Pippa's Prayer Walks

So, a prayer walk, 'what on earth is that?!'  I hear you ask, and I'm glad you did!  

Prayerwalking involves taking our prayers to the very places where we desire to see God’s presence manifested and our prayers answered. Prayerwalking is the powerful dynamic of praying on-site with God’s sight.

In Nehemiah we see a person with a God-given burden and a sensitive heart. Before Nehemiah ever set foot in Jerusalem, the Scripture tells us he wept, mourned, fasted and prayed for the city (Nehemiah 1:4). When he finally arrived, his eyes saw the rubble, the burned city gates, as had others before him. However, when a person with a God-given burden and a God-sensitive heart saw them, things changed!
 
To focus on Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is most strategic to lift up Jesus for He said, “As I am lifted up I will draw all … to me.” (John 12:32)
 
Prayer is “front-line” warfare. It is the ultimate weapon in our “struggle … against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in high places.” (Ephesians 6:10). 
 
I particularly felt God place on my heart that we need to seek Him to hear His heart for our community and to proclaim His truth, this could be where we know people live, for business', young and the elderly etc!  Every walk is different and it's exciting to see how God guides us, where we walk, in our thinking and prayers.
 
Each walk starts at 11am from the information car park in Bovey Tracey.  We then go out in pairs and then meet back at the car park for 12:15pm where we feed back, it is always encouraging to hear how God speaks to people.
 
All are welcome, we often have lunch together at the Dolphin Hotel  after the walk.

I will be there each time whatever the weather!

Let's pray that God will be at work in every street in Bovey Tracey!
 

I hope to see you there!  

Pippa
