I’m going to be honest, prayer walking didn’t happen for me yesterday. I had a packed full Saturday that began at 5:30am when I woke up to go waitress at a breakfast cafe and ended at 11:00pm when my family got home from a trip to the lake. It just didn’t happen. But this evening I did finally find some time to take my prayer walk. It’s a day late but better late than never, right!?

This evening I spent sometime walking and praying through out my own neighborhood because by the time I got home today it was almost dark and I knew my parents wouldn’t be up for me taking a nighttime stroll in a random neighborhood. I really enjoyed praying for my own neighborhood, though. I’m not sure why I’ve never done this before, but I for sure want to do it again. I know a lot of my neighbors so it made it more personal to pray for them and my community.

As I was praying and walking none of my neighbors were out and about for me to approach and ask for prayer requests from. But I did specifically focus quite a bit of prayer time into a certain neighbor of mine. He and his family have been close friends of my family’s for a long time now. Sadly, he and his wife are in the middle of getting a divorce. They have two sons that are friends with my sisters and my heart just aches for their entire family. I spent a large amount of my time praying over each individual in their family and for healing through out the situation.
