Every home and street in Abbotsford will be prayed for starting later this month.
The Prayer Walk returns to local neighbourhoods beginning on Sept. 26 and running until Oct. 2.
The event debuted last year in Abbotsford and has now grown to include walks in Burnaby, Surrey and Vancouver.
Organizers hope to pray all 1,280 streets in Abbotsford. According to the event’s website, a total of 95 streets have been covered by volunteers so far.
The website states that there are many churches participating in this inter-denominational initiative. It is open to all Jesus believing churches, organizations and individuals. “We are excited to see how God will use this expansion of united prayer for his purposes and glory,” reads the website.
Volunteers can participate in the Prayer Walk as an individual or in a group. Organizers are limiting signups to three entries per street until all streets have been covered.
An example on the website of what a short prayer could be is: “Father, would you bless and breakthrough in this neighbourhood. Cause your name to be hallowed, Your kingdom to come and your will to be done on this street as it is in heaven.”
There are also tentative plans to have a celebration event on Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. at Central Heights Church in Abbotsford. Organizers state that COVID-19 restrictions may change things, but the event will also be livestreamed.
