The pandemic affected every community: schools, hospitals, neighbours, churches, friends and families. In 2021 we invited people to turn their daily walk into a prayer walk, to pray for our local communities in everyday ways, every day. The vision was and is, that together we reach every street, every road, every lane in the UK in prayer. We called this Prayerwalk 21 and launched the OIKOS prayer app
to resource this.
As we look ahead and especially to our united year of mission in 23-24, the vision for every street, road, lane, and home in the UK to be prayed for continues. To reach every street, road and lane prayer must become a habit, part of our everyday. We’ve got to ‘Just Pray’!
Can you commit to praying for 5 friends and neighbours who you want to come to know Jesus?
Can you do this for two minutes daily? Tag it to a habit you already have, maybe drinking your morning coffee/tea, whilst cleaning your teeth, going upstairs, walking the dog or boiling a kettle.
Can you pray for 20 minutes monthly with others who are praying for their 5? This might be on a WhatsApp group, video call or face to face. You might want to ‘Pray In a 3 in 23!’
We’d love to hear your stories. Share them on our Facebook page here.
