European Trumpet Call in Skopje June 18-21, 2014.

Blowing the trumpets!The European Trumpet Call gathered some European prayer networks to blow a spiritual wake up call for Europe. There were a bit more than 200 people in the mornings and up to 500 in the evenings from about 30 nations.

God blessed us with with His presence being strong and guiding us to pray His prayers for Macedonia, the Balkans and Europe.

We also had the honor of having Prince Philip of Prussia with us, telling the story of his grand grand-father Kaiser Wilhelm the 2nd, not resisting the pressure of the generals to start the WWI. He took responsibility for his family’s actions and repented for their wrong doings.

Praying around the flags of EuropeBrian Mills, who is a father in the prayer movement in the world, led us in prayer for the reconciliation between the nations; leading us in forgiving the people and nations around us. This was especially strong for the Balkan nations, and started some powerful work and release in the hearts that will continue in the weeks and months to come with healing of the nations as a result.

In every session we blew the trumpets. The last day we blew the trumpets for Israel and the Jews of Europe with all the European flags on the floor, before we finished with a celebration.

Podgorica June 23-24, 2014

Foundations uncoveredWe were just a small team of 7 coming to Podgorica, but our prayers were very efficient and we were guided in what to pray in a very clear way by the Holy Spirit. Before going out to pray, we prayed for the foundation of the city. And the first thing we saw as we went out of our hostel, was that workers had found some old foundations as they wanted to build. The work had to stop as archaeologists were coming in to bring up the graves and buildings to find out the truth. The truth is really covered up in Montenegro and corruption is everywhere. We prayed according to Isaiah 28:14-19, that Jesus as a cornerstone should be put in the foundations, blowing away all corruption, lies and falsehood.

Small parliamentAfter this we had an appointment with an ex-minister being able to speak into his life and the future of the nation. In the afternoon we went to pray at a communist monument. Actually it was an altar and a worship place. That is strange for an ideology which doesn’t believe in God. This year makes 70 years that communism has been in Montenegro, which is a special time for God and as it is written in Jeremiah 29:10-11, the time of change has come and God is doing a new thing. We proclaimed these new things from the hill behind the city.

The last day we prayed some around the government, before we finished in front of the red carpet of the government and the presidential building, for the King of Glory to enter in and take His place.

Pristina April 6-8, 2014 :

Again we were welcomed with open hearts at the international church in Pristina, which was really in the center of town. We received a good explanation of the history of Kosovo and especially of 2 very significant monuments in the country ; The place where the Sultan’s heart was buried and a monument of the Serbs and their victory over the Ottomans. Both places are like pilgrimage places feeding nationalism and the claim of the land.

SultanThe burial place of the Sultan’s heart. The Sultan that had invaded Europe and wanted to islamisize it in 1489. Burying a heart like that is pure witch craft and influences the Balkans even today.

monumentClose to this is a Serbian monument. Milosovic gathered about 1 million people in the fields in front and spoke (probably very much like Hitler) before the ethnic cleansing started there in the 1990’s. We had a powerful time of prayer there and it would be great to see exactly what happened as we prayed.

Later in the afternoon, we were able to go to the mayor’s office. He had been elected 5 months ago. His party was the 3rd biggest party in the country, but surprisingly he was elected. Maybe because he wanted to fight corruption. We had selected 4 people to go and see him in his office as we thought not many could go, but he invited all the team, 30 in his office. The testimonies afterwards from the Kosovars, was that they were impressed by his humility and wanted to pray more for him.

After that we split up the teams to go in front of the court of justice and the minister of justice. Justice and corruption are prayer subjects in the Balkans. God seems to be doing something about that in Kosovo as well as Albania.

The last day, we finished off by praying in front of the parliament, especially according to Psalm 2 and Psalm 24, for God to enter in to that place of importance.

PRAGUE: 25-26 Oct 2011
We experienced many of the same things in Prague as in Warsaw. We were warmly welcomed by the local church, some of whom joined us to go and pray. A group of us went to the site commemorating the Battle of the White Mountain which saw the Catholic Habsburgs fighting the local Protestants during the 30 Years War, the effects of which are still evident in the Czeck republic today. We all prayed at Bethlehem Chapel where the Czech Reformer, Jan Hus preached and taught before being arrested, judged and burnt at the stake. Other times included praying in front of the statues of the first two presidents of the Czeck Republic, at the site of a village completely destroyed by the Nazis, and finally at the Czech Parliament. On the last evening we took part in a worship evening organized 3 times a week in the church which hosted us. Again we were able to pray with and for the people, particularly the younger ones.
We have a great God who loves us and who works in power.

Report Paris May 28th and 30th 2011

A good international team met in Paris for 2 days. The aim was to pray for the government, the authorities and France in general.

We had strong times of worship and times of repentance as representatives of the church for wrongs done during the centuries. (The church has also done good things) The church has often not accomplished what it should. It should spread the life of the Gospel.

We went in small teams to different places in the Capital repenting for what has been done and is still being done today as well: St. Bartholomew , the place of execution of the Knights Templars, idol worship places during the revolution, Le Vel d’Hiv, la Salpetrier, sexual immorality that had been particularly marked in certain places. During times of repentance at these places, the Lord gave us more things to pray about.

The second day we all walked down the Champs-Elysées in small teams. We prayed for the political authorities especially during this time of unrest before the presidential elections (notably with the case of Strauss-Kahn). We prayed for the president in front the Elysée Palace and the national assembly for the government that they will have wisdom and blessings to govern in a right way.

The joy and unity was strong in the team.
