Bratislava's castle

April 22-24, 2013: We started this trip with a big youth prayer event that was streamed on internet live for young people in Slovakia. We got to share 15 mins there. That was a surprise !

Then we had 2 days of teaching focusing a lot on the identity of the nations. We got a good explanation of the Slovakian identity. In those days, one of the most corrupt men in the government, a party leader, was kicked out by his own party. Another surprise !

April 28-29: We were part of a church service in the morning, where the spiritual history of Bratislava was the teaching. In the afternoon, we started the intercession from the castle. About 40 people were split up in 8 groups praying in different places in the city. There were many good reports in the evening in the worship and prayer meeting.

April 29th, we were invited to the parliament by a member of parliament. He shared his conversion to Jesus, the situation in the parliament and different prayer points for him and the government. He spend 2 hours with us. We had a powerful time of prayer there, all on our knees at one time. There were about 35 of us. The Slovakian Christians were very much encouraged by this and it gave them faith to get more involved in prayer for the authorities.

In the afternoon, we went to the Devin castle 20km away. This is a place of significance since the authorities were established there some time in history and the first church in the area was started there. It has also been a place full of bloodshed, and it’s definitely a place for the church to return to. The reports in the evening were again very positive and we left Bratislava thanking God for what we could do together.

Austrian Parliament

April 30 – May 2, 2013: Arriving in Vienna in the afternoon, we started with the spiritual history of the city to help us understand it. Rich history ! And we discovered that in 1913 Hitler, Trotsky, Tito, Stalin and Freud all lived in the city at the same time. What was it in city that inspired them for so much evil ? How is it possible ?

Next morning we heard about the rich Jewish history as well. That became the focus of one prayer team in the afternoon. We realized that many had prayed for the same things before and we could feel God is about to answer those prayers. The other team prayed for the church in different places with a powerful time in the St.Stephan’s cathedral. They found a place in a side chapel were they didn’t see time before 45 mins were gone by. Refreshing !

After that we joined a 8 hours worship day over the city, for one hour, and the day was over. Time flies with prayer in the cities.

The last day, we prayed at the Helten platz (the Hero’s place) where Hitler had spoken to 100 000 people when he took over Austria. We prayed for a new voice to speak over the city and the nation. Then we linked those prayers with the government as we went there afterwards declaring Ps 24 and Ps 29 in particular . May the King of Glory enter in !

Praying in a deputy's officeApril 25-26, 2013: The time in Budapest was intense. We arrived there and went straight into the parliament after some briefing. There were about 30 of us. We had some prayer and worship in a mp’s office. For many of the Hungarians, that was a step forward and a real encouragement.

The second day, we visited the main Jewish quarter and prayed there in the morning. Quite a few Christians are reaching out to the Jews. Budapest has always had a rich Jewish history, so this is really important.

Praying about the Budapest CrownIn the afternoon we prayed on a bridge with new freemason obelisks and a copy of a crown which is about to become an idol of the nation according to the pastors. The real crown is now in the parliament.The first king of the nation was crowned with it. Just recently it was put there after have been in a museum for centuries. Some declarations in the law has been made about the crown having authority over the government and is almost becoming sacred. We had powerful prayers concerning this crown and freemasons lifting t up to an abnormal position.

After that, we went up to Buda castle on the other side of the Danube where we were speaking and prophesying over Budapest. We finished the time in Budapest in a church with some worship and good reports from the participants. We are quite sure we accomplished all God wanted the short while we were there.
