Frequently Asked Questions

Partnership with IHOPKC

Do I receive a receipt for my gifts to the International House of Prayer?

Yes. A receipt of your gifts is sent to you in two ways, monthly and annually*. You can choose either electronic or hard-copy receipts. Please contact our office to update your statement preferences. You will receive a monthly electronic receipt via email showing a summary of your gifts from the previous month. If you have given more than $25 in a calendar year and have a US address, we will automatically generate an annual tax-deductible giving statement for you at the close of each year. A hard-copy will be mailed to you by January of the following year. (*Quarterly statements are available upon request.)

Can I change the date of my monthly donation?

Yes, you can change the donation date by contacting our office.

What if my giving statement is incorrect?

If you discover that your gifts are not accurately reflected on your annual tax statement or monthly electronic receipt, email to ask questions about your giving statement.

How do I change the amount of my monthly gift?

The process for changing your monthly giving amount is easiest if you log into your online user portal at For assistance in accessing your donor portal, please contact our office. You can also make changes to your giving account by contacting us directly. Our Partners staff can make changes quickly and efficiently over the phone or by email.

I still have questions not answered here. Can I call or email?

Please email or call us at (816) 763-0200 x.2529

Can I choose a date for my donations to be deducted?

Yes. You can designate the day you want your monthly gift deducted from your credit card when you sign up online. Your credit or debit card will be auto-deducted on the day of your choice, for example, the 15th of every month.

Why do you have to ask for my credit card information again if I have already given it?

In order to keep your credit card information secure, we assign an authorization code for it. This authorization code is stored in our system, but your actual credit card number is not. While it may seem redundant, it maximizes the security of your credit card.

How do International House of Prayer staff members support themselves financially?

Our staff members commit to raise their own financial support through the development of a team of personal partners. They communicate with their home churches, family, and friends, and cast the vision for the raising up of full-time worshipers and intercessors. When possible, we love to help support our full-time missionaries with small missionary stipends. Your gifts make that possible.

Will you automatically debit my bank account or credit card each month?

You can sign up online to have your gift come through as an auto-deduction from your debit or credit card each month. If you don’t have a Partners account, you can simply follow this link to our giving site, where you can activate your Partners account. If you feel more comfortable giving monthly by check, please make your check out to “IHOPKC” and mail to “3535 E. Red Bridge Rd, Kansas City, MO 64137.” Our Partners staff can walk you through an online account set-up if you need help. Contact or (816) 763-0200 x2529.

How much does it cost to operate the prayer room per day?

It costs approximately $13,000 per twenty-four hour period to operate the prayer room. This is for three categories of expenses, and is not indicative of the cost of the rest of the missions base operations or ministries.

Can I give online?

Yes. You can follow this link to our online donations page, or you can read more about ways to donate. On the donations page, you can select a gift—either a one-time gift or a monthly gift—for the amount you feel the Lord has placed on your heart. You can set up your monthly gift to be auto-deducted from your debit or credit card on a specific day each month. You can access your account at any time if you wish to give a one-time gift to other areas of need on the missions base.

Are worship leaders, singers, and musicians supported with any of my donations?

Yes. We provide small stipends to some full-time staff as needed. Our staff build their own financial support team of individuals who partner with them financially and in prayer. As we are able, we help these worshipers and intercessors with small missionary stipends as they pour themselves out day by day before the Lord. As intercessory missionaries, we commit to living a fasted lifestyle of simplicity so that we might give more.

I would like to support the Missions Base. Do all of my donations directly support the Missions Base?

Yes. No matter the amount of your gift, 100 percent of the funds go directly to the International House of Prayer Missions Base. This includes everything from the practical operation of the prayer room to helping support full-time intercessors, worship leaders, singers and musicians, and support staff.

What if I am experiencing constant buffering, stopping, or skipping of the video?

If you are experiencing constant buffering, freezing, and/or stopping while viewing our live stream, here are a few items for you to try:

  • Often shutting down and reopening your browser will help with these problems.
  • These types of problems can be the result of the speed of your internet or perhaps inconsistencies in your internet or wifi connection.  Follow these steps to adjust and lock into a lower bit-rate or screen resolution:
    • Move your cursor over the player to activate the video controls:
    • Click on the gear icon, which is to the right of the volume icon.
    • A menu will appear.  It will most likely be set to “Auto” which means that our player is auto-detecting the speed at which to stream the video.
    • To help with the problems you are experiencing, we suggest choosing the “480” resolution to start with.  This will lock you into this bit-rate.
    • If you continue to have buffering or other issues, you can try the “240” screen resolution.  You can also try to lock into the “720” resolution if you are having good results.  After a bit of trial and error, you can discover what resolution will work best for you.
    • NOTE: It may take up to 60 seconds for the resolution to switch to the one you have selected
