Uniting Churches to Prayerwalk Every Neighborhood in St. Louis with Kurt Wilson

Presence Pioneers Podcast Episode 132

Kurt Wilson, founder of Pray for the Lou (short for St. Louis), shares amazing testimonies and stories of unity and prayer in St. Louis. The ministry's goal is to ignite prayer in the Church of St. Louis and bring unity to the city. They organize an annual event called Pray for the Lou Day, where churches prayer walk their neighborhoods simultaneously and come together for worship and prayer.

This year, they took it a step further and held 50 hours of non-stop worship, prayer, and reading of the Word in a downtown office building. The event saw participation from worship teams and prayer leaders from dozens of ministries.

Prayer walking is a key strategy for their ministry, where they pray “on-site with insight”, for specific needs in neighborhoods. Kurt's passion for unity and prayer was birthed during his missionary experience in China, where he realized the importance of working together as the body of Christ to reach a city or people group.

The Presence Pioneers Podcast exists to help you experience and host God’s presence through worship and prayer - because God’s presence changes everything!
