7 Prayers for the People and Children of Ukraine

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people” (Ephesians 6:18).

Since Russia invaded Ukraine in the largest assault on a European country since World War II, the people and children of Ukraine have been in the thoughts and hearts of those around the world. While it may seem like a helpless situation, as Christians, we need to be reminded that we don’t have to be bystanders; rather, we can actively participate in the power of prayer.

To guide us in our prayers for the people and children of Ukraine, Compassion International recently released a prayer guide with 7 topics to bring before our Lord, whose ears are attentive to our prayers (1 Peter 3:12).

1. Pray about the conflict.
“He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire” (Psalm 46:9).

2. Pray about those in authority.
“May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD, when they hear what you have decreed” (Psalm 138:4).

3. Pray about access to food and water.
“You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing” (Psalm 145:16).

4. Pray about interrupted education.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” (Psalm 32:8).

5. Pray about the health of children and access to medical care.
“In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind” (Job 12:10).

6. Pray about caregivers, teachers, medical professionals, and those assisting refugees.
“Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the LORD delivers them in times of trouble” (Psalm 41:1).

7. Pray about the local church.
“On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it” (Matthew 16:18b).
