Prayer For These Times Conference Offered May 8-10

Saturday, April 5, 2014

The Prayer For These Times Conference will be May 8-10, featuring Mary Glazier.   

A Haida Indian born in Ketchikan, Ak., Ms. Glazier was nurtured in her early faith by the Salvation Army. In 1971, she received a life transforming baptism of the Holy Spirit and has since been a powerful instrument in the hands of God. Her ministry, Windwalkers International, was birthed by the Holy Spirit in 1990. An ordained minister, she is an active member of the Anchorage Evangelical Pastors Fellowship, a network of over 90 pastors in Anchorage. God has used her internationally to instruct and lead on the subject of spiritual warfare. She currently works with Cindy Jacobs and Chuck Pierce on the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network and on the Mission America National Committee. She also serves as an adviser for the International Reconciliation Coalition.

Ms. Glazier’s  ministry, originally given the name Intercessors of Alaska, began in 1990. Aglow International called upon her to "seek a battle strategy for the state" in response to the desperate need for a spiritual awakening. Suicide, alcoholism, rape, child abuse and family disintegration were rampant statewide. In founding Windwalkers, she was relying on the declaration of Psalm 18:10: "And He rode upon a cherub and flew; and He sped upon the wings of the wind" (NASB).
