Global Prayer Call - A short introduction by the Founding Director of GPC

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.

Standing together for Israel and the wellbeing of our nations

We live in fascinating times. Israel is being restored before our very eyes. The Middle East is becoming more and more the central focus of most of the challenges facing the world today. Once again, Israel appears to be at the core of world tensions and questions.

The Bible tells us that since the calling of Abraham and the promise of blessings through his posterity (Gen 12), the nations have been facing a major challenge:

  • to accept God’s sovereign choice and be positioned to be a blessing to the Jewish people and Israel, or
  • to rebel and deny that Israel has played, is playing and will play a central role for the blessing of God upon the nations until the end of time.

Since the beginning of Christian history, this truth has been denied for the most part, not only by the leaders of the world but also by the Church. As a consequence, most nations have gone astray and are still blinded today in regards to the order set by God for this world.

As the Bible announces, there will be a time when my nation and your nation, will find themselves in the “Valley of decision” (Joel 3). There, the Lord Jesus will separate the sheep-nations from the goat-nations (Matt. 25). On which side will my nation and your nation be?
