"Hear the word of the Lord, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd’." (Jer. 31,10 NIV)

Exactly 120 years after the first Zionist Congress took place in late August 1897 in Basel, Switzerland, under the leadership of Theodor Herzl, Christians from all over Europe will gather in this city. One major focus is certainly to celebrate the divine miracle of modern Zionism!  Another major goal is to pray earnestly for the complete fulfilment of what God began here 120 years ago according to His covenants and promises to Israel. We also want to honor the city of Basel for recognizing the significance of this date and hosting this conference as well as other activities commemorating this historic anniversary. We want to pray and intercede for Basel, for Switzerland, for our European nations and for the church of Jesus Christ in those nations that we - and they - might come onto line with the purposes of God in our times.

As initiator of this prophetic prayer conference, the “Global Prayer Call” understands the potential of this event to be an important milestone in the process of building networks and encouraging cooperation among intercessors and prayer movements throughout Europe to take a priestly and prophetic stand for our nations and their relationships to Israel and the Jewish people at “such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). We warmly invite – and strongly encourage – prayer delegations from as many European nations as possible to participate in this strategic and formative gathering.
