Prayer-walking can be traced in Scripture as far back as Abraham in the Old Testament.  God told Abraham to “walk about the land….for I will give it to you.” As Abraham walked and physically saw the land—he was spiritually able to see the fulfilled promise of God with that same land completely filled with his children, his descendents.

One phrase that defines prayer-walking: Praying onsite with insight.  It is praying at a scene, without making one.

This definition is seen through several events in Jesus’ life.

When He wept over Jerusalem, He was on the Mount of Olives looking at the city. (Luke 19:41)

Though He could have spoken from a distance to raise Lazarus from the dead—instead He came to the very location of the grave, felt the grief of those close to Lazarus, walked to the gravesite and commanded Lazarus to come out!

Prayer-walking is one way Christians are demonstrating they desire God’s best for all the citizens of Clark County.
