Our Story 

I’m Maria Cistaro and this is my husband, Angelo Nero. We’ve been married since 2014 with a very long story behind us. We both grew up in the same church since we were children, in our small town on a hill in the district of Crotone, in Calabria (South Italy). A Ministry called Fonte di Grazia in Mesoraca, whose Senior Pastor is Giovanni Aiello. This is our spiritual home where we still serve with great honour.

In 2020, during the lockdown, we felt the call from God to serve in the House of Prayer in Italy. It’s been crucial time in both our personal lives and as a couple. We knew this ministry because we have been following the House of Prayer both in Italy and in Kansas City, the International House of Prayer. After a time of fasting and prayer, we felt the push from God to move to the headquarter in Italy, which is in Caserta, whose Founder and President is Giuseppe Conte.Here we served for 2 years and have had the opportunity to know all the other houses of prayer in our nation.

We chose to serve God full time and it has been 4 years now since we have not had any permanent work, except some occasional jobs and have seen the hand of God in this. He is faithful! We have some regular partners who believe in what God is calling us to do. We are believing that God will touch many more hearts for this purpose.

Our Vision

We believe God wants to bless Italy. We’re in the End Times and it’s time this nation rise up to get everything God has for her. Our desire is to be trained further to help others get equipped for such a time as this (churches and house of prayers alike). We’re praying to the Lord with intercession and pleas that Italy will be a House of Prayer. We desire to see a Generation at Jesus’ feet. We desire and pray that worshippers, musicians, singers and intercessors will arise in Italy with the same heart of David and Mary of Bethany. We’re crying out and we’ll keep doing so until it comes to pass. Join us in these requests and if you desire to have more informations do not hesitate to contact us.

After this I will return and rebuild David’s fallen tent. Its ruins I will rebuild, and I will restore it, that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who bear my name, says the Lord, who does these things’ _ things known from long ago.
Acts 15:16-18

Our Mission 

God is calling us to be Missionary Intercessors to proclaim the Beauty of Yeshua and His return through inceasing worship & intercession inspired by the Word of God. We believe God is calling not only us but a generation of intercessors, singers, musicians and prophetic worshippers who will rise up in the end time all over the world and we believe in Italy as well.

“My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty.
Malachi 1:11

“I will not enter my house or go to my bed, I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Psalm 132:3-5

In Revelation John describes the heavenly music that continues incessantly before the throne of God. Jesus taught us to pray for God’s will to be done “on earth as it is in Heaven”. Revelation 4 and 5 gives us an idea of how to worship God on earth as He is worshiped in heaven.

“And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.”
Revelation 5:8

We are also part of a Global Prayer Movement – Global Family 24-7 – and have been praying every Monday from 7 to 8 a.m. (Italian time) for Italy for 3 years. Thanks to these prayers and all the intercessors, we have become more aware of the necessity of a global prayer movement, and how other nations care about praying for Italy and the importance it will take on in recent times. It is during these last few years, God has started to open our hearts to pray for Israel through a sister with whom we pray with on zoom platform.

We want to be those whatchmen who stand on the walls and intercede so that the people of Israel may have the revelation of Yeshua their HaMashiach and also that His Church in Italy and throughout the world may receive a the Father’s heart for Israel

“I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.”
Isaiah 62:6-7
