House of Prayer

House of Prayer Places where persons assemble to pray, and to receive religious instruction, but where the sacraments are not administered. It is the general name of the Protestant churches in Hungary, and was such in Silesia under the Austrian rule, to distinguish them from the Roman Catholic places of worship. It is also used in Germany to designate the churches of such sects as are not officially recognized, as the Moravians, etc. The synagogues are also called houses of prayer (Isa 46:7). — Pierer, Unic. Lex. s.v. SEE PROSEUCHAE.
