MISSION: The Gateway Prayer Garden is a place for people to discover God and for committed believers to find their Kingdom assignments.


WELCOME
TO THE

GATEWAY PRAYER GARDEN

A SPECIAL PLACE IS EMERGING IN THE PIKES PEAK REGION OF THE SOUTHERN RANGE OF COLORADO


ABOUT US –

The Gateway Prayer Garden is in the planning stage and will provide a place to commune with God in an aesthetically and artistically pleasing environment.

It will be a meditation garden with benches, sculptures, trees and plants. The Garden will be laid out in the shape of a Cross and will have smaller gardens within the larger that serve segments of our community like the military, students and teachers, immigrants, etc.

People of all faiths are welcome to come and pray.

Prayer Garden Location –
The property is located along the Frontage road of Interstate 25 between Fort Carson on the west, the city of Fountain on the east, and adjacent to Fountain Creek. To access the Garden site, take the 132A exit across from Fort Carson’s Gate 20 and travel south on Bandley Drive. It is 1/4 mile south of Love’s Travel Shops & Country Stores and north of the KOA Campground.

    Christmas NL 2020


    Christmas 2020 and New Year’s Eve

    In this remarkable year of Kingdom of God challenges and opportunities we are rejoicing in His faithfulness. Since Jesus was born in Bethlehem in most humble circumstances, nations have risen and fallen and yet His Kingdom remains unstoppable.

    2020 – A Year of Breakthrough . . .

    Changes on-site both externally and internally reflected in the pictures below.

    You can see our prototype Legacy Prayer Bench under development. The Scripture Tiles will carry powerful messages along the pathway to and from the large future Cross in the Garden. A physical and spiritual inheritance can be created on behalf of a loved one, family member, or even as a statement from your business ministry. Simply visit the Legacy Dedication page HERE to partner with us.

    Improved Amenities . . .

    We now have a set of stairs for improved walking downhill to the Prayer Trails and some of our team were able to meet and pray for the first time this month in our newly remodeled office to be used for hosting visitors and telling the Gateway Prayer Garden story. If you’d like to see a 17-second micro-tour of the facility just click HERE.

    2021 – A Year of Lift-Off . . .

    In the New Year, we look forward to hosting you when we have heat and electricity!

    Plan to come and visit us in 2021 and watch for further details on Facebook and your email.  We are on the move and looking for volunteers to partner with us in a very bright future for the Front Range of Colorado! Links to volunteer opportunities are HERE and our office telephone number is 719-574-0500.

    Looking back and remembering . . .

    As we view 2020 in the rear-view mirror, we’ll see how the Lord has been preparing us for the greatest movement of the Holy Spirit and expansion of His Kingdom in history. His desire is to bless all peoples and bring sons and daughters into His family and make disciples. We get to participate with Him!

    From the Gateway Prayer Garden Team we wish you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas season and a most remarkable 2021 ! “Of the increase of His (Jesus’) government and peace there shall be no end . . .” Isaiah 9:7

    For the Kingdom,

    These are amazing times and we believe full of promise for God’s Kingdom purposes on earth and those include the Prayer Garden!

    GATEWAY PRAYER GARDEN PROVIDES FIRST OPPORTUNITY FOR FRIENDS TO SUPPORT FINANCIALLY . . .

    Two powerful ways to the next level of “Establishing the Garden” . . .

    • The Gateway Prayer Garden is inviting supporters who would like to create a spiritual legacy by providing Legacy Prayer Benches and Legacy Scripture Tiles. The Prayer Benches form the perimeter of pathways in the shape of a ground Cross that every visitor will walk on. They can be donated on behalf of a loved one, a friend, church or para-church organization, school, or even businesses.

    LEGACY PRAYER BENCHES . . .

    SCRIPTURE TILES FOR THE MAIN PATHWAYS . . .

    154 Scripture Tiles will be placed in the pathway surfaces for everyone to read as they walk along. Individuals can also choose the same Scripture in a foreign language if desired. Every individual who would like to make a suggested donation toward a Scripture Tile can choose the Scripture from a list on the website. These Scriptures have been chosen to provide a progression of messages from God’s Word as they walk to and from the large Cross, where there's an opportunity to experience Jesus.

    And here was his challenge to those attending a Men With a Purpose luncheon September 9, 2019: Ted's Charge To Us All

     

    LAST MINUTE CHANGE TO DECEMBER 12TH PLANS TO SUNDAY DECEMBER 13TH . . .

    We had planned on hosting a mini-Grand Opening for this Saturday (12/12) because we’d been given a green light by the city of Fountain to hookup our electricity. They have put yet another obstacle in our path so we are simply inviting those who can come to the modular on-site (we’ll try to get it warm enough!) and pray with us for a final breakthrough this SUNDAY (12/13) from 2-4 PM. Perhaps not coincidentally, are battling locally at the same time a national conflict is occurring in the governmental arena. We’ll be serving hot drinks and snacks while showing you our plans for 2021! Hope you can join us in person!

    For the Kingdom,


    Director

    TED BECKETT WAS CALLED HOME TO BE WITH HIS LORD JESUS . . .

    Ted_Audrey_nl.jpgOn Saturday, October 10th at approximately 3:50 PM, Ted was called home after several weeks of struggling with complications from congestive heart failure.  As his wife Audrey was praying, Father God spoke into her spirit that Ted is one of God’s Generals.  God had need of Ted to work with him to formulate strategies to establish God’s Kingdom on earth.

    A Celebration of Life service was held on Friday, October 16th at the Beckett Event Center and graveside observance at Evergreen Cemetery with military honors. Ted was proud to have served as a Marine!  Many ministry friends and family members shared how Ted influenced their lives and ministries.  An additional celebration of Ted’s life memorial service will occur on November 15th in California.  A video of the memorial service will be made available on-line.

    Ted was a man of bold vision and faith.  His successful real estate development endeavors provided both resources and a platform for him to powerfully demonstrate his Christian faith.  Owning his own business allowed Ted flexibility with his time.  Ted made himself available to be used by God in miraculous ways in more than 70 countries.

    Upon hearing the story of God’s plan to build a Prayer Garden on the land the Becketts owned in Fountain, he and his wife Audrey, made a momentous decision (see link) to gift this $2 million property for a Prayer Garden.  What excited Ted were the Prayer Trails which are now functioning. His story about the Prayer Trails is on-line (see link).

    Pray with us that ALL the Lord has in mind for Gateway Prayer Garden will be faithfully created for His 21st century Kingdom purposes.

    FIRST TIME FOR FRIENDS OF THE GARDEN TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT . . .

    Legacy Prayer Benches Example

    Legacy_Prayer_Benches_nl.jpgIn a 7-0 vote on Tuesday evening, October 6th, the Planning Commission of Fountain, Colorado approved the preliminary plat for Gateway Prayer Garden.  We are awaiting approval of the Final Plat and Development Plan.

    This decision is the next step in allowing us to move ahead with setting the modular building as a construction and security office and then begin the physical layout of more

    than 300 stone blocks that form the perimeter of the ground Cross as Legacy Prayer Benches.  We will begin fabricating 77 Scripture Flagstone Tiles (in both English and a foreign language).

    If you’ve been following our activities over the past three years and concurrent tussle with government, you’re aware that we’ve never asked for financial support.  Now is the time and your opportunity to partner with us to going to another level of bringing the Prayer Garden to reality.

    SAVE THE DATE . . .

    Saturday, December 12th, from 2:00-5:00 PM is the date and time we plan to host you on-site in our newly opened Security/Construction building.  This time is based upon all the remaining approvals finalized from the city of Fountain and a helpful weatherman . . . !

    We hope you can make it!  More details to follow soon and make sure you Like and Follow us on Facebook at GPG Facebook to keep up to date with our activities.

    It’s an exciting time to be serving our King !
