Prayer for Europe
Without consistent, faithful prayer, our ministry becomes man’s efforts to effect change in the spiritual climate of Europe. No great work for God happens without concerted prayer. You don’t have to travel to Europe or Russia to have a strategic part in changing the spiritual climate there. You just have to be willing to stay current with the needs and opportunities and pray. We would like to suggest several practical ways you can do this:
• JOIN A PRAYER CALL
By joining our monthly prayer calls you can make an impact for the Lord by helping to change the moral and spiritual climate of Europe and Russia through prayer. Connect by phone once a month, while praying with like minded others for those in Europe.
• JOIN A PRAYER TEAM
Connect with a group of like-minded people who have sensed God calling them to pray regularly for the spiritual conditions in Europe. These men and women prayer teams of 4-8 “meet” together by phone during the first week of each month to pray using a Praise and Prayer Update list of current ways God is working across the continent. Occasionally, a larger group of men and women connect by phone to pray specifically with ministry staff in one location.
Country of the month – Ukraine and Russia
With the war being waged between Russia and Ukraine, we have decided to ask you to pray for both countries this month. There are many wonderful followers of Christ in both places and many are crying out to God to end the bloodshed and violence. Early on in the conflict a ministry group in Ukraine asked the world to pray for this:
- Pray that the shedding of blood on our streets would stop.
- Pray that our government leaders and opposition would humble themselves and agree to search for a compromise in a peaceful way.
- Pray for unity among believers. Pray for understanding among denominations.
- Pray that our country would remain open to the Gospel no matter what happens.
- Pray for the safety of our staff even during the peaceful times. There is a prayer tent at the protest (other prayer centers have since been formed) which many of our staff have been participating in.
- Pray for the national staff team to have wisdom to know how to direct people during these difficult times.
Please pray God strengthens the courage, resolve, and faith of all believers across these lands and provides a way to promote peace between countries. For more on either country see Russia and Ukraine.
