We believe that increasingly, God has been telling His Church to leave their buildings to be a ‘light’ to their communities.
Prayer is vital, not only in asking God to bless those where we live, or declaring scriptural truths over our towns and cities, but to listen to His voice for what He is already doing and how we might join Him in His mission.
Prayer Walking our neighbourhoods, streets, highways and by-ways of the UK is an amazing way of engaging with God’s heart. A we go out with our ‘spiritual antennas up’, The Lord will tell us how to pray and what to do.
Here are a couple of organisations that have some great ideas on getting started.
Neighbourhood Prayer Network
The updated and redesigned the ‘A Mile with Jesus’ Prayerwalking guide, will really help you understand your local community and how to pray for everything within it. It gives so many hints and tips for Prayer Walking.
The vision of A Mile with Jesus was originally given to Rachael Fola, the Neighbourhood Prayer Network, A Mile with Jesus Coordinator who has faithfully been encouraging thousands of their members to go and Prayer Walk their local community with some spiritual intelligence.
