AFROWALK Comes to Denmark, April 20-24

A Christian brother from South Africa recently contacted Pray for Denmark to express appreciation for the website: "I am so glad I found your website. It just gives me a bit of a better insight of Denmark . . . I just wanted to say thanks for putting information up on the web and tell you how it inspires me." Peet also told us of how the Lord has led him to make a prayer walk at the very northern tip of Jutland (Jylland). He calls the tip the "Spearhead" as the land area in northern Jutland comes to a sharp point. Peet has experienced a number of prayer walks in South Africa and has named this spiritual activity AFROWALK. Now the Lord is leading him to extend his prayer walking to Denmark. He will be making a business trip from South Africa to Scandinavia toward the end of April and is planning to take an additional five days to do a 90 kilometer AFROWALK around the shoreline of the Jutland "Spearhead" beginning on the west side at Hirtshals on Wednesday, April 20 and concluding on the east side at Frederikshavn on Sunday, April 24. In between are 16 other towns or villages. Learn more about Peet's prayer walk in Denmark at the following web address: and let's support his prayer ministry with our own prayers. Peet asks, "Why do this?" and in answer describes his prayer walking in this fashion: "I know that once I smelled the air, tasted the water, felt the wind and seen the people, I will have so much more compassion and be able to pray with all my heart. Walking in an area helps to see the way God sees it and better understand the things to be prayed for. I will also be there in person to deliver God's messages of hope and inspiration to people that are in need of it right there and at that specific moment in time . . . I have an excitement in my heart for Denmark. I believe the Lord wants to bless this country. If these words stir your heart in any way, please pray for Denmark too."

PRAY that the Lord will go before to guide and direct in even the minutest details of Peet's preparations for arrival at Hirtshals on April 20, including travel, weather, financial needs, spiritual readiness and, of course, our prayer support.

PRAY that there will be those receptive persons Peet may encounter along the way between Hirtshals and Frederikshavn who have spiritual needs the Holy Spirit can minister to through him.

PRAY that Peet's person and witness for Christ will be attractive to Danes so that they will not shun him thinking of him as a cultist.

PRAY that Peet's AFROWALK around the Jutland "Spearhead" will prove to be a dynamic spiritual spearhead for evangelism, revival/renewal, and church planting throughout the whole of Denmark in the months and years ahead.

PRAY that Peet's prayer walking ministry will attract Danes to know the Risen Christ in all His fulness, to walk upright in the Spirit and be guided by the Spirit, and to follow a lifestyle of walking in the footsteps of Jesus.
