I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for A Night for Life. We ask that You would bless this event and all in attendance, God, both physically and virtually.

During the night of July 22 – 23, from 7:00 p.m. till 7:00 a.m. a significant event is scheduled to take place in Athens, TX, a small town approximately 80 miles southeast of Dallas. It is called A Night For Life, an all-night worship and prayer “burn” featuring nationally known worship leader Sean Feucht and a bevy of local leaders. Intercessors For America is live-streaming the event, and more than 20 organizations have partnered with local leaders to make it happen.

Get involved in State Level Prayer with IFA.


A Night For Life is the brainchild of Cynthia Dunbar, Board member of IFA and Executive Director of Awakening Arise, a movement called into being to proclaim and promote life from the womb to the tomb. Says Dunbar:

“The Lord dropped into my spirit to do A NIGHT FOR LIFE. This was completely divine; there was no natural inspiration. The exact order was, “I want you to do A NIGHT FOR LIFE on July 22nd – 23rd from dusk to dawn. I want the children of light to diffuse the darkness and I want the dominion of death to bow the knee to the PERSON OF LIFE!”

This 12-hour worship celebration of The Person of Life is much more than a stand-alone event. Prophetic messages as far back as 2018 have indicated that a spiritual awakening will proceed from Athens and move through the surrounding counties into East Texas.

If that sounds somewhat familiar, it is more or less exactly what happened in the St. Croix Valley area of Eastern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin in April of this year, when a 12-hour prayer conference was held to launch a  sustained prayer initiative to overcome the darkness and welcome a spiritual awakening in the area. That event, too, had been prophesied, as long ago as 1948, to touch off a regional revival. The two-county area of Pine and Burnett had come under heavy oppression by forces of evil following initial periods of revival that eventually faded and gave way to strongholds of evil spread by territorial spirits that moved into the area. The time had come to reverse that.

Athens and its surrounding area, Henderson County, have a spiritual history that bears resemblance to that of the St. Croix Valley. According to research compiled by Tarah Day, prayer coordinator and prophetic intercessor, Athens is the hometown of Dr. Curtis Boyd, called “The Grandfather of Abortion”. He is said to have facilitated 10,000 + abortions in the city before moving to Dallas and starting the first “legal” abortion clinic in Texas after Roe was passed on Jan. 22, 1973. Many of the abortions held in the city were on women that came from across the nation, referred by their pastors.

Several centuries before that, East Texas and Henderson County were the home of the Caddo Nation until disease and settlers pushed them toward Oklahoma. They were succeeded by clans of the Cherokee and Kickapoo nations who were allowed to farm the land before they, too, were forced out of the area. Similar to what happened to the Ojibwe nations of Eastern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, atrocities were committed that caused deep wounds against the white man and his religion. Those run deep to this day.

In the late 1800s revivals began to break out in the area, but after they waned, darkness moved in, which is precisely what happened in the St. Croix Valley area, almost simultaneously. Witchcraft, Satanism, Free Masonry, and humanism moved in followed eventually by abortion with the aforementioned Dr. Boyd, along with an office of Planned Parenthood he established in the courthouse in the 1960s in his capacity of County Health Officer. Local prayer leaders have characterized the spirit that hangs over the area as a spirit of death rooted in the massacres of Native American nations and, in more recent times, the abortion of thousands of unborn children.

That is why A Night For Life is so significant. It is not a political rally or an ideological celebration. It is pure worship and prayer. Its purpose is to exalt the God of Life and proclaim Him as the rightful King and Ruler of the area, serving notice to the forces of darkness that the authority they have usurped is not theirs.  Cynthia and Tarah and their fellow leaders are speaking of a “new day” over the city of Athens and even believe it will be given a new name in accordance with Isaiah 62:4. since Athens received its first name to celebrate Greek (and ungodly) wisdom and enlightenment.

For that reason, we are calling upon IFA’s community of intercessors around the nation to form a 12-hour Canopy of Prayer over this event, like there was at the St. Croix Valley event, while many other worshippers and prayer warriors join together on-site to confront the forces of darkness head-on and restore the supremacy of Christ to its rightful place.

After finishing where I left off in Western Wisconsin and having been called in as an advisor to the prayer leadership of A Night For Life, I am convinced that God is in the process of preparing ignition points for spiritual awakening in rural areas and small towns around the USA where revivals once took place and died down, and the wells of those revivals are ready to be re-dug. And I believe that those revivals we so desperately need in our day will be touched off and sustained not only by desperate heartfelt desire but also by strategic prayer and spiritual warfare because they involve areas where Satan has moved in with territorial spirits, usurped power, and brought oppression and death.

Will you join us in forming a Canopy of Prayer over A Night for Life in Athens TX from 7:00 p.m. till 7:00 a.m. the night of July 22-23?

Here is how:

  1. Click on the Prayer Registration Page, scroll down to register that you will be praying and select whether or not you will attend in person or virtually.
  2. You will then receive a Prayer Guide from [email protected]
  3. If you plan to attend in person you will receive an additional link to select a specific hour to join other intercessors at the on-sight prayer tent
  4. Those attending virtually, just use the Prayer Guide you’ll receive to pray over the event whenever you can. There are no designated hourly slots to sign up. We do encourage some to burn the midnight oil and cover the overnight hours in prayer!

As you read this, please be in prayer as well throughout the week for the event preparation, its leaders, and participants as the time draws near. God has already moved with unprecedented unity among area churches and organizations coming together. Satan is also already stirring with spiritual attacks on the organizers and will no doubt do his best to derail the event. Join me in upholding A Night For Life, Cynthia, Tarah, Sean Feucht, and local pastors and leaders in prayer:

Father, we join our hearts across the nation to cover A Night for Life in prayer. We pray for your protection and anointing on Cynthia, Tarah, Sean, and local organizers as they finalize logistics. We ask that you command the hosts of heaven to come and do battle in Athens and Henderson County as your children gather together to worship, pray, and proclaim Christ as King. We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit into every part of the worship event and ask that it will touch off the revival that has been prophesied. And we pray that you prepare more places around our nations for the wells of revivals past to be re-dug and ignite new revivals like never before. Awaken our nation to life. All life – your design for life on earth and life eternal. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

I pray that the bride of Christ would awaken and that she would be unified, efficient, productive, winsome, and deeply grounded in love and devotion to her Savior. That the beauty of her love, passion, service, righteous acts, and winsomeness would ignite the fires of revival throughout our nation. Amen.

My hope is, that this event will bring wide-spread revival in our nation. Anytime that we uphold and honor life, you can bet that God will move! Lord, send a mighty revival to our land. Let this life-honoring event reach reach the Throne Room. As our prayers go up on Friday, let Your blessings come down! Thank you Jesus!

Lord Jesus, I pray You would raise up Intercessors from across America to participate either in person or online, and that this event would spark many others to occur across the country. May it also spark a revival, Lord, to take back our nation for You just as it was originally founded! Holy Spirit, may You move in power and might at this event, changing lives and bringing more people to Christ. We look forward to what You’ll be doing in and through this night. And as always, Lord, may it all be for Your glory! In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen! 🙏🙏

praises Lord praises You do the fighting for us, may all learn how and why essential to intercede. I just read Grubbs biography of Rees Howell, to see how compared to my journey,. So parallel and encouragement, but too can point to the slack im not unique.

SE Queensland where I live has become overwhelmingly dark. In a Retirement / Age Care so many nurses are evil. I pray constantly so those who are snarl at me.

Had to go to local hospital, so oppressive I could not sleep. The medicine they offer is horrible. It makes people have dyrea and bitterness in mouth. I asked the doctor and he affirmed yes. I was worse than the symptoms suppose to suppress. So many reactions too.

Every time there is an upgrade my provider stops recognizing my pin,

    Ted, I returned to your comment this morning and want to share with you what the Lord says in Jeremiah 17. I pray you are this tree. I pray your trust and confidence in the Lord will keep you fearless despite…I pray you will continue to bear good fruit for His Glory and your good. I pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen

    Jeremiah 17
    5This is what the LORD says:
    “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind,
    who makes the flesh his strengtha
    and turns his heart from the LORD.
    6He will be like a shrub in the desert;
    he will not see when prosperity comes.
    He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
    in a salt land where no one lives.
    7But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
    whose confidence is in Him.
    8He is like a tree planted by the waters
    that sends out its roots toward the stream.
    It does not fear when the heat comes,
    and its leaves are always green.
    It does not worry in a year of drought,
    nor does it cease to produce fruit.

“Father, we pray for A Night for Life. We ask that You would bless this event.”

I PRAYED and add….

There is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Only in Him and through faith in Him are we able to enter God’s presence with boldness and confidence. Let us then with confidence, draw near to the Throne of Grace in this time of need. Jesus is able to save completely those who draw near to God through Him. Jesus Christ lives to make intercession for us. I love You Father. I love You Jesus. I love You Holy Spirit. Amen

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Our God reigns! Lord pour out your Spirit on all flesh and be glorified.
It is written satan, “Our God shall cause your head to be crushed under our feet.” You are powerless and defeated in Jesus’ name. We cancel your assignment and we declare every plot and plan of the enemy comes to nothing now in Jesus’ name.
We declare Jer. 29:11 over this worship/prayer event called “A Night for Life” and over the organizers, intercessors and babies: “For I know the plans I have for you”, says the Lord. “They are for good and not for evil to give you a future and a hope”. We agree with God’s word and will continue to proclaim and promote life from the womb to the tomb. We bind the spirit of death and loose the Spirit of Life over America and every baby in the womb. And we declare America and the babies shall be saved. They shall live and not die to declare the works of the Lord and will come into their destiny in Christ in Jesus’ name. Now Lord, protect all laborers, intercessors and their family members with the blood of Jesus as you use them to awaken life and revival in our nation once again. Release angels on assignment, Lord. We apply the finished work of the cross to them and this event. No weapon formed against them shall prosper and no plague nor pestilence shall come nigh their dwelling in the Matchless Name of Jesus. Thank you Lord for the gift of life. Amen.

Texas is in the Central time zone. Intercessors may want to factor that in such that the entire event will be supported as it is happening in Athens.
