The Danube Project
One sister in our MHOP heard from the Lord to pray for all the European nations.
She did it with great faithfulness - from Oct 2015 till May 2017 - often alone in her late-evening time. The Lord gave quite distinctive impressions of the needs of each nation.
I am sure it was a fruit of that prayer that in fall 2017 we were invited to represent Austria - together with Juliana Bosma - in a meeting of all the "Danube-nations".
The Danube, Donau, is quite an interesting river: It is the second longest in Europe, flows through 10 nations and has the largest amount of capital cities at its shores: Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Beograd. It has been the border of the Roman Empire against German and Celtic tribes, it served as a main transportation route for centuries and it has a famous waltz named for it :)
BUT it was also used for countless dark events; soldiers were transported along to conquer countries, Anabaptists drowned in the floods, Jews during pogroms were put on rafts without rudders - left for drowning, Nazi aircraft was transported there as well as Jewish workers shipped to the death camps, some were thrown down steep rocks into the river, the Arrowcross shot Jews along the shores in Budapest and let the river carry the corpses away... suicides en masse... an endless list.
So we assembled as 10 nations at the two spring places of the Danube river to break the power of the dark forces that had been at work for centuries. But beforehand we spent a week together, bringing all the dark happenings we were aware of before God in repentance for our own nation; then He came in and we started to repent nation toward nation, as we got aware of centuries-old sins the states/monarchies had committed against each other: dominance, occupation, presumption, aide denied in needs of all kind....it was a strong time of cleansing, repentance and forgiveness.
THEN we went to the two small wells in the Black Forest region, speaking His Kingdom and Reign over them. May the Danube become a river of life!
