Who We Are
If you walk into the International House of Prayer Northwest in Federal Way, Washington, you enter into an emerging intercessory ministry associated with the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, since September 19, 1999, the fires of intercession have been burning in the Kansas City base, and this fire is spreading rapidly to the cities of our nation. You will find teams of young adults in their teens and 20s, as well as older folks like me, ministering to the Lord in the prayer room, singing well-known worship songs, creating spontaneous songs directly from the Scriptures, and weaving short, spoken prayers with the phrases of the songs. Ministering from a perspective of intimacy, they give expression to the longing in their souls to know God and be known by Him.
Young People Giving Their Lives to Prayer
These young people are part of an emerging community of intercessory missionaries who are giving their lives to the work of prayer. They are declaring the purposes of God over the cities and nations of the earth and seeking to understand and agree with His intentions for the remaining years of human history.
