If you are unfamiliar with the term “prayer walk,” then you’re about to learn how you can pray for your home, your school, and the people around you! Prayer walks involve praying for the places, and people in those places, where we desire to see God’s presence.

Prayer walking is one of the coolest things to do, especially when you see your prayers eventually fulfilled right in front of you.  God promises that when we ask for something in his name, he will deliver. So why not try to ask God for blessings over the places you go and the people in your life?

When it comes to prayer walks, think of what that place needs from the Lord. If you want to pray over your house, pray for your roommates, your family, or whoever else you live with. Pray for security and safety over your house and the people in it.

Ephesians 6:18 says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

No matter where you are, it’s always a good time to pray! There is no such thing as a bad prayer. Present any and every request to God and he will always hear you!

Start with a prayer walk in your home. Whether that be your apartment, your dorm room at college, or wherever else you call home. Once you’ve prayed over your house, take a prayer walk through your neighborhood! Then, do the same on your drive to work, praying for every house you pass and every community you drive through. You never know which places are in definite need of prayer!

You can even use verses from the Bible to guide you through your prayer walk to get some ideas of what to ask God for.

2 Samuel 7:28-29 says, “Now therefore may it please you to bless the house of your servant, so that it may continue forever before you. For you, O Lord God, have spoken, and with your blessing shall the house of your servant be blessed forever.” 

Ask God for blessings over your home. There is nothing too big or too small to request from God! Ask God to grant grace, security, health, etc. to your home and any other blessings you can think of!

Another verse I like to think of is Psalm 122:7. It says, “Peace be within your walls and security within your towers.” Let’s pray for peace and safety no matter where we’re at. Especially in our houses, apartments, dorms, or wherever we find ourselves spending most of our time, ask God for these things.

After doing a prayer walk, write down the things you prayed for. Then you can eventually look back and see how it has impacted your home! 🙂

Start today with as quick as a 5-minute prayer walk! See what and who needs prayer, and start there!

Working out isn’t for everyone. The thought of going on a long run or weight-lifting is enough to keep many on the couch. If those options don’t sound appealing to you, going on a long walk can be just as beneficial! While a normal walk doesn’t reap the same benefits as a run, there are a few ways to pump up your walk to burn even more calories! Follow these simple steps to a great walking workout.

  1. Pumping your arms at a fast pace will increase your speed and give your arms some cardio!
  2. Do one minute intervals of small, quick steps!
  3. Set a goal for each day’s work out and don’t stop until you reach it!
  4. If you’re hiking or on a grassy terrain, use poles to help build upper muscles.
  5. Make sure to keep your back straight! When your bones and muscles are aligned you can walk faster and torch more calories!
  6. Keep the same pace!
  7. To add strength training to your work out, stop every 5 minutes and do one minute of push-ups, squats, sit-ups, etc.

Now you don’t have any excuses not to work out! It’s time to get up and get moving!

XOXO,
