A prayer walk is an activity that consists in walking and praying at the same time. It’s done not for the physical benefit but for spiritual exercise. Although both benefits are available. Prayer walking is praying for your city as you, praying for neighbors and businesses along the way, it may be praying through a prayer list or listening to the Holy Spirit and praying as He guides you along the way. A prayer walk may include a time to just listen. Our Heavenly Father has a still small voice and we live in chaos and the noise level is overwhelming. We need to pull away from this world and quiet ourselves to hear His wisdom and insight.
Our pastor at our Foursquare church challenged us in the message Sunday to take prayer walks and to pray and intercede for our nation, churches, families and the world around us. As he continues to show us in Acts 2:42 the first believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Prayer walking is the powerful dynamic of praying on-site with God’s insight.
Prayer is front line warfare. It is the ultimate weapon in our ‘struggle against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in high places.” Eph. 6:10
Here are some of the sights I see as I prayer walk at this beautiful camp in Texas. It is sucha joy to walk and pray for the SOWER team, the staff, for the kids here this week, for those at home and for our prayer concerns from home.
