Approximately 25 people took to the streets in Burns Flat, Oklahoma this morning.
To proclaim the good news of life in Jesus Christ.
To pray for our nation, state, community, servicemen and women, firefighters, emergency service workers, those in law enforcement, schools, teachers, administrators, and students and so many more things.
Small groups stopped at corners or in the middle of the block or inside a home to pray. Prayers were offered for people that remained in their vehicle or came out to the curb. Many, many prayers were lifted up in this small community.
This was the 5th Walk A Block for Jesus sponsored by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Burns Flat, Oklahoma and this year’s emphasis was on prayer.
That didn’t mean that gospels were not handed out. They were.
That didn’t mean the walkers didn’t greet everyone they saw with, “God loves you.” They did.
That didn’t mean that hundreds of GOD LOVES YOU – LOVE ONE ANOTHER rubber wristbands were not given to adults and children alike. They surely were.
But prayer—the prayers of people made right with God by the blood of Jesus—were offered up all morning. Powerful and effective prayers were lifted up to God.
There is a follow on phase to the Walk A Block for Jesus. For the week of school to come, students are asked to take a Life Book—a gospel of John written for youth—to their friends at school.
A very few people made a huge impact on this small community today. Students, a very few students, have been asked to make a bigger impact upon their schools this week.
This was the Walk A Block for Jesus 2014 Edition.
