This is the monthly gathering of focused prayer for the Middle East and Israel. There are usually some very specific prayer requests that lead to very focused prayer into a battle torn land! Everyone is welcome to join in as we pray for Israel and the nations / peoples of the Middle East. Please pray for the Kingdom of God to advance in Israel and across the Middle East!

Pastors Racial Reconciliation Gathering
Thursday, September 27 / 10am to noon
Athens Church – 10 Huntington Road, Athens 30606

Black and white senior pastors have been meeting up for over two years now, with the focused purpose to discuss and pray through the various racial issues we live in. This gathering has become safe to tear down walls and build authentic relationships across previous barriers. Please pray for God’s momentum to continue into this next gathering. Pray that the ground that has been taken would be maintained and occupied. Pray that each pastor would be prepared for this gathering, especially as we talk about practical ways to walk it out in our community. Pray that God would give us His strategies to lead us into a reconciled and transformed Athens!
