About Us

We are Christians from many European countries, working together to pray regularly for our continent, regardless of our denominations. We do not pray only for our own countries or only for the EU nations but for the whole continent in which God has placed us and given us authority in prayer.

Since 2006 we have come together as the “European Union of Prayer“ (EUoP), travelling to those countries which hold the rotating EU presidency for half a year each to pray there with 30-40 people from 12-15 nations. This has increasingly opened our hearts for Europe.

Find out more about the “European Union of Prayer” on our website It was in this group that the Canopy of Prayer initiative started.

The Canopy Team

The Canopy Team consists partly of committee members of EUoP, partly of persons with the gift of writing i.e. committed freelancers.


Demographic trends, religion and Christian faith in Europe

In our last article, Professor Evert van de Poll looked at the demographic decline in Europe, aggravated by the practice of abortion, and how the population only remains stable due to immigration. In this article Evert will continue reflecting on the demographic changes in our continent and relate them to religion and the Christian faith. His conclusions are very interesting and there is much to pray for! We wish to clarify from our last article that we are not at all against immigration and migrants. They often bring new vitality to our societies. The Bible is clear that foreigners must be treated fairly. “When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not ill-treat them.” Leviticus 19:33 Paul wrote that “all are one in Christ Jesus” Galatians 3:28 However, we are very against the killing of unborn children through abortion. Everyone at Canopy of Prayer wishes you a blessed and fruitful Summer and see you in September!
