When Aglow International enters a city to hold a conference, many avenues of blessing are explored for that city, such as Gifts to the City and evangelism outreaches. Prayer Tours are now being organized for the host cities and surrounding areas. Prior to the 2010 US Conference in San Jose, California, a prayer tour was held in San Francsico. The Arise LA Prayer Tour was held preceeding the 2012 US Conference in Ontario, California.
Arise LA Prayer Tour
Days before the US Aglow conference in Ontario, California, a group of 93 Aglow intercessors united for the Arise LA Prayer Tour to pray and proclaim God’s Word over Los Angeles, the City of the Angels. The team traveled by bus praying at the LA Ports and Hollywood, which are strategic places of global influence. Prayer continued for God’s glory to arise in the Seven Spheres of Influence as graphically viewed from Griffith Park. The team prayed for a return to the righteous heritage of Los Angeles, remembering Azuza Street, Angelus Temple, the House on Bonnie Brae, and the Jesus Movement.
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16 Amplified Bible
The people will shout, “Grace! Grace!” Zechariah 4:7
For two days prior to the 2010 US Conference, a team of about 200 Aglow intercessors traveled by bus throughout the city of San Francisco praying at places of spiritual, historical, and governmental significance. Beginning with prayer at the Prayerbook Cross in Golden Gate Park, the team traveled to the 9th Court of Appeals, City Hall, and The Palace of the Legion of Honor. Prayer was also offered at the Castro District, Twin Peaks, Chinatown, The Tenderloin, Nob Hill, the Financial District, the Presidio, the Wharf, the University of San Francisco, the Holocaust Museum, for the victims of the San Bruno gas explosion, and at the Golden Gate Bridge where over 1,200 suicides have taken place since it was built in 1937.
It is by grace, not condemnation, that all will see the truth.
