Ten years ago Young Life Africa started the freedom walk with a prayer walk up Mt. Kilimanjaro. This walk inspired the leaders to reach out to more kids. Now young life is in 21 countries throughout Africa with thousands of kids.
In Malawi, the walk will take place on July 12 2014. We will be walking in routes that we belive are relevant in the history of slavery in Malawi and some routes that slaves actually might have walked through. This walk couldn’t come at a better time for us as we celebrate 50 years of freedom this year, as we celebrate political freedom, we will also pray for emotional, spiritual, physical and psychological freedom for our country.
For the next 39 days we will be bringing you short devotions and prayer items for freedom walk, our hope is that you will be encouraged and also pray with us.
DAY ONE: THE NEED FOR FREEDOM
John 8:31-36 “
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
Pray for: Freedom to break chains and shackles that enslave young people all over the world Physically and Spiritually. PRAY, SHARE, WALK.
