International Women's Day of Prayer in Austria
United in prayer, women also learn about conquering the "daily giants," those small distractions in life
Inter-European Division (EUD)
[Austria] An afternoon filled with uplifting activities provided inspiration and satisfaction for women gathered to observe International Women’s Day of Prayer. The meetings at the Liz and Wels Seventh-day Adventist Church began with a session of united prayer and closed with another prayer session that also included a season of personal, silent prayer.
Women also had opportunity to acquire knowledge during seminars and small group discussions. They learned how to deal with their “Daily Giants,” those many distractions of daily life. How do you hear the voice of God over the noise of living? It is often noted that you cannot see more than one step to take before God shines light on the next step. But sometimes, they learned, you must take additional steps in life before God reveals His next task. Even David in the Bible had to pass through his high and low phases until he was finally ready to rule as king.
Refreshments of fruit and tea wrapped up the pleasant afternoon of March 2, 2019.
