Our hearts are breaking for the people of Ukraine and all those affected by the actions taken in eastern Europe. God directs us to pray for others, and specifically for those in authority.
I hope to gather enough people to pray for this situation continuously, over the next 16 hours, in 10 minutes intervals. We will pray specifically for all those in Ukraine, Russia, and the rulers of countries making decisions that will affect the outcome of this conflict. Will you join me?
We will being today, February 25th at noon and conclude tomorrow at 4pm. Although some may want to sign up to pray further into the day(s) ahead.
If you commit to joining me, I would love for you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first name and the time that you will be praying.
Let’s pray for God’s blessings, direction, and wisdom.
Have you known the power that comes from reading, meditating on, and memorizing God's Word. It truly helps against the attacks of the evil one?
May I challenge you to read these verses every day for a week? They may quickly become your prayer also.
14-15 When I think of the wisdom and scope of his plan, I fall down on my knees and pray to the Father of all the great family of God—some of them already in heaven and some down here on earth-- 16 that out of his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you the mighty inner strengthening of his Holy Spirit. 17 And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; 18-19 and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. And so at last you will be filled up with God himself.
20 Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. 21 May he be given glory forever and ever through endless ages because of his master plan of salvation for the Church through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 3:16-21 NLB
