Seven Churches. Seven Cities. One Cry.
When a church unites to seek God’s presence in humility, repentance, worship, and obedience, amazing things can happen. Now, imagine what God would do if an entire state cried out to Him!
OneCry Georgia is an ambitious and desperate plan to seek the reviving work of God on a large scale. Starting this September, seven churches in seven cities will be meeting individually to cry out to God for personal and corporate revival. Led by the OneCry Conference Team, these seven churches will walk the hard line of scriptural self-examination and submission to the will of God.
Then, on November 20th in Cartersville, the entire state is encouraged to gather for a corporate time of seeking the Lord at the OneCry Georgia Prayer Summit.

In 1822, Sarah Hale was only two weeks away from giving birth to her fifth child when her beloved husband died suddenly of a stroke. She was so devastated that she wore only black the rest of her life. She was left almost penniless, a single mom with no clear path forward. But as a follower of Jesus, she was not without hope.
There are times in these days when I feel kinship with a sad singer sitting on the banks of a Babylonian river asking, “How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land?” (Psalm 137:4 ESV). These are uncertain, evil, and anxious times. But today God is sovereign, good, and fearless. And all that He is—is alive in us:
Did you wake up this morning anxious to see who is going to run our nation for the next four years? Only to find yourself disappointed that no one knows for sure? Nothing wrong with that. But consider these two things:

As believers, our lives should be marked by integrity. This is true whether we’re interacting with brothers and sisters in Christ or with those who are rejecting Him. It is also true when no one but God Himself is watching.
To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some. I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it (1 Corinthians 9:22-23 NASB).
All of us are dramatically shaped by how we view ourselves. Some have too low a perspective, some too high. To be imbalanced here is harmful in either direction. The apostle Paul summed up his self-awareness in one important sentence as he wrote to the Corinthians: “By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me” (1 Corinthians 15:10 NASB).
In the profound letter Paul wrote to the Galatian believers, he reminded them that they had been set free by the grace of God. There was no need to return to the bondage of trying to live on their own, vainly seeking to make themselves right with God by their own efforts.
It’s been a problem since the beginning of time. The rise of Internet availability has made it incredibly more accessible, but lust has always been one of Satan’s most powerful tools to mar the image of God in us. Paul was intense about this because he understood the nature of the human mind and the deadliness of this particular sin. He always tells us to abstain, flee, run, get away by any and every means. Why?
