We may not be allowed to meet in our building to pray collectively, but we can still pray as we are outdoors taking our regular exercise. On Saturday 7th November, we would urge people to do this as part of our ‘Take Back The Streets’ prayer initiative, praying wherever you walk. In fact, we would suggest you do this every time you go for a walk, as praying and walking are excellent partners at any time of the day, week or year!
Maybe you could also take photos of where you have walked and send these to us; please also let us know the nuggets that God drops into your heart as you walk.
We have been praying the priestly blessing from Numbers 6 as we walk the streets and this can continue to be our prayer, for God’s blessing is what will ultimately make the difference in people’s lives:
“‘“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; 26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’ (Numbers 6:24-26)
Listen to Michael Card’s version of this blessing in song here. (Click on ‘here’ in the previous sentence to hear the song, ‘Barocha’.)
