HOP gathering in Europe

augsburg hopI have just returned from Augsburg, Bavaria in South Germany, from a prayer summit. With my friends Paul, Kev & Katie, we spent four amazing days with 120 leaders of houses of prayer across Europe. 42 HOPs, 20 nations, every denominational stream – an awesome mix of variety but with the same DNA! Everyone is following God’s call to grow night and day worship and prayer in specific places for the sake of cities and nations.

I was a bit blown away by the sense of significance of the gathering. We went to connect with likeminded people and we certainly did. We met some beautiful people with very moving stories of how God has led them on a prayer journey over the years; some great miracles and costly sacrifice. God’s presence was strong amongst us. I was personally touched afresh by God’s amazing love which keeps freeing my heart to grow in Him and in my destiny.

The Augsburg HOP team blessed us beyond expectation and they are a powerful example of a dedicated space with continuous corporate worship and intercession since 2010 – and from a Catholic charismatic stream.

We have come away feeling very much part of a Holy Spirit movement with a growing momentum across our great continent. We are looking to see the glory of God cover the earth.

As the song says: ‘Day and night, night and day, let incense arise!’
