About Fire in the Night

The Holy Spirit is raising up a generation 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.

An internship joined to the NightWatch

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. While each internship has a distinctive age limit, length, and schedule, they all share the same central training components.

Fire in the Night Internship

Meet the Directors

“We met at IHOPKC. We came separately out of a desire to spend a season, set apart, to seek the Lord in a unique and focused way. Our time with Fire In the Night internship has refreshed us and introduced us to a lifestyle of prayer and mission that we want to spend the rest of our lives doing. We want interns to come and spend a season in the Nightwatch, as we behold and bless the Lord together. We want interns to grow confident in Gods love, confident in prayer. We want interns to grow in their value for corporate prayer and help us build a 24/7 house of prayer.” –Jason & Jenna

Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
