Protocol for Prayer Walking the Capital
Our assignment: Pray at the Capitol, inside and outside the building and for all the people who work here.
Our focus: To intercede in prayer for legislators, staff and families, that the Divine Will of God be achieved.
Please be respectful, polite and aware that there are many activities going on in the Capitol. We do not want to be a distraction in any way. Therefore we ask that you respectfully honor the following:
· Please prayer walk in common areas of the building and grounds only. Do not enter into individual offices or approach individual people while you are praying. We do recommend that you go to your Representative and Senator's office and thank them for their public service and let them know you are praying for them personally, for their staff, and their families.
· As you pray remain humble, sensitive and courteous. When praying or worshiping, do so quietly.
· Prayer walk in groups of two or more. It is not recommended to exceed groups of 10-12.
· It is easy to get distracted and opinionated when praying for the government and public officials. Stay focused on the assignment. Do not engage in political conversations or express your personal opinion on the issues. We are here on this day to pray only. Please deal with issues another time.
· We are servants of the Lord and are here to serve our public servants and bless them as we journey on our prayer walk. We have been invited to come by them and we are their guests. We want to be a sweet smelling savor to God and our legislators.
· Do not be emotional, pray loudly, or manifest in any physical manner that would draw attention to your group or yourselves. Please pray for the attached Budget Breakdown and Prayer Principles.
Where to Prayer Walk – Who to Pray For
Throughout the Capitol are legislative offices for elected officials, staff and support personnel.
Each of these people serve Missouri. They are interconnected by staff. They all have families.
Wherever you pray remember to include all support staff and families.
