Prayer Walk

Moments ago, Beverly and I completed our church's prayer walk. It was absolutely incredible! The goal is to have someone in our church praying for our young people (school age) for the next 24 hours. The room is set up in 10 stages, and at each stage we prayed for different children by name. We prayed for specifics -- for them to be light, for them to overcome temptation, for them to share Jesus, etc. It was a quick 30 minutes, and one of the coolest prayer times I have been a part of. Thank you to Jacob and Heather Baker and Tonya Hamilton for coming up with this great idea and for setting up the room in such an inviting way. If you read this blog today and have not signed up, call Jacob at the office. You won't be sorry.

On Monday morning, Beverly and I will be flying to Boston to spend a week together celebrating our 30th anniversary. We will spend a couple of days in Boston, and then drive up the coast into Maine. From there we will drive over into New Hampshire, and then return to Boston. I am really looking forward to the cooler weather! Highs in Boston this week have been in the upper 70s and low 80s. I will try to blog some while we are gone. Please do pray for our safety.

I agree TOTALLY about the Prayer Walk - great idea!!!! I feel such a bond with each child we prayed over! Isn't it incredible how the Holy Spirit uses prayer to 'glue' us together!!!
