Night and Day Prayer and Worship
In 1999 God reestablished something on earth that has happened only a few times in it’s entire history: night and day prayer and worship! King David started this a few thousand years ago out of a desire to see God glorified night and day. Several kings in the history of the Israelites reinstated night and day prayer and several communities since Christ have sustained 24/7 prayer and worship for decades at a time.
In 1999 Mike Bickle (IHOP-KC) and Pete Greig (24/7 Europe) renewed this ancient institution and made it a reality in the U.S.A. and Europe. These movements, unaware of one another, exploded into existence simultaneously. You can view a detailed history of the prayer movement here.
IHOP Kansas City
The ministry that Mike Bickle began in 1999 has become an international training center for prayer and worship. The resources available on ihopkc.org and mikebickle.org are amazing, ranging from a free high quality livestream of the prayer room, a room dedicated to prayer and worship with continuous 2 hour prayer and worship sets, and archived teachings to paid online courses, studies, and materials.
These resources can be helpful in your daily life and I highly recommend them. For prayer time or worship time you can pull up the prayer room lifestream or archived prayer and worship sets on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. For study you can search ihopkc.org or mikebickle.org for themed studies, conference sessions, or entire book studies.
It Gets Better
IHOP-KC also livestreams their Friday and Saturday night services. These services begin and end with about and hour of worship with a teaching from the IHOP-KC staff in between.
For those looking to dedicate a season of their lives to intense Bible study and prayer can join one of the several internships offered. Many of the internships are geared toward certain age groups or life seasons. For those with less time but with the desire to experience an internship can join an 8 day IHOP Immerse group or a Weekend at IHOP group.
Last But Not Least
For those with a heart for missions and other languages and cultures, you can visit the All Nations Prayer Room page and join a live or archived prayer and worship set in multiple languages!
