Evangelical Clark County Christians will follow in the footsteps of Abraham in a sense as they walk in prayer this week.
"We just wanted to bring people together and bring Christ's blessings to different areas," said organizer Dennis Fuqua. People who want to cover some ground while praying are invited to gather at a different church every day this week to pray and then start their journeys.
According to Fuqua, prayer-walking can be traced all the way back to the Old Testament story of Abraham. God told Abraham to "walk about the land for I will give it to you." As Abraham walked and saw the land, he was able to see it the way his ancestors could not -- with its promise fulfilled.
It's important, Fuqua said, not just to pray in church but to bring prayers out into the community.
"Praying at a scene, without making one," is how Fuqua summed up his hopes for the week. He's also hoping members of different congregations will visit one another's churches in a big weeklong mixer of sorts.
