Aglow Global Prayer Assignment 2017 – September Prayer Gathering
This month’s prayer gathering will take place during the Friday afternoon “War Room” prayer session on September 29. Join Aglow intercessors around the world in prayer whether you are at the conference or praying from home.
Pray for your nation. Release the power of God to break any assignments the wicked one has against your nation. Magnify the glory of God that His Presence will be known and manifest across your nation.
Israel - “Terrorism glorified in Israeli-Palestinian conflict”
- Hamas is an Islamist terrorist group that has vowed to eliminate Israel. Activities at a recent summer camp for children in Gaza included pretending to shoot “Zionist pigs” who won’t let them pray at the Al Aqsa mosque on Temple Mount. Their purpose for the summer camp is to cultivate the next generation of Palestinian terrorists.
- A soccer tournament was named after a Palestinian terrorist who killed two Israelis.
- A town square in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) is named after a Palestinian woman who led a massacre that killed 23 Israelis. In May 2017, a Palestinian women's center also honored her.
- In Gaza and the West Bank, children's programming, songs and TV programs, along with school curriculum, nurture a hatred for Israel and the Jewish people. Children are taught that the Jews have stolen the land from the Arab Palestinians and say that one day they will drive the Jews out of the land and reclaim it as the rightful owners.
- Pray for truth to penetrate the darkness and break through the evil propaganda.
- Pray for key people of influence to speak out regarding this situation.
- Pray for eyes to be opened and that sympathy for terrorists will cease. These murderous acts are committed against innocent people.
- Pray for salvation of souls. Only a heart-change and revelation from God will make a difference in this tumultuous part of the world.
- Pray for dreams and visions to reveal Jesus to all those in the Middle East!

What would you do? Where would you go? If you were limitless to influence and impact the world around you? The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me . . . Isaiah 61

Men of Issachar, Aglow International
If we partner with God, all things are possible. Nothing is impossible in heaven. What are the current “impossibilities” facing us today? Are we looking at them through the eyes of man? We must take the circumstances and renew our mindset in partnership with God. God desires the best for us, and He is a good Father. When He sees us, He sees all the limitless possibilities we can experience. We must come into the agreement of that truth to come into partnership with Him. (Excerpt from Men of Issachar Blog, Yesterday Is Gone)
- Declare, all things are possible with God.
- Lord, renew my mind to see the limitless possibilities You have for me.
- Men, join us for a special Men of Issachar gathering at the Aglow Global Conference on Saturday, September 30 from 4 – 6 PM.
Anti-Human Trafficking – Watch and Pray
Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? – Isaiah 58:6

- Pray for victims to be found and rescued. Pray that they would be physically loosed and given a safe place to become healed and whole.

- Pray for physical and emotional healing for trafficked victims. Proclaim healed hearts, healed bodies, and healed minds for those who have been set free.
