These suggestions for prayer will apply whether you are prayerwalking in your own neighborhood or cities around the world. The following prayer points are excerpts from Prayerwalking by Steve Hawthorne and Graham Kendrick (Creation House 1993)
1. Concerning Christ
Proclaim him to be the one Mediator and the ransom for all. Name him Lord of the neighborhood and of the lives you see.
2. Concerning leaders
Pray for people in positions of authority — for teachers, police, administrators and parents.
3. Concerning peace
Cry out for the godliness and holiness of God’s people to increase into substantial peace. Pray for new churches to be established.
4. Concerning truth
Declare openly the bedrock reality that there is one God.
Pray that minds would cease to be blinded by Satan so that they could come to a knowledge of the truth.
5. Concerning the gospel
Praise God for his heart’s desire that all people be saved.
Ask that heaven would designate this year as a “proper time” for the testimony of Christ to be given afresh with simple power (I Tim 2:6)
6. Concerning the blessing of God
Give God the thanks he deserves for the goodness he constantly bestows on the homes you pass by.
Ask to see the city with his eyes, that you might sense what is good and pleasing in his sight as well as what things grieve him deeply.
Ask God to bring forth an enduring spiritual awakening.
7. Concerning the Church
Ask for healing in relationships, that there be no wrath or dissension among God’s people.
Ask that God would make his people, men and women alike, expressive in worship with the substance of radiant, relational holiness.
