Prayer-Walking

Prayer-walking is applying the power of prayer directly to a specific geographical location. That location may represent a stronghold of the principalities of darkness or it may represent of place of dedication to God. In either case, it should be God-directed.

God specifically directed us to pray at the Emancipation Oak in Hampton, Virginia, on August 20, 2006. There He asks us to repent for the corporate sins of our nation and for our own sins as well. For the specific things we prayed at the Emancipation Oak look here.

Just as Daniel prayed for Israel so were we to pray for America. God requires intercessory prayer before He will move. He wants to renew His covenant with America more than we do. The number of people praying is not as important as the fervency of the prayers.

If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

There are places in your neighborhood where God may be directing you to pray. The important thing is to listen to what He says carefully and then obey Him. Your prayers are significant, especially if you are praying the prayers that the Spirit of God is giving you. You will not only be praying. You will be prophesying.

Pray with God’s Word to you. Take authority over strongholds in your area in the name of Jesus. Before going to pray it is usually a good idea to fast. Take other prayer warriors with you. The prayer of agreement is very powerful. Our founding fathers prayed. God heard their prayer and established a covenant with them for this nation. We, too, must pray that God will renew this great covenant.

Prayer walking is not only strategic. It is also tactical. Jesus needs troops on the ground. We are told to go into the highways and byways and seek out the lost sheep. Jesus told the parable of the lost sheep. The shepherd would leave the ninety-nine sheep and go after the one that was lost. Are we prepared to go out into the neighborhood and workplace with the Gospel?

There is no doubt that God has called you and members of your church or community to pray in and around your vicinity. Your prayers are equally important to God. Are you ready for an exciting adventure? (See Teaching on Prayer-Walking.)
