Tarkington Park Indianapolis Prayer Walk

This is the view from our office – Tarkington Park. While the $5 million park makeover is going on, the local residents were enjoying the beautiful weather that day. There are 30,000 people living within 3-mile radius of the park.

On a recent Friday starting at 1:30p, a few of FHL volunteers prayed and walked 7 times around the park. All were welcome to join us. Our meeting took place at the FHL office.  A short briefing was held at 1:30p then we walked around the park 7 times while praying specifically for neighborhood transformation.

Two hours and ten minutes. That’s how long it took us to do the prayer walk that afternoon.
