Dear praying friends,
You may have seen the Prayerwalking Guide for Sept 11 that I posted recently. You can read below for more information about it. Now, a Spanish translation is available, too. You can download both of them here:
If you have trouble downloading either prayer guide above, you can easily download them from the WayMakers home page, www.waymakers.org, and print as many copies as you need for others.

I want you to know about a resource we’ve just produced. It’s a prayerwalking guide designed to be used on September 11. It’s easy and free to download and print. Make all the copies you’d like to invite others to join you. Go to http://www.waymakers.org to download the pdf file.
September 11 falls on a Saturday this year, which is usually the easiest day to bring together a few friends to prayerwalk a portion of your community. Someone had the cool idea of prayerwalking between 9:00 am and 11:00 am on 9-11.
Thousands of people will be doing this, including some in every state of the union. Please think about organizing a prayerwalk near your workplace or around your neighborhood on the morning of September 11.
I wrote this prayer guide with the encouragement of our friends who are organizing the Cry Out America! initiative. Go to http://www.awakeningamerica.us to find out what Cry Out America! is all about. Many will be organizing gatherings at government centers and courthouses at noon on that day. The last prayer on this prayer guide is designed to be read in unison at those gatherings.
Recent events have made this September 11 to be an even more important time for Christians to pray in hope for God’s life and love to be revealed in our land. We need to pray in ways that go beyond our partisan opinions. We can easily cheapen our public praying as political posturing unless wedeepen our praying by grounding our hope in God’s Word.
Yours in hope,
