Prayer Walking Prayer Walking is run by God, the battle is for the heart, and the weapon is LOVE
Goal • To Win People for Jesus!
What is Prayer Walking? • It’s following the example that Jesus gave us, to go out by 2’s (if possible) Luke 10. • “Standing in the gap” by praying for people. Ezekiel 22:30-31. • Jesus gave us authority over the enemy. Luke 10:19 • Seeking God’s guidance in whom to approach. Matt. 18:14
Pray, then Pray Some More A church in Phoenix, Arizona did an experiment. They chose 160 names from a phone book & divided them in half. 80 names were prayed over for 90 days. Then they called all 160 people. Of the ones not prayed for only one said “yes”. Of the ones they DID pray for, 69 people said “yes”! IF you PRAY… God will do the heavy lifting!! The Praying Church Idea Book by: Douglas Kamstra pg 73
Choose An Area The area that you choose to pray for can be your neighborhood, or your prayer partners neighborhood, or even a part of a city that is in bad shape. That’s up to you and God. Preferably an area that you can walk around daily. Praying for the people within the houses of this neighborhood.
What to Pray For • Claim the area for the Kingdom of God • Petition God to tear down the spiritual strongholds, to bind, and rebuke the enemy • Ask for the Holy Spirit to be poured out • Ask for wisdom, love and guidance in whom to approach • Petition God in the name and authority of Jesus, the risen savior of the world
Now What? • Be patient… let God take the lead • Be prepared with a handout, such as a card with your name, or a scripture, or website • Ask to visit or invite over to your home • Ask if they have a prayer request, add it to your daily prayers • Invite to church or offer bible studies • KISS principle - KEEP IT SIMPLE SWEETIE
