Draw Us Close to You, Lord
This is a recent Facebook post by Jane Hansen Hoyt. Follow Jane on Facebook
A common desire for just about everyone is to live a predictable, safe lifestyle. The unknown can sound exciting until is actually begins to take place in the things around us. It’s at that point that our human nature kicks in and desperately looks for the known and predictable.
Yet, God’s desire is for us to know Him in greater depth and breadth. For that reason, He will sometimes allow those unknown things to come into our lives to draw us towards Himself. He wants us to cling to the peace, the calm and the safety of His Presence in our lives, even in the midst of chaos.
This is a great time to focus, to step aside from the rush of news, from the sound of chaos, and from the things that tend to disturb our peace and let it all move us into a place of greater depth and breadth with the One who holds it all in the center of His will.
- Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10
- As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. Psalms 42:1
- While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
- Lord, I eagerly embrace the peace, calm and safety of life hidden with Christ in God. The chaos of the world is passing, and the future is fully in Your Hands. I long only for the enduring truth of Your Presence.
As we boldly declare the Word of the Lord and the prophetic promises He has given us, we shall see His words fulfilled with visible evidence. Our relationship with Him will deepen, our faith will enlarge, and our testimony will increase. We shall be healed and live in health.
- Lord, You Said . . . I am mantled with Kingdom-governmental authority to call Heaven into the nations of the world.
- Lord, You Said . . . sickness, poverty and fear have no place in me.
- Lord, You Said . . . I am a warrior and champion who partners with Heaven to see the return of Christ.
- Lord, You said . . . my faith makes me well. I can go in peace and be healed of ALL sickness. (Mark 5:34)
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.
There is much unrest in Israel after COVID lockdown and difficulties in forming unity and budget approvals in the coalition government. Pray for Heaven’s solutions to bring real answers for unity and blessing among the people of Israel.

Crush Chaos and Take Mountains
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

- Declare the Kingdom of Heaven!
- 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
