1 Timothy 2:1 – “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.”
The Power of Intercession
Do you ever find yourself feeling weak in the place of prayer? It’s quite common when we focus solely on our own needs. However, the key to strengthening your prayer life lies in cultivating the habit of intercession and supplication. In the following sections, I will delve deeper into the benefits of intercession and supplication.
A Divine Inspiration
During the writing of this manuscript, I received a divine inspiration from the Holy Spirit. I used to go on prayer walks intermittently, but this evening was different. I felt a burden in my heart for a dear friend, and that’s when the Holy Spirit inspired me to embark on a prayer walk for him.
Here’s what I did: I switched off my phone, left it at home, took some money with me, and hailed a cab from Irete, a location in Owerri, Nigeria, to Port Harcourt Road. Importantly, I intentionally carried only enough money for the journey there, with the plan to walk back home, which would take approximately an hour. This decision allowed me to focus entirely on prayer without the temptation to cut my walk short.
Tips for an Effective Prayer Walk
Choose the Right Time: To minimize distractions, prayer walks are best done either early in the morning or in the evening.
Be Prepared: During your walk, carry a pocket Bible and a torch to help you read and stay safe in the dark.
By embracing the practice of prayer walks and intercession, you can transform your prayer life and make a positive impact on the lives of those you pray for.
