Fire in the Night

Notice: In the spirit of Romans 13:1, IHOPKC recently closed all facilities to the public. Federal and local governments have restricted gatherings to groups of 10 per room to combat COVID-19. Being committed to caring for our community and continuing to submit ourselves to our governing authorities, we are deferring all IHOPKC internships until these restrictions are lifted.

Fire in the Night is the internship joined to the NightWatch, the faithful musicians and intercessors who cover the hours of midnight to 6am in the prayer room. We believe that the night belongs to the Lord. While most people are sleeping and while many deeds of darkness are committed, Fire in the Night interns cry out in prayer for justice and revival to break in on the earth, and are involved in outreaches and ministering to others in the power of the Holy Spirit.

This program runs through the night. Interns are in the prayer room from midnight to 6am. Sleep schedule is adjusted.

Two tracks are offered, but Track 2 is optional. Track 1 is an introduction to cultivating a lifestyle of prayer and growing in the knowledge of God. Track 2 continues these themes with the added component of growing in the understanding of God’s plans and purposes as seen in His Word.
