Prayer Walking

Prayer Walking is for everyone. We all do it. If you walk to your car and ask God for protection on your ride home you were prayer walking. If you prayed for inner peace as you walked to your work place, you were prayer walking.

I began praying the pews several years ago at 7:00 am on Sunday mornings and as others joined we walked throughout the building praying for our ministers, choir, teachers, ushers, hospitality and greeters. After reading Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson we circled the Sanctuary every Sunday 7 times. We continue to bless and pray over the pews, classrooms and doors. What joy we have experienced praying for our clergy, congregation and each other.

We are expanding Prayer Walking to the interval between services at 10:30 am, beginning at the Prayer Wall across from the Welcome Center. We will Prayer Walk throughout HPCUMC, for the various ministries, and weather permitting around the building.

There will be prayer suggestions, but we will rely on the promptings of the Holy Spirit to lead us individually in our prayers for HPCUMC, our congregation, and community. We may walk as a group or on your own as you go to worship, classes or meetings.

Prayer Walking unites us for a common purpose, on a common route, toward a common destination. Join Prayer Walkers each Sunday at 7:00 am or 10:30 am at the Prayer Wall. Praying to see you there.
