Ukraine Prayer (Psalm 61)

As I read this Psalm this morning, UKRAINE leaped off the page at me. Then I read it again in prayer for them.


This must be exactly what the Christians in Ukraine are feeling and praying right now. Imagine their heart as they pray this…


Psalm 61:1-4 O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to You for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for You are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!


Did you know there are reports that strange things are happening in Ukraine? Some have said that the bullets and missiles are not hitting them. They believe God is fighting for them. The Ukrainian Christians are imploring us to keep praying fervently for them.


This is how we can pray for them:


Psalm 61:1-4 O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, they cry to you for help when their heart is overwhelmed. Lead them to the towering rock of safety, for You are their safe refuge, a fortress where their enemies cannot reach them. Let them live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!


Dear Lord, As I sit here in safety and they are sheltered in ruins running out of food and water and with nothing to defend themselves from the enemy, I pray first for your Holy Spirit to come upon them and for them to truly know You, Lord. Please fill them with peace and strength in the middle of this terrible battle. Lord, I pray for their deliverance from their enemies which only You can provide. I pray this in Jesus’ name, for Your will to be done, and for all the nations, the one attacking and those sitting idly by to know that You are the Lord of all the earth. Amen.
