Fire in the Night

Fire in the Night



The Holy Spirit is raising up a generation of people who love God with all their hearts, minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, and impact others. It is not enough to simply hear the call. The yes in the heart must be combined with real preparation for this great journey —through practical instruction, personal encounter, and spiritual impartation.


Fire in the Night is an internship joined to the NightWatch, the prayer watch of a company of people who pray and worship the Lord from midnight to 6am in our Global Prayer Room. We believe that the night belongs to the Lord. Fire in the Night interns cry out in prayer for justice and revival to break in on the earth. Our interns are involved in building a fiery community, outreaches to the lost, and ministry to others in the power of the Holy Spirit.

My favorite part of Fire in the Night was the time I spent in the prayer room. I really encountered Jesus in a life-altering way that put many scattered pieces of my theology, personal experience, and life vision together. I now experience a nearness to God I knew to be possible but had no idea how to sustain.

Kenny Gonzales

In 2019, Kenny Gonzales participated in the Fire in the Night Internship followed by four years at IHOPU in the Forerunner School of Ministry. Although he initially came for the internship, the Lord made it clear to him that he would be here for an extended period. His heart has been stirred with a passion for prayer and missions from a young age, and as IHOPKC’s Fire in the Night director aims to facilitate an environment where interns can devote a significant season of their lives to giving their nights to the Lord while partnering with the Great Commission through worship and prayer. His goal is that interns would grow in confidence in prayer and God’s love for them while deepening their understanding of the knowledge of God.”



What is the aim of the Fire in the Night internship?

Fire in the Night trains up intercessory missionaries. Additionally, our aim is that interns would grow to become confident in God’s love, confident in prayer, and have a value for strengthening corporate prayer meetings.

I attended FITN Track 1 awhile back. Can I apply for Track 2?

Interns may apply to come to Track 2 within twelve months of completing Track 1.

I can come for most of the track but would have to leave early for school. What do I do?

Permission must be received from the Internship Director for anyone arriving late or leaving early.

What are the classes like for Fire in the Night?

The purpose of the Fire in the Night training is more devotional based and meant to fuel your conversation with the Lord in the prayer room. Our classes are based on ongoing discussion and aim to help you grow in confidence in God’s love, prayer, and to give you value for corporate prayer.

What is the difference between Track 1 and Track 2?

Track 1 of FITN 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. Additionally, Track 2 interns participate in outreach and service in the prayer room.

Is it hard to switch to a NightWatch schedule?

Switching to the Nightwatch schedule varies individuals. We are mindful of the challenges of switching to the Nightwatch. We have leaders that have done the Nightwatch for 20+ years and are a resource to help interns walk through different challenges that keeping this schedule may bring.

Is there childcare available for nonresidential families attending Fire in the Night?

Unfortunately, we do not provide child care in FITN. If you need childcare, Simeon and Intro both have age-appropriate children’s tracks that run simultaneously with the program and would be a better fit.

I am single and under 25 but would rather not live in the dorms (or I am over 26 but would rather live in the dorms). Is this a possibility?

We do not make exceptions on the living arrangements but an applicant can submit their request via email and the Director will make the decision.
