Running Our Race

On a recent ministry trip, I (Theresa) had the opportunity to minister at a women’s retreat. I talked about what we can do when we feel stuck in our walks with God or we find ourselves in a dry season, where we know we should want to read our Word and pray, but have no […]

Unplugged TV Sets

Jonathan Baldwin

In 1983, a prophecy was given about a 24/7 global prayer and worship movement. This included a prophecy about believers in China in rice paddy fields watching the singers and musicians in Kansas City on ‘unplugged TV sets’. It was such a crazy prophecy at that time and no one thought it possible since things […]

The Moral Outcry

Jonathan Baldwin

Sign the petition. Spread the word. End abortion. We are calling for 1 million people to petition the Supreme Court to end abortion. Since 1973, over 60 million babies have been killed by abortion. It’s time for justice to roll down like mighty waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. It’s time for the Supreme […]

From the Ends of the Hear We Hear Songs

Recently, Theresa had the opportunity to help a friend and co-worker write a book that is coming out soon about his journey from prayer to doing justice in the nations of the earth.

A Prayer Meeting Where a Young Man Can Find Deliverance

Jonathan Baldwin

In the 80s God spoke in powerful ways to Mike Bickle, the man who started IHOPKC, about a ministry of 24/7 prayer.
