Pray for Your Neighbor

One of the greatest ways we can not only develop a greater love for our neighbors but also display that love is to simply pray for them.

  • As you develop a closer relationship with them, ask for them to share with you ways in which you can pray for them
  • Add your neighbor(s) to your prayer list and make it a point to pray for them each week.
  • Pray for God to work in the heart of your neighbor to understand the truth of the Gospel (2 Corinthians 4:6)
