2012 Prayer Walk, Comerica Park To Spirit Of Detroit

Saturday, April 28, 2012
Program begins at 9:00 a.m. rain or shine!

Last year over 20,000 people came as one body to worship, pray and walk. This year, we will once again join together and seek God to help us continue to share His Good News and good deeds throughout the 40-day campaign.

We encourage you to carpool. Buses are welcome. Remember to wear your 2WordStory gear!!!

  • Handicap parking is suggested in the Tigers Parking Deck on Montcalm along the north side of Comerica Park. (this is the closest parking available)
  • Buses and vans are asked to park on the south side I-75 service drive between Woodward Avenue and Brush just north of Comerica Park.
  • Volunteer parking will be accommodated in the Fox Parking Garage from midnight to 7am for FREE.
  • All bikes can be parked in the “Media Compound Lot”, on Montcalm, across from the media entrance to Comerica Park. This is a fenced lot and we will provide a walk marshall or two for security.

The Characteristics of a Healthy Intercessor

An intercessor:

  • Enjoys praying – it is not merely a chore. Intercession is not seen as only painful and mournful, warfare and demonic attacks, a dark world in which the intercessor lives.
  • The healthy intercessor has learned discipline, a part of which demands that the heart of prayer, the first movement in prayer, not be to the station of intercessor, but to the sweetness of the relationship with the one we represent on the wall.
  • They are humble— there is no place for pride or conceit … the intercessor:
  • Is a servant to the pastor
  • Has a submissive, meek spirit – but they are not a broken reed.
  • Respects authority, even if they disagree from time to time. They still honor office, and know boundaries.
  • WantsGod to get the glory and is protective of what belongs to God (watchful, guarding).
  • Shares insights, concerns, and then is able to “let it go.” They understand, they are watchers on the wall, not elders at the gate.
  • Is “other minded” – empathy is a major component of their DNA, along with compassion, and sensitivity.
  • Surrenders to the will of God.
  • Is motivated by love and is full of grace (forgiving), and supportive.
  • Is teachable.
  • Wants unity.
  • Is encouraging to others – has the ability to share truth in a loving way. God is to edify.
  • Is discerning. Hears the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The Seven Commitments of a Praying Church

“1.Led by a praying pastor, and aided by a prayer leadership team, we commit to bring prayer to the heart of all we do! “Without Christ, we can do nothing!” Therefore, our resources, spiritual and material; our plans and programs, we will bathe in prayer.

2.We will encourage at-home, daily, to-be-like-Jesus praying. We will reestablish our personal and family altars. We will embrace the discipline of daily times with God, with one another as couples, and as families. We will champion the idea of ‘prayer rooms/closets’.

3.We will call our congregation to regular ‘Great Days of Prayer!’ with the goal of establishing a regular prayer meeting for the entire church at least monthly, if not, weekly. We will make the prayer meeting as important as Sunday Morning singing and preaching.

4.We will honor those who carry a special calling to pray – intercessors. We will identify intercessors, encourage them, train them, team them, deploy them and debrief them…” Read more
