800 year anniversary for Dresden

A birthday present for Dresden

Dresden is becoming 800 years old. In 1206 Dresden was
mentioned for the first time in documents.
And: to every birthday there are birthday presents

We want to bless Dresden with a beautiful present:
We seak for the wellbeing of our city, that the people feel
good and that peace, security, protection and prosperity
mark out Dresden.

As we christians knowingly have a good link to the boss
of the universe, we want to use this link a lot for our
present and give much prayer to Dresden as a present:

800 hours of prayer - 1 hour for every year!
Of course we do not manage this on our own, but want to
offer the possibility to many people - near and far - to
take part in the present.

Whoever wants to join can take over times of prayer for
Dresden, praying by himself or as a group.
This initiative runs during the year of 2006.


here are a few ideas, how to participate:

simply: praying for Dresden; proclaiming Jesus’ name;
praying, that people find god, find life
prayerwalking in the city: walking through the city,
praying at important buildings and places for the people, the
leaders, musicians etc. Consider visiting - a prayer journey
with the prayer group or cell group: discover Dresden by
preparing a session on Dresden in your group, pray together.
keep well informed: You might not access newspapers
covering Dresden - often inspiring prayers - but you can
retrieve information through the Dresden websites or stay in
contact with us!
There are no limits to you creativity - just put it into action.
Best to do it right now.

To really be able to put together these times of prayer
as such a present to Dresden, we ask every participant
to tell or email us, how much share he wants to take over
(in hours or minimum in half-hours) or has prayed already.
