The city is awash in spirituality and religion with temples, prayer rooms, pagodas, shrines, and roadside spiritual sites. Through tradition and rituals, the people are actively seeking for help, pragmatically from wherever they think they might find it.
Pray that Believers will boldly and faithfully communicate the truth of the Gospel and that the people of the city will find that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.
“Then Paul stood in the middle of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that you are extremely religious in every respect. For as I was passing through and observing the objects of your worship, I even found an altar on which was inscribed:
TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.
Therefore, what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it—He is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in shrines made by hands. Neither is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives everyone life and breath and all things.” Acts 17:22-25
