For GPC, this first conference after 2015 was a milestone in many ways: It made an impact through a conference of national relevance and significance. It continued the German-Ugandan partnership in the footsteps of Reinhard Bonnke. It acknowledged, confirmed and reinforced the excellent cooperation between Drake Kanaabo, leader of Christians for Israel in Uganda with the Israeli Embassy of Kenya/Uganda on the one side and the government of Uganda on the other side. And, in the wake of this conference, a next step was taken: A pan-African council for the GPC was established.
In this new season, Africa is key to the first phase of development of the “Global Prayer Call” for a number of reasons:
- Africa – a unique spirit of prayer has developed in the living Body of Christ - often in the midst of suffering.
- In the nations and regions of Christian revival the Christian population is often the strongest and most reliable segment of society. Many leaders, including political leaders, come out of this move of the Spirit, and even non-Christian national leaders have a high level of respect and appreciation for this segment of society.
- On a continental level, especially in central Africa, the question of who will prevail is still an open issue: Will it be the Spirit of God bringing revival and a renewal and blossoming of society, or the spirit of Islam. Here, the Biblical revelation of Israel and the relationship our nations have the people and the land of Israel is key.
Many readers from all continents have testified to the eye-opening effect of Harald Eckert’s book entitled “Israel, the Nations and the Valley of Decision”. With his easily understood clear logic and deep understanding of the Scriptures, Harald helps the reader understand the deeper meaning behind the “valley of decision” in Joel 3 and the parable of the “sheep and goat nations” in Matthew 25. On that basis, God's mandate to the praying church becomes abundantly clear.
The first 16 chapters of the book, the teaching part, are followed by articles by five other highly respected authors giving their perspective on the significance of a nation's attitude and actions towards Israel and the Jewish people. Finally, in the third part, a practical prayer guide helps you pray for Israel, for your nation and for the praying church worldwide. Please check our website to find out how to order your copy. Please note: Those who order the book before July 1st will receive it at a discount pirce of 9,95 € instead of 12,95 €!
Please also note that translations of the book are available to download at no charge in as many as nine other languages.
“The 70 year period after the end of WWII came to a close last year, but the 'valley of decision' is still ahead of the nations”
The “Global Prayer Call” – a call for prayer for your nation and its relationship to Israel – continues on. About one year after the “100 days of prayer “ ended with a remarkable prayer-conference in Jerusalem in May 2015, Harald Eckert, the initiator of the “100 days” says: “The 70 year period after the end of WWII came to a close last year, but the 'valley of decision' is still ahead of the nations”. We have to pray and call others to prayer until Jesus comes back!”
