“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

Father,

It is a time like no other for Your Church to come together and pray, especially for the people of Ukraine and for our volatile world.

Thank you for the courageous stand that Ukrainians are taking. Nothing can separate them from Your love. No army, no godless tyrant, not even death itself.

You are the God of the impossible. May You do impossible things on behalf of the Ukraine people calling out to You … mothers, fathers, teens, church leaders, civic leaders, soldiers, children, the elderly … show them the way through this darkness. Fight on their behalf. Be with them as they grieve the atrocities. Be with those in other nations who are facing similar evil and despair.

I sense that it is a time for repentance around the globe for our apathy. You know every sin that troubles our thoughts and tries to separate our hearts from Your love. We lay them down that You might clean our hearts. Forgive us Father. Help us to turn from petty things and love as You love. Give us the strength to pray fervently and to stand with wise resolve in these times.

In Jesus Name

I am devoting much of this year to joining with others in prayer, so am therefore filling my social media pages with requests like this. I invite you to join along with prayers and requests of your own. Join in silently or add to the comments.

It is an awesome thing to watch the Lord at work through the prayers of His children.

Blessed,

Shelly
