Prayer day for the EU

on the 1st Sunday in May

The Evangelical Alliance Flanders instigated, since 2004, the first Sunday in May the yearly day of prayer for the EU. When the apostle Paul asks Christians to pray for the authorities (1 Tim. 2: 1-2), it will require us to take an active interest in our European institutions, especially in terms of prayer. If Christians don’t exercise their influence, others surely will!

That’s why we are asking churches to take a short time during the Sunday service (the first of May) to pray for the EU. The subjects below are meant to help you.
