For Three Decades, Cindy Jacobs Has Been Raising a Prophetic Army Through Generals International

by | Nov 6, 2015 | Blogs, The Strang Report

If you’ve seen the November issue of Charisma, you know it features Cindy Jacobs on the cover. It’s an article about the prophetic, not so much a personality profile about Cindy.

We chose her to represent a bigger movement. That’s because over the last 30 years, Cindy has come to exemplify the prophetic movement as it has grown in acceptance. We believe so much in Cindy’s ministry that we included her as one of the 40 people who radically changed the world for our 40th anniversary issue of Charisma in August.

Now Cindy is celebrating her own anniversary—30 years—at a big banquet in Dallas tonight.

Cindy-JacobsMy wife, Joy, and I have known Cindy and her husband, Mike, for a long time. We’ve enjoyed many shared experiences, and we have become friends. We were invited to the banquet but were unable to attend, so this is my way to publicly say how much we love and appreciate Cindy and admire what God has done in her life.

I have also featured a telephone interview with her on my podcast today. In it Cindy talks about her recent trip to China and what she taught the house church leaders about the prophetic. She is also starting an initiative for a prayer walk across the United States in preparation for the elections in 2016.

In case you missed the short article on Cindy, I am reprinting it below because Diana Scimone, the author, captured only in a few words the essence of this godly woman’s life and ministry.  

Cindy Jacobs: Prophetic Intercessor

By Diana Scimone

Generals of earthly armies rarely think about raising up other generals. For Cindy Jacobs, however, the call is clear: Mobilize a supernatural army and raise up and train generals to lead it.

In 1985, she and her husband, Mike, founded an organization now known as Generals International, which works to transform nations through intercessory prayer and the prophetic. That means if it’s in the news, Cindy Jacobs usually has something to say about it—not an opinion or commentary, but a prophetic word or a call to militant prayer. Thousands of believers all over the world see her “Shields up!” emails in their inbox and hit their knees in intercession.

“[Generals International] is one of the key ministries in these times, helping to set the stage and get people in their place prepared for the times,” says Rick Joyner, executive director of MorningStar Ministries.

This unique call on Jacobs’ life dates back to a Bible camp when she was nine years old. God told her He had something special He wanted her to do for Him—which she assumed would be a missionary or pastor’s wife. Years later, when she realized He was calling her to be a prophetic intercessor and voice to the nation mobilizing a global army of prayer warriors, her response was clear. “I asked God to use my husband instead of me!” she says. “You know the prayer: ‘Here I am, Lord. Send someone else.'” Not surprisingly, the one who relented was not God but Jacobs. No one will ever know how many national disasters have been averted because Jacobs said “yes” to God then and continues raising up generals and calling them to militant intercession well into the 21st century.


If you are interested in more about Cindy, here is a link to a long article about her ministry on her website.

If Cindy has blessed your life or you know of others who are interested in the prophetic, forward this and add your comments. And, join me in congratulating her and Mike on their 30th anniversary of ministry.
