What is the London Prayer Loop?

Inspired by the twenty-four walks that Transport for London created around the outside of London totaling 150 miles (242 km).  Neighbourhood Prayer Network committed to using the same walk for the purpose of Prayer Walking the entire circumference of London each year.  To bless the capital, to pray for Gun and Knife crime in the City, to pray for our parliament, and to see an unprecedented move of God in London.

On our Virtual Prayer Walk page, you can download each of the Transport for London PDF's, watch a flyover video of each section, read scriptures we pray over each section and also get Wikipedia links to almost every village and town in London.

Why is it Virtual this year ?

This year because of COVID19 we were unable to organise the London Prayer Loop Walk physically.  A member of the network suggested we virtually prayer walk the London Loop and it opened up our eyes to the possibility of doing something new. 

Why are we praying ?

To surround London with prayer at this critical time. 

To enable people to virtually prayer walk London night or day from their own homes.

To pray blessing upon London.

To pray for the streets of London.  For all those who live and work on these streets.

To pray for an end to gun and knife crime.  For peace on the streets of London.

To pray for all those impacted by COVID19.

To pray for the future of London and our nation. 

To pray for Parliament and the leaders of our Nation.

To pray as you feel led for the things on your heart.

How ?

Have a look at our Section Map of the London Prayer Loop and choose which section(s) you would like to pray for.  On our Virtual Prayer Walk Page, you'll see a lot more information about that section.

If you decide to pray for the whole of the London Prayer Loop via our flyover video, it takes two hours.  You could set up some of your favourite Christian Music to play in the background as you pray.

Pray ahead of time for the virtual prayer walk.  You may want to do research online to aid prayer.  Look at the resources on this website that we have put together for the London Prayer Loop Walk that you may like to use on the day.  Familiarise yourself with Google Street view if you would like to use it and have not used it before.  If you have any maps, books or images of London that may help you pray put them together along with pen and paper to write down anything you may like to keep a record of.  There may be songs or worship that you would like to play at some point as you pray.
