*** Outdoor Prayer in Motion – A Prayer Walk ***
Sometimes, exploring the world God created while relating to God in prayer can help us see through fresh eyes the goodness of all that He made. Whether you’d like to go for a serene prayer walk or share prayer time outdoors with your family, you can visit the six prayer stations around St. Mark Presbyterian Church.
Visit each of the following stations, where a prayer sign will be located with the words of the prayer and an accompanying reflection or song:
• The Cross – Lord’s prayer
• The Mark entrance of the church – for the church
• The Luke entrance of the church – for the world
• The Children’s Garden – for food
• The Playground – for families
• The Matthew entrance of the church – that Jesus will go before us and make the path straight

Although Children’s Ministry has helped plan it and there is a component for families, the prayer stations are for all ages.
Several of the signs use a QR code to get you to the accompanying resource website. To get to the link from the QR code, here are a few instructions:
