House of Prayer
“I ask the Lord for one thing, which I long for: I would dwell in the house of the Lord all my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to admire his temple.”
The house of prayer is the heart of the Toda association and represents the first pillar of the activities carried out by the association.
Prayer watches are the primary means of expression of the house of prayer. With a varied format (see the description of the various proposed vigils in the “planning” tab), they all aim to gather the participants in the heart of God through adoration and to collaborate in the accomplishment of His will by inviting Him to act powerfully in oneself, in the Church and in the world through intercession.
> In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, all watches are cancelled until further notice <
Night watches start at 7:30 pm and end at 7:00 am. Everyone comes for 1, 2 or 3 hours at the most. For a question of organisation, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the time slot you plan to come.

In 2010, the Müller’s are taking up a very practical task: cleaning and converting the attic under the roof of the family home. Cleared of the various objects that were scattered in general indifference under a considerable layer of dust, the room, completely renovated and insulated by Pierre, shone brightly and was only waiting for a specific purpose.
At the beginning of 2012, the first prayer vigil was opened to the public. Adoration, meditation, intercession… the building blocks of what makes up our DNA today were already present. But as Anne-France and a few others close to us are increasingly expanding the offer with thematic vigils scattered throughout the week, God is beginning to clarify the vision of this beginning ministry: the project is not going to stop at this upper room.
Through dreams and inspired words over the past few years, it has become clear that the small attic would be only a springboard to a larger project, the house of prayer.
In 2016, work will begin. In three and a half years, the house of prayer takes shape and will be inaugurated on November 16, 2019.
Part of the Müller farm has therefore been transformed. Where the horses were fed, where Peter stored his wood and some of the machinery of his business, we now have a refectory, a music room and reception rooms will be available this spring.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in this wonderful place!
