100 Scholarships. High Impact. Radical Calling.

Change history while others sleep.

Through a unique partnership between IHOPU and the NightWatch, we are thrilled to offer 100 scholarships—including tuition, room, and board*—to 100 intercessors who seek to burn for Jesus in the night. While the world slumbers, these passionate ones will fuel the lamp of eternal intercession, shifting history by immersing themselves into a radical community of brothers and sisters who seek to model the five wise virgins (Mt. 25:1–13), who remained fully alert through the deepest hours of night to prepare for the coming of the Bridegroom. The IHOPU NightWatch is not for the faint of heart, it's for the wild ones. It will cost you passion, agreement, worship, and prayer. It will cost your regular rhythms and comfortable routines. What it won't cost you, hardly at all, is money. Apply today and learn how you can be part of these brave ones for only $100 a month.

Scripture is clear. The relentlessness of night-and-day prayer isn't a theoretical virtue, but a practical necessity if we want to see speedy justice invade our troubled cities and nations across the earth. Often, however, we focus more easily on the sunshine (i.e. daylight) portion of "night and day," rather than the struggle and glories of midnight intercession. In reality, the prominent battlefield of spirit and soul is after most people are already asleep. Here, in the night, intercessors on the other side of the planet are tuning into Kansas City, looking for guidance and encouragement. Here in the night, we contend for breakthrough, revival, and missions. Here, from midnight to 6am, is an extraordinary community of discipleship and camaraderie unlike anything else you can experience through more conventional training programs. A night watch of prayer with worship and intercession is a strategic weapon in the Lord's full arsenal for releasing glory to turn the tide of darkness and troubles in the earth.

For the past 20 years, young people in our NightWatch here in Kansas City have been both faithful and steadfast to carry the burden of intercession for justice and awakening. As we enter our second decade, we feel the Lord is once again stirring and sending a new, fiery band of 100—young and old!—to take their stand in our NightWatch over the next year. The importance of this cannot be overstated, and it has moved partners and friends to help finance this great mission. Across the nation these partners have generously released significant funding to enable a new generation of burning ones to grow in the Word, contend in prayer for historic breakthrough, and get close-quarters mentoring to both lead and serve the purposes of God in this unusual hour of history.

We invite you to apply to be a part of this radical company—100 burning ones who will respond to the call to join the IHOPU NightWatch and hold the line against darkness. The vast majority of our regular tuition, room, and board cost has been financed to enable you to fully commit and fully begin the journey of a lifetime. Only $100 per month. It's a small price to be part of the secret vanguard that is changing history, one prayer at a time, invisible to man but known to God. Join the next wave who will cry out, "The night belongs to the Lord!" and thereby shape the next 20 years of night-and-day prayer in Kansas City!

We are cultivating intimacy with God through adoring worship and contending for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit for revival in the Church, the salvation of the lost, and the release of God’s justice and purposes in society.

Evangelism and Missions

Effective ministry training empowers us to engage in the Great Commission, win the lost, and work for justice together with the rest of the Body of Christ.


My time in IHOPU was so valuable to me. I found that through the curriculum I developed a deeper love for Jesus and zeal to grow daily in the knowledge of God. Being on the NightWatch while taking classes gave me a unique opportunity to grow in my prayer life by giving me a focused environment to learn and encounter the beauty of God in the night. It is an incredible way to do Bible school.”

Jenna Paez
Director of IHOPU NightWatch

The Lord is worthy to be praised during the night, and it’s been a privilege to do the NightWatch with amazing leaders and students. It has been a season filled with revelation, prophetic encounters, and joy of being a student. I feel like I have grown so much have been equipped to share what I’ve learned with others.”
