Prayer Labyrinth Alpharetta Presbyterian Chruch
180 Academy St.
Type of Prayer Place
This prayer labyrinth is located at the back of the church in a wooded area. The labyrinth was created using brick pavers to define the walkway with crushed gravel as the path itself. There are other areas that invite meditation including benches that overlook the woods.
How I used this place of prayer
One day I arrived at a doctor’s appointment at the wrong hour so instead of going home and coming back, I decided to visit the prayer labyrinth since it was nearby. It was a gorgeous fall day and the colorful leaves and the brilliant sunlight helped me enter into a whole new world that was so different than a doctor’s office. No one else was around the area (it’s at the back of the church property) so I enjoyed a time of peaceful meditation that revived and refreshed me. It was so refreshing that I hope to make it a habit more often to stop at a place of prayer during busy days.

There’s a one way driveway that goes all the way around the back of the church. The labyrinth is located at the far end of the back parking lot. They also have a small box with information on ideas on how to pray using the labyrinth.
