Praying for elections: 19-26 May 2019

We live in a period of elections in Belgium. You will have noticed on TV or in the streets. Some of you will have the opportunity to vote, others won’t. But you can influence the elections and Belgian politics anyway, through the power of prayer! Our country needs it desperately. It’s far better for us to pray for our politicians than to complain about them.

Since 2003 “Pray4belgium” has organized a prayer action during the week before the elections (19-26 May).

You could be a big blessing for our country! Let’s believe for a spiritual change!

John Van Ruusbroec (1293-1381): A Flemish Mystic

John Van Ruusbroec (1293-1381) is relatively unknown, which is rather a pity. Yet he had already gained international fame in his own day, and people would travel from afar to be able to speak to him. He was considered one of the great mystics of the southern Netherlands, and is still one of the most translated authors in Dutch literature. He is really worth to be studied deeper: the way he experienced God was very intense and deep, and may be an encouragement for us to also seek God’s face more. And it’s good to know the old spiritual wells in our country. May this article help in this!
