London Prayer LOOP Walk – The story so far

A few years ago I had a stirring in my heart to prayer walk the Sandstone Trail in Cheshire.  As I prayed into the idea to prayer walk the Sandstone Trail I was encouraged when a prayer ministry team member at my church shared she had a picture of a sandstone as she prayed with me!  She knew nothing about what was on my heart.  I waited for someone else to want to prayer walk the Sandstone Trail with me and in August 2017 I completed this prayer assignment with a good friend. 

Shortly after this, I visited London.  Whilst there I did a prayer walk and came across a marker on a post for the London LOOP.  I had a strong prompting that God was asking me to do some prayer walking in London and said to God “you are not asking me to prayer walk London, are you?  It is a big place…!”  I went onto the internet and looked up what the London LOOP was and found the Transport for London website that gave more information about it.  As I looked at the map of the London LOOP on their website I saw the opportunity to prayer walk around the whole of London. 

As I prayed God led me to share the idea and over a period of months everything came together so that all 24 sections (in total 150 miles) were prayer walked over three Saturdays in June and July 2018.  It was a spying out the land exercise and the feedback from those that prayer walked was that we should do it again.  So in 2019 we invited individuals, prayer groups and churches from inside and outside of London to consider organising a prayer walk over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday in June.  Almost every section was covered in prayer to the glory of God.  In 2020 we are sending out the same invitation to prayer walk a section or sections of the London Loop.  The London Prayer Loop Walk will be on Friday 19th June, Saturday 20th June and Sunday 21st June.  

In 2018 and 2019 we had a suggested prayer focus of gun and knife crime.  Many more prayers were prayed as people prayed what was on their heart.  In 2019 we had additional prayer focus areas of praying for the well of salvation to be opened and for the glory of God.  We will continue to have a suggested prayer focus of gun and knife crime in 2020.  There will also be other suggested prayer focus areas that we will share with all those who are organising prayer walks closer to the time.
