Father, We Want Your Presence in Aglow!
This is an excerpt from Jane’s recent letter. For more, go to visit To See His Glory
Aglow was birthed by the Spirit in 1967 and has continued to be led by the Spirit in the years since. One of our markers is being defined by His Presence in our midst. People are drawn to His Presence. People give into His Presence. Aglow is all about the Presence of God and making room for Him among us. Aglow is all about welcoming His Presence.
- Lord, cause us to be overwhelmed by a relentless passion for Your Presence!
- We decree that every Aglow gathering is marked by the Presence of God.
- We want God!
We Have Been Given a Scepter
At the Aglow Jubilee conference, Jane was presented with a scepter as a symbol of the favor, authority and Kingdom anointing upon Aglow International. We have walked in the favor of the Lord as He has extended His scepter towards us to release His goodness.
Now, God has given us a scepter, a scepter we can hold and use as a demonstration of His Kingdom authority in the earth. Upon receiving the scepter, Jane said, “I am going to use the end of this today to prophetically break, break, break any barrier over your life personally, over your lives as leaders, over this ministry.”
At that point the glass ceiling that has held us back from the fullness of everything that God has spoken was broken! Now, as we go forward, let us use that scepter to break through the glass ceiling that holds others back. This is a Kingdom assignment – to breakthrough for others and pull them through to the fullness of God.
- Lord, we lift the scepter of Your Presence, power and authority and break through that glass ceiling over the people of God in the earth!
- Lord, we lift the scepter and break through anything that holds Your people back from the fullness of Your glory!
- Lord, we lift the scepter to break through the bondages of deceit that blind people from receiving the truth of the gospel.
- Lord, we lift the scepter and break through to the greatest spiritual harvest ever known.
God Has Given You Air Supremacy!
The apostolic, prophetic, praying church around the world has now established air supremacy over the enemy. You have air supremacy! Now go deal with the enemy and relentlessly drop “bombs” from the Heavenlies on him until he is no longer able to resist you. – Dutch Sheets at the Aglow Jubilee Conference.
In aerial warfare, air supremacy is the highest level of dominance when one side holds complete control of the skies. God has given us this domination over the works of the darkness in the earth. Decree the Kingdom of Heaven into the nations! Drop spiritual “bombs” that defeat the works of darkness on earth. Drop spiritual “bombs” that open up ancient gates to welcome the King of Glory into nations.

Crush Chaos and Take Mountains – Dominion Prayer
God has given us spheres, territory, authority, and it is time to push out the boundaries of those spheres. From the beginning, God told us what dominion would look like and it was male and female. This is the army God is raising up! – Jane Hansen Hoyt, Aglow International President/CEO

- The new U. S. Embassy in Israel will be officially opened in Jerusalem on May 14, in time for Israel’s 70th anniversary celebrations. While is good news, it could create a volatile situation in the Land. Israel has begun nation-wide emergency preparedness exercises. IDF facilities around the country will hold emergency preparedness drills and civilians will practice fleeing to safe spaces during alarms. Pray that peace overcomes violence and attacks resulting from this historic decision.
- Amidst all the violence and hatred, a miracle of peace and brotherhood is taking place at One for Israel. For the past four years, they have had a master’s degree program to train pastors in Israel. Approximately half of those who studied with them have been Jewish, and the other half Arab. This is a living testimony of God’s covenant faithfulness to Israel and the power of the gospel to unite Jews & Arabs. Pray for this to increase and for their relationships to flourish.
