Prayer walking

What a fantastic morning we had today. My Chapel at Waingroves were challenged to prayer walk throughout the village, in order to let God know how much we love the village and its people.

Gathering at 10.00 a.m. were 10 people, five of whom couldn’t carry out the walk for a variety of reasons but who wished to associate themselves with it and so prayed us on our way. It was a glorious mix of Anglican friends from St. James and Waingroves Methodist. Christian Unity in its best sense.

We prayed in the Chapel foyer, at the local school, at the pub (recently closed), community centre, local woods and the corner of Queen Street. We prayed for Gods protection over the village, for those who might be dabbling in unwholesome areas of life, for the young people with little to do, for those who are grieving and those who are ill. We claimed the village for God.

In between all the prayers we learnt a lot about the history of the village, its people, had good fellowship, met some villagers and generally enjoyed ourselves.

Heres to the next one on December 13th
