Faith-based movement ‘GirlTrek’ rallies women nationwide to walk and pray for social change

Share Walk and pray: that’s the formula for social change according to T. Morgan Dixon, co-founder of GirlTrek, a national public health nonprofit and movement for black women and girls.

Annually, it hosts a walking competition for black churches across the country. And this year, the nine-day prayer trek takes place October 1st-9th and is open to all denominations.

“The black church has always been a pillar of social justice on the front lines of social change. GirlTrek is asking the sisters from every church to take to the streets to walk and pray for social change,” said Dixon.

Photo Credit: GirlTrekThe way it works is that churches register to participate at PrayerTrek.org and for nine days straight, they walk together.

Daily, a prayer assignment is given based on the nine fruit of the spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

“Let's put feet to our prayers,” continued Dixon. “Walk wherever you are and pray for our communities. As we walk, we will practice our values according to the book of Galatians. We will cultivate the nine fruit of the spirit.”

The church with the most registered walkers participating at the end of the challenge wins the national trophy. If you do not currently have a church home, you are not excluded. Non-affiliated walkers may also participate by registering online.

Last year, GirlTrek reports that 250 new churches competed. The 2017 goal is to rally 500 Black churches around the country.
