With the inner determination to really be there and pray today, I went to political prayer that day. Despite all my efforts in this regard, I felt a resistance within me. Everyone was saying their prayers out loud, but not a word came out of my mouth. I could not join in the prayers from my heart, even though I tried so hard to focus on God and the prayers. What is wrong with me? Why can't I pray along and why does my heart feel walled in?
Unable to answer these and similar questions, I later cried out to God in the woods. I asked the Holy Spirit to show me why I could not make myself one with the others in political prayer for Germany. What he then showed me shocked me deeply! I had not known that Swiss pride and arrogance towards the German nation were in me. Suddenly my guilt was clear before my eyes. After a time of inner wrestling, I asked God for forgiveness and was then allowed to experience how He not only forgave me, but literally flooded me with His love. He deeply penetrated me with the truth: My true place of citizenship is heaven! I felt God's heartbeat for His children and nations. Immediately I began to pray with all my heart for Germany and other nations.
Since this experience, I can always feel God's love for Germany and pray (with) all my heart! Hallelujah!
