PRAYHoUSe was co-founded by brothers Chika Nwaogu and Chidi Nwaou in 2013. In June of that year Chika felt the urge to help thousands of Christians around the world pray according to God’s Will (1 John 5:14). His aim is to simply help many have confidence in approaching God that He may hear us all and give us all that we ask for as long as we ask it according to His will. He knew that praying according to God’s will means praying Scripture verses, and that was when the idea of PRAYHoUSe was born; a single prayer directory that houses thousands of prayers from the Scriptures, which are in alignment with God’s Will that He may hear us each time we go to Him in prayer.
Chika is a computer programmer. Before PRAYHoUSe, he has been involved in a number of social network startups, including MTV’s TagWorld, in which he re-designed the entire network from scratch, and took it mobile. His brother Chidi co-wrote the HTML, CSS, and JS codes that gave rise to this fast growing prayer directory. Chidi is also a computer programmer, and by degree, he is a physicist, but by love, he daily writes numerous prayers and has posted them here. The founders listed and sold PRAYHoUSe through popular auction site Flippa to focus on their new Facebook-based Christian social network Joining Jesus, with about 2,000 Facebook registered users, which was just launched in February.
Ten Doves Charity is a Texas based Christian non-profit organization. It operates and publishes various websites and publications to help others in need and help lead people to Christ. Stacy Lynne, Executive Director of Ten Doves said “We were very pleased to place the winning bid for this extraordinary website. With 180,000 active facebook and website visitors each month, it will form the core of our online prayer publication and community. It will also enable us to connect loyal visitors of many of our other non-prayer oriented sites to His Word. We are very pleased with what Chidi and Chika have built and they have been professional and quite helpful during the transition period.”
