The called, aware and ready!

desert webFor 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)

Purification

God is separating us. He is cleansing us and turning us to Himself in deeper ways.  There is a longing in our hearts for His Holiness and purity. When I speak of Holiness, I am not talking about legalism, religious activity that brings self-righteousness or some kind of self-effort. We understand that the whole Christian life is a life lived spontaneously before the Lord…because the life of the Lord is within us. Truly, “it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”  We trust that life. . . .  We speak of miracles, signs and wonders. They will flow out of our lives easily as we continue to allow the Spirit of God to further cleanse us from the world. He is forming a people for Himself, a people for His glory, a people of Holiness and a people who will carry the power of His glory in our beings. . . . My heart is bursting with longing to enter into this place with God. It is not a feeling of condemnation, but of exhilaration. God is cutting through the desert channel of my heart to pour more of Himself in. Will you join me?  (Jane Hansen Hoyt, excerpt from Sweet Waters)

  • Lord, pour more of Yourself into my heart.
  • Purify us as a people of holiness who carry the power of Your glory.
  • Release Your Spirit through us as people who are separated from the thoughts of this world to serve Your holy purposes.

Aglow Global Prayer Assignment 2017

Let us come boldly to the throne of grace, to obtain MERCY and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16). 

Aglow, this is our opportune time to stand before the Throne of Grace in the governmental authority we have been mantled with. We are committed to stand until the fullness of His Mercy and Grace have been poured upon the nations. Aglow, We Have An Assignment - Jane Hansen Hoyt

Israel  

In June, USA President Trump has the option to defer moving the US embassy to Jerusalem for another 6 months. Each president since the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act passed with overwhelming Congressional support has used this waiver. It is important that Jerusalem is officially recognized as the undivided capital of the State of Israel. Many believe that if the US Embassy moved to Jerusalem other nations would soon follow and move their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. There is much pressure for the President to continue the practice of deferring the move.

  • We pray that President Trump will not give in to intimidation.
  • We pray he will stand strong against any political spirit that opposes acknowledging Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.
  • Lord, give him wisdom, understanding and wise council regarding Israel.
  • We pray that You would stop any plans of retaliation against this decision being carried out.
  • We pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you. Psalm 122:6
