Prayer Tours in Every
A Prayer Tour can be done just by driving any vehicle through a city
for an hour or so when traffic is light, such as Sunday morning before
church, with a team of at least three to four praying believers on-board
who will pray over that city, using the main government buildings
and other symbols as reminders to pray for that city, our nation and
Like Washington, D.C. every city has visual symbols of the government-Local,
State and Federal. For example, City Hall, the County or Federal
Buildings, Courthouses, Army Reserve or National Guard Posts, Police
Departments, Prisons, Jails,
School Boards, Newspaper Offices, TV or Radio Stations, Abortion
Clinics, Pornography Shops, Chamber of Commerce Offices, Banks and
IT'S HARD TO FORGET TO PRAY for your city and leaders if you'll
go look at their offices on a weekly basis! It's easier to remember
to pray for our military forces around the world when driving past
an Army Reserve or National Guard base!
The same is true for schools, media and all the other issues mentioned
The prayer tour in a vehicle driving through any city provides
a COMFORTABLE, CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT and a SYSTEMATIC LIST OF PASSING
REMINDERS. An organized rotation keeps weekly prayer going, once
you find a schedule that people are willing to sustain, and a system
Our weekly prayer alerts and Prayer Handbook (click above on "Our Prayer Resources") are especially useful as one is led by the Holy
Spirit in praying God's Word over the economy, for the Military,
for the Media, for our Leaders, etc., including "Psalm 91 for
PRAISE AND WORSHIP, especially regarding THE BLOOD OF JESUS, is
also a big part of our Prayer Tours, as led by the Holy Spirit!
In our local Washington, D.C. area church described above, volunteers
are rotated weekly so that no one is asked to go more than once
every month; however, some space is usually available for those
who want to go more often, with a reservation required to guarantee
The prayer tour participant rotation schedule can be mailed out
or published in a weekly church bulletin, and as necessary, participants
can receive a phone call a day before as a reminder.
Although child care is provided for our main church service each
Sunday, no childcare is provided for our prayer tours. However,
school age children enjoy this unique and exciting prayer experience,
and children of all ages are welcome to come on the prayer tours
with their parents!
With this kind of organization and effort, Victory World Outreach
Church in the Washington, D.C. area has been able to sustain a 95%
participation rate in this prayer tour program for almost two decades,
keeping Washington, D.C. saturated in
prayer! All Glory to God!!!
Weekly Sunday morning prayer tours could be conducted as a Sunday
School option by churches in every city in the world, as a tool
to help the body of Christ be diligent in prayer, so that God can
keep America and all the nations saturated in prayer in this critical
endtime hour, especially now with the current war on terrorism!
This is how the government can be upon Jesus' shoulders (Isaiah
9:6)--His people in His body the church (Ep.1:22-23) allow Him to
pray through them, as His Holy Spirit brings His Word to our remembrance
(Jo.14:26) as a sword of the Spirit taken praying always (Ep.6:17-18),
so that the Lord can lift up His standard of truth in our streets,
homes, schools, businesses and halls of government (Is.59:14-21).
His Truth is Marching On! Jesus is Lord! The Kingdoms of this world
have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall
reign for ever and ever! (Rev. 11:15) Come quickly Lord Jesus! (Rev.
