Prayer Opportunities in Spring 2020.

Executive Pastors Prayer
Thursday, February 20 / 9 to 10am
Grace Fellowship – 1120 Malcom Bridge Rd, Bogart, GA 30622

The leaders who “run” churches are usually hidden doing their thing behind the scenes. Every month on the third Thursday we come together from across Athens to share and pray for and with each other. Please pray for the executive / administrative pastor (or those who do that role) in your church and the others who carry this load in the churches across our city. This is such a vital ministry! Ask for an open heaven over their lives! Pray that God would give them wisdom from above and supernatural joy as they keep the systems operating smoothly and effectively (or set up new ones) for Kingdom growth in Athens. Pray that God would increase His presence and favor in their lives and homes. Pray that God would give them what they need to be prepared for what’s coming.

Prayer for the Middle East & Israel
Friday, February 21 / noon to 1pm
Living Hope (House of Prayer)  2150 Lexington Rd., Athens 30605

This is a monthly opportunity to join in with others, praying together for important issues in the Middle East. There are usually reports from missionaries who are on the ground in the Middle East that helps direct laser focused agreeing prayer. Please join us as we press into God on behalf of this precious region of the world. If you cannot physically be at this gathering, please take time during this day to pray for the Middle East.

The Pre-Mix Prayer Gathering for Volunteers
Sunday, February 23 / 1:45 to 2:15pm
Athens Church (High School area) – 10 Huntington Road, Athens 30605

A big part of the success of The Mix are the volunteer leaders who come from each church. These folks are the front line, who will be spending the weekend with students. They will have one on one and group time with their students throughout the weekend. They will have deep conversations, some in the middle of the night! The Pre-Mix Prayer Gathering is specifically our opportunity to pray with and pray for these volunteers (including host homes, drivers and group leaders). Praying people, parents and pastors, please join us for this brief, yet intense and fast-moving prayer time with this army of leaders who are coming to The Mix.

The Mix Student Pastors Prayer and Final Briefing

WFBC – 1610 Simonton Bridge Rd, Watkinsville 30677

On the Eve of The Mix every student pastor comes to get their final briefing, the t-shirts for their group and to pray one last time together before The Mix commences the next day. Please be praying for the student pastors you know, starting with the one’s from your church.

The Mix Prayer Watch
Friday, February 28 – Saturday, February 29 / 11am to 11pm
The Classic Center – 300 N Thomas St, Athens 30601

Throughout the duration of The Mix we have a prayer room open onsite at The Classic Center to pray for the students and leaders who are at The Mix. Teams from each church who have students at The Mix (as well as some others groups) will be facilitating ONE HOUR slots starting at 11am Friday and wrapping at 11pm Saturday. This 36 hours of power packed prayers of agreement definitely sets the tone for The Mix. If your church is bringing a team for a specific ONE HOUR slot you come as part of it, or you come at any time during the hours its operating… BUT PLEASE COME & PRAY!!! Your prayers do and will have a tremendous impact.

Join us in praying for every student (literally several times) to be revived, awakened & transformed, for hundreds of students to meet Jesus for the very first time, for student ministries across Athens to be injected with new life and that every campus in our city would experience a spiritual seismic shift because of The Mix!

I’ll post the exact room and directions, once they are nailed down!
