40 days of prayer and fasting in Germany
By Harald Eckert, Chairman of C4I Germany
The fasting and prayer initiative of Christians for Israel Germany has been picked up positively, especially by smaller groups and circles in Germany. People are drawn into prayer easily. There is a sense of humility and joyful seriousness. Many people are fasting one way or the other. In some cities, like Dresden, Hamburg or Munich, larger worship and/or prayer meetings are drawing more people together. As for Harald Eckert (C4I-Germany) it is a great joy to see that the love for Jesus, the love for Israel, the love for the church of Jesus and a "priestly-prophetic" sense of responsibility for Germany, flow easily together.
