This weekend, ie: tomorrow, I will be taking part in a prayer walk. It's basically a 24 hour walk, covering 30 miles and stopping in lots of local churches/towns/villages to pray for the area, the schools, churches, people etc. Whilst 30 miles may not seem far, we are starting at 6 in the evening and not finishing until 6pm the folllowing day. I am a seasoned walker, but I think this willl be tough, so can I ask you, if you remember or if you have a moment, to pray for those of us doing the walk, specifically for strength and encouragement from God. Thanks :)If you'd like to know more, see the link below:

This is one of those things that I just knew I had to be involved in the very second I heard about it and being part of the organising team has been a pleasure and such an excitement. I hope and pray that God will really move during this walk, that we can have a positive impact on the area and specifically the places we are visiting and that it gives a really posititve image to the community that the church is looking outwards and wants the best for the community. One of the lines I put on our press was:
'Walking the Land is all about praying for Mid Sussex. Praying for our churches, our schools, our villages and towns, the people who live here. Whatever you believe, we all want the best for the place where we live. For our children, for our families, for our lives.'
Because actually it is about all of us, not just the Christians! If one person is feeling good, they will pass that on to those around them. Those who feel rubbish, generally bring down the mood of others. So even if no one around us believes in God (although I hope they will :) ) we can still try and make a difference to their lives, and a good one at that...
