Come Pray at the Metro Tower

Bring Your Group to the Prayer Tower

Arrangements can be made for your group to pray for our city from the vantage point of 19 stories above street level.  This room has been used by youth groups, church staffs, Christian sororities and fraternities, small congregations, women's prayer groups and individuals.  There is no charge for this usage but arrangements do need to be made especially for evening and weekend times.  The fire marshal has recently rated this room's capacity at 49.

Curbside parking needs to be used during office hours, rather than the adjacent parking lots.  Within a block of the building are ample one-hour, two-hour and time-unlimited parking places.  Before and after business hours, curbside and parking lot parking are both unrestricted and available.

This room is a special gift of God - our own "high place" to retreat to for prayer.  This building also has a spiritual heritage: Built as the "Great Plains Life Building," damaged in the 1970 tornado and stood condemned for several years, reinforced and reopened for business, many believe that it has been preserved for a time such as this for this assignment as Lubbock's high place of prayer - a place from which eternal life is now it's purpose.

There are a few guidelines for groups in order to insure that this facility remains available for prayer.

You may arrange for your prayer group to come pray at the “Prayer Tower” by contacting Steve at 749-PRAY, or

"On your walls, O Jerusalem (Lubbock?), I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent.  You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves; And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem (Lubbock?) a praise in the earth."  Isaiah 62:6 (parentheses added)
