Named after the profoundly gifted Swedish author, economist, and diplomat, who served as the Secretary-General of the United Nations from April 1953 until his death in a plane crash in September1961. Becoming Secretary-General at the young age of 47, Dag Hammarskjöld was the youngest person to serve in this role. United States President John F. Kennedy called Hammarskjöld “the greatest statesman of our century.”
Named after Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish architect, businessman, diplomat and humanitarian whose life is remembered by the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial and the Raoul Wallenberg Walk, both along First Avenue in front of the United Nations. It is believed that he might have saved as many as 100,000 Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during the Holocaust.
Thank you for signing up to pray with me as we share Christ with those at the United Nations.
I’m eager to begin praying with you via our emails.
I know you have heard the news from just a couple weeks ago, about the bold decision President Trump made to uphold the Jerusalem Act of 1995 and move the U.S. Israel Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
I’m sure you were just as elated as I was and praising God for this historic move!
On Sunday, December 17th, 2017 the UN Security Council voted to denounce President Trump’s decision to move the Embassy. For the first time in the Trump administration the US cast a veto in the UN Security Council.
We praise God that of all the nations on the influential UN Security Council, only the US stood with Israel, and even more powerfully with the status of Jerusalem.
As this article states, only a year ago under the previous Obama administration, the US refused to stand in the Security Council at the UN in support of Israel’s sovereignty over its conquered land in Judea/Samaria.
This is a highly significant move in light of Matthew 25 and Genesis 12:3. The nations of the earth will be judged as to their treatment of Zion.
The UN is the closest “report Card” we have to determine where the nations of the earth stand regarding their treatment of Zion.
At this moment only one superpower nation, the United States, stands in support of Israel’s right to Jerusalem.
I thank God for President Trump and Ambassador Haley for placing our nation on the right side regarding Jerusalem.
This move will advance peace, not prevent it and will redound to blessings for both the US and the Jewish State.
Today, Thursday December 21st, in a rare emergency session at the United Nations a vote was taken to reject President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. 128 countries voted in favor, only nine countries voted in opposition, 35 abstained and 21 were absent.
Ambassador Haley delivered a pointed message on behalf of President Trump and the United States. “The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out in this assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation,” she said. “We will remember it when, once again, we are called up to make the world’s largest contribution to the U.N., and we will remember it when many countries come calling on us to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.” Read more in the Washington Post’s article.
This is a report card observed by the US and observed in the heavenlies. Prayer partners were on site at the UN and remotely as the vote was taken.
- The decision to move the U.S. embassy has caused hate and violence to rise in the Middle East. Pray for peace in Jerusalem and protection of innocent life. Psalms 122:6, “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.”
- Pray for continued boldness and courage for President Trump and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
It is an honor to be praying with you.
God be with you and bless you,
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
