Neighborhood Prayer Walk Day is on Saturday, August 26, 2017 and I am so excited!!! Prayer is a powerful weapon. Many times when we pray, we just think about praying for ourselves, our family, our friends and ourselves (yes, I know I wrote that twice because it's so true). Well when was the last time you prayed for the Body of Christ? Or persecuted Christians in other parts of the world? World leaders-especially those who are unsaved? Or a difficult co-worker or supervisor? Or our neighborhood?
We spend quite a bit of time complaining about the problems of this world but shouldn't we be using our tongue to pray instead. The Lord placed it on my heart to campaign for the Neighborhood Prayer Walk Day- a day when we will lace up our walking shoes, walk our neighborhood and pray and decree God's Word over the place where He has set us.
I believe this simple act is going to transform some things in our neighborhood: neighbors will receive salvation, children will be protected, households will prosper, and the rulers of darkness will be evicted as we decree invisible boundary lines around our communities.
In Joshua 1:3 (NLT) God told Joshua "I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you". In Genesis 2:15, God placed man in the Garden of Eden to dress it and keep it. A deeper look into the word "keep" reveals that God's expectation was that Adam and Eve were to guard and keep watch over this place. Obviously, God had to have known there was some kind of danger or enemy to guard against. We later learn in chapter 3 that Satan was that enemy.
Why do you think you have been placed in your neighborhood? Have you ever asked God why you live where you live and what He wants you to do while you are there? Take a hold of this assignment to guard your neighborhood- the land that God has given you. It doesn't matter if you are a renter or an owner- God has given it to you to be the steward and the guard over it. Take your position on August 26th: walk and pray over your community and just watch and see what transformation takes place!
