The Canopy of Prayer over Europe


You have reached the website of the “Canopy of Prayer over Europe”.

Take a look at our Logo! Can you feel the inspiration of this move of the Holy Spirit forming a canopy (baldachin) of prayer over Europe?

When we say “Europe” we mean Europe as the whole continent, from the Ural mountains to the rugged coast of the green island of Ireland, which needs our prayers. The EU, however, needs our urgent prayers especially at this turning point in its history to turn back to God’s ways. God clearly promises: “Ask, and it shall be given to you.” (Luke 11,9).

We hope you discover some new insights as you browse through this website.
And we would be delighted if you – and perhaps your friends – would join us in our prayers for Europe.


Council of Europe (CoE)

Often when we speak about Europe and its institutions we only consider the European Union and its 28 (soon to be 27) nations. In July 2016, a special Canopy prayer letter explained the different institutions which make up the EU. However if we want to pray for all those in authority over our continent we should also look at the Council of Europe (CoE).
