Taking It To The Streets
The nation still groans under the fallout of the pandemic & is now emerging from a life under quarantine. We're beginning to grapple with the economic fallout from months on lock-down while simultaneously taking to the streets to raise voices for racial justice. Virtual church, virtual prayer rooms & the virtual prayer gatherings are still the norm, & requests for prayer still grows by tens of thousands daily. Openness to connect with God is high for those normally not open. So is the desire to connect with others to push out the sense of detachment that isolation brought us. The season is ripe for the Church to adapt & deploy as mission-minded purveyors of hope - as dealers of good - as agents of Christ in the footprint where they live.
This climate is not ideal
for the Church gathering,
but perfect for the Church going.
A Call To Prayer Walk invites everyone to pray - to pray nurturing, bold, Christ-centered prayers - to pray on the move where you live, for those you live among.
PICK YOUR BLOCKS
Choose a couple of blocks near your own residence & walk, jog, bicycle, skateboard or even slow-drive through them while inviting God to move in the lives of those who live there.
Chalk your walks
Take chalk on your walks & leave uplifting messages of hope, prayers, & drawings to encourage your neighbors & curate connection during contact restrictions & social distancing. It's family fun. Take pics & post them on your social media sites to encourage others across the nation. Use the hashtags: #ChalkYourWalk & #ChalkYourPrayerWalk
Check out this all-in-one resource to help you pray for your neighbors by name & address, learn ways to cultivate relationships when you're ready, & help them get to know God when they're ready. It's good for taking virtual prayer walks too.
