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)
We Have Been Called With Great Purpose in the Earth!
As a Kingdom movement that is committed to bring Heaven’s plans to earth, Aglow continues to equip men and women globally to stand in the face of anti-Christ spirits that seek to destroy the seed planted long ago. Transformed, molded, and shaped for the future, we bring our inheritance into view as world systems collapse and the Government of God arises. Mantled with His Governmental authority, we confidently proclaim: We were born for this! – Jane Hansen Hoyt, President/CEO Aglow Int’l
- 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.

Men of Issachar, Aglow International
We may not understand everything that God is doing, but He does encourage us to believe what He has said. The prophetic and written Word are road maps to the completion of what He intends to do. The craziness of this chaotic season screams with voices and noises contrary to the soft, gentle, yet confident, voice of finality of the Father. If we focus on the former without upgrading to the latter, we will be tossed about, guided by our soul rather than our spirit. – Dave McDaniel, Men of Issachar, Aglow International Director. For the complete article, go here.
- Lord, silence the chaos of the world and help us to listen only to Your gentle yet confident voice.
- I will be Your sound of intentionality in the world, Father, to bring peace and confidence to those around me.
Men, to become part of Men of Issachar, Aglow International go here.
Anti-Human Trafficking – Watch and Pray
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” But for those entrapped in human trafficking that isn’t the case. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus and all HIS wonderful gifts this month, let’s remember labor and sex trafficking victims in prayer.
- As winter grows colder, more homeless people will engage in ‘survival sex.’ (Sex in exchange for food, clothing or shelter.) Pray for the basic needs of homeless and trafficking victims to be met.
- Pray that victims would know the peace and goodwill of Christ.
- At this time of year when many are lonely, there are a higher number of people seeking sex for sale. Pray for the buyers, that they would find freedom and wholeness in Christ.
Christians around the world are facing persecution in unprecedented numbers. Yet, in Hebrews 13:5 Jesus says, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
- Pray that suffering believers would see Christ in deeper ways. Show them Your glory, Lord.
- Pray that our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Lord will sense God’s abiding Presence in profound and tangible ways.
- Pray that the Presence of Christ in persecuted Christians would reveal the goodness and glory of God to their persecutors.
