International -The Call of the Watchmen

For the latest prayer letter for Germany please click here

Welcome to the Call of the Watchmen

Isaiah 62 v.6: I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem (“O Germany”); they will never be silent day or night. (NIV)

The Call of the Watchmen (“Der Waechterruf” in German) is a national prayer movement that is not linked to any one church. We believe that God longs for his kingdom to come on earth and for his lordship to be evident also in Germany. Therefore he calls intercessors as “spiritual watchmen” who will never stop asking him for grace and mercy for this country. They form a community of intercessors and know that they belong to a wide prayer network. Day and night their prayers are serving to open the way for God’s light and glory to break through the spiritual darkness over Germany (Isaiah 60 v.1-2).

A prayer letter is issued each month in German and English with information on current political and social issues in Germany and specific suggestions for prayer on each topic. The letters may be downloaded from this Website as PDF files and opened with the Adobe Reader program.

If you would like to receive the prayer letter in English by Email each month, please contact us by sending us an Email at: international(at)

You can also send your personal comments.

Thank you for praying for Germany!

Our Vision

Our vision for Germany

God has placed Germany at the heart of Europe with a central role to play for the countries of Europe. The Call of the Watchmen prays that Germany will recognise its calling and fulfil it in all humility.

God blessed Germany with reunification in just one hour without bloodshed. God must really love this land!

On at least three occasions the words of Isaiah 60 v.1-2 have been proclaimed prophetically over Germany – as a sign of how God wants to use it.

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.” (NIV)

If you love Germany, pray for Germany; if you pray for Germany, you will love it even more.


Our vision for prayer

Most Christians believe that God answers prayer. Very few however apply this conviction to political issues and society in general in their country.  They stay within known and trusted limits with their prayers. The Call of the Watchmen broadens the horizons of the intercessors and leads them to a greater experience of the power of prayer.  Politically speaking we are rather insignificant in the democratic process, each one of us with only a single vote on election day. But in the spiritual realm we stand before the throne of the Lord of history with our prayers. He is waiting for us to come!


Our vision for watchmen

Will God not hear when his saints call out to him day and night?

A continuous prayer chain has been formed with many thousands of participants in about 240 groups all over Germany who have been interceding for our land day and night for many years. A stream of prayer is flowing throughout Germany as never seen before.

But what are a few thousand intercessors compared with 82 million people and all the huge problems in this country? Nothing! But God does not look at numbers. He is looking for some people to boldly “stand in the gap” in prayer for their whole nation.

This is “The Call of the Watchmen”.
