Prayer Walk Guide

Prayer Walk Guide text

It all starts with prayer

Prayer walks are a great way to encounter God on a new campus and explore what God's doing there. This resource will help you lead a prayer walk.

Prayer walks help us step out of what's familiar and embrace a posture of curiosity, humility, and expectancy. When we prayer walk we throw ourselves into dependence on God, asking Jesus to show us how he's at work and where he's inviting us to join him. Paul models this in Acts 17:16-28 as he explores the city of Athens, observing the spiritual climate of the city and the presence of many idols, and ultimately recognizing the peoples' hunger to know God.

Try it yourself!

Gather some of your partners and use the guide below to help you prayer walk the campus you feel God is calling you to.
