Christ is Our Source for All Things
This is an excerpt from Jane’s message, “If You Keep Silent”. For the complete message, see If You Keep Silent.
We are patient, not because we have received a power to be so, but because we have a Person who dwells within us. As we relax and let that Person live out of us, we will see humility. We will see love. We will see patience. We will see many things that we could never quite conjure up and certainly not sustain. We will see those things begin to be lived out of us in more consistency, in more compassion, in a clearer way.
- Jesus, increase my constant awareness of You living Your life through me.
- . . . Christ is all . . . Colossians 3:11-17
International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church – November 3, 2019
In 2019 the number of Christians worldwide who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ has risen approximately 14% over the numbers reported in 2018. One in nine Christians worldwide will experience a high level of persecution this year unless God intervenes. Those who live under such persecution are our brothers and sisters. They are our family in the household of Christian faith. We must pray for them with the same sense of urgency as when we pray for our natural families.
Here are five key words to remember as we pray for the Persecuted Church:
- Hope – Pray they are encouraged by their hope in Christ and His calling. Ephesians 1:18
- Strength – Pray they are strengthened by the power and comfort of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 3:16
- Love – Pray the deep love of Christ makes them unshakeable in their faith. Ephesians 3:17
- Fullness – Pray they abound in the love of Christ and fullness of God. Ephesians 3:19
- Fearless – Pray they are bold and fearless in their testimony of the gospel. Ephesians 6:19-20
God Has Given You Air Supremacy! Heaven to Earth Declarations to Propel the Kingdom Forward
The apostolic, prophetic, praying church around the world has now established air supremacy over the enemy. You have air supremacy! Now go deal with the enemy and relentlessly drop “bombs” from the Heavenlies on him until he is no longer able to resist you. – Dutch Sheets at the Aglow Jubilee Conference.
In aerial warfare, air supremacy is the highest level of dominance when one side holds complete control of the skies. As we are positioned with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6), decree the Kingdom of Heaven into the nations! Drop spiritual “bombs” of truth, righteousness and grace that defeat the works of darkness on earth.
- Lord, we declare You Name is glorious and majestic in all the earth! You, oh Lord, are exalted above every power and might and dominion. Everything that opposes You is crushed under Your foot, Mighty Savior. Everyone who seeks You, finds You and is lifted up in Your Presence. Jesus is Lord!
Ephesians 1:18-21 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
- Lord, thank You for raising us up as overcomers and seated us together in heavenly places in You! We celebrate the relationship, intimacy and power we have in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:6 He raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
- From this place in You and with You, we proclaim the life of the gospel, alignment with Your will and purpose in earth, and the Truth of Who You Are in our lives and in our nations.
Ephesians 6:10-13 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Crush Chaos and Take Mountains
God has given us spheres, territory, authority, and it is time to push out the boundaries of those spheres. From the beginning, God told us what dominion would look like and it was male and female. This is the army God is raising up! – Jane Hansen Hoyt, Aglow International President/CEO
Crush Chaos — The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet. Romans 16:20
Take Mountains — Declare the Kingdom of Heaven! Give me this mountain! Joshua 14:12
Lord, bless us, enlarge us and empower us to take territory for Your Kingdom. May we always walk with your Hand of guidance and favor upon us. Crush evil as we walk in Your Presence and power, and keep up from harm. May we carry Your blessing, demonstrate Your goodness and walk in Your love as we carry Your Name to subdue the works of darkness and release Your glory in the earth. (Adapted from I Chronicles 4:10)
Hong Kong – Crush the Chaos of Violent Protests and Release Spiritual Destiny
Protests in Hong Kong have become increasingly brutal. Those who are protesting Chinese government and the influence of Hong Kong on mainland China have used this to mislead people and turn the hearts of young people towards violence.
- Pray that hidden agendas of those who incite hostile protest is exposed.
- Pray for truth in media reports within Hong Kong, mainland China and the rest of the world.
- Lord, shine the Light of Your Truth on Hong Kong!
- Ask the Holy Spirit to break the deceptive influence that has pervaded the minds of young people in Hong Kong. Lord, captivate them by Your Truth, Your Love and Your purposes.
- Lord, give Your Church in Hong Kong strategies to bring Hong Kong back to the path of her destiny with China.
- Lord, You said that You are hovering over China in ways she has never seen before. Let Your hovering Presence set the captive free and bring peace and revelation of Jesus Christ.
- The righteous remnant of a nation carry the destiny of a nation. Lord, strengthen Your people to bring Hong Kong/China into the fullness of Your plans.
Apostolic Prophetic Watchmen Worldwide
We are apostolic-prophetic watchmen on the walls of the nations. As we battle, as we pray, as we stand in agreement with God for what He purposes to do in the earth, we are taking that position of authority to call Heaven down and to obliterate on earth the things that war against His Spirit, His intention, His purpose, and His calling in the earth. As we pray, we break open the way so that the prophetic word can be realized in people’s lives, in cities, and in nations.
- What does it mean to be an apostolic prophetic watchman? See Jane’s letter Because You Asked
- What are some promises God has made to your nation? What are some areas where spiritual breakthrough is needed in your nation? Decree God’s promises and see His words fulfilled. Declare God’s Word as a weapon to break through any opposition to what He has said.
- Job 22:28 You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
I Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare
