Report Vaduz in Liechtenstein, Aug 2-3 :
Liechtenstein is a tiny country, only 20 km long and 10 km wide with 37 000 inhabitants. In Vaduz, the capital, all the strategic places were very close to one another. Liechtenstein is known to be a tax haven. We kind of expected to pray for hidden things to come to the light and for repentance of injustices. But no, – we prayed that Liechtenstein would use their riches for the Kingdom and set God first. Liechtenstein is ruled by the prince and his family who seem to be very God-fearing. We blessed them while praying outside their castle.
One remarkable thing was also that this year they put some of the national treasures for public display. This was to us a sign of openness and transparency in the finances and the riches.
Then we prayed at the parliament. We prayed that the identity of Liechtenstein should come forth, that their beauty and new name should be known as written in Is 62. Especially since Liechtenstein had been under, and kind of covered by Austria and Switzerland. We prayed for a greater degree of recognition and honor from those neighboring nations as Liechtenstein came forth in their destiny. We prayed a lot for the arts and creativity to be a reflection of that new destiny.
We then prayed at the Swiss border to Liechtenstein which was quite easy. We then prayed at the Austrian border to Liechtenstein where there seemed to be more a need for letting go of any negative attitude.
We finished by praying for the church both national and from the other nations to be instrumental in this. It was a great joy to pray for Liechtenstein.
