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).

Eric Youngblood: When The Phone Is Like Kryptonite

“If Mad Men has taught me anything, it’s that phones are the worst.” Why would Sammy Rhodes say, sorry, “tweet” that? Don’t you know exactly what he means? And how come we break into exuberant elation on those rare moments when we’ve screwed up the courage to make a return phone call and it goes directly to voicemail?” What makes the Hallelujah chorus seem the ...

Steve Ellison: The Main Thing

We seem to have forgotten to keep the main thing in focus.  It seems to me that the most important command we have been given is found in Matthew 28:18-20 "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all ...

Marvelous News From Central High School

To Roy Exum:     With all the recent news of major dysfunctions within our educational system, I thought I might alert you to something better. About a year ago you ventured up Highway 58 to Central High School to represent your late grandfather, Roy McDonald, as he was honored as a Distinguished Alumnus during the annual Senior Day festivities. I sort of expected ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The DA’s Cold-Case Quest

It is clearly a job nobody can do for over an hour or two, but Neal Pinkston, working in hand with precise professionals from the county’s auditing department, is intent on doing the right thing. As I watched a revolving team of four people at a time open and study envelopes of autopsy photographs on Tuesday, the scene would have made a fascinating television documentary. But ...
