Virtual Prayer Walks Using Google Earth, Maps

When I was doing mission work in Sarajevo, Bosnia I remember having weekly prayer walks around the city and particular areas of significance.

It was powerful and a rich experience and lesson in trusting God for His provision, favor and Will for the city and for our work there.

But I haven’t been in Bosnia in years… but with technology I could potentially take “virtual” prayer walks via Google Maps and Google Earth!

The North American Mission Board has specifically created virtual prayer walks for Haiti.

You can use Google Maps and/or Earth to follow the path and pray through them with even suggested thoughts for prayer:

I think this is a really neat way to do it, especially if you have a heart for a particular group or region or city but are unable to be there physically.
