School of Intimacy and Love
IHOP-LI Internship
And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty." Matthew 13:23 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. James 5:7-8

IHOP-LI values the wisdom of those who have gone before us; laboring over the years to build a Global House of Prayer. We have reaped the benefit of the hard work carved out by others by adopting many aspects of those models as our own (e.g. contemplative prayer, Perpetual Adoration, prophetic worship, the Harp and Bowl model of intercession). Thank you all!! We love and honor you… Each House of Prayer has it’s own distinctive based upon history, influence and assignment. • • • Because we have a unique history, our family story differs from others. Because we have a unique set of influences, our values in ministry reflect what we have reaped from those relationships and events. Because of our unique assignment, our expression of mission is tailored to the region we serve.

All of this to say that although you may or may not have served in another House of Prayer, the introduction to IHOP-LI is a unique internship based upon culture-specific criteria. Regardless of your purposes in taking this internship, we honestly look forward to serving you in deep love during this time you have set aside before the Lord. Whether you have taken this internship as a sabbatical to immerse yourself in worship and prayer before the Lord, Jesus Christ or as a pre-cursor to becoming a staff member, you are of equal and dearest value to us. We consider this time with you both a privilege and honor.

Goal of Internship
Someone once said, “You cannot really introduce someone to the King unless you are willing to travel far into the Kingdom.” This internship is meant to equip/strengthen you to do exactly that. Our primary intent is to help you discover more of King Jesus in the light of His first and second commandments: To love the Lord, your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself…. Good Soil…
