III. The 8 Prayer Points
During our Good Friday Virtual Prayer Walk we will be praying the following prayer points as a ministry. You can jot these prayer points down or copy & paste them in your phone to use as a springboard for the issues that you will be praying about during your walk.
Remember - prayer is simply talking to God, so don't be nervous to pray these prayer points. Simply speak from your heart and pray about these topic areas as you feel led. You can pray aloud or silently in your head. If you are walking with a group you can stop for each prayer point and lead the group in a brief prayer or group members can take turns leading the group in a prayer covering each prayer point. It's totally up to you. If you would like a little help to jumpstart your prayer life, you can pick up my book, Simple Prayers To Pray When You Don't Know What To Say

The Historical Reference
Walking the Stations of the Cross is a traditional and biblically-based practice that originated during the Crusades, at the beginning of the 13th century. The walk gives Christians a time and place to pause and reflect on Christ’s ultimate sacrifice before His victory over death.
There is debate among Bible theologians about how many stations of the cross there are. Bible scholars say between 7 and 14. However, there are 8 biblically referenced events depicted in the Stations of the Cross that are described in the Gospels. The eight biblically referenced Stations of the Cross are as follows: With these 8 biblically referenced stations of the cross in mind, during our Good Friday Prayer Walk we will be praying 8 Prayer Points to correlate with the following 8 stations of cross events in the life of Jesus.
1. Jesus is given the death sentence of crucifixion
2. Simon of Cyrene carries the cross for Jesus
3. The women wail and weep as they follow Jesus
4. Jesus’ clothes are removed
5. Jesus is nailed to the cross
6. Jesus dies on the cross
7. Jesus is taken off the cross
8. Jesus is buried in a tomb
