GPC "First Friday" Newsletter – May 2021

Dear praying friends!

I recently read a word in the Psalms that really touched me. Psalm 86,9-10: „All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.“ God has made the nations! And they shall worship HIM and glorify HIM! How wonderful!!! But you know: Only those nations who bless Israel will come into the final fulfillment of their calling and will finally be healed and finally worship HIM, the Lamb, and reign with HIM. (Rev 22,1-5)

Welcome to our GPC newsletter for May 2021!

Prayer for Israel

Israel continues to be under a lot of pressure and tension: The political crisis after the 4th elections in two years, the covid pandemic, social and financial pressures, the threat by Iran and their proxies, etc. Last week Israel was crushed by the most severe civil catastrophe in its 73 year modern existence: 45 where crushed to death, over 150 hurt at a mass Lag B’Omer event in Meron. „Good Shepherd of Israel – have mercy upon your people!!!“ (Psalm 23)

GPC "First Friday" Newsletter – February 2021

Dear intercessors around the world!

I trust you all had a blessed Christmas season and a Spirit-filled start into the New Year. As for Israel, the start into 2021 was an extremely challenging one. Israel is into its third lockdown, unemployment and poverty in the land is rising to record levels and new elections are on the way since the unity-government fell apart under the current internal and external pressures. Let us continue to pray for Israel and bless Israel in these challenging and uncertain days!

The change of administration in the US

On January 20, after many tensions and battles regarding election integrity and procedure as well as the storming of the capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Joe Biden was installed as the 46th president of the United States of America. As GPC, we had encouraged prayer for the re-election of Donald Trump for a number of reasons, but mostly for the way he has changed US-Israel relations during his term and the promises he made to continue on that route. How shall we now respond and adapt?

Since the basis of our prayer as GPC was Daniel 2:19-22, our encouragement would be to continue our prayer on this basis:

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.“

Our encouragement would be to find peace in the fact that the Lord our God is higher and above this political decision. If our God is willing and able to handle king Nebuchadnezzar, the greatest enemy of Israel at that time, he also can handle Joe Biden, speak to him, transform him and even work through him.

Die Völkerwelt und Israel – ein globales Gebetsanliegen

Seit dem Jahr 2015 – dem 70. Jahrestag vom Ende des Holocaust – ist mit Unterstützung von Christen an der Seite Israels ein neuer Dienst erwachsen: Der Global Prayer Call (GPC) – zu Deutsch etwa: Weltweiter Gebetsaufruf. Der GPC ist ein wachsendes weltweites Netzwerk von Gebetsleitern und Gebetsbewegungen, die in der Liebe zu und im Gebet für Israel vereint sind.

Auf der Basis von 1.Mose 12,3 kommt für den GPC ein weiteres Gebetsanliegen hinzu: Das Gebet für unsere Völker und Nationen in ihrer Beziehung zu Israel: „Ich will segnen, die dich (Abram und deine Nachkommen Israel) segnen, und wer dir (Abram und deinen Nachkommen Israel) flucht, den werde ich verfluchen.“ Der GPC ermutigt Fürbitter weltweit, neben dem Gebet für Israel auch das Gebet für die eigene Nation, die eigene Regierung, Kirche und Gesellschaft im Verhältnis zu Israel hinzuzufügen.

GPC "First Friday" Newsletter – September 2020

Dear praying friends around the world!

As the “times of shaking” continue, the Lord is expanding His Kingdom. I trust that many of you are personally experiencing His endless grace, His divine protection, His fatherly pruning, and His patient leadership. Certainly, in Israel, in the affairs of the nations and in His body, the believing church, His Kingdom and the preparations for His return are progressing and expanding.

The upcoming Ten Days of Awe, between Sept 18th and 28th 2020.

Through the Jewish calendar and the biblical feasts, the Lord provides a deeply meaningful and precious opportunity for both the Jewish people and the body of Christ to humble ourselves before Him - the creator, judge and redeemer. As GPC, we want to invite you to use this opportunity personally as well as in your priestly calling as you reflect – as a representative of the royal priesthood (1 Pet 2,9) - on the relationship between your nation and Israel. In this unique season of world events, let us put these 10 days of awe to effective use in 2020! Let us use this opportunity to reflect, research and repent for our nations as an expression of the global intercessory body of Christ and ask for HIS redemption and forgiveness for the failings of our nations in their relationship with the Jewish people and the nation of Israel - past and present. How we can take our stand and cooperate in biblical and spiritual unity shall be further explained in this newsletter, in the current First Friday video clip and in further information to be published on our website within the next 1-2 weeks.
