Call of the watchmen

Prayer Letter for Germany - April 2019

Dear intercessors, 


Let us look again at our vision for the Call of the Watchmen on the website ( ) where we wrote: "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." 


And God spoke to Ezekiel: "... I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel: so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me." (Ezekiel 33:7). Paul confirms that through Jesus we are now: "members of God's household" (Ephesians 2:19) and therefore we are watchmen for our churches and communities and nations (as well as for Israel!). 


In the last few prayer letters alone we have sounded the warning on many issues in our society to us personally and to the whole body of Christ in these days: our school children and young people, support for families, abortion laws and termination for foetus disabilities, migration and integration of refugees, detection of terrorist activities, EU crisis and Brexit, elections for European Parliament and in Israel, miracle of restoration of democracy in Germany, further reconcliation within Germany and with Russia, ....


But as we read in this prayer letter, let us come to God our Father first of all with a "sacrifice of sincere thanks" for all the good things that he gives us and also to thank him for the privelege of being called as watchmen to intercede for our nations - and for every experience of the power of prayer as we thank God for "answers to prayer".


And we thank you for praying for Germany!


Your Call of the Watchmen Team - International.
