SUNDAY BREEZE|| 4 EASY PRAYER WALK IDEAS.
Happy Sunday Friends ! Welcome to another episode of Sunday breeze, glad to have you all here.
On today’s episode, I will be sharing with you what has really helped me on my faith’s journey for quite a while now. I remembered growing up as a child, my beautiful mum used to encourage me and my siblings that as Christians, we can pray anywhere and anytime. She will say ” Cover yourself with the blood of Jesus “
Fast forward to when I was much older, I realised she was telling us about prayer walks and how important it is for us as Christians to be aware of the importance. I know some are wondering what is a prayer walk?
Prayer walk is a practice of praying while you take a walk. Prayer walk is a creative way to connect with God.
Since I started prayer walking as part of my daily life , my life has so much changed for the best. Anywhere I am, I find myself praying and pouring my heart to God and it has been working so well for me and I will encourage you to start practicing it as well. You don’t need to say it loud but you can be playing quietly in your heart.
And I know some of you may ask, is it scriptural or is it in line with God’s word? well let’s take look at this verse
1 Thessalonians 5:17 says it all
” Pray without ceasing ” and since walking is what we do on a daily , therefore anything that prompts us to pray regardless of the time, place or position is line with the Bible.
Guys , remember in Joshua 6, God directed the Israelite’s to march around the city of Jericho, their obedience brought down the walls of the city of Jericho, their obedience bought down the walls of the city.
So how do I prayer work? Prayer walking isn’t that hard but there are few tips to help you get started:
- PRAY AROUND WORK PLACE, SHOPPING, NEIGBOURHOOD- There may be someone in your neighbourhood. workplace that needs your prayer, so it’s good if you can pray in your mind wherever you are and intercede for everyone around you.
- PRAYER WALK IN NATURE AND PRAY FOR WHATEVER COMES TO YOUR MIND – I do this all the time . Sometimes getting out in a natural setting can be very peaceful . In fact , you do not even need to walk around and pray, you can spread a blanket or mat in the park, bring some foods along with your bible and you can have a prayer picnic.
- PRAYER WALK INSIDE YOUR HOUSE – Why not? You live there. I see nothing wrong with walking around areas of your home and asking God to bless and keep your house safe. This is so important and I cannot stress this enough guys. I saturate my house with prayer all the time and cover everything within with the blood of Jesus. Even when I’m cooking.
- PRAY FOR YOURSELF WHEN YOU WALKING – Lastly, while praying for others, always remember to pray for yourself, this will strengthen your spiritual being. It is important to always been in prayer mood at all time.
Prayer walk has deeply helped me in my faith journey , I am happy to tell you that It has strengthened my relationship and communication with God. It is also helpful for busy people who want to still stay in touch with God.
This is also a way to build your faith and is also an excellent physical exercise good for the body.
