Athens Prayer Opps – October 2022

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.” Isaiah 9:2 (ESV)

In October we will continue on focusing on Isaiah 60:1-2. This month we will specifically be marinating in “for the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.” The context of this passage is a great darkness that covers the earth, a gross darkness over the peoples (Isaiah 60:2). That so describes today, yet the glory of the LORD is rising upon us!!! Please join us in meditating upon glory passages throughout this month. We end the month with our next Night of Glory!

Here are some ways to join us in the corporate setting crying out to God to release His glory among us, and confirm His presence and power in Athens and beyond….
  
UGA/Athens Prayer Walk
First Saturday, October 1 / 10am to noon
Starts at the Arch
 
This is a huge month! If you’re able, please join us as we hit the ground once again crying out for the Holy Spirit to move upon the students, teachers, coaches and administration. We are crying out for His glory to fall and change the spiritual atmosphere over the campus and city. We meet at the Arch and go from there. Children are most welcome!

Contending for Revival for Senior Pastors
Thursday, October 6 & 20 / 10:30 to 11:30am
The Light – 174 Henderson Ext., Athens 30605

We will be ramping it up with focusing our prayer on each other. Revival must start in each of the pastors, as they are gatekeepers for their congregations and the city. Please be praying that God would move powerfully on your pastors, and the other pastors who are come together to contend for revival in each other!

AHOP Interest Gathering
Monday, October 10 / 6 to 8pm
AHOP Center – 660 W Broad St., Athens 30601

Now that AHOP is into a rhythm of weekly gatherings, it will soon be time to begin expanding with more churches, worship leaders and prayer leaders facilitating new slots during the week. This is our third monthly onramp to AHOP. These monthly gatherings are for everyone who wants to be involved as well as those who are already a part of AHOP. We use this opportunity to share the vision, values and model that make up this House of Prayer. If you want to be a part of expanding AHOP, this gathering is for you.

Night of Glory
Sunday, October 30 / 6 to 8pm (with prayer from 5 to 5:45)
The Classic Center (Athena rooms) – 300 N Thomas St., Athens 30601 

This will be the fourth, quarterly Sunday evening worship gathering this year. At least a half dozen churches come together to gaze on the glory of God, to worship intensely and to invite the Holy Spirit to move among us however He wants! Our theme this time is the Spirit of Glory (1 Peter4:14). Other key passages are Habakkuk 2:14 and 2 Corinthians 3:18, Hebrews 1:3. Prayer starts at 5pm sharp, with doors opening at 5:45pm for the 6pm corporate start. Mark your calendar, save the date, and plan to come linger in God’s presence! Everyone is welcome to join us!

ONGOING & INSPIRATIONAL…

Contending for Revival Prayer (OPEN SESSION)

As mentioned above, the first and third Thursday is for Senior Pastors to contend in prayer together for revival in each other. The second, fourth and fifth Thursdays are open for all pastors, key leaders in churches and intercessors to join us as well. These are really getting hot, with every week different, filled with intensity and a strong sense of God’s presence and leading. Join us if you’re able.
