00653 - Praying For Your Street

Before lifting your street in prayer, it's beneficial to understand its specific needs and history. Engage with your community, understand your neighbours, and observe the area's challenges and strengths. This informed approach to prayer allows you to pray with precision and empathy, addressing the unique circumstances of your environment. As James 5:16 (NASB) says, "The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much."

Firstly, pray for safety and peace within your street. Ask for God's protection over each household and harmony among neighbours so your street feels safe. Secondly, pray for health and provision for your neighbours, especially those struggling or facing hardship. Lastly, pray for a sense of community and belonging.

Let your informed intercession be the light that guides your street towards a future of unity, support, and spiritual protection. Remember, your prayers, grounded in knowledge and compassion, can transform individual lives and the entire community.


Let research inform your intercession, and your street will improve.


Father, guide me as I pray for the homes and businesses on my street. Amen.

Action Point

Don’t hesitate to send Easter or Christmas cards with a note to say you are happy to pray for anyone.
