Genesis 2 says that God set Adam in the Garden in Eden to "tend and keep" it. Contrary to our modern assumption, God created Adam with much more than farming in mind. Adam's primary created purpose was that of a priest - ministering to God in a sanctuary.

Rightly understanding Adam as the model for all of humanity's created purpose as priests brings clarity to the reason for the increase of night and day prayer across the globe today.

From the assimilation of God into our worldview to the purpose of our worship, Josh develops and traces this biblical foundation established...

God's own glorification - simply being praised and adored by the works of His hands - is His supreme purpose in all of creation. Humanity was created to serve this purpose. Though we have departed from this purpose, God is fiercely committed to His glory and will not allow anything else to be seen as more deserving of honor and allegiance than Himself.

In light of God's plan to put His glory on display through His Son Jesus, we can better evaluate the reason for a groundswell of night and day prayer across the earth today. Without this foundational understanding, the call to...

In this teaching, IHOPU instructor Stephen Venable lays out the biblical reasons for a crescendo of worship and prayer at the end of the age. He describes how God has chosen to reveal His unique identity to the whole world, resulting in incessant, perpetual adoration of Jesus the Messiah as God Himself. In other words, the Lord is orchestrating a global worship movement that will culminate with the worship of God on earth as it is in heaven.

The fact that the concept of a global worship movement is often met with such indifference reveals how deeply disconnected we are from God’...

In this teaching, Stephen Venable (instructor and dean at IHOPU) relates the movement of 24/7 prayer and worship to the worth of Jesus as the one who is most deserving of all of our adoration and praise all of the time. Worship is not a means to an end, it is the end. Before there were any needs that had to be met, bodies to be healed, or injustices to be ended, the beauty of the LORD warranted the incessant cries of the seraphim and the worship of the first man, Adam. God first and foremost made us to serve Him, not the other way around.

In seeking to biblically...

In this teaching, Matt Candler develops the theme of worship at the end of the age that culminates in the singing of the "new song". More than a "new sound" or single song, Matt lays out the biblical evidence for the theme of the "new song" mentioned by many passages as it relates to the second coming of Christ, the day of the LORD, and the restoration of all things.

If you are an intercessor, musician, or singer and want to receive even more biblical clarity on what you are called to, I'd highly recommend this teaching.

In this teaching, IHOPU dean Stephen Venable gives the foundational biblical principles and solid reason for the seemingly spontaneous gatherings of believers all across the world to engage in unceasing prayer and worship. Steven explains that because history has a purposeful end where all of creation acknowledges that Jesus is God and He alone has the preeminence, the worship and prayer movement must be looked at in that light.

I'd highly recommend this teaching for anyone wanting to gain biblical perspective on how the Lord is moving on the earth today. The 24/7 prayer...

Prayer and worship is being raised up all across the earth today in small towns and big cities - it is unprecedented, because it's happening totally separate from any organization, franchise, or effort of man. The Lord is pouring out a grace to pray, fast, and worship unlike any time in history.

This 5-page handout details why the Lord is raising up prayer and worship across the earth. God's reason is not arbitrary or random, but it's unto the ultimate purpose of exalting His name and vindicating the person of Jesus, making His true identity known across the entire earth.
