Chuck Pierce; December 2011 & January 2012
At the HAPN/USRPN National Conference in December 2011, and the GOZ Crossing Over conference in January 2012, Chuck Pierce spoke the same word for Iowa three different times at these two meetings. Chuck prophesied:
1.“The eye of the Lord is on Iowa” and “His glory is coming to Iowa”
2.“The eye of the Lord is on Iowa” and “Iowa you will see His glory.”
3.“The eye of the Lord is on Iowa” and “Iowa will be visited by His glory.”
This picture of “God’s Eye in the clouds over Iowa” was taken by Julie Preussner on Memorial Day 2007 near Manchester, Iowa in Delaware County.
Cindy Jacobs; December 2007
“Iowa is an acronym for Intercessors on World Affairs. Iowa Intercessors are called to change world affairs. Iowa is a tipping point state. This is a tipping point time where God wants to throw this state into a massive move of God. You’re on the verge of the birth pangs of revival. This state is about to deliver. God wants to light a fire of reformation. Iowa is an Issachar State. A Large number of people will move into Iowa.
“There are new companies coming in, new cities being built, it will not hurt the farming. In the next few years the population will double. The flight in Iowa will be reversed. Iowa will be a state of visitation. You have been visited by politicians, the Lord says you are going to be visited by Me, and you’re going to be visited by My power. Iowa will be a state of miracles. Iowans will understand land issues…know how to sanctify the land.
You’re going to see award winning giant vegetables. The curse has been broken off the land in Iowa. I’m going to release my glory says God. Iowa is an altar to me says the Lord and I’m going to cause 24/7 prayer houses to spring up. Iowa is a prophetic discerning state. You’ll be seers. Iowa is a Daniel and Joseph state…governmental, but also a Joseph anointing. There will be a national poll taken and the number of entrepreneurs and new business start-ups coming from Iowa will exceed all of other states.
Is there faith in the house? Satan will try to build strongholds to try and undermine your destiny. Issachar Strong donkey (strong fire), but his love of comfort could also cause him to settle down for the easy way out. Jacob said, Issachar, strong fighter, but love of comfort could settle for the easy way out. It is time for Iowa to wake up!”

3. Abortion Laws
The Iowa House has approved a measure calling for new restrictions on the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions. The measure passed by a vote of 57-to-37. It would ban public funding of abortions except in cases where the procedure is needed to save the life of the mother. Current law allows taxpayer-funded abortions in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. Critics say the measure is unfair to low-income women but supporters say public money shouldn’t pay for a procedure that many people oppose. (1)
