Pray for ISTgroup

Pray for ISTgroup: We covet your prayers for ISTGroup this week as we provide a prayer seminar for the Body of Christ here in Zagreb. We are hosting a family from Bazel, Switzerland who serve in a house of prayer themselves and also do coaching for IHOP Kansas City.
The seminar will last for 6 days, devoted to many aspects of prayer and worship in a house of prayer setting; there will be times of instruction and practice. We will also go out to the key gates of the city and pray over Zagreb. IST Group is also preparing to host several other conferences in the coming months.
The Upper Room House of Prayer has been amazing. We meet five times a week, Monday through Friday to worship the Lord and seek His plan for our city, Croatia as a country and needs of the Balkan countries. There are about ten individuals who join us at various times throughout the week. Every day is different and exciting as we come with expectation to discover more about our Lord and His ways.
As you can see on ISTGroup – Intentional Strategies for Transformation , the three pillars of the organization are to promote prayer, empower the underutilized (poor) and to disciple. God has given us a clear mandate to start with phase one, which is to establish the House of Prayer. We feel that out of the place of prayer the other two pillars will come into proper alignment.
1) Please let us first rejoice in the Lord. As we are faithful He is more than faithful. As you stop and pray for us and ISTgroup, God is truly making advancements. We are witnesses, “as He is lifted up, He does draw men unto Himself”.
2) Pray that the presence of Jesus would increase in the Upper Room Zagreb House of Prayer (URHOP Zagreb).
3) We are so very thankful for the Tendon family coming to share with us their insight and anointing in regards to prayer and worship. Pray that the Lord would truly release His anointing over them as they teach.
4) Pray with us that the burning ones in this city would attend this seminar and the other upcoming seminars as well. Pray also for many to have a fire lit in their hearts for a deeper walk with the Lord.
5) Our heart cry is to see Jesus honored in Zagreb, Croatia and throughout the Balkans. Let us pray for the advancement of His Kingdom in this region.
6) As we go to the key gates of Zagreb to pray, may we stand in the Lord’s boldness and proclaim His victory.
