Christian rapper Bryan “Young Saint” Carter will help lead a group of people who will participate in the God Belongs in My City—Louisville prayer walk, Sunday, Oct. 17.

Prayer walks will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the following churches: Urban Ministry Center, 2900 Slevin Street; Sanctuary Church, 636 Barret Ave.; ROCK CAFÉ ministries, 3264 Commerce Center Place; Liberty Tabernacle Church, 2100 St. Louis Ave.

“We want to make such an impact that every home, business and agency in our community is covered in prayer,” Carter said.

He added that the prayer walk was inspired by a similar event in Fayetteville, North Carolina, which drew nearly 6,000 participants.

The prayer walks will include a time of worship and prayer, as well as Christian rap and hip-hop performances, food and fellowship.

Participants will walk through neighborhoods adjacent to their church to pray for Louisville’s youth, families, government officials, law enforcement agencies, schools, businesses, homeless, nonprofit organizations and charities. There will be prayer stations at the churches for people who want to participate but are unable to walk.

Churches, volunteers and sponsors interested in joining the God Belongs in My City—Louisville movement can contact Paul Burch, community organizer, at (502) 767-0200.
