- November 2nd-4th, 2023
- 48 h divided between Estonians and Americans
- Focus on America, Estonia and Tartu Academy of Theology
We witness at Tartu Academy of Theology that prayer has a great power and through prayer we are receiving encouragement to do our mission work in Estonia.
Since we have one year to go until Home of Hope's mortgage due date, we need God's guidance and blessing also in this final phase.
Not only us, but all Estonians and Americans need prayer!
That's why we are calling you to join the prayer chain, which is joining Estonians and Americans!
WILL YOU PRAY WITH US?
The prayer chain will take place from November 2nd to 4th, 2023. 48 hours have been divided into 4 periods (time zone US Central Time):
- 1st period: Nov. 2nd 10pm to Nov. 3rd 10am - ESTONIANS PRAY
- 2nd period: Nov. 3rd 10am to Nov. 3rd 10pm - AMERICANS PRAY
- 3rd period: Nov. 3rd 10pm to Nov. 4th 10am - ESTONIANS PRAY
- 4th period: Nov. 4th 10am to Nov. 4th 10pm - AMERICANS PRAY
Each period has been divided into 30 minute slots. But if you'd like you could pray for more than 30 minutes and just take more slots. There's no limit for that.
During your 30 minute slot we kindly ask for you to look at the prayer requests (listed below) and in your own preferred prayer method (singing, silent prayer, group prayer etc.) and location (home, church etc.) take time to bring those topics in front of God.
To be sure that we cover the whole 48h, we'd like to ask you to choose the time suitable for you to pray and register in the form brought out below.
If you miss the opportunity to book a specific time, you can still pray on these prayer topics at a time that suit you.
We want to focus on America, Estonia and Tartu Academy of Theology & Home of Hope. It is crucial to support one another through paryer. We also have to remember to pray for Ukraine and Israel.

HELP THE STORIES TO CONTINUE!
$1 MILLION TO GO
$1.2 million has been raised.
$1 MILLION STILL NEEDS TO BE RAISED BEFORE NOVEMBER 15, 2024, to:
- pay off the mortgage and become full owners of the Home of Hope facility;
- sustain this great tool for the work of the Kingdom of God;
- get a permanent source of income to finance our mission work (in three years, we have earned $100,000 from the rent of premises which covers all maintenance costs and much more)
The lender is the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church. Our payments go back to the fund that finances the construction of churches. The money paid as interest will be used to:
- publish a new church hymnal;
- support the church’s youth work.
Paying off the loan maintains our independence in preaching the Word of God.
