The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give.
The Vision of HOP Meran-o (House of Prayer) is a place of uninterrupted prayer, of intercession and praise. The „Fire on the Altar“ (a biblical picture for prayer and worship) shouldn’t stop day and night, 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
We not only want to be a place of ongoing intercession and adoration, but rather a place, where God rests with his presence. We believe, that the House of Prayer is a place of encounter an intimacy with Jesus. The more we surrender, give him our time and meditate the Bible, the more we get a vision of who God is and what he wants to do in our life.
The House of Prayer is not a church, or a place where we celebrate mess or church service. Neither a substitute or competition – we want to build the kingdom of God in cooperation with all christian confessions in South Tyrol.
We want to bring the German and Italian languages together, by giving the opportunity, that both may come together and express themselves in unity – for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Jesus came to serve, to love and to honor the people. We want to follow this example, by loving, honoring and serving God and the people. Our love among us can not express itself without a serving heart.
Unity means not, that we are all the same, but that we look at Jesus and love, honor and serve him together. This is only working, when we meet each other in the love of Christ, to honor, respect each other and look at our common ground – Jesus Christ.
We live unity – among the christians, all cultures and languages in South Tyrol. With uninterrupted prayer and adoration we are achieving this goal. We believe, that through prayer blessing flows and influences our district.
Jesus is first in our lives and on the throne of our hearts. Everything is subordinate to him. This passion for our groom, Jesus, should reflect our everyday life.
The prayer room is the heart of the house of prayer. This is the place where we want to make our vision of 24/7 prayer happen. There are different types of formats on prayer.
Our current prayer times are:
Monday 19.30 – 21.00
Tuesday 19.30 – 21
Wednesday 20.00 – 21.00
Thursday 19.30 – 21.00
You may visit us during these times and pray with us.
It’s a combination of powerful worship and spoken prayer. The topic will be presented and moderated by the prayer leader. In alternating singing the singers sing about the spoken prayer and combine it in a chorus. Everybody is invited to sing with us, or pray an appropriate prayer at the microphone.
Worship with the word
This worship time, is an invitation, to dive in the word of God. Together we consider, sing and meditate through a bible text and let affect our hearts. You can personally pray the bible verse and sing the spontaneous chorus.
This calm worship time will be arranged by one or two musicians. Songs and spontaneous melodies alternate. Feel free, to study the Bible, pray or rest in Gods presence.
Worship from the „Speaker“
If there is no live worship in the prayer room, we play the web stream of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City / USA.
The Vision „House of Prayer in Meran“ started with Devid Walder and Dominik Raich. During „Mehr“ conference in 2013, God put thought of a house of prayer in Meran in Dominiks heart. One year later Devid got a clear vision of a house of prayer. Together and despite different confessions (Dominik is catholic, Devid comes from the independent church) the adventure began. In the following years more and more people came together and with Valentina (wife of Devid), Monika (wife of Dominik) and other believers the leadership team established. Over three years this group of people, with different backgrounds met weekly for prayer and worship. In this time the „spiritual seed“ was planted.
Now the house of prayer family consist of over 30 voluntary employees, two full-time missionaries and many partners and supporters. We believe in more growth, and pray that HOP Meran-o will be a spiritual lighthouse for our land.
We are part of HOP Allianz, a network of different prayer houses in all of Italy. In Caserta HOP Italia commenced, and spread the movement to the nation.
