A bunch of friends from my church and I went on what is called a “Prayer Walk” this evening. The weather was great for such a thing. We went out in groups of two or three and each took a street, wandered up it praying for people in houses and other buildings as we went by.
It’s a great idea, and I had never done one of these before. but as we were wandering up a street praying I couldn’t help but feel like George Clooney at the beginning of Million Dollar Baby where he is praying for several things and he finishes by telling the Lord “Other than that, You know what I need.”
It is difficult to pray specifically when you don’t know the needs of each house….but then I remember that God knows the specific needs and He can fill them…and then I don’t feel as awkward as George Clooney.
