Things to pray for

Community members often state they have trouble identifying specific things to pray for, especially if they have committed to a full hour of prayer. The following list is not complete, but it may help get you started. Just move down the list in your prayers, or start at any point and let the Spirit lead you from that point forward (Romans 8:26-27).

Regardless of how you go about it, just do it. Pilgrims and team members are counting on you. More importantly, Christ is counting on you!


  • Pray for each pilgrim by name, and ask God to help them forget the outside world for the weekend
  • That God will be with each pilgrim who may be resisting the Spirit’s call
  • That each pilgrim will enter into table discussions and freely give of themselves when it comes to responding to questions, etc.
  • For peace of mind for each pilgrim so that they will hear the messages shared by each speaker
  • For each pilgrim by name that, if they do not know the Lord Jesus as personal Savior, they will ask him into their heart
  • That each pilgrim will feel the love of Christ in a very special way that they have never felt before and that they will accept it, then take this love back home to be shared with others
  • That each letter of agape will warm the heart of each pilgrim
  • That the letters of agape received from other communities will show them how far and wide God’s love reaches
  • That the Holy Spirit will work in each pilgrim’s life at the Closing service and into all of their Fourth Days
  • For each pilgrim that, when they leave Monday evening, they will be able to re-enter the world without too much difficulty making up the work and/or other commitments missed
  • That each pilgrim will walk closely with Lord Jesus and keep his name on their lips, and his Spirit in their heart at all times

  • That God will grant good health and restful sleep to each pilgrim and team member throughout the weekend

  • For the Kitchen help, thanking them for their devotion to serving each pilgrim and team member, asking God to bless them, and to use the food to nourish each person in the manner God intends
  • For each Sponsor, who loved the pilgrim so much that they made this Walk possible for this person
  • That there will be no problems encountered in matters that compromise the safety or comfort of the participants and team members, such as fire, break-ins, theft, etc.
  • That Prayer partners will arrive safely and on time to pray with upcoming speakers
  • That the Lord will reap a harvest of souls due to the efforts of these new pilgrims as they establish their own ministries
  • That our Lord will be blessed by all that is done in His name throughout the weekend
