Many young adult’s lives are changed every three months as they go through our Fire in the Night Internship. These young adults are immersed in the prayer room six hours a night, six days a week. They also receive teaching several hours a week and are involved in various mission-related activities around the IHOP Missions Base. Between these teaching times, and the hours a week in the prayer room were many of them hear the voice of the Lord, their lives are completely turned around and a vision is formed in their hearts to live a life that is worthy of the calling of Christ (2 Thes. 1:11). Interns come from all over the United States and the world from countries such as New Zealand, Canada, England, Egypt, Germany, and the Netherlands.
Interview with Wendy Miller of New Zealand
Fire in the Night Alumni
What were you doing before Fire in the Night?
I was working in New Zealand at a market research company and my church in the areas of youth, worship and prayer.
How did FITN impact your walk with God?
It helped me to realize that I wasn’t the only person who had a heart to minister to the Lord for long hours. I found a new confidence in my walk with the Lord–knowing He delighted in me and enjoyed my worship–and it gave me a vision to live the life of an intercessory missionary.
What impact do you believe you made during Fire in the Night?
Firstly, I believe I have moved the heart of God. I believe that as I have prayed people’s lives have been changed, those I know and those I don’t. I believe the Lord has extended mercy to the nations to give us a chance to repent.
What is your vision for the future?
I want to do this for the rest of my life: I want to fast, pray and go deep in the Word all the days of my life–preferably in the night–for as long as I can. I want to always be a part of the prayer movement in one way or another, knowing that my involvement can be dependant on different natural seasons in life (i.e.-A mother of a newborn can’t really spend three hours deeply studying Jeremiah but she can keep a “running dialogue” with the Lord on the inside!
Wendy Miller now serves as a full-time intercessory missionary on the Night Watch. She serves as a prayer leader, musician, singer, and as a Fire in the Night core leader helping lead a small group of Fire in the Night interns. If you would like to hear about how you can be a part of her ministry contact me and I will get you in touch with her.
If you know of any young adults that are hungry for the Lord and want their lives to be impacted with a passion for Jesus, maybe Fire in the Night is the answer. Please contact me if you would like to receive some information.
South Dakota Proposing New Bill Outlawing Abortion
South Dakota legislatures are proposing a new bill that would make abortion illegal except for in the cases of rape, incest, or the physical health of the mother (Southern Baptist Convention Press). Last year, they were unsuccessful in passing a bill outlawing all abortions. Many in the Pro-LIFE movement feel like this bill might have more success. Utah has also proposed similar bills. Please join us in praying for these states as they seek to take a stand for righteousness and justice for the unborn.
