Walking Prayer

"for we walk by faith, not by sight"

2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV)

With Covid recommendations and regulations, we can feel trapped at home, so there is no better time to get out and go for a prayer walk. Especially now that people have put up Christmas lights and there are neat displays to view along the way. Going for a prayer walk is a wonderful experience, it allows the opportunity to calm our minds and ask the Lord for what he would have us pray. We do not know what every household is facing in our neighbourhood, but the Lord does. As we walk, we walk by faith, praying for the Lords leading and the things he brings to mind, trusting that he is in control and the Holy Spirit is able to enter into every home.

Some things to pray as you walk:

  • Health and safety for your neighbourhood
  • Courage to reach out and meet people/ways to safely develop community and relationships
  • For seniors, families, marriages, singles, pets...
  • For financial security and home maintenance, that your neighbours would not be burdened
  • For God's love, peace, patience, comfort, joy, to be seen and experienced.

Currently, as a Christmas ministry, the church is handing out a 5-point origami star craft with a devotional "Jesus is the light and hope of Christmas", feel free to stop by the church and pick some up to deliver to your neighbours while you are out on a walk praying for them. Download the craft and devotional below if you would like to print it at home. Origami Squares can be made with Christmas wrapping paper.

Thank you for praying,

for turning your eyes and heart to the Father who is able to do more than we could hope or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). May you come to know Jesus more, be blessed, and be a blessing as you pray.

Have you been on a prayer walk?

Would you say you know the majority of your neighbours?
