Nine Days of Prayer concluding with a Live Stream Event on Whitmonday

A nationwide, transdenominational, 9-day Prayer Initiative (Novena) will take place in Austria May 14-22, with a video kick-off on May 13 and a livestreamed Prayer Celebration on Whitmonday, May 24.

Anyone can register here on this platform to receive regular prayer info and can use our Prayer Calendar to choose one or more prayer times during these nine days,  and thus join with many others to pray for Austria round the clock.

On each day of the novena, a video will be posted on YouTube with links on social media and here on this website with a short devotional and prayer requests from each of the nine Austrian provinces.

The concluding Prayer Celebration on Whitmonday, May 24, at 7 p.m., will be livestreamed on Youtube and will feature representatives of all the denominations in Austria, such as the Greek-Orthodox Metropolitan Arsenius, the Lutheran Superintendant of Vienna Matthias Geist, the Roman-Catholic Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, the Speaker of the Free Churches Reinhard Kummer, etc.

All Christians in Austria are invited to join us in prayer. The theme of this prayer initiative is based on the well-known 8th century hymn Veni Creator Spiritus (Come Creator Spirit).


 

Nine Days of Prayer for Austria’s Provinces

In our call for united, nationwide prayer at Pentecost, with the request that God would fill our country with His Spirit, we would like to invite Austria’s provinces to each focus their prayer on one of the nine days. We invite churches, parishes, and other groups to participate in bringing our country before God.

We have found a coordinator for each province who will act as a point of contact. Every province should assume responsibility for the day on which the video about that province is shown, and all participants should register and sign up in the Prayer Calendar.

We would ask that you help spread this information, to invite people to pray, and united by the Holy Spirit to intercede for our country. God hears our prayers, and so we trust that through your and our prayer Austria will be blessed and transformed.

 


*) Novena: from Latin novem, “nine”, is a nine day period of prayer, especially before Pentecost, based on the report in Acts 1:13-14 that after Christ’s ascension the Apostles, with Mary and other disciples, waited prayerfully in the Upper Room until the Holy Spirit came upon them nine days later on the day of Pentecost.

We would love to hear from you!
