How to Pray for Your Neighbors
Pray for Wisdom to Follow God’s Will
Pray that you help you to seek Him and His will in the midst of your neighborhood. Pray that you would be seeking His desires in your interactions and relationships with your neighbors.
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33
Pray for Love and Patience
Pray that God would fill your heart with sincere kindness and sacrificial love. Pray that God would cause you to be patient with others and with circumstances. Pray that God would help you to be peace-loving and persevering.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” Philippians 2:5
