Prayer Walk

Let's go for a walk!

This Thursday, April 16th, we want to encourage you and your family to go for a walk around your neighborhood.  But this isn't just any walk - this is a Prayer Walk!

If you've never done a Prayer Walk before, here are the basics:

  1. A Prayer Walk is a form of intercessory prayer, praying for the needs of others around you, even if you don't know them or their needs.
  2. As you walk, you silently pray for each person or each house or each need that comes to your heart and mind.
  3. You don't need to carry a Bible or make a show of what you're doing.
  4. When you pass by a house, pray that the members of that household may know Christ and trust in Him.
  5. When you see others on your walk, silently pray for them, that God would bless them, provide for them, and protect them.
  6. If you pass by a house where it's obvious children live or pass by a park, pray for the raising of children and grandchildren in the Lord.
  7. If you see a "For Sale" sign in a yard, pray for a smooth transition and move for those leaving and the new neighbors coming.
  8. As you walk in silence, "listen" to what God is putting on your heart and lift those things up to him in prayer.
  9. If you want, you can even call some neighbors and ask them if they have any prayer needs that you can pray about on your walk.
  10. If you can't go for a walk, then go for a drive around your neighborhood or community, and pray in the same ways.
And one more thing: take a picture on your walk and share it with us on social media! Tag your picture with #AlamedaPrayerWalk
