“A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way for the Lord; make His paths straight!” Mark 1:3 (HCSB)
Forerunners are called to prepare the way for the Lord, as well as building up the road for people to come to Him! The season is in full on transition. With college students returning to Athens now, and classes starting on August 17, there is a lot of work still to do in preparing the way! This past Saturday, our prayer walk was so very timely. In the natural, the UGA campus was pretty empty except some construction workers and a few pedestrians. I don’t think I’ve ever seen UGA in such a state of disarray. There was trash all over the place, construction going on in multiple sites, and lots of weeds with even some of the lawns quite thin. There was many renovations and landscaping projects going on.
It is hard to imagine the work that’s going to happen in the next 10 days, to prepare the way for the tens of thousands of students to head back to class. Nevertheless, it will be ready (well at least mostly, hopefully)!
As we prayed, we cried out for God to go before the students and to prepare the way for revival across the campus, from dorms, to fields, to plazas, to walkways, etc… We prayed that the way would be prepared for the Lord to come and move powerfully this Fall!
Even downtown was busy with construction. The sign outside Toppers indicated the sidewalk may be closed but they are not! We prayed to Holy Spirit invasion. That they would go from perversion to conversion. That the fear of God to fall on that place and throughout downtown!
Join us in praying that God would give each of us clarity on the part we’re all to play in preparing the way for a move of God in our city, in every fiber in it, and beyond!
