Day 14

Praying for the Ukrainian People

We are approaching 1 month since the Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. From the newscasts, we learned that the Russian people did not want this invasion. Russian soldiers reported to their families they thought they were going on a training exercise. Many people have died, soldiers on both sides and many civilians! One man’s ego is bringing death and destruction to two nations.

Let’s use today for a fervent time of intercessory prayer for God to bring an end to the invasion.

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (CSB) First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Galatians 6:2 (CSB) Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Ephesians 6:18 (CSB) Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.
Father, we praise your Holy Name. We ask that you bring an end to the war in Ukraine and restore those who have been displaced back to their homes and families. We pray comfort to families who have experienced death and destruction. We ask You to miraculously put a stop to one man’s war against two nations. Father, we receive your promise through Jesus, [Jesus said] “13Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”                                
John 14:13-14
