Prayer Walk


I had a busy weekend. It was my weekend to work, and things there were a little hectic. Sunday evening was really nice, though. For the past few years my church has had a prayer walk shortly before school starts for the year. We split into small groups and walk around different schools in our town. We pray at the Christian School, the elementary, junior high and high school. We also have a team go to the University and some people stay at church and pray for the home schooled. This is our first year of not having a child in school, so we just went where we were asked to go. Bob and I ended up praying at the High School with a friend who happens to be my prayer partner. We walked around the school, praying for different things as they were brought to our minds, including safety, peer pressure, teachers who are good role models, good decisions from the administration and school board... It was a beautiful evening and a blessing to walk and pray at the same time. We were reminded again that these kids are the future leaders and what better thing could we do for them but to pray!

"a little hectic" at work? Hopefully soon that "hectic" will be gone for good.
