My Prayer For You Today

Pastor Joe | March 1, 2022 | My Prayer For You Today


March 1, 2022

We have decided to stay, both as a family and as a church. When this is over, the citizens of Kyiv will remember how Christians have responded in their time of need.

And while the church may not fight like the nation, we still believe we have a role to play in this struggle. We will shelter the weak, serve the suffering, and mend the broken. And as we do, we offer the unshakable hope of Christ and his gospel.


A recent update from a Ukrainian Pastor

Father, we ask You once more that You would, by some means, cause peace to be re-established throughout the earth. 


Oh, let Your Kingdom come without the use of the sword.

Oh…war, will you not rest!

Oh, sword put yourself into your scabbard and be still; 

for the sake of the great Prince of Peace, we ask it.


At present, Father, the nations are heavily armed and are inventing weapons more and more terrible as if the chief end of man could only be answered by destroying the myriads of his fellows. Yet peace will prevail one day; yes, and so prevail from your promise that instruments of destruction shall be beaten into other shapes and used for better purposes.


Thank you that peace will be established only by the reign of the Prince of Peace. He must teach the people by his Spirit, renew their hearts by his grace, and reign over them by his supreme power, and then will they cease to wound and kill. Man is a monster once his blood is up, and only the Lord Jesus can turn this lion into a lamb. By changing man’s heart, his bloodthirsty passions are removed.


We offer a prayer today to the Lord and Giver of Peace that he would speedily put an end to war and establish concord (agreement, peace treaties) over the whole world. For Jesus’ sake. Amen.

Prayer is a multisided powerful force for good. Thank you for praying.
