The greatest moments in life are the miraculous moments when human impotence and divine omnipotence intersect- and they intersect when we draw a circle around the impossible situations in our lives and invite God to intervene.

Atlanta Dream Center
Mel Meyer is the Director of Residential Services for the Atlanta Dream Center, which includes their trafficking ministry, Out of Darkness. She indicated they rescued 114 women (18+) from sexual exploitation in Georgia in 2018 so far. So far this year they have had 3,933 outreach encounters, 1,015 jail visits, and 2,457 hotline calls.
This problem will not go away on its own. It will take an army of people joining together in this fight to make a difference.
We’re inviting you to join this army.
Any time there is a large event in a city, such as a convention, sporting event or concert, sex trafficking increases. It’s as simple as supply and demand. Super Bowl 2019 is in Atlanta and an increase in trafficking will come with it. We need to fight back through prayer.
Circle Atlanta for Hope is a 24 hour event in which prayer warriors will utilize I-285 as a tool to circle the entire city. This prayer initiative will include teams of cars choosing an hour and thirty minute time-slot on February 2nd, 2019 to approach God with specific points over the city of Atlanta and the sex trade within. Although we are spending a full day in prayer, we expect God to move continuously.
