What is Prayer Walking?
A very simple definition is to walk and pray in the places that you desire to see God’s power displayed.
This can be to bring transformation, to breakdown strongholds of the enemy, or to gain God’s perspective or insight…simply anywhere you want to see God’s mighty work done. Prayer walking can be done anywhere you can walk and pray ….in or around homes, schools, churches, courtrooms, theaters, civic centers, etc.; neighborhoods, business districts, streets/roads, communities/towns,parks, playgrounds and even seats of government like city halls and courthouses.
How do you Prayer Walk?
On a path: To prayer walk you decide on a path. It may be in or around the outside of a building, up and down streets in neighborhoods or business districts, possibly some place up high enough that you can look over an entire community or a place where people gather. Prayer walking can be done in a home or building by walking room to room, floor to floor.
With a purpose: To prayer walk you must know your purpose. Is your goal to have insight into the needs of people, to see transformation come to those who live, work, play or worship in a specific place? Perhaps you want to breakdown strongholds of sin in a community or establish an atmosphere that is receptive to the working of the Holy Spirit. Once defined you are ready to go.
