This is an excerpt from Jane’s letter, “A Turning Point”. For the complete letter, go to A Turning Point.
A few nights ago I was awakened in the darkened, wee hours of the morning with this empowering thought…
“Have great expectation! There is something God wants to do that will bring huge breakthroughs, in a mixture of areas, in a multitude of lives all around you.”
I feel that it is a time to see everything that comes to you as a vehicle of empowerment to move your faith forward in your journey to “come up higher.” Ephesians 1:11b-12a states that “He works all things after the counsel of His own will…. that we should be to the praise of His Glory.”
God is calling out to us to come up here so that He might reveal to us what He is about to do in the earth. Just as the word expectation was spoken to me in those early morning hours, I believe He is speaking this to Aglow because it is a time we are to live in great expectation of what is coming and to rule in the midst of every enemy!
- Lord, I expect breakthrough!
- Lord, You said we will rule in the midst of our enemy. We declare that everything that opposes Your purposes in the earth is brought low, and Your Name is lifted up.
- Lord, I expect more of Your power and glory than I’ve ever seen or experienced. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20
As we boldly declare the Word of the Lord and the prophetic promises He has given us, we shall see His words fulfilled. Our relationship with Him will deepen, and our faith will enlarge. Partner with God's heart and align with His prophetic words and intentions toward you.
- Lord, You said, my prophetic words must become as true in my heart as they are in Yours.
Crush Chaos and Take Mountains – Anti-Human Trafficking Awareness Day – January 11th
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
Crush Chaos — The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet. Romans 16:20
Take Mountains — Declare the Kingdom of Heaven! Give me this mountain! Joshua 14:12
Lord, bless us, enlarge us and empower us to take territory for Your Kingdom. May we always walk with your Hand of guidance and favor upon us. Crush evil as we walk in Your Presence and power and keep us from harm. May we carry Your blessing, demonstrate Your goodness and walk in Your love as we carry Your Name to subdue the works of darkness and release Your glory in the earth.
(Adapted from I Chronicles 4:10)
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
- Prayer breaks chains and gives favor that is supernatural. It enables rescue and puts people in the right place at the right time.
- Declare that the chaos, destruction and shame of human trafficking is crushed. Lord, let those who have been bound by human trafficking know You as their shield. Lift their heads in praise to Your glory (Psalm 3:3).
- January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Pray for an awakening that stirs people to action to stop the traffickers and help the victims of human trafficking.
- Within the USA: If you or someone you know is being forced to engage in any activity and cannot leave -- whether it is commercial sex, housework, farm work, construction, factory, retail, or restaurant work, or any other activity - call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888.
- Outside the USA: If you or someone you know is being forced to engage in any activity and cannot leave -- whether it is commercial sex, housework, farm work, construction, factory, retail, or restaurant work, or any other activity – call your local authorities or National Anti-Trafficking hotline number.
Apostolic Prophetic Watchmen Worldwide
We are apostolic-prophetic watchmen on the walls of the nations. As we battle, as we pray, as we stand in agreement with God for what He purposes to do in the earth, we are taking that position of authority to call Heaven down and to obliterate on earth the things that war against His Spirit, His intention, His purpose, and His calling in the earth. As we pray, we break open the way so that the prophetic word can be realized in people’s lives, in cities, and in nations.
- What does it mean to be an apostolic prophetic watchman? See Jane’s blog Because You Asked.
- What are some promises God has made to your nation? What are some areas where spiritual breakthrough is needed in your nation? Decree God’s promises and see His words fulfilled. Declare God’s Word as a weapon to break through any opposition to what He has said.
- Declare God’s Word over your nation, your Aglow group, and your family until you see evidence of breakthrough. “Strike the ground” with God’s promises, declaring, “Lord, You said!” (II Kings 13:15-19)
- Job 22:28 You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
- I Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.
