Find your church address in the map and identify all the schools within a 15-25 block radius; prayer walk those schools. For example:
Invite testimonies. Announce which school within walking distance your church has adopted. Begin a pattern of praying for the school corporately. Commission students to wear their shirts on Monday, find other students in their school and pray during lunch.
Wear “I Am My School” T-shirts to school, find other students wearing the shirts during lunch, and pray as a group for their classmates, teachers, and school performance. Then catalyze student service projects like campus clean-up, teacher appreciation, or middle school tutoring.
