PRAYER FOR NATIONS
How is God calling you to pray for the nations?
- The people of Ukraine now that Russia has invaded. Pray for strength, courage and perseverance as their home is threatened by conflict.
- Safe passages out of conflict zones for displaced populations.
- Government officials to lead with wisdom in this tense time.
- The estimated 4 million displaced people who will be forcibly removed from their homes. Pray that in the face of conflict, they will find psychological, emotional and spiritual healing from this trauma.
- Soldiers on both sides of this conflict to be safe from harm.
- Local churches, relief workers and humanitarian aid organizations to care for what could be a massive wave of displaced peoples in Ukraine.
- Disciples Church in L’viv, Ukraine, and its church plant in Bryukhovychi. Many of the people there are displaced from the East. Pray for peace for these believers as they had hoped this conflict from eight years ago was over and now, they are facing it again.
- The Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary as it wrestles with how to assist its students in this time of crisis.
- Ukrainian believers as they seek to be a light in the darkness.
- Ukrainians who have never heard the gospel to have an opportunity to experience the hope of Jesus
May God be gracious to us and bless us; may he make his face shine upon us so that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations…and all the ends of the earth will fear him.
-Psalm 67:1-2, 7b
Ways to pray
I am actively seeking out those that God has called to serve in missions. My goal is to help people discern if God is calling them to the mission field and help them get there. Additionally, I'm looking for ways in which my organization, RCE International, can support those on the mission field through training and the development of other partnerships.
