How Can We Pray for Others on Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I go ALL OUT with decorating my yard in anticipation of all the kids who will come knocking on my door for candy and treats.

Even if your family doesn’t partake in the Halloween fun and festivities, you can still pray for those who do!

  • We can pray for the safety of our children as they set trick-or-treating.
  • We can pray for souls to be saved! Trick or treating provides the perfect opportunity to share the Good News with others.
  • We can pray for communities to continue gathering long after the holiday is over.
  • We can pray against the enemy to stop him in his tracks before he can even get started!

Prayers for Halloween

Prayer is a powerful tool that we have against the enemy. This is our direct line of communication with God and we should use it on Halloween just as we do every other day of the year!

There are so many things we can pray about on Halloween! Here are 4 powerful prayers to pray on Halloween.

Halloween Prayers

Halloween Prayers for Safety

On Halloween, children come out in droves and take over neighborhoods in search of candy and other treats. And with candy on the mind, they surely aren’t paying attention to anything around them – other than the next house they will get to!

The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8 NIV

As with any other activity that children engage in, we want them to be safe. The very nature of the festivities on Halloween provides all kinds of dangers.

Pray for our children tonight and every night!

Use this Halloween prayer to ask God to cover every child with His arms of protection tonight!

Father, thank you for the joy that kids have on this one night of the year! Please wrap your arms of protection around them and keep them safe tonight and every night. Keep them safe from traffic dangers. Keep them safe from would-be wrongdoers. And, most importantly, keep them safe from the dark and evil forces that are known to be active on this night of the year. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Halloween Prayers

Halloween Prayers Evangelism

Love God, love others and share the gospel. That is our calling as Christians and as followers of Christ!

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15 NIV

Halloween provides the biggest opportunity for us to do just that! I mean, seriously! Entire neighborhoods literally come to our doorsteps! We don’t even have to leave our homes to share the gospel of Jesus with others. We simply need to open the door to those trick-or-treaters!

There are so many ways to enjoy Halloween as a Christian!

Sharing the gospel on Halloween is a simple as opening our door and loving on our neighbors. Offer them Christian-themed treats, put Christian Halloween crafts in their treat bags, and wish them well by saying God Bless You!

Use this Halloween prayer to ask God for a revival to happen as Christians share your Word with their neighbors tonight!

Dear Jesus, thank you for giving us this amazing opportunity to share the Good News of eternal life with you! I pray that every Christian use this night to its fullest potential in teaching others about the treat that comes from knowing You. I pray for creative ideas in sharing the gospel with our neighbors so that at least one person comes to know you tonight. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Halloween Prayers

Halloween Prayers for Community

Community is such an important part of the Christian lifestyle. God calls us to gather together to share each others’ joys and burdens.

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18:20 NIV

Unfortunately, we seem to get further and further from that with each passing year. We often don’t even know our next-door neighbor’s name!

But on Halloween, the entire neighborhood comes alive and we get the opportunity to meet everyone and enjoy the fun together.

Use this prayer to thank God for the community that will happen in neighborhoods all across the country tonight!

Father, thank you for giving us this amazing chance to be in the community with our neighbors tonight. We have failed miserably in this as a regular practice. I pray that tonight, we set out to be intentional with getting to know our neighbors beyond just a passing wave. I pray that tonight, neighbors begin to become friends. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Halloween Prayers

Halloween Prayers Against the Enemy

Ok, the truth is that this particular holiday is known to be one in which the enemy runs rampant. So many Christians avoid the day altogether for this reason.

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:8 NIV

But we also know that God is more powerful than any evil force out there! So, instead of avoiding everything about this day, we can simply pray against the enemy (kind of like we do in other areas of our life).

Use this Halloween prayer to shut the enemy down in his tracks tonight!

Father, we know that the enemy uses this particular holiday to his advantage. But we also know that anything the enemy uses for evil, you will use for good. I pray that you simply put the enemy in his place tonight (and all nights)! I pray that each person out enjoying the fun and festivities is protected from the enemy’s tactics and that you shut the enemy down at every turn. This night will be for Your glory in every way! In Jesus Name, Amen!

I encourage you to use the Halloween prayers to pray over your kids and your neighborhood tonight! Use them to strengthen God’s armor around every single person to keep them safe from the enemy.

This one night of the year is such an important one for the Kingdom of God because of the potential to save new souls. Use it for God’s glory and share the Gospel with every single person that comes to your door tonight!
