Prayer Walking Communities

 

In Jeremiah 29:4-7 we find God talking to a community of believers who feel out of place and isolated  in their community and rather than separate themselves from the community, God encourages them to settle down, get involved in the community and to pray:

This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: “Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” 

Many of us want to see more of Jesus at work in our communities and want to follow these words of God. There are many ways we pray for our community, but we want to encourage each other to get out on the streets and to prayer walk taking the Kingdom of God with them into the places and amongst the people who do not yet know Jesus. It is always easier and more fun to do this if we are not on our own, but part of a little community that supports and encourages each other to do this.

We want to encourage each other to be part of a Prayer Walking Community that covers the area they live in. We currently have 7 communities. Each community has leaders and they will lead the community into the following:

  • Organise 1 official prayer walk a month
  • Oversee a WhatsApp group for the community where people can message in with a prayer request for their area or say I’m free tomorrow afternoon at 2pm is anyone free for a prayer walk with me?
  • Organise a social once a term where the group can get together to chat and pray.

If you would like to be part of a community, have a look at the areas we currently cover and click on the link to find out more or sign up. After signing up your details will be passed onto the leaders who will be in contact with you soon. If the area you are in isn’t yet covered by a community, do get in touch with Cath@scbc.org.uk and we’ll look at how we can start a community there.
