A lot is canceled right now. Walking outdoors – or driving, if the heat or mobility issues make that more appealing – is not. Why not take a prayer walk or drive in your own neighborhood or right around the church? Start in your driveway or in the church parking lot and head out, making bigger and bigger circles. As you do, ask for God to open your eyes, ears, and heart to those you might encounter. Take care to notice what and whom you normally wouldn’t.
Thank God for and pray for the Spirit to work in the lives of the people who live or work in the area. Smile and wave. Reflect afterward on what you experienced. In this time of physical distancing, a prayer walk or drive is one way both to be blessed and to be a blessing to others.
