Why Prayer Walk our Communities?
Prayer walking is just that: walking and praying. When we are aware of the sights and sounds in an area, we can better understand how to pray for that area. When we walk a neighborhood, we are able to pray onsite with insight! Remember, prayer has no boundaries. God will give us insight on what to bind and loose, what strongholds are in that area, specific things He wants to see changed and most of all praying for an outpouring of His Presence. God told Joshua as he prepared to lead the Israelites into the promised land, “Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses” (Joshua 1:2-3 NIV). God’s Presence went with them in the Ark of the Covenant wherever they walked. It is the same with us, only WE are the ark! God’s Presence goes with us, inside us, wherever we walk. The Apostle Paul reminds us, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?” (1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV). Let’s walk our communities with the Presence of God and pray!
What to Do on a Prayer Walk?
- Be alert. If you are praying with someone, don’t get distracted by conversations with each other. Agree ahead of time that your purpose is to pray.
- Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Keep your heart open to what the Holy Spirit is telling you. He may be prompting you to do something different than your usual routine.
- Be Ready. You may encounter someone who needs prayer or is open to a spiritual conversation. Be ready to interact.
- Be a Doer. Unless you get out and do it, you will never experience how God can use you in this area.
- Be on the lookout for God at work. Remember, God has already been in that neighborhood. He is very aware of situations and is looking for a laborer willing to pray for change.

Tracking Prayer Miles
As a church, we are setting a goal to prayer walk 500 miles from March 1-27. We need everyone’s participation.
