Is there anyone that can tell me about this institute. I am from Virginia and have a 18 year old niece that is leaving July 1st to attent this "school". We were told at first it is a college to find out is IS NOT an accredited school. I would greatly appreciate any opinions or insight.

The International House of Prayer (IHOP) is not a cult. People come and go freely and there is no "indoctrination" into a mindset that is harmful to an individual (however some non-believers think that Jesus Christ is harmful). This group of Christ followers are committed to living holy lifestyles and 24/7 prayer. This means that a lot of things that are commonly acceptable to much of the world (cursing, getting drunk, pre-marital sex, etc)are avoided by this group. Frankly, holiness and dedication to the Lord can be offensive to some people.

If you really want to know what they are about, why not visit them in person? Or, at a minimum, log on to the prayer room at www.ihop.org .

Blessings to you and your niece.

nuns are brides of christ , and anyone can tell you anything about their religion to suck you in . ever religion says theirs is the true one to christ . jesus said in the last days all religions will be from satan , but his true people will be plucked out of all the churches by god before christ returns . jesus said to follow the bible , not mans ways . the moonies said you could come and go , until they had you and than they brainwashed ya . all churches say they are the ones , i dont fall for it , the bible is gods ways and remember jesus flock was small , jesus even said ..my little flock dont fear the end i will be with you . the bible teaches gods words , no man does , he teaches a mans ways and most will lead you to hell fire in the end . jesus said they will fool the elect if they could .

jesus flock is little ..read the bible and you will see jesus alway says ..my little flock , he never says my large flock . and i will allow no man ways to try and twist itm meaning something else ...it means what itr says little flock or small . god says his ways are not mans ways . jesus was poor and went barefooted or saddles , he wasnt weathly . money is root of all evil . read about the illuminati and the last days and illuminati and the churches . jesus said beware of false teachers

Interesting. I made the second post and this thread and it disappeared. All it said is that you should do a lot more research and gave their website. I didn't say that if it were my niece I'd have the phone number of a good de-programer handy.

Concerned Aunt, my daughter attends IHOP and thoroughly enjoys it. They praise music 24/7. IHOP has a coffee house, book store, worship and praise room. The young people there are wonderful. I have been there frequently myself. Mike Bickle heads IHOP and is one of the most godly men I have ever met. Everything is 100% Bibical. No, it isn't a cult. My daughter has a lot of awesome friends there too. She has known them from college and high school. Some recently left for Africa to help build a school. Wonderful young people. Happy IHOP Mom!

Born in the USA: You have taken scripture out of context. I have never read where Jesus said, "my little flock." The Creator is so very loving and long suffering. I actually can't for the life of me figure out how people ignore His love. And too, it doesn't matter what "religion says" but only the true Word of God. If you want 100% knowledge about what is true, false, happening, and to happen, read the Word of God. If anyone takes glory away from Jesus, they are not of God. Many claim to be Christians because it is effective in turning young and uninformed people off from really getting to know Jesus.

CONCERNED AUNT: Take this young lady there yourself. The moment to step inside the Prayer Room it's evident that the presence of the Lord is there. To see young people of all ages reading their Bibles, listening to the praise music, writing in their journals is an experience beyone what I can express. The Deli/Coffee Hourse has delicious food too. UPDATE: My daughter just called and I told her about my post(s). She is the one that suggested that I encourage you to escort this young lady. As a matter of fact, this discussion has touched me and I'm going there this afternoon!(If you see a bright yellow beetle zipping down I70 towards 71 South ~ that would be me! Happy Father's Day Abba!

@Eric - I'm not sure what you mean about "guards" but there is a receptionist that greets you and there are workers/ushers in the prayer room that facilitate organization. I've also seen security at the larger gatherings but the only thing I've ever seen them do is crowd management. If you are really curious, you can go check it out. They are open 24/7 :)

I haven't driven by there in a long time. Last time I drove by they had guards posted at the entrance to the property. I don't care if they do or not just asking a question.

@Eric - I've never seen guards there so my answer to your question is no. :)

Google the name of their founder, Mike Bickle, read all the articles, and decide on your own. Information always helps me to make up my mind.

It's a whack-nut cult. You sign over all your assets to them and they dribble out enough for you to survive on. If you care for your niece, try to talk her out of it.
