One helpful way of thinking about prayer is to think of concentric circles. You know, the circle that’s inside of a circle, which is inside of another one, and so on. If we visualize our prayer life in this way, it can help us to pray for all the people and situations in our different “circles.” For example, your smallest circle would be your home, then your community, and eventually your world. For some of you, there might be other circles you want to add in, such as your job, your church, your extended family, etc. That’s great! This is a flexible method that molds to help you pray for everyone in your life.
“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” — Acts 1:8
You can join us in praying for the crisis in Ukraine and lift up specific requests to God:
“Rejoice in hope, be patient in affliction, be persistent in prayer.” —
- Pray for God’s protection over all His people in Ukraine.
- Pray for the wisdom and discernment for the leaders of Ukraine and all world leaders.
- Pray for the thousands of Ukrainian refugees that have been displaced from their home.
- Pray for the missionaries and aid workers who remain in Ukraine.
- Pray for Ukrainian believers to find comfort, peace and strength in God and share the source of their strength with others.
- Pray for hope in a situation that continues to look bleak—that God would bring beauty from ashes.
You can also help support the relief efforts already underway in Ukraine through our partner Samaritan's Purse.
Each day we want our church to come together and lift up specific requests to God:
For family relationships to be strengthened by submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ
For opportunities to serve your neighbors, and in doing so, share with them the love of Christ
For the 1 in 7 people and 1 in 5 children in WV that face hunger
For our country’s leaders to have wisdom and lead well (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
