“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10


As Ukraine faces the devastating reality of a Russian invasion, we want to encourage you to pray for the Lord’s mercy, protection, and wisdom for those in harm’s way. Here are some resources to help inform our prayers:

Four Reasons Christian’s Should Care About Ukraine:



This guide from Send Relief has additional suggestions:

  • Pray that Christians and missionaries in Ukraine would hope in the Lord and that many would come to saving faith in Christ through their witness.
  • Pray for the safety of the citizens of Ukraine as war begins and that their lives would be honored and protected.
  • Pray that those fleeing the country and those who will be unable to return home will find a Christlike welcome and a home in a new nation.
  • Pray for President Biden and global leaders as they navigate geopolitical tensions and attempt to respond with wisdom and discernment.
  • Pray that Vladimir Putin’s heart would be changed and that he would withdraw from Ukraine and not pursue additional aggression.


In the midst of the darkness, may it be the light of Christ that brings hope and help through His people, His Word, and His mercy shown to a war-torn region.
