At the house of prayer, Sofa&zo, I take on the role of general coordinator. We warmly welcome all those who want to give themselves over to prayer and adoration. We look forward to God’s intervention, not only in our personal lives, but also in Belgium, Israel and the world, and to his glorious return.

Sofa&zo has a twofold mission:

  1. To provide a time of uninterrupted prayer and worship 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  2. To pray in unity and faith with all those who wish to pray in the name of Jesus Christ.

Our motto is: a house of prayer for all generations and denominations.

Sofa&zo actively works to revive the desire and belief in prayer through prayer meetings, prayer training, community involvement and cooperation with surrounding churches. Each year we culminate in August with the 24/7 Week of Prayer and Worship, which welcomes intercessors and worshipers from churches all over Belgium.

My passion for prayer was born out of pure necessity. Hard work and perseverance proved insufficient; life sometimes brings challenges that we seem unable to face. Myself and other Christians have often felt tired and powerless. Sometimes we were successful, but I wanted fruit. A key question from Corrie Ten Boom stuck in my mind: “Is prayer the steering wheel or the spare tire of your life?” »

The House of Prayer was born out of a group of women praying for solutions and God’s intervention. The concept of a house of prayer was completely new, but over the course of five years of praying together, we began to feel God’s call more and more clearly. Today, 13 years later, we continue to follow his ways despite the challenges we face. The house symbolises unity across generations and denominations, anchored in prayer. The difficulties we have faced have led us to depth, authenticity, simplicity and prayer, with Christ as our supreme aspiration, in which all things are possible.
