The world is moving fast in the direction of coming to an end as we know it, but we still have to stand in the gap and intercede for those wh9o are hurting. As the eyes of the world are focused on Ukraine and the attack from Russia we must take time to intercede and pray for the people over there. Sometimes we can sit down and pray what comes to mind while other times we search for the right things to pray about. Over the next few posts, I will be doing that as these prayer messages are very important for us as believers in Jesus Christ.

I searched online for different prayer needs for Ukraine and I was thankful to find quite a few. So here they are:

Ways to join in Prayer for Ukraine

The following list is from the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE.org) which posted: We are grateful to Amy Richey, director of global equipping for ReachGlobal, a ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of America, for these specific prayer points that can help guide our prayers:

Ask to see God’s glory amid great struggle. God often uses very serious situations to draw people to himself. Pray that he would be glorified through the people of Ukraine who are following him.

Pray for God’s peace to be a source of strength. Pray for the workers there — both expat and Ukrainians to be comforted by God’s shalom peace. Pray that they would have opportunities to share with others because they do not trust in governments, but in God.

Pray for God’s protection. Pray for the safety of people on both sides of this border. Ask God for their physical protection but also their spiritual protection — ask him to help people seek the truth during the conflict.

Ask God for comfort. As the war continues from the 2014 Russian invasion of the Crimea region, the thought of more intense war seems overwhelming to the many families who have already lost fathers and sons.

Ask God to intervene. Pray for wisdom as world leaders maneuver, strategize and speak out. Pray that God would move in their hearts and guide their steps and plans.

Pray that Ukraine and Russia would be places without corruption. Pray for leaders of both countries to know God’s truth and peace and be transformed by his Holy Spirit, that they would seek to lead their countries in the way of peace.

Ask for repentance, grace, forgiveness, and reconciliation throughout Ukraine and Russia. Pray not only for the leaders of these countries but for the people — that they would not have animosity between them but be united in reconciliation.

Ask that this would open doors of opportunities for the gospel. God has a way of showing up when things are difficult. Pray that he would make his name known across Ukraine and Russia as the result of this conflict.

We all can step in the gap and do something right where we live all around the world. Yes, there are many horrific things against humanity occurring in our world but this week the plan is to focus on the People of Ukraine. Pray, Pray, and Pray some more they need you to intercede for them. Blessings and Love To You ALL!
