Report Brussels June 4-5, 2011

Belgian Identity (click for full-size image)Our time in Brussels was very encouraging. Last time in January we believe something was born concerning the belgian identity. There was enthusiasme when we left last time. But before arriving this time, not many people had registered (also because of other things happening at the same time), so we wonder what was new.

Then the second day of prayer, the declaration to the right was brought. A belgian prayer network has made this. If this can be believed and spread, it has the power to change Belgium. Yes, this is definately something powerful that has been born!

The first day we were 18 of us going to St.Gery and “La Grande Place” (the big square). St.Gery was the oldesr center of Brussels, not the Grand Place as many believe.. We prayed a lot for the foundational identity of Brussels to spring forth at St.Gery. We had an inspired time of prayer all together there. At the Grand Place, we split up in 3 teams praying at the different important buildings.

Parc De Bruxelles

The second day we went to pray at the federal government building, the King’s palace and the garden between. Belgium has been without a government since June 13 last year. The garden between the 2 buildings of authority is full of freemason symboles. It’s called the Warande Park. In a book we saw, “The secrets of Brussels”, it explains all the freemason symboles they have made in the park. You can easily see many of them on the photo. We walked and prayed over the whole area in 3 teams. We prayed for things in the darkness to be exposed by the light. Is 28:14-18 was a good declaration.
This was definately a place of authority. Psaume 2:10-11 was very fitting as well:
Therefore, you king, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear….
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry

We left this place and Brussels happy to have accomplished what we should.

We met 100 m from this buildingJan 25-27, 2011

In Brussels we had 20-25 Christians joining us. The city had been prepared with a lot of prayers. We were well-hosted only 100m from the EU-commission building. The worship and prayer was powerful with lots of words from the Lord coming through. So we were strengthened before going out. Small teams went out to pray around the EU-buildings. The following days we also had visits inside the EU-commission and the EU-parliament.

The president of the European parliament, Mr Buzek, speaking at the holocost memorial.The first day, four of the OCE-team could go to the remembrance day of the Holocaust thanks to the European Coalition for Israel who were among the organisers. The list of “big names” who shared was long : The president of the European Parliament Mr. Buzek, President of the World Jewish Congress, the president of the European Jewish Congress, the Rabbi from Jerusalem….. and more. It has become an important meeting with 80% Jews, and they see it as something important. Thank God for the Christians organising with the Jews on behalf of the European Parliament. It was quite obvious that the Jews are really important for God in connection to Europe and their governments. Both in Strasbourg and Brussels we had important meetings with the Jewish people and we had better keep that in our minds as we continue to pray in the rest of the European capitals.

The last day, we were led to pray for Belgium and the national identity. As we all know, Belgium is going through a crisis, being without a government for so long. We felt something was born in the Spirit in the morning. We all had the same impression and felt we needed to pray more about it in the evening. This seemed to be a preparation for when we come back to Brussels to pray for the national government June 4-5.
