Neighborhood Prayer Walks

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:6-7


A Little History

We believe that prayer is the most important part of our ministry day.   From our very first trip, prayer walks have been on the daily schedule (thank you Adventures in Missions for modeling this so well!).  We have a heart to pray over every street in our neighborhood as much as possible.


How Groups Are Involved

Your group will have the opportunity to walk around our neighborhood with one of our interns and pray over our community.  This involves praying over streets and houses, and sometimes even our neighbors.  We understand this may be a daunting prospect for some people, but we strongly believe that God calls us to be a people of prayer.  We are constantly surprised by how God shows up when we seek Him in prayer.




Relational Prayer Walks

A Little History

Many years ago, we began prayer walks in the Cass Corridor.  Anchored by the Detroit Rescue Mission and Neighborhood Service Organization, the Cass Corridor was a hub for the homeless community.   Over the past few years, the community has begun to change as gentrification has had its way in the surrounding areas.  However, many of our friends in the homeless community are still present.  Our goal of these prayer walks is to share the love of Christ with the people of the Cass Corridor through building relationships, praying for them, and when possible, praying over them.


How Groups Are Involved

Groups may have the opportunity to walk with one of the Detroit Love Interns through the Cass Corridor.  Similar to our neighborhood prayer walks, we spend our time walking around and praying for the Cass Corridor neighborhod.  However, on these prayer walks we tend to spend more time talking and praying with people.
