For the last couple of months I have tried to prayer-walk in our cul-de-sac and the one behind us.  It's not that hard- I pray for my neighbors as I walk the dogs!

I pray for neighbors trying to sell a home, those adjusting to an empty nest, and those struggling with aging parents- in New York and Florida.  I pray for neighbors who aren't talking to each other, for a family whose son is a marine, and for new neighbors making the adjustment to life in suburban Atlanta.  As I pray for them I ask God to meet their needs- for peace, for comfort, for discernment, for reconciliation, and for a recognition of God's grace.

I'm prayer-walking our building this week, as well.  As I walk the halls I am praying for children who are learning, discovering, growing, and experiencing God's love.  I pray for adult and youth volunteers- that they might be blessed with strength, patience, and a servant spirit. Above all, I offer prayers of thanksgiving for the opportunity to share the Good News through Vacation Bible School.

The great thing about prayer-walking is that you can do it anytime and anywhere- though I suggest you keep yours eyes open if you're driving!
