Germans love the outdoors, fresh air, and exercise. No matter what the weather, they will spend time on weekends going for a stroll through town, taking a walk along a river path, or hiking through fields and forests. Along the way they will admire the beauty of nature – the blue sky or interesting cloud formations, wildflowers growing in fields, animals scampering about the forest, trees growing tall and stately, bubbling brooks, and tranquil lakes. Although they have eyes to see the magnificent creation, the majority are blind to the Almighty Creator, who made it. Will you join with the GERMANIC CLUSTER in pleading with the Giver and Sustainer of Life to open the spiritual eyes of the people of Germany? May they recognize the Creator and receive His free gift of eternal life.
There are close to 6 million Germanic descendants living in Brazil, who speak a variety of languages including grammatical German, Hunsrik, Pomeranian, Mennonite Platt Deutsche, Westfalen and Bairisch. Two of these language groups are engaged, but all groups remain unreached with the gospel. Join members of the DIASPORA CLUSTER in BRAZIL in petitioning the Father to raise up more laborers for the harvest.
January 2013 – a new month and a new year. What will it bring? What does it hold for those living in Germanic countries? Will the economic crisis be solved? Will the Euro zone remain intact? Will global warming have negative effects on their countries? As the year begins, there are many unsettling issues. People are concerned about what the future has in store for them and instead of looking forward to the new year with hope, joy, and anticipation, they are fearful and worried. Intercede with the GERMANIC CLUSTER that Germans and Austrians will place their faith in our unchanging God and find peace, hope and comfort in Him and His promises, as they face the uncertainties of the future.
Daylight hours are growing ever shorter in Germany and with Daylight Savings Time having ended on Oct. 28 another hour of evening light has been stolen away. The weather is often cold and gray with fog and rain. It’s a time of year, when many Germans become depressed. In order to dispel the gloom, they often light candles in the evenings to brighten the room, as well as their moods. Intercede with the GERMANIC CLUSTER that Germans will discover the Light of the World this month and welcome Him into their lives and homes. ”Then Jesus spoke to them again: ‘I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life’” (Jn. 8:12).
