Prayer Walking is a way of blessing the people and places where we live, work and worship. We encourage you to take time each week to walk down your street or through your neighborhood with a partner. As you go, ask God to help you see your community and the people in it through God’s eyes. Pray quietly together for the people you see and the homes and businesses you pass by. You may stop from time to time to focus your prayer on a particular place or situation.

Fulfilling Our "Seek and Save" Mission
Prayerwalking certainly isn't the only way God is calling us to pray, but it may be the best way to be sure we have prayed for every person of our land. No list includes all of the homeless, or every child, or the transient, or fresh immigrants, or many others. If we are serious about praying for every person, it will require systematic, sustained prayerwalking as an important part of our praying.
I'm convinced that Christ is fulfilling His "seek and save" mission (Luke 19:10). Our part of that mission involves seeking people. He will do the saving. Prayerwalking may be the simplest way for us to seek people. Our prayers are without question God's preferred way to save people, because He is honored and thanked with every answer to prayer.
How to Prayerwalk
Pray with a Partner.
You can prayerwalk alone, but many find that their prayers are more focused when expressed with a friend. Pray audibly for clarity and better agreement. As you finish, discuss -
Pray with God's Spirit.
Invite the Spirit of God to accompany you, guiding your steps and your words. Be attentive during moments of silence, allowing the Holy Spirit to help you see with His eyes and pray in accordance with His heart. Address God directly when contending with evil or its aftermath. Ask God to redeem people as he restrains the enemy.
Pray with God's Word.
Read Scripture aloud. God breathed it and loves to bless it. Express God's thoughts in your own words. Carry Scripture with you. Use a small Bible, or note cards. Choose a particular verse or theme as a base for your prayers throughout one day's prayerwalk. Use another to launch your prayers the next day, and so on.
Pray with Purpose.
