Many people walk for pleasure, exercise or with their children or pets. It’s easy to turn our normal routine into a prayer walk. Or you may want to add a prayer walk to your normal routine. God can bless many people through you as you prayer walk.
You may want to consider mapping your walk using one of these downloadable maps for Maple Ridge and/or Pitt Meadows (option 1 or option 2). Please choose a route which ideally you can prayer-walk weekly or more. As you walk and pray, please give special attention to places people gather, schools, hospitals, city hall, influential businesses, areas of poverty and high-needs areas.
Our goal is to pray for every home in Ridge Meadows – as well as every school, business, government office etc. – at least monthly. Together we can!
As you walk pray for every home, school and business you pass. Ask God – for each household – a revelation of Jesus Christ, the fullness of his Holy Spirit, Godly marriages and families, vibrant health, for God’s Kingdom to come.
If you are getting to know your neighbours, greet those you meet on the street with a smile or word. Fruitful conversations may emerge.
You could also consider forming a lighthouse on your block; a place where Christians you’ve met on your prayer walk can come to pray for the neighborhood and to whom your neighbors can ask for prayer. More in James Montgomery’s I’m Gonna Let it Shine…
