Prayerwalking (Week 2: Day 5)

Intentional Prayerwalking Today

According to 1 Tim. 2:8, where are we supposed to pray?

How do people in your culture usually pray? How do you usually pray?

What is the prayer position in 1 Tim. 2:8?

See how many prayer positions can you think of.

According to Mark 16:15, where are we supposed to take the gospel? If we were to be honest with ourselves, we should “go and tell” but what most of us do is say, “come and hear” the gospel at our church. Our rationale for this is what we call a castle concept or a castle mentality. We believe people do not want to be bothered in their homes. Prayerwalking can breakthrough that perceived or real barrier.

Throughout Today:

  • Prayerwalk (or prayer drive) a certain area
  • Notice people
  • Pray for at least three specific people you have never prayed for before
  • Seek to pray specifically with the insights the Holy Spirit gives you
  • Be available (today or in the future) when the Holy Spirit provides an opportunity to talk evangelistically to any of your three people. Do not be surprised when you are caused to see them again.
  • Come back tonight for some reflection.

Evening Reflection

  • Who did you see today?
  • How did you pray for them?
  • Did you have the opportunity to talk with them?
  • If so, did they share anything you could take to the Lord as a specific prayer?
  • What did you discern about their spiritual health?
  • What would you say about your prayerwalking experience(s) today or this week?



  • We are supposed to pray everywhere
  • The usual prayer position is head bowed, eyes closed, (sometimes with folded hands)
  • With hands lifted (probably with eyes open)
  • Some of the various prayer positions are: On your face, kneeling before the Lord, bowing your head (usually eyes closed), standing before God, arms outstretched looking to heaven (email me if you think of others tom@tomsavage.us
  • We are supposed to take the gospel into all the world

The Confidence of Hope

In 1 Peter 3:15 we find these words. “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”

The hope that we have in Christ gives us the confidence we need to be able to share our faith. We are able to share and can be ready to share at all times because of the hope that is within us.

Witnessing is a major fear for many people; but it need not be. Because of the work of God in our lives, because of the Lord living inside us, and because of the work of the Holy Spirit, we have a story to tell and can have the confidence to tell that story. Most of us just need some practice and that is precisely what the enemy does not want you do; practice. However, because of the hope we have from God, the enemy’s desires can be thwarted. Today, tell somebody about “the hope that is in you.”
