PrayerWalk Journal

A note in case anyone is following my process on walking.

I have been walking everyday, just not regularly at 6 a.m. My journal has been done on hard copy over the last few days due to time restraints and other commitments. I hope to be writing more online of my daily adventures with prayer and walking my community in the days ahead.

Today, my prayer heart was awakened while driving. An elderly man was standing by the freeway, holding on to a railing bar with one hand and his oxygen tank with the other. I had no way of getting to him, I was on the other side of the road going a different direction. My only resource for helping was to ask God to send someone to check if he was okay and to give him strength to carry on with his walk. I felt helpless on the physical realm to help this man, but I know God heard my prayer.

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant to you support. Psalms 20:1-2

We do not need to just walk or be on our knees to pray, we can pray anywhere, doing anything, at anytime. We have an awesome God who hears our prayers and asks us to pray unceasing. We just need to do our part, which I must admit, I do get my mind focused on trivial things, rather then heavenly ones.

Thank You Father for Your promises and for hearing my prayers, be with that elderly man today, surround him with heavenly hosts to guide and protect. Forgive me when my mind is focused on things of this world. Help me to have a mind that is constantly in a state of uncreasing prayer. God, this is not possible without the help of Your Holy Spirit. Thank you that You are transforming me daily and thank You for drawing me back into prayer. In Jesus name. Amen.
