On 2nd May, Christians from the various churches in Blandford met at Blandford Evangelical Church to Prayer Walk the town. We began with a time of worship and then in groups of five or six we made our away around Blandford stopping at various locations on the way to pray for people and the needs of the town's community.
In all there were six sessions beginning with a Bible reading followed by prayers. We prayed for Churches Together in Blandford, the older folk in our community, those suffering with mental and physical health, our young people, job losses and the businesses in the town. Lastly at the Methodist Church we prayed for families and individuals in need in our area thinking especially about those who use the services of the Foodbank which is situated inside the church.
Reverend Jonathan Triffitt, vicar at the Parish Church, drew the evening to a close with a prayer and then as one group we finished by saying the Lord's Prayer.
We had only been out for an hour and half but this time proved to be an uplifting experience, walking, talking and praying with other Christians. I leave you with the words of Ephesians Ch4 v 15 & 16 which opened our evening. "Instead, speaking in the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."
Why not try Prayer Walking for your town or village and see for yourself what God can do?
