Attention churches: The Mesa Prayer Walk is seeking churches willing to "encircle the city in prayer" at 3 p.m. Jan. 8, 2012. According to a news release, the goal is for groups as small as one or as large as 100 to walk one perimeter mile of the city, "praying for spiritual protection, political wisdom, and economic prosperity in the year ahead."
Mesa Prayer Walk founder Brant D. Baker, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, said it's a great way to start the year.
"And alongside all the good being done through church food pantries, homeless shelters, and literacy programs, undergirding our city in prayer is one of the most important things people of faith can be about," Baker said in the release.
