay Monk with our Knights of Prayer Monastic Order while remaining in your own home, job, career, life. You can do so whether you are single, married, male or female.
Historically, this has been known as "Oblate" status. We are the first Christian Religious Order to give full Lay Monk Status to our "Oblates."
Your Goals must be to Grow in Christ, to Become a Man or Woman of Prayer...to Draw Closer to God, that He might Draw Closer to You
"See the incense of the Lords intercession and your prayer will rise up with and in His prayer."
New Monks for the New Millennium!
Note: It takes two years to attain "Full" Lay Monk Status, but you receive "Postulant" Monk status immediately, progressing to "Novice" level status in your second year.
