Flood Update (excerpted from Parker Knox's Midweek Update)


Vol. 11, No. 38; Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011
[Parker Knox has a regular email update for Pierre/Ft. Pierre residents and former residents.  Last week's offering covered 'what's new with the flood' and some of those portions are excerpted below. Click on the link above to view the entire Update, and to subscribe or review the Archives.]
A two-month flood, they said? Make that three or more

JULY 14: A new type of plastic covering is being used for the levees. Plastic is used to cover the levees and protect further damage. Pierre city engineer John Childs said some wear and tear of the plastic coverings is to be expected. He said maintenance of the levees is a daily process. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 16: With a reduction in water releases coming out of Lake Oahe, the Department of Game, Fish and Parks reopened the boat ramp on Hipple Lake at Farm Island Recreation Area. At the same time Gov. Daugaard modified the boating ban that was previously put in place on upper Lake Sharpe. Boating was again allowed on Hipple Lake at Farm Island and also in the main channel of the river from the Farm Island causeway downstream to Big Bend Dam. However, to continue protecting levees, homes and other private property, the upper reaches of Lake Sharpe from Oahe Dam itself downstream to the Farm Island causeway remained closed to boating. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 21: City administrator Leon Schochenmaier told city commissioners that outflows from the reservoir have now exceeded the inflows. He said that has meant less water to deal with. Crews continued to work daily on issues such as pumping storm water from city streets. Schochenmaier said storm sewers will remain plugged until the water level goes down further. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 22: Flood relief funds amounting to $114,400 were distributed from a fund established by First Natinal Bank. Bank president Craig Davis said funds were distributed during a three-meeting process and that everyone who applied when the funds were available received some money. There were 227 respondents, about 200 of them being families. Davis said the bank's goal was to wait to provide the money for recovery, but many of those receiving the money needed it now. The initial funds included $100,000 provided by the family of former Gov. Frank Farrar, which owns the bank, and $10,000 from Avera Health. The fund remains open for additional contributions. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 22: Downtown Pierre literally rocked on Friday night, July 22, as an estimated $33,000 was raised during The Rockin' on the River benefit concert and celebrate sponsored by the Historic Downtown Pierre Association. Association president Scott Cameron said 2,000 wrist bands, needed to purchase alcohol, were sold by 11 p.m., so the attendance was at least that. Modern Woodmen will also match some of the funds raised. The proceeds will go to the Oahe Flood Relief Fund established by the Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce at BankWest. Dance-goers simply ignored the sandbags that still line Pierre Street and Dakota Avenue and the stairsteps that enable people to get up, over and down the walls of sandbags. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 23: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) rejected South Dakota's request for individual assistance programs to help residents impacted by record flooding. Gov. Daugaard called the action disappointing. He said the denial came in a letter from FEMA administrator Craig Fugate, who said damage to homes and businesses fell short of the severity and magnitude needed to warrant federal assistance. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 25: American Legion Post 8 received a $5,000 grant from the American Legion National Emergency Fund, which provides grants to Legion posts harmed by natural disasters. The check was presented to Post 8 commander Nick Dooley from District 10 commander Royce Loesch. Post 8's American Legion cabin at the foot of Pierre Street has been surrounded by Missouri River flood waters on three sides since the flooding began in May. No access has been allowed to the building, and Post 8's lounge was moved to the former Mesa's Diner location on North Harrison Avenue for the duration of the flood. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 26: Capital Area United Way presented checks of $6,000 to Pierre Area Referral Service and $1,000 to the Community & Youth Involved Center in Fort Pierre. The donations will be used by those agencies to help those in need. United Way executive director Gloria Hanson said her organization understands that many of its member agencies are running low on funds helping those impacted by the flood. Dan Lusk, United Way board president, said United Way has been involved in flood relief since the first days of the flood. He said the group provided another $1,000 to help provide meals and other services to volunteers. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

JULY 29: Here are some of the key dates, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, for decreases in water releases and elevation from Oahe Dam and the reservoir. The dates are part of the floodwater plan as released Friday by the Corps. While the dam releases, measured in cubic feet per second (cfs), do not fall every day, the reservoir elevation is dropping one or two tenths of a foot every day. The Corps cautions that the numbers could change depending on rainfall or other factors. (News courtesy "Today's KCCR News.")

Date      Dam Releases  Reservoir Elevation
August 3       130,000 cfs        1617.2 feet
August 16     125,000 cfs        1615.0 feet
August 17     120,000 cfs        1614.8 feet
August 18     115,000 cfs        1614.7 feet
August 19     110,000 cfs        1614.5 feet
August 20     105,000 cfs        1614.4 feet
August 21     100,000 cfs        1614.3 feet
August 22       95,000 cfs        1614.2 feet

September 14 65,000 cfs        1611.8 feet
September 16 60,000 cfs        1611.5 feet
September 18 55,000 cfs        1611.1 feet
September 20 50,000 cfs        1610.9 feet

September 26 35,000 cfs        1610.4 feet
September 28 30,000 cfs        1610.3 feet
September 30 30,000 cfs        1610.3 feet

JULY 30: Don't expect the flood waters to go down as quickly as they went up. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says as the flood water goes down in Pierre-Fort Pierre, it will be more gradual than it was when it came out of the river banks in May. Jody Farhat of the Corps’ Omaha office says the decrease will be more orderly as water from the flood plain flows back into the river. She says the drop will not be as dramatic visually as it was when the water rose at the flood's start. On Saturday, the water releases from the Oahe Dam were reduced from 140,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 135,000 cfs. The releases will drop to 130,000 on Wednesday and will remain there until Aug. 16 before decreasing again. The releases will reach 85,000 cfs, the point where the Corps says the water will be back in its banks, Aug. 24 and will eventually be at 30,000 cfs by Sept. 30. At the same time, the elevation of the Oahe reservoir continues to drop about a tenth of a foot each day. On Saturday, the elevation was 1617.7 feet and will be at 1617.6 feet Sunday. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

AUG. 2: Barricades and access checkpoints that have guarded Pierre neighborhoods most in danger of flooding are coming down effective Friday. They were first installed in late May and early June to protect homes within the inundation zones. Law enforcement helped control access to those areas, allowing in only residents who remained in the neighborhoods or who had evacuated and wanted to check on their properties. With water releases scheduled to keep going down, city officials in Pierre said they understand more people want to go back to their properties to start the cleanup. While there will be no further checkpoints, Police Chief Bob Grandpre said law enforcement will continue to provide security for the neighborhoods. Residents who live there are also asked to keep their credentials in case they are needed again. Officials cautioned that, just because checkpoints are coming down, people should not move back into their homes yet. Officials said there is still too much water behind the levees. Also people who do not live in the impacted neighborhoods or who are there to help with the cleanup are asked to stay away and not impede the work of others. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")

AUG. 3: Mayor Gill and Mayor Tidball are working on a series of clean-up days, the first of which is set for Saturday, Aug. 27. Gill said that, by both cities working together, resources can be shared. More details on this first clean-up event will be announced later. Gill said there will be more such clean-up days as the floodwaters continue to recede. (News courtesy of "Today's KCCR News.")


Homeowners in the Pierre area have fought off the rising river for two months, and for a handful of residents the fight continues on Frontier Road north of Fort Pierre.

The Sanchez family has spent almost every day this summer in a boat, but they never wanted their boat rides to be to their home surrounded by the Missouri River. "It was May 25 when we first got word that we were going to need to be out of our homes for six to eight weeks. It's now July 25. It's been eight weeks, and you can tell the water is still up," homeowner Tiffany Sanchez said.

The river has swallowed up 22 homes on Frontier Road, and almost three feet of water remains in many of the houses. Sanchez and her family live in one of five homes on the street that are still pumping water from behind massive sandbag walls. "Most of us want to come back, the five are planning on coming back, the other 20 are hoping and praying the water goes down so that they can come back," Sanchez said.

The Sanchezes have allowed water to fill their crawlspace to keep it from collapsing, and a temporary power grid inside the garage has been set up to provide electricity for the pumps to keep the water away from the house. So far it's working, but it hasn't been easy to maintain for two months. "When it rains, you stress. When the power goes out, you stress. It's the middle of the night, and you're coming out here, getting in a boat, trying to go out and switch your pumps over from the power to gas generators," Sanchez said.

The most frustrating part is that all the homeowners in the development thought the water would be down by now, but the Corps of Engineers hasn't given any clear schedule for ending this flood.

"We just don't know, and that's what's so trying. I said we feel like we're hostage to them because we can't move forward because we don't know when we can move forward," Sanchez said.

But they still consider themselves lucky because no one on the street has been hurt, and everyone is trying to keep their spirits up even though the water remains high.

"We've had a lousy summer, and it's really not been ideal, but we're all alive, we're all still kicking, and this we'll survive. But it's hard; it's been trying," Sanchez said.

A trying time that's now been a two-month disaster.


Two different financial funds designed to help flood recovery victims have been established by the Oahe Long-Term Disaster Recovery Committee.

The Emergency/Immediate Needs Fund will help with rent/mortgage assistance, food/goods/household items and direct assistance. Meanwhile, the Long-Term Flood Recovery Needs Fund will help with rebuilding assistance such as construction materials and repairs.

Financial donations given for the Long-Term Recovery Needs Fund will be used to match other possible available national funds. The recovery team will look to national, regional and local funding sources to help provide relief and restoration throughout the Pierre-Ft. Pierre area. There are no administrative fees with either of these funds, so all money will go back into the community as flood relief.

How to donate:
To donate to the Emergency/Immediate Needs Fund send contributions payable to:
Pierre Area Referral Service
2520 E. Franklin Street
Pierre, SD 57501

To donate to the Oahe Long-Term Recovery Needs Fund your contributions payable to:
Oahe Flood Relief Fund
c/o PO Box 548
Pierre, SD 57501

Donations can also be made at any BankWest location in South Dakota or donate online at https://www.bankwest-sd.com/

Donations to the funds are tax deductible and 100% of donations will go to flood recovery efforts in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area.

BURNING: Pierre Aglow Newsletter February 2011 - A


Aglow International is a trans-denominational organization of Christian women and men. An estimated 200,000 people meet each month through Aglow fellowships like ours at the South Dakota Women's Prison.

Welcome, as we share the warmth of the Holy Spirit and our friendship with the Lord and each other. If this newsletter is too “wordy” for you, please don’t give up. Think paragraph, not page.


“BURNING” will include a regular feature with an important prophetic word that will be encouraging to you. This month, Cindy Jacobs records the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elder’s “2011 Word of the Lord” so that we may focus our prayers.

Are you a ‘forerunner’? The first one in your family or your cellblock to turn your heart to Jesus? Mike Bickle outlines the second “commitment of a forerunner” in the next post below.

Time to Laugh (Ecclesiastes 3:4)

A pastor, known for his lengthy sermons, noticed a man get up and leave during the middle of his message. The man returned just before the conclusion of the service. Afterwards the pastor asked the man where he had gone.

"I went to get a haircut," was the reply.

"But," said the pastor,

"why didn't you do that before the service?"

"Because," the gentleman said, "I didn't need one then."


How He Loves by John Mark Macmillan (sung by Kim Walker/Jesus Culture)
He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricane - I am a tree Bending beneath
The weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden
I am unaware of
These afflictions eclipsed by glory
I realize just how beautiful You are
And how great Your affections are for me

He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us so

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean we're all sinking
So Heaven meets earth
Like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way that

He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us so

Commitment TWO: from ‘Seven Commitments of a Forerunner’
by Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer, Kansas City, MO

[You, too, can commit to the ‘forerunner’ ministry. In the next months, we’ll publish the remaining ‘Commitments.’ ]

“God is beginning to prepare forerunners from many different streams in the Body of Christ worldwide… The forerunner ministry is not reserved for some elite group—it is a calling available to any who are willing to prepare for it. --Forerunners Proclaiming the Coming of Jesus


A. We must cooperate with the Spirit so that we may walk in the intimacy and power that the Scripture promises. One way to do this is to fast weekly. Fasting is, by definition, abstaining from food.

B. Jesus said, “When you fast,” implying that fasting occurs regularly in a disciple’s life. 17When you fast… 18your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. (Mt. 6:17-18)

C. Jesus promised that the Father rewards fasting. This proclamation alone makes fasting important. Some of the rewards are external, as our circumstances are touched by God’s power. Some of the

rewards are internal, as our hearts encounter Him in new depth. The idea that fasting changes us internally is new to some. It tenderizes our hearts. God gives grace to fast to any who ask.

D. I urge people to fast at least one day a week. Two days a week is better. It is a false notion that fasting is extreme Christianity and is optional. Fasting is basic to the Christian life. There are exceptions: those pregnant or who have health problems should consult a doctor before fasting.


A. We fast to experience more of God’s power in our ministry. When the disciples could not set a demonized boy free, Jesus told them that that kind of demon could not go out except by prayer and fasting (Mt. 17:21). Many who led revivals fasted regularly, e.g. John Wesley, George Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, and Charles Finney. John G. Lake (1870–1935) sought God with much prayer and fasting. God released powerful miracles through him. In South Africa, within a five-year period, he witnessed 500,000 healings and led many thousands to Jesus.

B. We fast for prophetic revelation of the end times. Daniel sought God with fasting and prayer and received prophetic insight into God’s end-time plan (Dan. 9:1-3, 20-23; 10:1-3, 12-14).

C. We fast for the fulfillment of God’s promises to our family, city, or nation. The Lord has plans and promises for each family, city, and nation. We contend in prayer and fasting for their fulfillment as Daniel did for the fulfillment of God’s promise for Jerusalem (Dan. 9:1-3; 10:1-4).

D. We fast to stop a crisis (individual/national). Mordecai and Esther called a fast to cry out to God to reverse a national crisis—the imminent destruction of the Jewish people (Esth. 4:1-3; 16).

E. We fast for protection. Before Ezra led a group back to Israel to help rebuild their nation, he fasted and prayed to God for protection on the journey because of the danger (Ezra 8:21-23).

F. We fast for direction. Throughout the NT, the church fasted for supernatural wisdom and direction. Paul and others fasted and prayed for direction for their ministry (Acts 13:1-2).

Mike Bickle: Seven Types of Fasts in Scripture (continued)

G. We fast to grow in intimacy with Jesus (we refer to this as the Bridegroom fast, Mt. 9:15). Jesus said that after His death the apostles would mourn His absence and would fast out of desire for Him. This fast is motivated by the desire to encounter Jesus, rather than for power in ministry.

14Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast?” 15And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of

the bridegroom mourn as

long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.” (Mt. 9:14-15)

H. Fasting before our Bridegroom God is a catalyst to speed up the depth and the measure in which we receive from the Lord. Fasting positions our hearts to be expanded as we encounter Jesus. Our spiritual capacity to receive from God increases. We do not fast to motivate God to love us, but to receive the affection that He already has for us—it is not to move His heart, but ours.

I. Fasting is always voluntary. The level at which a person fasts from food should be determined according to age and with regard to various physical limitations. Those with an illness or with any history of an eating disorder should not fast except in consultation with their doctor. Minors are discouraged from fasting food. Minors who desire to fast are encouraged to consider non-food abstentions, such as TV, movies, internet surfing, video games, and other entertainment.

2011 ACPE Word of the Lord

Compiled by Cindy Jacobs, ACPE Convening Apostle, Generals International; Email: generals@generals.org

[As Steve Schultz, (Elijahlist), has said, “Prophets see what can be or what will be. God makes the call, depending on our response to the call to pray, obey, repent, and cooperate with the things of God.” Let’s make it a priority to cooperate with God this year. – Pierre Aglow]

Each year, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders (ACPE) meets to seek the Lord for the prophetic word. This is a team of respected prophets who have the conviction that they are an Acts 13:1-3 model. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit giving the word as a consensus among the group and not just to one prophet. So, even though this is a compilation of the prophecies that we have each brought to the round table meeting, it was the general consensus of the ACPE members that the Holy Spirit was speaking the following prophetic words to us.

The ACPE has met now since 1999. This year, for the first time, we invited a group of emerging young leaders to join us. As a result, we probably had the most powerful time of seeking the Lord that we have ever known. At the end of the meeting, a time of impartation took place.

While we are calling this a prophecy for 2011, it is to be understood that the time frames for the fulfillment of prophecies cannot only be confined to a calendar year period, thus this constitutes more of a seasonal prophetic word.

It is also a given that, in some cases, the obedience of the people to respond can either delay, change, or alter what we have seen by the Spirit during this time.

The Year of Transitions: This will either be a year of open heavens or a year of the perfect storm.

The number 11 has the Biblical meaning of transitions. 2011 is the year where we are transitioning from one place to another. Where we will end up at the end of this time depends, in many regards, on how we respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

2011 will be a year of great pressure and stress, particularly, the first three months when it will seem as if we are in a toe-to-toe battle with the forces of evil.

This is a Tipping Point Year: If, in the middle of the pressure of the season, we faint and lose heart, the scale will tip away from us and there is a possibility of great loss and defeat.

The Year of the Straits: The number 11 can be likened to places in the earth such as the Straits of Gibraltar between Spain and Morocco. We will, at times, feel constricted, but the narrowing of the way will only cause us to go to the new place that God has for us in the season if we do not fail the test during the pressure.

The Birth Canal: Another analogy that the Lord gave us was the number 11 is like a birth canal. The baby being born is going from the comfort of the womb to the stress and discomfort of being born into a new, large life.

Dreaming Dreams: Joseph shared his dreams with his 11 brothers; represented by 11 stars in Genesis 37:9 and it caused great relational stress. God will pour out a season of dreams and visions this year even among the very young. Watch out for relational stress and keep your heart right in the middle of it.

The Year of Great Expectations: Expect the unexpected in this coming year.

Hebrews 11:11 is key: By faith, Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.

Expect a miracle! God wants to break the barrenness in your life of hope deferred. Many have given up on their dreams and downsized what they believe for because of the times. God's Kingdom is an ever-increasing Kingdom and He is for advance and not retreat.

This is not a time to compromise what God has said to you, but rather to believe that all things are possible. God is not a man that He would lie. If He said he would do something, He has not changed His mind.

A Time of Preparation, Going Deeper into God and Intimacy: New assignments will be passed out in this year of transition for those who do not draw back in the season of testing and fire. Go deeper in God and draw refreshing from His presence and you will make it to your new place of advancement and anointing.

Proverbs 20:5: Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart; a wise person draws from the well within.

Creative Miracles: The level of the miraculous will increase with the Creator loosing miracles of creation that will directly oppose the spirits of humanism and intellectualism.

The Restoration of the Tabernacle of David: Great emphasis will be upon worship again this year. Worship is the key! Many new 24-hour houses of worship will spring up across the world and result in an open heaven over nations and many souls saved. It is harvest time!

Acts 15:16-17: After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My Name, says the Lord who does all things.

Great Harvest of those in the Arts/Entertainment Field: Extraordinary moves of God will occur in the entertainment and motion picture industry. Bold, new, unashamed voices will arise and many will listen to their testimonies.

Word for the United States: The nation hangs in the balance and this is not a time to grow weary of praying and acting on behalf of righteousness and justice. Don't let the pressure of the season cause you to retreat into entertainment rather than standing on top of what is happening around you.

We must watch for terrorist attacks as many are having dreams and visions of coming attacks.

One of the illustrations given to us was the phrase, "Are you ready to rumble?" This is used among wrestling aficionados as the match begins. It does more than alert the contestants that the match will start; it also creates an excited expectation in the crowd. God is asking the Christians in America today, "Are you ready to rumble?" The game is at hand and there needs to be a climax of excitement as we anticipate God's next move in the land.

2011 is one of the most critical years in the nation's history and the foundations are burning and are in danger of being destroyed. We must fast and pray and take extraordinary measures to "rumble" both the heavens and the earth.

The Eleventh Hour 11-11-11: This date will have a special significance in this "eleventh hour" time frame.

John 11:11 says: Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep, but I go that I may awaken him from slumber.

The Mayflower Compact was signed on 11-11, 1620 and God is looking for a new generation of reformers who will make a covenant with God and others to stand and fight to awaken this nation in this dire moment of history.

Proverbs 11:11: By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

World: There is a worldwide student-led volunteer movement being birthed across the face of the earth. Satan is going to try and start wars such as he did when the first student volunteer movement started around the turn of the 20th century. World War I effectually shut down the movement as students went to war at times against each other. We must pray against the starting of a third world war, as satan wants to escalate world events for His purposes.

Psalm 110:3: In the day of Your power your youth shall be volunteers.

Korea: Particular prayer needs to take place for Korea as one of the greatest missions movements is destined to come out of this nation that will go to the ends of the earth.

We also strongly felt that President Lee should stand firm against North Korea's aggression.

Middle East: A more widespread persecution will arise against the Believers if we do not begin to intercede for the Middle East. However, there will be a move of God of the youth in nations such as Syria, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia who will not love their lives unto death.

Economy: We must intercede against hyperinflation that will strangle the ability of people of give to world missions.

Intellectual Properties: A great release of new wealth will come from ideas given from God in the form of intellectual properties. A new creative anointing of ideas for those who will use the wealth for the advancement of God's Kingdom.

Children: We are on the verge of a great Children's Awakening that will span the globe. Child evangelists will begin to preach in churches and large arenas and thousand will be saved and healed.

From ‘The Vine’ church in St. Ives, UK (http://www.thevine-tives.org.uk/singjoy/Prophecy_Leaflet_UD.pdf)

• Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. (1 Cor 14:1)

• Now, about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. (1 Cor 12:1)

• …. To another, miraculous powers, to another prophecy (1 Cor 12:10)

• And to the Church, God has appointed, first of all, apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those who have gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. (1 Cor 12:28)

• Are you all apostles? Are we all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? (1 Cor 12:29)

• If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. (1 Cor 13:2)

• And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Cor 13:13)

• Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy (1 Cor 14:4)

• But everyone who prophecies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort (1 Cor 14:3)

• He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophecies edifies the church (1 Cor 14:4)

• I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than he who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified. (1 Cor 14:5)

• Do not put out the Spirit’s fire (1 Thess 5:19)

• Do not treat prophecies with contempt (1 Thee 5:20)

• Test everything. Hold onto the good. (1 Thess 5:21)

All prophecy should be tested by the Holy Spirit and by God’s prophet is infallible or equal in authority to the Bible. Here are some good guidelines for handling prophetic ministry:

* Don’t stifle or despise prophecy, but test it. (1 Thess 5:19-22) Though the prophecy may come in words or in a style of delivery which is not your choice, or through a person to whom you may not relate well, consider their words as instruction from God (1 Peter 4:11)

* Does the prophecy conform to Scripture? The Spirit of God will always agree with His previous revelation on the Bible.

* Does the prophecy “ring true “with you? (John 10:2-5) Usually, a prophetic word will confirm what God has already spoken to you in various ways. It will confirm in you a certain direction and build your faith.

* If prophecy contains prediction, is it becoming reality? If there are factual elements which can be verified, are they accurate?

* Will the prophecy bear good fruit in your life? It is the principle of Scripture that a tree is judged by its fruit (Luke 6:43-45). If the prophecy is from the Holy Spirit, it will serve to glorify Jesus by producing good fruit in your life.

* Wait on God for confirmation and clarity. Sometimes a prophetic word requires further guidance regarding interpretation and timing. Pray about it and seek guidance from the Bible and from those who are mature in the Lord. The latter are the two primary means of guidance from God. Revelation about a situation does not automatically supply the power to change it. Pray for further confirmation, especially where the prophecy involves major change or impact on your life. Remember that prophecy is a diving board from which you plunge into a pool of prayer. If you are not sure about a prophecy, put it on the shelf for the time being. God will confirm it to you.

* When the interpretation is clear, act in faith. If you agree that the word is from God, pray that He will fulfill the prophecy in your life. Have an attitude of expectancy

The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 5, 2011.  You are challenged to Prayer Walk on the State Capitol Grounds in Pierre on that day at any time between 6:00 am and 8:15 pm, but especially on the hour. (No other event is planned for the Pierre area, as far as we know, so Pierre Aglow respectfully invites you to join in a Prayer Walk observance of the National Day of Prayer.)

Thankfully, the snow is nearly gone, and we are praying for a warm, sunny day.  Can we cover the State Capitol and our country in prayer on the National Day of Prayer, at every hour on the hour? If you will be able to participate, please register yourself or your group by commenting on this blog site or on the Facebook event page.  Indicate your name/the group name and the time you will pray.

A limited number of Prayer Guides will be available at the entrance of Lutheran Memorial Church, across from the Capitol on the west side.

Please be respectful of our state workers and pray quietly or silently. Also, please stay on the sidewalks. If you are drawn to go into the Capitol building, please pray silently there.
The National Day of Prayer 2011 Theme Video will challenge you to lift up our nation every day.

About the National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

In accordance with Biblical truth, the National Day of Prayer Task Force seeks to:
  • Mobilize and encourage personal and corporate prayer, regardless of current issues and positions (Colossians 4:2, Romans 12:12, Matthew 18:19-20, Joel 2:13-16, II Chronicles 7:14)
  • Preserve America’s Christian heritage and defend the religious freedoms granted by the Constitution (Deuteronomy 6:6-8, Proverbs 14:34)
  • Emphasize prayer for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family (I Timothy 2:1-6)
  • Foster unity within the Christian Church (Psalm 133:1, Ephesians 4:11-13)

                            burning                     e PIERRE AGLOW NEWSLETTER NO. 1, JANUARY 2011

Aglow’s theme verse is Romans 12:11 “Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.”

Welcome, as we share the warmth of the Holy Spirit and our friendship with the Lord and each other in this, our first ever newsletter issue!

A reliable source (my husband Merlyn) assures us that this has way too many words. Don’t give up – we’ll try to break it up into manageable chunks. Please take it in small amounts, a paragraph or a page at a time.


“BURNING” will include a regular feature with an important prophetic word that will be encouraging to you. This month, Bill Yount’s word for “God’s treasures who are locked up” appears on pages 3-4.

Are you a ‘forerunner’? The first one in your family or your cellblock to turn your heart to Jesus? Mike Bickle outlines the first of seven commitments of a forerunner on page 2.

time to laugh (Ecclesiastes 3:4)

I always do my exercises regularly in the morning. Immediately after waking I sternly say to myself, "Ready, now. Up. Down. Up. Down." And after two strenuous minutes I tell myself, "Okay, now try the other eyelid. "
Forever, written by Chris Tomlin and performed by Michael W. Smith

Give thanks to the Lord,
Our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise

With a mighty hand and outstretched arm
His love endures forever
For the life that's been reborn
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise

Forever God is faithful
Forever God is strong
Forever God is with us
Forever and ever, forever (2X)

From the rising to the setting sun
His love endures forever
By the grace of God we will carry on
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise

Commitment One: from ‘Seven Commitments of a Forerunner’
Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer

[You, too, can commit to the ‘forerunner’ ministry. In the next months, we’ll publish the remaining six ‘Commitments.’ - Pierre Aglow]

“God is beginning to prepare forerunners from many different streams in the Body of Christ worldwide. These forerunners will function in many different ways. They include those called as evangelists, pastors, teachers, media missionaries, artists, singers, musicians, actors, writers, and those in the marketplace. Many will focus on making disciples by leading small groups in their church, university, or workplace. Some homeschooling moms are effective forerunners, teaching their children about Jesus’ second coming and its implications. The forerunner ministry is not reserved for some elite group—it is a calling available to any who are willing to prepare for it. --Forerunners Proclaiming the Coming of Jesus


A. Prayer has different expressions, such as devotional prayer (includes prayer-reading the Word and fellowshipping with the

Spirit to grow in intimacy with God), intercession for revival and justice, providing prayer covering for individuals, and praying for the sick. By praying in these different ways, we can encounter God, do the works of the kingdom, and change the world.

B. A consistent prayer life is essential to the forerunner ministry – only through a lifestyle of prayer can we receive the fullness of what God has provided for us. Prayer is essential, because it causes our spirits to be energized, releases God’s blessing on our circumstances, and results in real changes in the Church, the nations, and society.

C. Prayer connects us with God. It empowers us to love God (first commandment), causing us to overflow in love for others (second commandment). We love others better as we encounter God.

D. We can strengthen our prayer life in three ways: set a schedule for regular prayer times, make a prayer list, and have a right view of God. A schedule establishes “when” we will pray. A prayer list gives us focus on“what” to pray. A right view of God causes us to “want” to pray.

E. I use several prayer lists: [Below, a list of prayer points from the word F-E-L-L-O-W-S-H-I-P.]:

F - Fear of God: Father, release the spirit of the fear of God into my heart (Ps. 86:11)

E - Endurance (perseverance): Strengthen my spirit with endurance to do Your will (Col. 1:11)

L - Love: Father, pour out Your love into my heart (Phil. 1:9)

L - Light of glory: Father, let me see the light of Your glory (Acts 22:6-11; Ex. 33:18; Ps. 4:6)

O - One thing life focus: I choose to be a person of one thing, who sits at Your feet (Ps. 27:4)

W - Count me worthy: Strengthen me to have a worthy response to God in my life (2 Thes. 1:11)

S - Speech: Father, set a guard over my lips and free me from sinful speech (Eph. 4:29; Ps. 141:3)

H - Humility: Jesus, I want to learn from You how to walk in lowliness (Mt. 11:29)

I - Insight unto intimacy (wisdom): Give me insight into Your Word, will, and ways (Col. 1:9)

P - Peace and Joy: Strengthen my heart with peace and joy that overpower fear (Phil. 4:7)
Dec 22, 2001
-- A Word to the Church by Bill Yount, Hagerstown, MD Bill's email: blowtheshofar@juno.com

It was late and I was tired, wanting to go to sleep, but God wanted to talk; it was about midnight, but it dawned on me that God does not sleep. His question made me restless. "Bill, where on earth does man keep his most priceless treasures and valuables?" I said, "Lord, usually these treasures like gold, silver, diamonds and precious jewels are kept locked up somewhere out of sight with usually guards and security to keep them under lock and key."

God spoke. “Like man, My most valuable treasures on earth are also locked up."




I then saw Jesus standing in front of seemingly thousands of prisons and jails. The Lord said, "These have almost been destroyed by the enemy, but these ones have the greatest potential to be used and to bring forth glory to my name. Tell MY people, I am going this hour to the prisons to activate the gifts and callings that lie dormant in these lives that were given before the foundation of the earth. Out from these walls will come forth an Army of spiritual giants who will have power to literally kick down the gates of Hell and overcome satanic powers that are holding many of My own people bound in My own house.




Tell my people that great treasure is behind these walls in these forgotten vessels. My people must come forth and touch these ones, for a mighty anointing will be unleashed upon these for future victory in My kingdom. THEY MUST BE RESTORED." I then saw the Lord step up to the prison doors with a key. One key fit every lock and the gates began to open. I then heard and saw great explosions which sounded like dynamite going off behind the walls. It sounded like all-out spiritual warfare. Jesus turned and said, "Tell My people to go in now and pick up the spoil and rescue these." Jesus then began walking in and touching inmates who were thronging Him. Many being touched instantly began to have a golden glow come over them. God spoke to me, "THERE'S THE GOLD!" Others had a silver glow around them. God said, "THERE'S THE SILVER!"




Like slow motion they began to grow into what appeared to be giant knights in armor-like warriors. They had on the entire armor of God and every piece was solid and pure gold! Even golden shields! When I saw the golden shields, I heard God say to these warriors: "Now go and take what Satan has taught you and use it against him. Go and pull down the strongholds coming against MY church." The spiritual giants then started stepping over the prison walls with no one to resist them, and they went immediately to the very front line of the battle with the enemy. I saw them walk right past the church as big-name ministers known for their power with God were surpassed by the giant warriors like David going after Goliath! They crossed the enemy's line and started delivering many of God's people from the clutches of Satan while demons trembled and fled out of sight at their presence.




No one, not even the church, seemed to know who these spiritual giants were or where they came from. All you could see was the armor, the golden armor of God, from head to foot, and the shields of gold were there. The shields were restored to God's House and there was great victory and rejoicing. I also saw silver, precious treasures, and vessels being brought in. Beneath the gold and silver were the people that nobody knew: REJECTS OF SOCIETY, STREET PEOPLE, THE OUTCASTS, THE POOR and the DESPISED. These were the treasures that were missing from His House.

In closing the Lord said, "If my people want to know where they are needed, tell them they are needed in the STREETS, the HOSPITALS, the MISSIONS, and PRISONS. When they come there they will find Me and the next move of my Spirit and they will be judged by My Word in Matthew 25:42. "For I was hungry and you gave me no meat: I was thirsty and you gave me no drink: I was a stranger and you took me not in: naked and you clothes me not: Sick and in prison and you visited me not."

Pierre Aglow Reading List

I have been thinking that we need a 'Prison Ministry Reading List'.  If I'm not the only one, please add your suggestions for a reading list for our Prison Ministry Team.  I own each of the books below (if you want to borrow one), or they are available online or from other sources. I am suggesting the following:

Sunset to Sunset by Thomas Lawrence Riggs (as told to Margaret Kellogg Howard).  I think this is an important book for the spiritual mapping of our area.  It may be available at the Cultural Heritage Center (I'll check on that) - I see it's quite expensive as a used book on Amazon or half.com.

The Captivity Series: The Key To Your Expected End by Katie Souza (also available at amazon and some others). She is a former inmate and drug addict who ministers deliverance.  This is written specifically for inmates, in a Bible study format, and I think it would also be useful for those who minister in prisons.  That said, I haven't read through the entire thing.  I'd love to have it as a Bible study for prison inmates.

Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge - this is a wonderful devotional book, and there's a companion Bible study workbook to go with it.  There's also a DVD series which I have, and which, again, I'd love to have at the prison.  Bob Sorge's website is oasishouse.net, and there is an online discussion forum for the book.  It's also available at amazon.com, etc.

In the name of Jesus, I thank you, prison ministry team and everyone who reaches out to inmates.  Thank you.  You are very much appreciated.
