Lydia’s Place is hosting a prayer walk tonight from 5-8 p.m. at its new office and warehouse, 565 Jerry Smith Drive in Watkinsville.

The Christian nonprofit provides support for young adults between the ages of 14 and 26 who have experienced foster care or homelessness. That support comes in the form of housing, food, clothes, medical

needs and mental health needs. Earlier this year, Oconee residents Betty Jo Walton and Kim Keegan housed young adults struggling with homelessness. 

Participants of the prayer walk are asked to socially distance and wear a face mask. At the event, there will be multiple stations with scripture.

“You will find God opens your eyes and ears as He prepares your heart to see from His perspective the areas of need and opportunity,” said April Farlow, founder of Lydia’s Place. “We believe in the power of prayer and value the faithful support. Prayer allows us to tap into God’s power. Realizing this, we can know that concentrated prayer has the power to literally change the world around us.”

Extra Special People’s Java Joy coffee will be on site as well.
