The called, aware and ready!
For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. When they say Peace and security,’ then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains come on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers, are not in the dark, for this day to overtake you like a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or the darkness. So then, we must not sleep, like the rest, but we must stay awake and be serious.
I Thessalonians 5:2-6 (HCSB)
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown.
Revelation 3:11 (NLT)
These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.
Revelation 17:14 (NKJV)
A Chosen and Called People
Note: This is an excerpt from a recent letter from Jane Hansen Hoyt, Aglow Int’l President/CEO. For the complete letter see Critical Mass Prayer Call for the U.S. Elections.
These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings: and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful. Revelation 17:14
We are living in interesting times. I have spoken before of the increased sense of insanity in the atmosphere. . . . I believe we are living in a time when the enemy is being drawn out! We are seeing the ripening of evil. . . . But, God looked ahead and determined to have a prepared people on earth to carry out His plans in this exact time frame in history. We are a chosen and called people…for such a time as this.
- We arise, Lord, as Your people who are prepared to carry out Your plans on earth.
- We declare that You, O Lord, are victorious! We overcome because You have overcome!
- Pray for an awakening throughout the Body of Christ to stand as His called, chosen and faithful ones.
Replacement theology teaches that the Jews are no longer God's chosen people. It is an erroneous belief that since the Jews rejected Jesus, the plans, purposes and blessings of God have been nullified and transferred from Israel (the land and people) to the Church. This error has been embraced for centuries. It is time for the deception to be exposed.
- We agree in prayer that the truth will be taught in seminaries, churches, and evangelical circles.
- Pray that the scriptures will come alive that refer to God’s unconditional, irrevocable covenant with Abraham, his descendants and the land of Israel. (Genesis 12:1-3 and 17:7,8)
- We pray for eyes to be opened and that repentance will come.
- As truth is embraced, pray for the building of the covenant relationship between Arab and Jewish believers in Israel as the fulfillment of the Ephesians 2 “One New Man” through the cross of Jesus.
- We pray for alignment and alliances between Jew and Gentile, “those who mere non-Jewish are now citizens together with God’s holy people.” Ephesians 2:19
- Lord, we ask You to raise the hedge of protection around all of Israel.
- Protect this Israel from satanic forces that are determined to destroy it and to discredit Your prophetic promises.
- Lord, let the world see the lie often perpetuated in the media that Israel is a terrorist aggressor and the Palestinians are victims.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love thee. Psalm 122:6 ASV
Transformation Opportunities – Limitless Influence and Impact
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
- This is a good time to look at the Transformation Team opportunities that are available for 2017. Ask the Lord to order your time and show you where you are called. Then, say, “Here I am! Send me!”
- 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 peoplewho 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.
- San Diego, California – November 11-- outreach during the US National Conference

Anti-Human Trafficking – Watch and Pray
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms… Therefore put on the full armor of God. Ephesians 6:12-13a
As we pray, it’s important to remember that our fight is not against people. We fight pimps and traffickers through our legal system, and we fight in prayer for all who are enslaved.
- Pray for the Truth of God to set buyers free. Many have heavy addictions to pornography and cannot be set free on their own. Pray for their deliverance and healing. Pray for freedom. Pray for restoration for them and their families.
- Pray for victims. Pray for freedom – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Pray for healing, wholeness and hope. Our God makes ways where there is no way! Proclaim this in your city!
- Pray for pimps. Pray they are freed from deception, and for a mighty healing and restoration. Pray for “Saul/Paul” experiences for pimps and traffickers in your community.
- Pray for vulnerable girls and boys in your community. God, how can I play a part in preventing trafficking in my community?
- Continue to pray for Rescue Freedom International as they rescue, restore, and empower those caught in slavery.
Persecuted Christians – International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, November 6
Sunday, November 6 is the International Day of Prayer for the persecuted Church. Christians around the world are facing persecution in unprecedented numbers. From merciless killing, destruction of churches and buildings, to being forced to denounce Jesus as their Lord, Christians are being stripped of the freedom to follow Christ in safety.
- Pray for Christians who are persecuted for following Christ and declaring His Lordship in their lives.
- Pray that God will protect believers in persecuted nations.
- Pray that suffering believers would see Christ in deeper ways. Show them Your glory, Lord.
- Pray that Christ would soften the hearts of their persecutors.
