United in Prayer for Schools-Tampa Schools Prayer Walk

What is prayer walking? Is it biblical to go on a prayer walk?

Answer: Prayer walking is the practice of praying on location, a type of intercessory prayer that involves walking to or near a particular place while praying. Some people believe that being close to a location allows them to “pray nearer to pray clearer.” Prayer walks are taken by individuals, groups, and even whole churches. They can be as short as a block or as long as many miles. The idea is to use the five senses—sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch—to increase the intercessor’s understanding of pray

We are commanded to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), and since walking is something, we can do daily, surely part of praying without ceasing is praying while walking. God hears all prayers offered by those who abide in Christ (John 15:7), regardless of time, place, or position. At the same time, there certainly is no command against prayer walking, and anything that prompts us to pray is worthy of consideration. Let us humble ourselves and take up the mantle of intercession today…. https://hope14me.org/2020/12/21/prayer-walking-with-my-chucks/

Why Prayer is Important

Today, more than ever, schools need our prayers. Whether you pray by yourself or gather a group to pray with you, remember that prayer is doing something! God covets the prayers of his people and our educators, administrators and students need the prayers of the Christians in their schools. Most importantly, by praying, you can remind others to pray as well for continuing needs, such as: Jl

  • Students who have difficult home lives.
  • Pressure to pass standardized tests.
  • Cuts in funding.
  • Public perception that schools aren’t doing enough.
  • Low salaries for teachers.
  • Kids who aren’t prepared for school.
  • School bullying.
  • Dealing with Social Media.
Join us as we pray together for our nation’s schools, students, and teachers. These prayers for school focus on a variety of needs including safety, purpose, focus, and more!

Let us intercede for teachers, students, parents, administrators, custodians, Law Enforcement, and other staff at our public and private schools. Don’t forget the many parents who are now homeschooling. Their task is vitally important to their students! Our Children are a treasure to be nourished and encouraged.
