Alabaster Prayer House is weekly prayer and worship held at 330 North Main Street Souderton PA 18964. It begins each Tuesday evening at 6:00pm with fellowship and conversation. Worship is from 6:30-8:30pm. All are welcome! The first event will begin August 14, and will be held every Tuesday evening from there on out. The heart of Alabaster comes from the story of the woman pouring oil on Jesus, wiping his feet with her tears, and honoring him with the cost of the oil, a years worth of wages. We want to be a place that welcomes people to come as they are. Alabaster is a consecrated time of worship unto the Father. This is a time set apart to pour out our praise on Papa God; to pour out our cares, our worries, and our burdens on His feet, and let Him fill us with hope, peace, grace, and love. Everyone comes needing something different. Some need peace, others grace, others deliverance, some healing, etc. We believe that God will meet you where you are at in this place of sacred worship. Enter into the throne room, and He is there, flooding you with what you need in that moment. We welcome you to come out just as you are and pour yourself on His feet. We hope to see you August 14th and every Tuesday after.
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment wasted like that? For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they scolded her. But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But you will not always have me. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial. And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.” (Mark 14:3-9).
A Sinful Woman Forgiven
One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” (Luke 7:36-39).
