As a lifelong missiologist, I cannot help but think that the landscape of humanity will drastically change when the body of Christ actually becomes a House of Prayer. Mike Bickle has risked it all to convince us of this fact. I heartily recommend this amazing work!
- C. Peter Wagner, Leadership Institute
Mike, you are helping fulfill a desire of God's heart for His presence to be enthroned night and day upon a people that love Him. What you are pioneering at the [HOP Missions Base has huge significance for all who labor to reach the nations. May your lamp of worship and prayer continue to shine!

I am very impressed with the focus on prayer and holiness as the foundation of world missions that I find with Mike Bickle's Missions Base in Kansas City. Would that the whole body of Christ had such zeal!

Spiritual awakening in our nation and world cannot be sustained unless heaven's bowls stay continually filled through worship and intercession. Now more than ever, we need night and day prayer to make a difference! Thanks to Mike Bickle for helping to lead the charge.
- Dutch Sheets, Teacher, Author
Many pastors in the Kansas City area are grateful to God for raising up IHOP-KC in our city. The knowledge that hundreds of intercessors are crying out night and day with fasting for revival in our city strengthens our hearts in the battle. We thank Mike Bickle and the [HOP-KC leaders and stand with them knowing that their labors are resulting in spiritual blessing and unity in the Church in our city.

Endorsements for the Forerunner School of Ministry
The Forerunner School of Ministry is on the cutting edge of ministerial training today. FSM is one of those new wineskins God has been raising up in which impartation and anointing for ministry are just as important as receiving information. Both are offered at FSM and this double barreled approach will help you to become a winner in the kingdom of God.
- Dr. C. Peter Wagner
I am honored to endorse the Forerunner School of Ministry as a place where prayer, humility and passion for Jesus are the highest priority.
- Francis Frangipane, Pastor, Author
The Forerunner School of Ministry faculty is an excellent team of godly men and women; the curriculum is solidly biblical and Christ-honoring; the experience is authentic and practical, as well as inspiring.
- James Ryle, Pastor, Author
Our time at FSM was truly life changing. We were challenged, renewed and restored. We experienced a rich diversity of teaching, wonderful friends and a 24 hour prayer and worship community to under gird it all. There is no school like it on the earth. If you want to go deeper with God – we thoroughly recommend it.
- Paul & Tracey Fillery, England
Congratulations on 7th Anniversary of Night and Day Prayer
As I travel the world, I see the enormous influence of my family at IHOP Kansas City. Never get discouraged by critics. What you are doing is tremendously important. Your obedience to Jesus is contributing to the transformation of the international Body of Christ. You have been called to live out a message that speaks to the very foundations of how we live. Your example has helped to call YWAM and many other movements to repentance and we owe you a great debt of gratitude.
Thank you for your courage!
Thank you for your diligence!
Thank you for your endurance!
You have provoked God's people, world-wide, with an example of the pleasures of knowing God. Your intoxication with the joy of sustained worship is producing in the rest of us a new hunger for the presence of God. Your sustained furnace of intercession is hastening the birth of breakthroughs long hoped for.
May God bless your faithful leadership team and the whole community that supports you. I personally came to shelter under your branches years ago and I will always return to stand in your beloved company.
-John Dawson, International President of YWAM
Congratulations to Mike Bickle and the IHOP ministry for going for over seven years now day and night twenty-four hour prayer and worship. If that would have been done a couple thousand years ago I believe you would have made it into the Old Testament. I mean just think how that would read. Day and night prayer, this group went day and night before the Lord worshipping Him, praying and interceding for God’s people for seven years. This is an incredible feat and an incredible accomplishment and we appreciate what you are doing so much. Keep it up. We are all benefiting from it. We appreciate the fire and zeal that this has helped impart I believe to the whole Body of Christ in some way. It is worth what you are doing.
- Rick Joyner, Morningstar Ministries
I am so glad that I have been invited to be among those who are extending greetings to you Mike and the whole team there at the international house of prayer in the Kansas City area on this seventh anniversary since you have established this intercessory ministry. Mike, thank you. The name Mike Bickle becomes synonymous with passion for intercession. There has never been a time in our world’s history that has been more needful. Your sensitivity to the call of God upon you and your willingness to lay yourself out unto that ministry means so much to all of us. Thank you Mike, God bless you. Keep the fire burning. We need the glow and the glory that comes from the ministry that goes on there.
- Jack Hayford, Living Way Ministries
I want to say hello and send my blessings to Mike and Diane and all of our friends at IHOP Kansas City. I also want to just thank you. You have had a lot of influence on me personally and almost everyone on our staff. You have a calling in these End-Times to be influential even to the second coming of Jesus. We are excited to be partners together with you as we all look forward to the soon coming of our wonderful King and Messiah, Yeshua.
- Asher Intrater, Revive Israel
Happy anniversary IHOP, I am so grateful for what you all are doing and what you are doing for the whole church. Mike you are one of the greatest friends I have ever had. I so appreciate twenty years of friendship and walking with you and Diane, God bless you and have a great anniversary.
- Jack Deere, Wellspring Church
Hi Mike and IHOP staff and friends. I am pastor Grace, the senior pastor of Forerunner Christian Church in the San-Francisco area. On behalf of my church I want to thank you for being so faithful to God’s calling. Because of that much revelation has been brought to us. Through our website and training center many Chinese churches and leaders also benefit. On this special day I would like to say, happy birthday IHOP. Your effort is not in vain. We love you, thank you and bless you in the name of Jesus.
- Pastor Grace Chiang, Forerunner Christian Church
Congratulations IHOP on seven years. My wife Rachel and I and our kids Samuel and Emma are so thankful for you and what you all are doing in leading an entire generation and really every generation in our time into what Nouwen called the only necessary thing, prayer. I remember when I was a young man, just a teenager reading this, Andrew Murray said that Jesus never taught His disciples how to preach but He only taught them how to pray. I believe that is what you are doing for a lot of people including myself as you are teaching us about the only necessary thing. So thank you and congratulations.
- Jason Upton, Key of David
Hello Mike and IHOP, we love you guys. Happy birthday or happy anniversary or something like that of seven years of day and night prayer. Amazing, you are creating a prayer culture all over the world and a reformation of prayer that I believe only heaven will be able to tell really what has broken through because of what you do. Keep on going. You are going to help the rest of us. In many ways you made our dreams come true out of IHOP. Thank God for you and God bless.
- Lou Engle, JHOP & The Call
Hi this is Rick Ridings coming to you from Jerusalem and I just wanted to say a special happy anniversary to all of you at the house of prayer in Kansas City. We want you to know that you have stood by us in an amazing way in your prayers and your encouragement. Even as we are filming this my son-in-law Adam just went into Lebanon to be involved with the combat there. It was so great receiving an email saying that you were all praying together for him there. We want you to know that we are very thankful for you all. Mike I want to say to you what an inspiration you are to me as you follow so hard after the Lord and just your heart to see the house of prayer multiplied all over the world. We believe it will be and we are glad to stand together with the house of prayer in Kansas City for God’s purposes in these last days.
- Rick Ridings, Succat Hallel
Shalom, Mike and the whole family at IHOP in Kansas City. We are so grateful that you have pioneered this amazing work. We look to you here for inspiration at the Pavilion Prayer Tower. We thank you for those seven years of faithful prayer and praise unto the Lord. We also want to thank you for the support you give to the nation of Israel. I have been at your Israel Mandate Conference and I see the love and the passion you have for God’s chosen people, Israel. So we celebrate with you today. We want to say thank you, God bless you, keep it up and we will keep going with you until the end.
- Wayne Hilsden, Pavilion Prayer Tower
This is Robert Stearns with Eagles Wings Ministry and on behalf of my wife Anna and our whole team extending to you our love, our appreciation for your leadership in the body of Christ in this hour. Words are not sufficient to express the sense of deep friendship, appreciation and the way that we rally to the cry that God has put in your hearts. We thank God for you deeply that you have raised up a standard in the nations of the earth in this hour for what it means to be watchmen on the walls, for what it means to never let the fire on the altar go out, for what it means to rebuild the tabernacle of David. From the bottom of our heart your lives are changing our lives and changing lives all around the world.
- Robert Stearns, Eagles Wings Ministry
Let me take this occasion to congratulate you and the entire IHOP family on persevering in the place of prayer for seven years. For the last month or two I have buried in viewing thousands and thousands of images of global crisis in this day and I am persuaded more than ever before that we need the kind of anchors that you provide there at IHOP in pressing in to seek the face of the Lord. I have a scripture that I wanted to pass onto you. It is from Ps. 145. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise. His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another. They will speak of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty. I will meditate on Your wonderful works. Thank you Mike and IHOP for making it easier for thousands of people around the world to do just that.
- George Otis Jr., Sentinel Group
In thinking about and praying about what to say to you in this message, I was reminded of Prov. 4:18, the path of the righteous is like the shining sun that gets brighter and brighter until the full light of day. To fully understand that verse you need only to look at Mike and Diane Bickle. Look at their lives, that verse explains that our lives unfold sequentially. If we are walking in intimacy with God our lives get brighter and brighter until the full light of day and you can see more and more clearly God’s call on your life. When you consider that the Bickle’s had a dynamic large church that was doing wonderful things and yet they were able to hear God call them to something more obscure and then they tended to it until it has become an international house of prayer. What greater calling than to encourage the saints to pray. I salute and honor this ministry, this leadership and do you know what that verse promises? The best is yet to come. You all are just early on. Stay the course and go the distance to fulfill God’s call on your life.
- Coach Bill McCartney, Road to Jerusalem Ministries
In that partnership that God has given to the various ministries for each other, He has allowed us in Youth With a Mission to enjoy the benefits of the prayers of IHOP as it has become affectionately known. Through Mike Bickle’s ministry and life and through the lives of so many others who have joined him the power of God has flown through our ministries and as a result we have seen more accomplished for the kingdom of God than we could ever do with out that prayer backing. I want to say to you thank you for your faithfulness, thank you for your endurance, thank you for your diligence, thank you for your depth as you have prayed for the ministry of Youth With a Mission were we are scattered in every country of the world at least part time and then 173 countries full time. The attacks are vicious and sometimes we are just amazed at what the enemy dreams up for he is the father of all lies but when we see God’s people praying and the truth starting to break through then we begin to see that veil of darkness driven back by the light of the love of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
