Some more ideas 

 

And not strictly for Lent - 

Arise Sheffield - Prayer in Action 2021  Arise, prayer-walk, and bring hope to your community. This March, followers of Jesus from across Sheffield will be using their daily walk to pray for the houses and streets they pass. The vision: to prayer-walk every street in Sheffield by Easter. Using the Arise app, believers can track their prayer walks, and street by street see an interactive prayer map light up. Each prayer will add to the bigger picture of love for this City and its people. For those unable to get out and shielding there will be opportunities for virtual prayer with others in the community.
