What is prayerwalking?
The following description of prayerwalking is from Waymakers.org
God is stirring us to take our prayers beyond the walls of our church buildings. As we put feet to our prayers, we’re beginning to pray with huge kingdom-sized hope for entire cities.
Prayerwalking: Praying On-Site With Insight
We’ve come to call this sort of on-site intercession “prayerwalking.” It’s simply praying in the very places that we expect God to bring forth His answers.
The prayers are intercessory rather than devotional. Prayerwalkers learn to pray beyond their own concerns, focusing prayer on behalf of their neighbors.
Prayerwalking is usually a low-profile affair: Friends or family stroll two-by-two through their own neighborhoods, schools and work places, praying as they go. There are some occasions when the prayer should be demonstrative, but usually it’s being on the scene without making one. Though they usually walk unnoticed, prayerwalkers quickly become aware of the realities and needs of their neighbors.
Would you like to sign up to prayerwalk as a part of The Journey's church prayer activity for Lent, the 40-day time before Easter? We begin March 1. Below you can choose a site and group of people to pray for on a certain day. Be sure to put that day and group on your calendar. You will receive more instruction when you submit the form, and there is a link to read more at Waymakers.org.
