Pray for your local community

2 Min Read

Seek God’s kingdom for where you live.

Top tips for engaging with the needs of your local community with regular and committed prayer:

Get started: Get to know your community

Go for a walk

Notice what’s around you: places of work, schools, health services, empty buildings, areas which need care and attention. Invite the Holy Spirit to highlight to you what you can invest in.

Talk to people

Ask local shop owners how they’re doing, or chat with parents at the school gate. Be intentional about knowing the people you live alongside.

Sit on a bench

…In a local park, or on a local street. Look at what’s around you and the things that you notice.
