Prayer Walking

Guide to Prayer Walking

Prayer walking is one of the most effective and valuable tools we have found for committing your NBS to God’s supernatural power and purposes, trusting in His promise in Joshua 1:3, “I will give you every place where you set your foot.” Lift your neighbors to Christ through prayer walking as you walk and/or drive through the streets of your neighborhood.

  1. Make a plan to begin prayer walking on a regular basis.
  2. Pray for people by name when possible, asking God to give you opportunities to serve, give, and build relationships with them. Prayerfully follow through.
  3. Pray for God’s blessings and protection on each home and family.
  4. Pray that God would open hearts and create a hunger to know Him.
  5. Pray for homes that are for sale:

a. Remove and keep out all evil
b. Move in those hungry to know Christ
c. Move in and raise up vibrant believers to join your study

Using the Lord’s Prayer as your guide, walk the streets of your neighborhood and pray quietly. If there are other Christians in your neighborhood, walk and pray together. This is a powerful, yet simple, tool.


The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name

  • Praise God as you begin.
  • Use the alphabet as your guide: God you are almighty, abundant. God you are benevolent, big, beside me….


Thy Kingdom come

  • Acknowledge the lordship of Christ over your neighborhood.
  • Visualize a spotlight shining into each house you pass. Let it represent a picture of God’s love drawing your neighbors to Him.
  • Pray for salvation and spiritual awakening!


Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven

  • Pray God’s will to be accomplished in the neighborhood.


Give us this day our daily bread

  • Pray for the provision of basic needs for each family.
  • Visualize a sprinkler of blessings covering each home.


Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us

  • Pray for reconciliation with God and others.
  • Pray that walls are broken down – marriages, families, racial differences.


Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil

  • Pray that God would cast out and keep out all evil from your neighborhood.
  • Pray that all the believers would be “salt and light” to those around them.


For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever!
