WATCH LIVE: Mike Bickle, IHOPKC Leadership Discuss What God Is Saying About COVID-19

IHOPKC founder Mike Bickle, along with other leaders of the 24-hour prayer ministry, go live today to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and what God is saying about it.

Dean Briggs hosts the discussion with Bickle, Daniel Lim, Stuart Greaves and Dana Candler at 9 a.m. CT.

"We will be discussing the current global climate and what we feel the Lord is saying our response should be in this hour," an IHOPKC newsletter says.

Watch the discussion live in this article.

As of March 17, IHOPKC is closed to the public due to the COVID-10 pandemic. The ministry will continue to pray and worship and will make the service available to the public via live stream.

In an open letter, Bickle said:

Our commitment before the Lord is for the "fire on the altar" to never go out (Lev. 6:13, NKJV). In 1999, we began 24/7 prayer with worship, and in the grace of God, it shall continue until the Lord returns. This is not only a sober corporate mandate; it is a deeply personal assignment which our staff holds dear in their hearts. If I could frame this in a military context, when various circumstances shift the complexion of a battle, wise leadership does not automatically retreat; they reconfigure and reassess. In America, we have not had to face a pandemic scenario in the last decade, and even then, lifestyles were different. So we are rapidly adapting and realizing the kindness of God to give us a trial run to develop better systems and more flexibility for the days ahead. Don't mistake me, we view the coronavirus as a real threat, but we know from Scripture that these sorts of scenarios will definitely increase in intensity as the Day of the Lord draws near.

In light of this, he said, the ministry is balancing multiple tensions right now: "(1) our heavenly mandate for 24/7 prayer with worship; (2) social responsibility in a time of public fear and government restrictions and (3) care for our community, especially the most vulnerable."
