International House of Prayer (IHOP)

The International House of Prayer (also known by its acronym IHOP or by IHOP–KC) is an evangelical charismatic Christian missions organization based in Kansas City and Grandview, Missouri that focuses on prayer, worship, and evangelism.

Doctrinally, IHOP–KC is evangelical, post-tribulational, and affirms historic premillennialism. IHOP-KC places great importance on the practices of prayer, worship, fasting, and discipleship.

IHOP–KC has a prayer room in Kansas City, Missouri and runs a Bible and ministry school called the International House of Prayer University (IHOPU) in nearby Grandview, Missouri.

IHOP is most well-known for its daily prayer meetings based on its “harp and bowl” worship model that are held 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year since September 19, 1999. While the prayer meeting is the primary ministry of IHOP, the missions organization has also established many different ministries that service its community. These prayer meetings, which are streamed live on the internet and through GOD TV, alternate regularly between music and prayer through all hours of the day and night.

IHOP staff regularly teach on themes that include prayer, worship, the Great Commandment, the Great Commission, eschatology, understanding God’s spiritual purposes for Israel, spiritual gifts and other various evangelical themes.
