About Us

To loose the chains of injustice (Isa. 58:6)

Fasting before God, tearing our hearts, and crying out to Yahweh to return to Him, the God who created mankind will heal all our diseases. Fasting and prayer are the secrets to curing both spiritual and physical ailments.

Osanri Prayer Mountain is...

A garden of grace and miracles where people from around the world gather, is always open to those who wish to fast and pray. It is an interdenominational garden of prayer, established in 1973.

Since its establishment, many believers have come to fast and pray through the night, experiencing the gifts of the Holy Spirit such as speaking in tongues and healing grace. The number of believers visiting the prayer mountain has continuously increased, leading to the construction and expansion of the temple and its auxiliary facilities.

In 1978, a sanctuary and accommodations capable of hosting 5,000 worshippers were established. By September 1982, a grand sanctuary with a capacity for 10,000 people and two additional sanctuaries for 5,000 worshippers to use for worship and accommodations were completed. Currently, the number of these additional sanctuaries has expanded to 11 buildings, allowing a total of 20,000 worshippers to worship simultaneously.

The Prayer Mountain is fully equipped with modern accommodations such as the House of Sarang(Love) and prayer caves for individual prayer, along with facilities like a welfare hall. The Prayer Mountain hosts 1,512 speakers annually, conducting services four times a day, including the Friday overnight service, 365 days a year. Among these, special revival meetings organized by interdenominational speakers take place every week from Monday to Friday.

During worship services every Tuesday and Thursday, all ministers perform the laying on of hands. With passionate praise led by gospel singers at every service, attendees experience a time of fullness of the Holy Spirit and spiritual gifts. Relying on the power of the Word and the Holy Spirit, we provide three daily counseling and prayer sessions 365 days a year to assist those who come to the prayer mountain suffering from various diseases of spirit, soul, and body.

The Prayer Mountain is sought after by believers from various denominations, with 40% from the Presbyterian Church, 36% from the Yoido Full Gospel Church, and the remaining 24% comprising Methodists, Holiness, Baptists, and other denominations. The number of international visitors is increasing daily, with over 10,000 foreign believers visiting each year to fervently pray.

The Friday Night devotional service is a time of grace, inviting pastors who have found success in ministry from across the nation, and ensuring a fervent service through the laying on of hands by all ministers for the congregation. Additionally, to foster a sense of unity with the Yoido Main Sanctuary, the Wednesday second service and Sunday second service are conducted via live video link. For the convenience of those visiting the Prayer Mountain, a shuttle bus runs every hour, 365 days a year, between Yoido, Seoul and the Prayer Mountain
