Pray Now: 10 Prayers for the Church of Ukraine

Pray these prayers right now, fast and pray, cry out to God on their behalf. 

"Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." -Hebrews 13:3

10. Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray that you would supernaturally provide for the body of Christ in Ukraine. Protect their churches from bomb blasts, protect the people from bullets, feed and cloth those who are going without, lead the body of Christ in Ukraine to treasure-troves of food, water, shelter, and safety in this crisis. Amen.

9. Father, we pray that the Ukrainian church would shine very, very brightly in this dark time for the country. We pray the Ukrainian church would be living witnesses to the power of Christ right now. We pray that the lost in Ukraine would look in awe at the faith of the Ukrainian church right now and be absolutely amazed. Then they would turn and ask, and receive Christ as their saviors as well, by the hundreds and thousands, in Jesus name, amen.

8. Lord, we pray for the children of the Ukraine as they face great danger, and as their parents worry for them. We pray God you would preserve their innocence through this, that you would keep them save in bomb shelters and subways, that they would see hope in their parents eyes, and find hope in Christ Jesus during this chaos, that they might learn to sing, 'Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so,' in Jesus name, amen.

7. God we loose your angels in the authority of Jesus Christ to fight across the cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Odesa, and Donetsk, and the smaller settlements, that these angelic forces would strike down demons and principalities and powers of the air in the name of Jesus God rise up and defeat the enemy forces across Ukraine, we cancel their schemes, and stomp upon the evil one in Jesus name, declaring victory, binding every demon across Ukraine, cutting off their schemes and coming into agreement with the perfect will of God, in Jesus name, amen. 

6. Lord, we pray for the ukrainian soldiers and volunteers fighting for their nation we pray God you would supernaturally protect them, provide provision and safety and skill in combat and in care for one another, and we also pray for russian soldiers who belong to you, and those who are called by you, that you would protect them from death, and lead them toward your heart, toward safety, and healthy, and salvation, in Jesus name, amen.

5. Father, we pray for the hospital workers, emergency crews, police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, red cross, salvation army, and other charitable groups that are most needed now, God, we pray for divine encounters with people who are injured or hurting, people who are afraid, or separated from loved ones, that you would use your service workers, with hearts filled with compassion, to be that vital hand of help in the darkest of moments in people's lives, in Jesus Christ name, amen.

4. Father, we pray for the president of the Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, thank you God for his zeal and boldness in defending his nation and standing for his people. God we pray you would give him great wisdom and strength and knowledge and zeal. Please protect him and his family. Please give him everything he needs to stand boldly in this moment, and may he know Christ as his savior. Lord we also pray for Vladimir Putin, that you would soften his heart, and change his path, that you would make him like nebuchadnezzar, to be called to repentance, to give glory to the God of heaven, God may you transform Putin, and make him a Christ follower in the name of Jesus, amen. 

3. Lord we pray that the church of Ukraine would have great faith right now in their time of need. Please protect them as they hide, as they flee, as they stand, as they serve the hurting God, may they be the hands and feet of Jesus in this time of the country's sorrow, in Jesus name, amen.

2. God we pray for the thousands upon thousands of people who are becoming refugees because of this crisis. Lord we pray you would lead them to safety in various countries where they find friends, safety, and fellow members of the body of Christ who will help them rebuild their lives and find new hope in the renewal of Christ Jesus, in Jesus name, amen.

1. Lord God Almighty, we praise you in the storm God. We praise you because you are at work even in the darkest of times. Lord, have mercy on your body of Christ in Ukraine, truly God, as they suffer, as they seek refuge, as they go without, we as the body of Christ elsewhere, suffer as though we are with them in the subways and bunkers and hideouts. God, we suffer with them, and we cry out for your mercy upon them. May we hear of miracles in the Ukraine, may we hear of healings in the Ukraine, may we hear of revival in the Ukraine, may we hear of your divine hand powerfully upon the Ukrainian body of Christ and the lost and hurting in that nation now, and forever more in Jesus Christ name, we enforce this in the heavenly realms, in Jesus authority and name, amen!
