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, 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. If we go out with our ‘spiritual antenna up’, The Lord will tell us how to pray and what to do.

Prayer Walking activity is also very much part of ‘releasing a sound’ over the nation. (Click here ).
Jean Darnell’s Vision and prayer walking
Could the physical movement of God’s people Prayer Walking be part of Jean Darnell’s 1967 vision, where she speaks of an increase of prayer in the nation – (which we already see) – small ‘fires that were burning‘ – those praying for a move of God?
Jean saw ‘fires’ multiplying, then ‘lightning’ striking the ‘fires’, (a move of the Holy Spirit), leading to ‘rivers of fire’ flowing down the nation. (God’s people carrying and distributing a national Christian revival?).
‘…And what I saw was the British Isles, as in a bird’s-eye view. A kind of haze was over the whole, like a green fog. And then little pinpricks of light began to appear from the top of Scotland to Land’s End. Then the Lord seemed to draw me closer to these lights, and I saw that they were fires that were burning. They were multiplying from the top of Scotland to Land’s End.
Then I saw lightning come and strike those fires, the brightest spots particularly, and there was a kind of explosion, and rivers of fire flowed down. Again, the sense of direction was from the top of Scotland to Land’s End. But some of those rivers of fire didn’t stop there. They went right across the Channel and didn’t stop there. They went right across the Channel and spread out into the Continent…’
