Praying for Campuses (Part 5): Walking Prayer

Recently, I have been concentrating on prayer.  Most of my posts have been applicable to anyone and everyone.  Now I want  to transition the conversation in the direction of specifically praying for colleges and universities.  The next 8 days I will be discussing the ways you can pray for a campus.  Even if you are not a student our colleges and universities need you prayers.  Please take time to pray for the students, faculty, professional staff and administration of the institutions that are so important within our culture.

There are many ways to pray. The following list is just a few examples of how you could pray effectively for your campus.

1)  Single Prayer

2)  Scripture Prayer

3)  Group Prayer 

4)  Watchful Prayer

5)  Walking Prayer – This is a type of a watchful prayer. Instead of being in one place, move around. Walk around the campus and pray for those people you pass by. This can be extremely effective while you are walking between classes. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.  Psalm 130:6 A watchman in the Old Testament was a guard who would stand on the walls of the city and watch outside the city for approaching trouble and inside the cit walls for internal strife. Consider yourself a watchman for your campus and desire for the Lord to come.

For Drexel I have developed a Walking Prayer routine.  I tend to walk around the campus and pray over different parts of the University at different locations.  This Drexel Walking Prayer is best way I introduce churches and supporters to what my campus ministry is about.
