Continue to pray for Ukraine/Russia

  1. Pray for the churches in Ukraine, Russia, Poland and Romania as they continue to lead humanitarian efforts.

  2. Pray that corridors remain open for people to get out and needed supplies to get in.

  3. Pray for soldiers on the front line that fear would be replaced by a trust in God - that they would come to the saving grace of the gospel.

  4. Pray for military chaplains on both sides of the conflict that they would have many opportunities to present the gospel.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress."

Psalm 46

Continue to pray for Ukraine/Russia

We continue to have a posture of 'Come up here' from Revelation 4:1. This gives us a heavenly perspective. We need to see this situation in the Ukraine from the eyes of the Father. The marriage of Word and Holy Spirit helps us to know how to pray. We are looking for Holy Spirit guidance to give us the words that we will pray back to Him.

"In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his

paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."

Isaiah 2:2-4 NIV

  1. Pray that Russian and Ukraine would come to a diplomatic agreement. Pray for healing, wholeness and restoration of relationships.

  2. Pray a hedge of protection around the defenceless.

  3. Pray for humanitarian resources to be able to get to the need.

  4. Pray for the church in Ukraine and in Russia that they would be beacons of light, hope and peace.

  5. Pray for quick resolution.

Prayer for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine 

Hi everyone,

I received some interesting prayer points from UK regarding the situation going on in Ukraine. The points are Worship, Witness, and Wisdom. This caught my attention, particularly because the topic for the Canopy of Prayer teaching this past Thursday February 24th was about the importance of Worship in Turbulent Times.

Our friends in the U.K. wrote:

‘As we’ve prayed and talked about this escalating issue, we feel that God has brought three words into view in relation to the specific situation and offer them to you for you to pray. The words are: Worship, Witness and Wisdom. Let us use these to pray for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine’.

I would like to borrow from this outline and add our own take on things.

Worship

As I shared on Thursday morning: as we raise up a standard of worship, we can be used as a great ‘push-back’ against the powers of darkness standing with our brothers and sisters in both the Ukraine and also with the Russian Christians. Christians in Ukraine are very strong and resolute, but I understand that asking them to worship in the midst of this conflict is not easy. So, I want to encourage you, to intercede for them with worship and your song. Pray that God would move in supernatural ways and bring scriptures and revelation to our brothers and sisters who are on the ground in Ukraine. Let’s not leave them alone in this.

Witness

In this chaos and time of grief, many are crying out to God for help. Let us pray that God would be raising up those who are able to minister to the hurting and the sense of loss by bring the light of the gospel. Pray that God’s people will be activated not just to look after their own needs but to love their neighbours as themselves, in very real and practical ways. God help them.

"And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace."

James 3:18

Wisdom:

As we gather together to pray, let’s engage ourselves in asking for wisdom for all our political leaders in light of what is going on. As the UK intercessors have written, “let’s ‘man mark’ by praying for specific leaders”. In particular, let's pray for the Ukrainian and Russian leaders, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Vladimir Putin. We should also lift up the leaders of the Baltic nations as well as President Biden and our own Prime Minister Trudeau. 

As we pray for wisdom, we are of course asking God to align us to His purposes and to help us to not be solely dependent on the media in what is being reported. Pray that other lines of communication will be opened that will not be impeded by cyber-attacks to help us have a clear understanding of what is going on. Let’s call out to God asking for His truth and His protection for the people of Ukraine.

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way."

1Timothy 2:1,2
