Covering Our City In Prayer
At Riverside, we want to be a church that joins Jesus in His mission to share His love with those who do not know Him. We believe that this starts with prayer. We pray that God would give us the same heart that He has for those who are far from Him. We pray for our community and neighbors and the struggles they are facing. We pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
This year we want to focus on praying for our neighbors in Coppell and the surrounding areas. To do this we have set an ambitious goal:
We want to see members of our church prayer walk every street in Coppell.
WHAT IS PRAYER WALKING?
In their book Prayer-Walking, Steve Hawthorne and Graham Kendrick define prayer walking as "praying on-site with insight." It is the act of walking through a particular setting, praying as you go. As we seek to pray for our neighbors, we have found that there is a special insight that comes from praying in sight of the places that these neighbors live their daily lives. It's really that simple.
There are a variety of ways to practice prayer walking. For instance, it can be done individually or with a group.
