International House of Prayer - London

ABOUT US:

The Lord has called us to be a community of believers committed to God, each other, and to establishing a 24/7 house of prayer in London—we gather daily for corporate prayer and worship in the spirit of the tabernacle of David. We are moving more and more into the direction of having night and day continuous prayer and worship in London.

At The International House of Prayer-London, we are committed to prayer, fasting, the Great Commission, and to living as forerunners, preparing the generation of The Lord’s return. We have a mandate to train believers to love Jesus and others wholeheartedly as together we go forth to preach the Word, heal the sick, serve the poor, and proclaim the return of Jesus across the earth.

Night and day prayer with worship is the spinal cord of everything else we do. We are inspired by Amos prophecy: “On that day I will raise up The tabernacle of David , which has fallen down, And repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old” (Amos 9:11- NKJV//Acts 15:16 ). King David who received the revelation of night and day prayer and worship when He bought the Arc to Jerusalem and put it in a tabernacle, organized and paid 4,000 musicians and 288 singers to worship God 24/7 (I Chr.23:1-25:31).

Our vision is to prepare hundreds of full-time intercessory missionaries who, like John the Baptist, live a lifestyle of discipline and devotion to God. As forerunner messengers, their lives and voices cry out, “Prepare the way of the Lord!” We invite you to visit us online and in person. Join with us as we set our hearts to love God, worship Him alone, and dedicate our lives to serving Him without reservation; to demonstrate our love for others in works of service, justice, outreach, and compassion; and to proclaim the return of Jesus.


History of the Prayer Movement:

Around 1000 BC, King David established a tabernacle in Jerusalem and set a precedent of night and day worship before the Lord that continued at various times throughout Israel and Judah's history. Each time this order of worship was reintroduced, spiritual breakthrough, deliverance and military victory followed. Likewise, throughout the centuries, groups in Ireland, Germany, South Korea, Brazil, USA and elsewhere across the globe have established day and night centres of prayer and worship. Following years of preparation in November 2008 the International House of Prayer in London started daily prayers sets with the vision of becoming a nonstop prayer meeting until Jesus returns. At the moment we are faithfully doing 54 hours per week.
