Thrive Pathway Activity 15

Pray for Non Believers


One of the privileges you have as a child of God is that you have access to Him in prayer. God does hear the prayers of everyone but not in the same way as His own children. So as a child of God, you are in a unique position to pray for your friends and family that are not believers. You know the power and importance of prayer, and you know the value and necessity of prayer. For those reasons, pray often for those you know are not believers.

Praying for one another is called intercession, and the Bible admonishes you to intercede for others. Pray specifically for needs you may be aware of in their lives, but most of all pray that they will come to receive God’s gift of eternal life for themselves.


I Timothy 2:1  
“First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men.”


  • Create a prayer journal. It can be as simple as a small notebook.
  • Write down the names of people you know who are not believers.
  • Pray daily for them by name and ask God to reveal Himself to them.
  • Pray for other needs you know they have as you pray for people on your list.
  • Tell them you are praying for them and ask if there are needs they want you to pray about.
  • Make notes and record answered prayers with the date so you can see how God is working.
