What is the International House of Prayer?
We are an evangelical Christian ministry dedicated to prayer and worship. Our main ministry focus is operating a 24/7 prayer room, located at our Red Bridge Center on East Red Bridge Road. You will find people in the prayer room around the clock. We also have a full-time Bible school and four internships, and are involved in the work of Christian ministry, including evangelism, ministry to the poor, works of compassion and outreach, healing the sick, and making disciples. Our vision is to work in relationship with the wider Body of Christ to engage in the Great Commission, as we seek to walk out the two great commandments to love God and people.

Visitors come from all over the United States and from around the world. Our conferences and events alone draw over 50,000 visitors annually, and many come simply to spend time in the prayer room. View our live, 24/7 prayer room webstream »
