Holy Week Prayer Walk: A Journey with Jesus

Experience a walk with Christ as He journeys from the triumphal entry to Jerusalem, to Bethany, to Gethsemane and finally to Golgotha in this Holy Week Prayer Walk. Traveling through 8 stations, one for each day of the week prior to Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection, the participant has an opportunity to:

  • read scripture from the gospel of Mark for each day of the week
  • reflect on the passage
  • reenact the narrative using smell, touch, or taste, and
  • respond in prayer.

The prayer walk is a perfect activity for families with children, couples and individuals.  The activities are designed to be family-friendly and will help children and youth come to understand these key narratives about Jesus on a deeper level.  Younger children will need an adult to walk with them on the path.

Here’s a sneak peak of the stations and activities:

Give us courage, O God, to hear your word and to read our living into it.

Give us the trust to know we’re forgiven, and give us the faith to take up our lives and walk.
