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.

You pick the time you want to pray. In the future we are likely to have a time slot calendar so you can register the time you will pray.
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.
