Why do we have a Prayer Walk in Wake Forest? We take our walking orders from many scriptures from God’s inspired word. One example is II Chronicles 7:14-15
If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. (not only for Jerusalem but also applied to Wake Forest)
Prayer Walking is simply walking on the streets of Wake Forest praying from the Word of God for all the town officials and employees. As we walk we will name and pray for every official and employee, asking God’s blessing for their wisdom, knowledge and discernment in all their decisions. Praying like this, intercession, invites God, in Jesus’ name, to “hear from heaven” and forgive anything done in error and release healing in the neighborhoods we’re walking through.
Prayer Walking will help us “humble ourselves as we pray and seek God’s face” for each family, person, shop or business we walk past. Most of the time while Prayer Walking, God reveals special needs to pray for and blessings needed for the families. Our prayers often begin, “Oh My God, in your mercy bring healing, comfort and provision…”. Sometimes as we walk, people come out to ask for prayer and we will step out of the walk and pray.
Prayer Walking will be walking to ask God, in Jesus’ name, for continued blessing in Wake Forest as our excellent town public servants protect us and preserve our health and safety.
