Prayer Requests

"As Christians, we would like to pray during the cycling tour for the people and countries that are suffering greatly from the Corona crisis. It is our wish that during the whole 72 hours of the cycling tour people in need are prayed for. For this purpose, we have divided the 72 hours into 30-minute segments, so that anyone who wants to join in the prayer can choose one of these segments to pray for."
