Prayer Walking

Seek the welfare of the city I have deported you to. Pray to the Lord on its behalf, for when it has prosperity, you will prosper.”

Jeremiah 29:7

Al Santino wrote Prayer walking is slowing down and stopping… We are listening for God’s voice to tell us, “You need to make an observation here.”

When turning 65, I had the idea to take the bus through the city. One thing learns there are lonely people without hope Jesus declare these words. When He saw the crowds, He felt compassion for them because they were weary and worn out, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples,  “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

John Calvin wrote My intention was only to furnish a kind of rudiments, by which those who feel some interest in religion might be trained to true godliness. And I toiled at the task chiefly for the sake of my countrymen, the French, multitudes of whom I perceived to be hungering and thirsting after Christ, while very few seemed to have been duly imbued with even a slender knowledge of him. That this was the object which I had in view is apparent from work itself, which is written in a simple and elementary form adapted for instruction.

The question, who is your neighbour, how should you treat your neighbour.? Why should you pray for them? Scripture states fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility, consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his interests but also for the interests of others. Make your attitude that of Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:2-5

Someone once stated when you encounter an individual; whether they are a beggar, a person of the streets or addict, or your next doors living in quiet neighbourhood, and ifencounter them briefly, or over long period time. You need to treat them with dignity and respect that is your neighbour is a person meet every day whether it is your neighbour, the homeless the beggar on street or drug addict. They are created in God-image, and bear the scars of sins.

The bottom line, all humanity has sinned, and we have fallen short of God’s glory. That why pray for them because they have souls

If we do not love our them and with all our heart, and our soul and our mind. How could we say we love them?

Dr. Tim Kellor wrote, By depicting a Samaritan helping a Jew, Jesus could not have found a more forceful way to say that anyone at all in need – regardless of race, politics, class, and religion – is your neighbour. Not everyone is your brother or sister in faith, but everyone is your neighbour, and you must love your neighbour.”

The bottom line I fall short. Of this, and I do not love my neighbour with all my heart, soul and my mind and it work in the process!!!

You need three elements, to reach the lost, one someone, to preaches, someone to prayer, and most importantly, you need Holy Spirit to move through Christians and non-Christians.

In Timothy 2:1 it states, First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone,

The lost needs Jesus as a believer, whether rich or poor, As follower of Christ we need to pray for them through intercession prayer

I believe Joan Cushine penned-these words, and The Christian is freed from the bondage of sin; the penalty of sin; the guilt of sin; the dominion of sin; the power of sin. And finally, we are freed from the fear of death and hell—such things we are freed from. But there are two sides to such questions as this. There are some things that we are rid of. First, we are freed to all that is in the Bible. Here is a never-failing treasury filled with boundless stores of divine grace. It is the bank of heaven—we may draw from it as much as we please. Next, we are freed to the throne of grace. We have a right to go to God’s throne at all times. We have a right to enter into the heavenly city. Only those who believe in Christ atoning work could make this claim.

That why we pray for the lost would be part of God’s family. As C.S Lewis stated, I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God. It changes me.”God gives us the grace to see through His and is helpless instead of his own eyes.

The parable of the good Samaritan is an excellent example of how you treat your neighbours. The moral of fable that its humanity, which is the victims of sin, is incapably rescuing himself; the good Samaritan is Jesus Christ. Jesus said the lawyer, ”go and do likewise.” Dr. Tim Kellar, That man might be half dead, but we were destroyed—dead in our sins (Eph. 2:1). Yet Christ did not leave us to be the living dead. On the cross, he did not merely risk his life or purity to help us; he freely gave it. Today, he speaks life into our death—even when we cannot love him or anyone else. He comes to our brokenness and vulnerability to rescue us by his grace. In this way, Jesus himself is the Good Samaritan.

We must say to ourselves something like this: ‘Well, when Jesus looked down from the cross, he didn’t think “I am giving myself to you because you are so attractive to me.” No, he was in agony, and he looked down at us – denying him, abandoning him, and betraying him – and in the greatest act of love in history, he STAYED. He said, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” He loved us, not because we were lovely to him, but to make us lovely. That is why I am going to love my spouse.’ Speak to your heart like that, and then fulfill the promises you made on your wedding day.”

The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves, still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God’s sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at the very same time. This creates a radical new dynamic for personal growth. It means that the more you see your flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and unforgettable God’s grace appears to you. But on the other hand, the more aware you are of God’s grace and acceptance in Christ, the more able you are to drop your denials and self-defences and admit the true dimensions and character of your sin.”
