Prayerwalk

What is a Prayerwalk?

Prayer walking is a lifestyle of unceasing prayer.

It is centered in a relationship with Jesus Christ and provides an avenue for on-site prayer toward the Kingdom. It is ongoing and flexible because it is not dependent on a program or process. It is personal and adaptable to any situation or context because it is based on unbroken communion and fellowship with an all knowing, all powerful and ever-present God, not on restricting rules and geographical boundaries. Wherever a believer goes, he or she can walk with Christ in unceasing prayer for people (see 1 Thess. 5:17; 1 Tim. 2:1-4). Prayerwalking is therefore walking with God in unbroken fellowship.

Prayer walking is walking while praying.

It is a prayer method or approach. It is not the only way to pray but one way to pray. Thus, it can involve all types of walking and all types of traveling from one point to another. That is why some people prayerwalk and others prayer drive. Some prayer snow mobile and others prayer bicycle. Some practice prayer flying and others practice prayer in-line skating. Prayerwalking is therefore a term that is often used to describe field-based prayer. Steve Hawthorne calls it “on-site prayer” while others call it “intercession on location” or “prayer in motion.”

Prayer walking is intentional prayer toward the Great commission.

It is focused on specific people in specific locations, neighborhoods, cities and nations. It is deliberate intercession on behalf of people who have spiritual needs. It is purposeful or purpose-driven prayer that is evangelistic in its focus. Prayerwalking leads to the fulfillment of God’s redemptive work in people’s lives (see Matt. 6:9-10).

Prayer walking is spiritual warfare prayer.

When a believer prays toward God’s redemptive work, he or she is storming the gates of hell through offensive prayer. The devil begins to tremble, the darkness is penetrated and the Holy Spirit is unleashed in people, families and communities (see Acts 4:23-33). Spiritual strongholds of sin and bondage in people’s lives come down as believers intercede for their salvation, spiritual health and spiritual needs (see 2 Cor. 10:4). Truly, the gates of hell cannot prevail against the church as it is on the offensive through intentional prayer toward the Great Commission (see Matt. 16:18).
