As there are nearly 300 prayers posted on this site, I haven’t posted a new prayer for some time now. My writing efforts now focus on answering prayer requests and on the Third Millennium Man website.
Yesterday, someone requested a prayer for Ukraine, and a faithful online friend responded. Jan is a true servant of Christ. She has lovingly responded to many, many prayer requests here. Jan is a blessing for me and for many others.
Here is Jan’s heartfelt prayer for Ukraine:
. . . . . . .
We lift our brothers and sisters in Ukraine up to You. Your Word tells us that “You are our refuge and strength and ready to help in times of trouble” Psalm 46:1.
Give them strength and courage Father, and help them in this time of trouble. Hide them (Psalm 27:5) when trouble comes, out of reach of their enemy.
Draw near to them so they feel Your loving presence Jesus. Comfort them (2Corinthians 1:3-4) and surround them with those who will pray for and with them.
When fear is upon them bring to their minds that “You are with them, for You are their God; You will strengthen them, You will help them, You will uphold them with Your victorious right hand” Isaiah 41:10.
Keep them warm as they huddle in cold basements and parking garages. Provide them their daily bread.
Bring sweet sleep to them when they sleep at night, knowing You are watching over them (Psalm 121:4).
Give them godly wisdom, clarity and clear direction of the steps they should take.
Send your angels as a hedge of protection around the people of Ukraine (Psalm 91:11).
Bring confusion to the enemy, blind them and whatever evil they do, let it fall back upon them.
I pray that the heart of Vladimir Putin would soften and that he would relent. Bring conviction to the hearts of the Russian soldiers so they would lay down their weapons and retreat. Stir the hearts of the Russian people and let their voices be heard to this injustice.
God, You love justice, execute justice to the people of Ukraine. Assert Your righteousness. Triumph over evil. Establish peace in not only the land but in the hearts of the people.
God of mercy, bring fathers, sons and husbands back safely to their home and family.
All power is in Your mighty hand Lord. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers.
In the mighty name of Jesus,
