A Prayer for Ukraine

a prayer for Ukraine

The war in Ukraine has been going on for over a year now, and there seems to be no end in sight. Every day, innocent civilians are caught in the crossfire, and the death toll continues to rise. It’s hard to imagine what life must be like for those who are living in the midst of this conflict.

As the fighting continues, we must remember to keep the people of Ukraine in our prayers. We pray for an end to the violence, and for healing for all those who have been affected by this war. We pray for wisdom for the leaders involved, and for a solution that will finally bring peace to this troubled region.

A Prayer for Ukraine


We thank you that in every situation, every dark moment, you are active and working among us. Even when things seem at their bleakest, we trust in your sovereignty and strength. We rest in the knowledge that you have the power to move in any and every situation.

As we watch war unfold in Ukraine, we ask for your grace and peace to rule in the hearts and minds of all involved. Your word promises in Isaiah 26:3 that, “you keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.” We ask that the people of Ukraine would know your true and unwavering peace. 

We pray this now, that you would work in the hearts of world leaders and diplomats, and incline them toward peace. We lift up those who have committed to give their all to defend others, and we pray that you would protect them. 

We lift up the many brothers and sisters doing your work in Ukraine. We ask for their protection, and that they be able to freely continue serving you and the people around them. We also ask that they would be unafraid and unashamed of your word, and that you would enable them to walk in your strength and stand firm against the evil that faces them now.  We pray that in the face of fear, believers in Ukraine will find opportunities to hold on to the Good News of Christ, who offers us perfect peace in a world that offers none. May this time of unrest and persecution serve to ignite the Gospel in ways we can’t even imagine.

We know that you can do more than we ask or imagine, and it is in this confidence that we ask these things in Jesus’ name.
