Outdoor Prayer Path
About the Prayer Path
Everybody needs music for the road, don’t they?
God’s people long ago needed songs to pass the long hours of traveling the steep roads to Jerusalem.
And we need songs too.
Songs to help us press on when we’re tired;
to inspire us when we’re discouraged;
to keep us trusting God who is with us every step of the way on the journey.
Walking a path marked by crosses has been a prayer practice for Christians for centuries. There is comfort and power for here and now when prayer includes our bodies.
The stations of the cross here at Fleetwood Christian Reformed Church are unique to the seasons of the Church year. During this Lenten season, the prayer path has been updated to reflect on the Psalms of Ascent as "Songs for the Journey". This prayer path provides a space for you to come and simply pray. The stations are outdoor surrounding our church building and available 24/7.
Stop by the church, pick up a walking stick and begin your walk.
There’s a bench at each station where you can stop to reflect.
Take as much time as you need.
