PrayerWalk 2013: The Jesus Way

August 19, 2013

On Thursday, August 29, 2013, the MNU Associated Student Government invites the campus and community to gather together for PrayerWalk 2013, an evening of focused prayer. Faculty, staff and students along with trustees, alumni, friends and area churches are encouraged to join the campus community to walk the boundaries of the campus to pray for God’s guidance, protection and blessings for all aspects of the university. The theme for this school year is “The Jesus Way.” The walk will allow us to pray as we walk the same paths that so many others have walked through the years.

The PrayerWalk begins at the Harvest Prayer Sculpture on the campus green at 7:30 p.m. and  proceeds through campus concluding at College Church of the Nazarene for a closing time of community prayer. Those unable to participate in the walk itself are invited to gather in the College Church sanctuary at 7:30 p.m. to pray and to participate in closing prayers.

Prayer walking was common to the early church as a way for Christians to gather and reaffirm their commitment to God’s purposes and to focus on all segments of their community. Often congregations would circle their towns and ask God to be present in the city and in the lives of the people. This practice was suggested in Genesis 14:17 where the Lord said to Abraham, “Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.” Then Abraham departed, walked the land and built an altar to the Lord.

MNU President Dr. David Spittal says “MidAmerica Nazarene University is committed to academic excellence and high standards of teaching and learning, but our mission and purposes are fulfilled only as we gather to pray and together to experience the love, hope and joy found only through Jesus Christ.”
