Georgia Hosts Prayer Movement

news leader.jpgThe OneCry message of the urgent need for spiritual awakening has spread across the state of Georgia, culminating in a statewide prayer gathering on November 20 in Cartersville, GA. The gathering was hosted at the LakePoint Champions Center, where a crowd of 1,800 people prayed for personal revival and national awakening.

The movement began in September 2016 when churches in seven cities in Georgia (Dalton, Cumming, Albany, Americus, Rutledge, Douglas, and Thomasville) hosted four-day events that featured strategic preaching about the urgent need for revival—both personally and nationally. Teams from Life Action Ministries traveled to the cities to lead the meetings.

In Dalton, more than 60 diverse congregations across denominational and ethnic lines gathered in a city convention center when it was determined the host church would be too small. The other six cities also focused on unity among churches.

Because of the growing and unified prayer movement in Bartow County (where Cartersville is located), the OneCry leadership approached 100 pastors and business leaders in Cartersville to inquire about hosting the November 20 statewide event. The leaders unanimously agreed to host the prayer event and raise the money to cover the cost. In addition to the participation of 1,800 people in attendance, the event was simulcast to the other cities and broadcast on American Family Radio.

Organizers of the simulcast expressed desire for two outcomes: 1) that pastors with hearts for prayer would be strengthened, and 2) that local church prayer meetings would either be strengthened or resurrected. Dr. Bob Bakke, member of the OneCry executive team, produced and hosted the simulcast. He also produced the Revive Our Hearts CryOut16! broadcast in September that gathered more than 400,000 women around the world in unified prayer for revival. More of the Georgia story can be read at
