Our purpose was clear; as we stepped off the plane, onto the ground of the Asian country. The powers of darkness were hovering like never before. We were there to prayer walk around particular cities, their schools and universities, as well as the government agencies and temples.
The team of intercessors could sense a strong presence of evil, upon this particular city; held captive by strongholds of idol worship.
Prayer has the power to hold back all the forces of darkness, dispelling the presence of evil and bringing the bright Light of Christ. As we walked, we began to pray God’s Word over this place. His Word declares, “At the Name of Jesus, Satan has to flee.” The Lord is our Light and our salvation. Whom then shall we fear? Jesus came to seek and to save that which is lost. It is not His will that any man should perish without Him.
How does one prayer walk? You begin by asking God to create in you a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within you. Dress yourself in the armor as you go out to battle in prayer, with weapons that are mighty to push back the darkness of the enemy. Ask the Lord to open your eyes and show you how to pray His heart, for the area your feet will trod.
God showed us a man sweeping the pavement. We asked that He would prepare the way, for this man to go to heaven. We saw another group of men gathering old bricks and we prayed to the God of heaven, that He would tear down the walls of idolatry, so that they might invite in, the True and Living God. We saw a woman selling fragrant flowers and asked the Lord to save her and make her the fragrance of Christ, to the lost and the saved.
You can prayer walk in your neighborhood, around your office space, even around your church. Ask the Lord to show you His heart for the area you will prayer walk. Do not delay. Put on those gospel shoes of peace. Invite one or two others to go with you or just go with God. You will be amazed at what He will speak to you and through you!
Prayer in Motion:
Lord Jesus, may I go out and pray over the areas you have placed on my heart. I trust You to pray through me, all the things that are on your heart! In Jesus Name. Amen
