  Prayer walking is the practice of praying on location, a type of intercessory prayer that involves walking to or near a particular place while praying. Some people believe that being close to a location allows them to “pray nearer to pray clearer.” Prayer walks are taken by groups and even individuals. They can be as short as a block or as long as many miles. The idea is to rely upon the Holy Spirit by using all of our senses to increase the intercessor’s understanding of specific prayer needs.

  For example, if you walk through your neighborhood looking for things to pray about, you might come across a yard that is extremely untidy and rundown. This might prompt you to pray for the health, both physical and spiritual, of the residents inside. Some groups prayer walk around the United Nations or the site at the World Trade Center, prompting prayer for the leaders of this world and the families of those killed back on September 11th. Most people feel they can concentrate and direct their prayers more effectively by walking near the people and places as they walk the busy streets of New York City.

  What is important is that we are all commanded to “pray without ceasing” (
1 Thessalonians 5:17), and since walking is something we do daily, surely part of praying without ceasing is praying while walking. God hears all prayers offered by those who abide in Christ (John 15:7), regardless of time, place, or position. At the same time, there certainly is no command against prayer walking, and anything that prompts us to pray is worthy of consideration.
