The NightWatch at the International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) covers the hours from midnight to 6:00am. Within a ministry that runs twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, a committed group of people are needed to labor through the night hours.
Because of the lifestyle change the NightWatch schedule requires, a unique company of intercessors has emerged within the IHOPKC family. These intercessors, singers, and musicians have rearranged their whole lives in order to carry the torch of intercession through the night hours.
A typical day in the life of a NightWatch intercessor begins at 11:00pm and ends at 3:00pm. The NightWatch is a diverse group of full- and part-time staff, marketplace workers, interns, and students from all stages of life, from single young adults to families with children.
The NightWatch mandate is found in Psalm 134: “Behold, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, who by night stand in the house of the LORD! Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. The LORD who made heaven and earth bless you from Zion!”
