Crossing Borders in Europe for Prayer

Prayers toward “redigging the wells of revival” were the focus of The Borderline Prayer Initiative in June 2012 among neighboring European countries. This strategic prayer gathering brought together 30 local participants—Czech and Slovak leaders and families from four “houses of prayer” in the Czech Republic and Slovakia—with prayer leaders Brian Mills (Interprayer), Sam Hofmann (Youth With a Mission), and John Robb (International Prayer Council). They met in a Methodist church in a town on the Czech border with Austria—a church pastored by a Jewish believer from the original Jewish population uprooted and destroyed during the Holocaust.

It was also from this same region of Moravia that the Moravians of the 18th century initiated a prayer movement that brought a time of deep revival, and later resulted in the 100-year prayer chain in Hernnhut, Germany. The Moravians also deeply inspired and impacted both England and the United States through the lives and ministries of John and Charles Wesley and George Whitefield, who were mightily used of the Lord in the Great Awakening.

The prayer leaders crossed over the border into Austria to pray at the battlefield where centuries before the Hapsburg emperor defeated the Bohemian ruler and stained the ground with the blood of many thousands of the ancestors of the Czechs and Slovaks. To this day, there remains a sense of spiritual and psychological hindrance affecting the relationship of nations in the region. Leaders believed it was an encouraging time of prayers for reconciliation and repentance, based on God’s heart for these nations together.
