Here’s a little background for you… The idea of the “Prophet’s Chamber” came from the story of the Shunamite woman in II Kings 4:8-10. This woman, whose name was not provided, wanted to take care of the man of God, Elisha, and so she and her husband made a little room off the side of their house. The Bible explained what the room was like: a bed, a table, a candlestick, a little stool. The Shunamite woman wanted to be a blessing and, because of her example, ministers are reaping from her kindness thousands of years later. Isn’t that pretty awesome?
Here’s the story directly from the Bible:
"And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread. And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually. Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither." II Kings 4:8-10
