Hozana is an organization run by Catholic laypersons, in an ecumenical perspective. Its mission is to help everyone to get closer to Jesus, by creating a vast community of prayer on the Internet.
The organization manages the website Hozana.org, which allows to create or join prayer communities on various subjects (intentions, meditation, teaching, etc.), as well as the Hozana App, which enables and encourages praying among friends.
Lord, we entrust our Hozana community to you,
May it shine ever more with God’s love and lead by prayer towards holiness.
Teach us to fulfill our calling of children of God.
By Jesus Christ our Lord,
« Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.» (Matthew 7:7-9)
These two verses are precisely what led me to do what I'm doing today when, at the end of my studies, I asked the Lord to help me find a job where I could serve Him. I am hopeful that Hozana will contribute to spread knowledge about this great promise while reminding me of it daily.
« For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7)
I heard this verse at the Rio's WYD in 2013. As a result, I bravely resumed my Art Studies, to beautify the world. Today, thanks to the Hozana community, I am able to make the world more prayerful with what I am, with my art skills.
