Oh Lord, thank You for the Promises that You make for our souls to be filled. How true it is that YOUR goodness in our lives is satisfying. Lord, I trust You to satisfy my soul, so that I will not be satisfied with anything else, and that I will see Your likeness in my life. Thank You Lord…

NOTE: Look back 5 days ago, to February 24th and see a prayer regarding satisfaction, in a different context.

Tragic Prayers for Tragic Times

This posted Friday, Feb 25th, and is followed today with a similar theme around prayer.

Specifically, how do we pray during tragic times?

But in the post below, YOU WILL SEE BEHIND THE SCENES what the Ukrainian church is doing while their nation is being invaded by Russian forces.

Their Plans Prompt Our Prayers

Are you like me? My heart hurts to see what is going on in Ukraine. And I want to help.

So, I ask, “How can I help?”

  • You can stand on a street corner & wave a Ukrainian flag
  • You can give money
  • You can join a pro-Ukrainian parade
  • You can paint your face azure & yellow
  • You can write pretty poems
  • You can mock politicians

All of these we’ve seen on FB, Tw & IG, right?

But, there is another idea. . .
Why don’t we hear what the church in Ukraine is doing and prayerfully come alongside them?

Last night I saw this article from the SBC (https://erlc.com/resource-library/articles/4-reasons-why-christians-should-care-about-whats-happening-in-ukraine/):

Those that have chosen to stay are committed to meeting the needs of their neighbors as they are able, and have said, “When this is over, the citizens of Kyiv will remember how Christians have responded in their time of need.”

How did that prompt you to pray?

Let me give you another peek at what the Ukrainian Church is doing.

A friend of mine (now living in Pennsylvania) started a church in Ukraine with another gentlemen, who is still there. He hasn’t been on social media for 23 hours, but as my friend is quick to note, he may just be saving his battery.

These were his last words:

How does that prompt you to pray?

Shortly before the text above, came this brief exchange:

Is any of this giving YOU hope?

I trust you are getting hope and motivation to pray for the church in Ukraine.

Again I ask you, how?

May I simply suggest, that you come to the Lord HUMBLY (Psalm 138:6, Proverbs 3:34, 1 Peter 5:5b).

I think we’ve lost the art of coming in to the Lord’s presence with humility. We don’t need bombastic praying (https://markmirza.com/glass-packs-on-our-praying/) or prayer filled with lots of words (Ecclesiastes 5:2, Matthew 6:7).

If you’re going to take the time to pray, then don’t run the risk of your prayers not being heard.

Ukrainian Church Plans Prompt My Praying

I watch what the Ukrainian Church is doing and I want to do my part. So, I plan to pray as follows.

Maybe this will help you also:

  • Pray for the resources of Ukrainian Christians who are helping their fellow countrymen.
  • Pray for opportunities to supply needs and the boldness to act when a need is seen.
  • Pray that each opportunity to engage their fellow countrymen, allows for a testimony of hope.
  • Pray for more connections with soldiers and with civilians.
  • Where there are tears and panic, pray these Ukrainian Christians will have a peace which transcends everyone’s understanding.
  • Pray they’d have such peace that they are embarrassed.
  • Pray for all Ukrainian Christians to be reminded that our residence is in heaven, not here on earth.
  • Pray for the freedom to shed tears.

Honored to serve,
