As you prayerwalk, your prayers extend beyond your own concerns, focusing directly on the needs of others and opening yourself to see them with God’s eyes and heart.
If you are in a Neighborhood...
Pray for the families that live in the
house you pass.
Pray that they know Jesus or will come to know him soon.
Pray that the Lord would keep the enemy from prevailing in these homes and that these families will overcome the situations they are in.
If you see for sale signs, pray that the Lord will bring someone to this neighborhood who will be a light for the people on this street.
If you pass a local school…
Pray for the students.
Pray for the teachers, administration, and other employees.
Pray that the Lord will rise up leaders for our city who honor Him.
If you pass places of business…
Pray for the employers and employees that they know Jesus and will walk in his ways.
If you pass city entities...
Pray for our city officials as they lead and make decision that affect us on the local level.
Pray for our first responders.
If you pass other Churches...
Pray for their leadership.
Pray that they remain faithful to the Word of God.
Pray that this local body of believers will grow in discipleship and make disciples.
Pray with Purpose.
- Pray for the present-hour needs of people and places that you see.
- Pray quietly or aloud.
- If asked, explain: “We’re praying God’s blessing on the neighborhood. And ask if there specific ways we can pray for you or others?"
- Be persistent. You’ll often find that your prayers deepen and your concern and awareness of God’s heart for people increases.
