A Way (Besides Politics) To Change Your Neighborhood, City, & Country

God told Joshua:  “I will give you every place where you set your foot.”  We can change our neighborhoods, our cities, and even our country (without using politics).  But how?  One way is to prayer walk with The Salvation Army Flag (or other Christian flag).

All you need to do is to carry the flag, pray, walk around your neighborhood, smile, and be friendly to people.  The results will amaze you.  Strangers will wave at you, stop and ask you questions, and even let you pray with them — and they will be so encouraged that they may even hug you.  It’s easy.  All it takes is one step after another.

(The colors on The Salvation Army Flag represent three things.  You will need to know this when people ask you questions about it:  1) Red stands for the blood of Jesus; 2 Yellow represents the fire of the Holy Spirit; and 3) Blue is to remind us that God calls all Christ-followers to live a biblical moral and holy life.)

We’ve started a Facebook page for people who want to give it a go.  Visit it at: http://www.facebook.com/PrayerWalkingWithTheSalvationArmyFlag?ref=hl  And while there, please “like” it.

This is a support page for people who want to use The Salvation Army Flag as a took in sharing the gospel. People are invited to share their experiences prayer walking with the flag. Please post any pictures of people on the streets with the flag. Also if you have any ideas, words of encouragement, quotes, stories, or historical examples of the flag on the streets, please share them on the Facebook page.

Our vision is that 100s of Salvation Army Corps and commands around the world will begin to carry their official flag on the streets in their neighborhoods for at least 1 hour per week and pray and share God’s love as they go.

Here’s a quote from Mildred Duff about co-founder of The Salvation Army, Catherine Booth’s love for the flag:   “She loved The Salvation Army Flag, and was true to its beautiful meaning. She loved to present the colors to the newly opened corps, or to parties of officers going abroad; and shortly before she passed away she begged that the dear Army Flag might be brought in and hung above her bed.”


About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
