The Point of the Spear
He has positioned Aglow to be the point of the spear. – Dutch Sheets, 2017 Jubilee Conference
From Jane Hansen Hoyt: At our recent conference, Dutch Sheets said, "Aglow is a giant-killing organization." It is who we are! This is a time to break off false timidity that comes to cause us to keep our mouth shut. This is a time to rise up and move forward in courage and boldness.
- Declare the promises of God boldly over your life, your Aglow ministry and your nation.
- Release the sound of heaven to pierce the atmosphere of earth with the glorious purposes of God.
- Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. – Joshua 1:9

(These prayer points have been provided by The Voice of the Martyrs)
The church has not replaced God’s covenant with Israel and the Jews.
Romans 11:11-12, 15, 25 – I say then, have they (the Jews) stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. . . . Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! . . . For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? . . . For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
- Pray that Christians would be a true witness of Jesus.
- Pray that the veil would be lifted from the eyes of the Jewish people.
- Pray that the Church fully embraces the heart to call the Jews to the revelation of the Messiah.

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

- Ask the Lord which opportunities He wants you to embrace to bring the transforming truth of the gospel and the power of your testimony into the lives of people who need to encounter Christ.
- Ask Him for strategies to reach your neighborhood, your community and your nation.
- Pray for teams going throughout the world. Pray that lives are transformed by the demonstration of the gospel in word and deed.

Men Take Mountains and Women Crush Chaos
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel. – Genesis 3:15
The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet. – Romans 16:20
Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day, for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said. – Joshua 14:12
This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts. “Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’” – Zechariah 4:6-7
- Declare the power of Christ over the deception and chaos of the wicked one.
- Command every hindrance to heaven’s Kingdom on earth to be brought down.
