PRAYER WALK FOR MADISON
Join us in prayer walking through every neighborhood in Madison!
Prayer walking is a way to take action towards spiritual change by going into the midst of our community and asking God to pour out His healing love and freeing grace. We encourage you to join us and welcome God's kingdom, carry His presence, and contend for the lost hearts in our city.
1. Where should I go?
Start in your local neighborhood!
Our goal is to pray through every neighborhood. Check out this map for reference, and keep watch on our Instagram to see updates on what's been covered.
Consider looking up a neighborhood before going, to learn about local leaders and community needs to pray for.
When you're done with a prayer walk, head over to this form so that we can track our prayers and neighborhoods as we go.
2. What should I do?
Take the long way home and drive through your neighborhood on your way home from work. You could even turn on worship music to facilitate your prayers.
As you walk through a neighborhood, stop at a park or sit on a curb to focus on the area and people around you. Maybe journal your prayers, or love on the person nearby.
Take time to slow down and be mindful of the nature, homes, and neighbors all around you. You can pray out loud or silently, whatever you are comfortable with.
Reach out to your house church, or through a connect group, or invite members of the community to join you. Group prayers are powerful and inspiring.
3. How can I pray?
1. Ask God to reveal His heart to you for the people of that neighborhood.
2. Pray for individuals to be restored spiritually and physically.
3. Pray for the revival of Madison.
