Be Ready! Be Expectant! Be Filled!
Here are some thoughts from Jane Hansen-Hoyt’s FaceBook page. Follow Jane on FaceBook
God has been awakening us to the truth that Aglow is a great apostolic presence in the earth. We will be moving more fully into the plans God has for us in the earth. Be ready!
Are you filled with excitement and expectancy? I am and I hope you are, too. I feel that this is a year where the Body of Christ is blossoming. We will come forth in both strength and humility. It will come forth in YOU! Expect it!
The Holy Spirit has repeatedly brought to my mind this phrase, “YOU PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES; YOU ANOINT MY HEAD WITH OIL.” Psalm 23:5. He is ensuring you that in the midst of trouble, or in the midst of devastating news, He is present with you and He has prepared a table of richness, a table of satisfaction for you as things swirl around you. Sit down at His table. Be filled with His provision. He has set before you all that you will need. Feast with confidence.
- Lord, I present myself before You in expectancy of the fullness of Your glory and the fullness of Your plans. “May it be done to me according to Your word.” Luke 1:38
- Lord, I step into a great time of fruitfulness in You. “If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit.” John 15:7-8
- “God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!” Psalm 73:26
Summon the Nations!
Aglow International is called to take the Light of Jesus, to bring hope, and to build the Kingdom in all communities, cities, and nations
- I will whistle for them and gather them, for I will redeem them. And they shall increase as they once increased. – Zechariah 10:8 NKJV
- Look! You will summon nations you’ve never heard of. Nations who have never heard of you will come running to follow you because Yahweh, your God, the Holy One of Israel, has glorified you. – Isaiah 55:5 TPT
- Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you. – Habakkuk 1:5
- And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, just as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. – Matthew 25:32
- Pray for Aglow in your Region of the world to arise as a strength in the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
- Pray for nations where Aglow has not yet built a community of Kingdom believers. Lord, open the doors and resource Aglow to propel the Kingdom in these nations!
- Call nations into their Kingdom purpose, into the fullness of God’s Goodness and Love.
- Pray for fruit to burst forth where seeds of the Gospel have been planted.
Anti-Human Trafficking – Watch and Pray
Large public gatherings such as sporting events or busy shopping districts attract human traffickers to hunt for vulnerable people, especially young people, and children.
- Holy Spirit, open our eyes and give us discernment to see and help people who are vulnerable to traffickers.
- Pray for exposure of trafficking at events such as the Super Bowl football game or Mardi Gras parties.
- Pray that the Church will be unified and viewed as a valuable and necessary resource in this battle (John 17:23).
- Pray that traffickers and buyers will find their transactions interrupted and their wicked plans frustrated (Ps. 9:16, 10:15, 146:9). Pray they will see the reality of what they are doing and seek help (Phil. 2:3–4; 1 Cor. 6:18–20).
Prophetic Declarations – It Is Time!
Our prophetic words are our history given in advance. From the moment they are spoken, they belong to us and must become as real in our hearts as they are in the heart of God. As the prophetic word is spoken, see God standing in the future, speaking back to you in the present. He is telling you who you are becoming. Be encouraged!
An excerpt from Embrace Your Call
It is time. You do not live forever in the preparatory season, the forerunning season, the plowing season. You will reap if you do not faint. We are moving into the reaping season. We must be ready because God is saying, “It is time.” Go ahead and feed the river. Declare life over your river. Declare life over the water of your community. Declare it over your city, your state, your family, your prodigals, because God is going to heal the poisoned river and bring forth life. Throw Jehovah Rapha into the river that you live in, that surrounds you, and allow God to break the curse and bring the blessing because it is time.
- Lord, we declare with You, it is time for Your blessing!
- We decree that curses are broken off our land, off our nations, so that the fullness and blessing of Life can flourish.
- We call prodigals home! It is time!

A Note and A Prayer
Aglow is moving into her greatest Kingdom assignments. That is exciting. There may be some battles along the way as we move into the fullness of all that God has planned for us. Yet, a good battle is one that we win, and we will win each one. It is important that we understand these battles. One, there are spiritual battles. The wicked one doesn’t want Aglow to move into her greatest Kingdom assignments. He will oppose us fiercely. Yet, “greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Also, Jesus said, “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). So, rest in Him, rise to your place of authority in the Spirit, and overcome these spiritual battles with victory. Two, relationships get tested. The wicked one fears the strength of a unified ecclesia. So, love one another, trust one another, be open and honest, and do not allow room for offense. Three, our hearts may be tested. “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23). The next season flows from within our hearts. Let Christ be the guardian of your heart from within.
Lord, I lift up Aglow leaders and intercessors around the world. Thank You for the anointing of Your Spirit. Thank You for Your faithfulness to lead us by Your Spirit, to provide for everything we need, and to cause us to flourish. I declare strength upon each leader and intercessor. Let healing flow. Let encouragement fill their hearts. Give each one victory in every battle. Cause courage and hope to arise! Give rest in Your Presence and an overcoming spirit that flows from a deep, abiding faith in You. Bless Aglow as we go forward in You – not by might, not by power, but by Your Spirit, Almighty God!
God bless you as you pray,
