‘Ask and You Will Receive”
“Ask and you will receive….” (John 16:24)
This past January Wendy Yeager from Keep Watch Prayer Ministry came and shared on a Sunday morning about the prayer walks her ministry had begun in our local schools. That month we began a weekly prayer walk at Keyser. If we really believe that prayer changes things, then how can we not be in prayer for the children, families and staff in the neighborhood where God has called Grace Church to serve. As a result of our weekly prayer walks we experienced change and growth in relationships at the school. We prayed not only for the students and staff, but for each tutor from Grace that served at the school as well.
The Keep Watch prayer walks are now taking place in over ten schools in the Toledo area. We are excited to start walking and praying again at Keyser this week. Our prayer walks will take place on Wednesday mornings at 7:45 am beginning on September 16. We walk through the halls and pray over every room. We will then pray at the flag pole at 8:15 am in hopes that staff and parents will join us. You can join us too! Everyone is welcome.
Wendy’s vision for Keep Watch Prayer is: “To see every school covered in prayer so that the power and presence of God are experienced in our communities.” Even when God’s people were living in exile He called them to be in prayer for the city in which He had placed them: “Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7. We’re starting with the kids and the schools in hope that God’s presence will be experienced in their lives, in the neighborhood, and in our city.
