Know Him

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.


Come, Holy Spirit!

This is an excerpt of a prayer by Jane Hansen Hoyt at the Jerusalem Convocation 2019. To view the entire piece, see Look For The New

Continue to come Holy Spirit because there is going to be a fresh outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. We are not running on fumes from the last 50 years. We want a full tank of fresh, new, Holy Spirit oil. We know that is in Your heart as well…The same Holy Spirit is flowing out throughout this ministry. In all of the nations there is fresh oil. The light is brighter. The depth is deeper. The truth is explosive. Continue to come Holy Spirit!

  • Lord, increase our hunger and anticipation of a fresh outpouring of Your Holy Spirit – in our lives, in our Aglow groups, in our nations.
  • Lord, pour fresh oil of Your Spirit throughout my nation!
  • Let Your Truth burst into the radiance of Your Presence in me, through me!
