Prayer walking is as simple as it sounds – praying as you walk. When we prayer walk we are stepping into our authority as God’s children to bless people and places in Jesus’ name. This simple task is a great way to bring transformation to your local community by asking God to break in.
The core of prayer walking is talking with God; ask Him to show you what He sees; to know His heart for your community.
As you prayer walk, be aware of your surroundings: what you see, smell, hear and touch. But also be aware of what God is saying to you as you move around your community; if any Bible verses pop into your head or if you have any pictures, visions or words of knowledge. Turn these natural and supernatural senses into prayer.
The point of prayer walking isn’t about being seen praying; it’s about seeing and praying. You can pray quietly or in silence if it makes you feel more comfortable. However, don’t be afraid to speak out prayers if you feel compelled to.
As you prayer walk, the focus is on those who are living in your community so be intentional about praying for God’s blessings on what you see and feel. Focus on God’s plans and purposes for the place and people that live there. “Your Kingdom come, your will be done…” is an excellent start.
There is still an opportunity to pray with others at St Paul’s. Today we’ve got a Prayer Breakfast at 9am.
