Input invited for Norwich prayer walking strategy 

The next Transforming the Atmosphere meeting at the House of Prayer, Fishergate, Norwich, will focus on a strategy for prayer-walking for the city and region.


Prayer-walking is certainly not new, and Thomas Browne (1605-1682) was renowned for it! Many folk have been prayer-walking for years, but there is renewed interest in it as an important ministry to the whole of Norwich and the surrounding area.
It is well-known that people can influence the character of their own neighbourhood simply by being on the streets. The peaceful presence of ordinary citizens helps shape their locality. Prayer-walking gives the added opportunity to pray for and bless the area, and various places along the way (schools, shops and places of work etc).
Two members at Wroxham Road Methodist Church, Paul and Val Waller, have covered many miles in prayer-walking. They’ve also witnessed some extraordinary things along the way. “God longs to bless our communities and uses us to sow the seeds wherever we walk.”
Methods may vary but, whether walking as pairs or in small groups of up to four, any locality can be covered. It’s something that “ordinary” Christians can do, and it’s also possible for anyone stuck at home to pray thoughtfully over a street map with local people and places in mind.
With whole city-wide transformational revival in mind, Nigel Fox (recently-retired minister) asks, “What might happen if many more through the wider Church of Norwich rose to the challenge and effectively covered each locality with community-based prayer-walking?”
There will be an opportunity to explore aspects of prayer-walking and encourage one another to step out in prayer at the meeting on Monday 19th February, at 7.30pm. All are most welcome.
