The final part of the interview with "Mary," a church planter in India.
When asked to tell more about prayer walking, Mary says
“When I go prayer walking we go as a group. It’s not just going for a walk in the
morning. We are entering into
battle. We have to go fully clad
with spiritual armor—the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, the Word of Jesus,
fasting, praising and prayer.
Whoever we take with us, we teach.
First we submit ourselves to God and then we have battle with
“Each city is divided into voting divisions which contain a
number of colonies. We prepare
many prayer warriors and divide them up so that each colony is covered. My city
has 2,000 slum areas. The basis for prayer walking is the word of God. Jeremiah 29:7 says And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into
exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will
determine your welfare.” We
are to pray for the city and work for the city. The colony where I live is my responsibility. Every person is responsible to prayer
walk the area where they live. We
have a special strategy at certain times of the year. Whenever there is a Hindu festival, we prayer walk around
any big temple every morning and evening before the festival. We get good results from this.
“The same is true at election time. We surround the election booth with
prayer. We appoint people to pray
that there shouldn’t be any corruption or bad events. The government is very anti-Christian but because of prayer
they don’t do any damage to us.”
