Africa: Launching of Charismatic Online Prayers

The *Fondacio coordination in Africa initiated online charismatic prayer sessions for the benefit of Fondacio leaders and community groups on the continent. 

This initiative is in line with the creation of the International Charismatic Renewal Service and the need for spiritual communion felt within Fondacio in Africa. A process inspired by the experience of the International time of COVIVRE to reopen the path of life in Spirit within Fondacio through digital technology.

A total of six (6) countries (Bénin, Burkina Faso, Congo Brazza, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana and Togo) were online for this second monthly spiritual meeting. The objective was to continue to deepen and strengthen our participation in the stream of grace of the Charismatic Renewal, in order to live fully the spiritual communion in our various commitments and missions. 

Through praise and thanksgiving, invocation to the Holy Spirit, Lectio Divina and intercession for the challenges and missions of Fondacio in the world, especially in Africa, 15 participants out of 28 registered (gathered in groups of 4 or 3) prayed for each other for almost two (2) hours on the clock. 

For the Africa Coordination Leaders, this time is a way of helping the participants to keep their hearts attentive to the presence of Christ, whose Word is a shining lamp in the darkness, until the day appears and the morning star rises in our hearts for a more just and humane world.  

This spiritual meeting is therefore a practical response to the orientations of the meeting of those responsible for the Coordination of Fondacio in Africa, held in Calavi, Benin, in October 2019.
