It is amazing how deep worship can be - despite distance, mask and without singing. The songs were hummed along, spoken and prayed along in the heart. The prayer time that followed was powerful.
It had all started a year ago, when the first lockdown had just ended. It was obvious that our country and its leaders needed prayer and - finally! - it was possible to meet again. Quite spontaneously, Christians from different denominational backgrounds came together to pray for our country.
