Ken in Hayle Cornwall
Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your love, grace, mercy, forgiveness. You are a good, good God, You are a compassionate God, Thank You for sending your Son, Yeshua to pay for our [mankind] sins. We are ALL guilty of sins. You don’t want anyone to perish but all to come to repentance. Thank You, Yeshua, for Your Life, Death, Ressurection, [and sending Your Ruach Hakodesh] and You will return as our King of kings and Lord of lords. Father, I thank you for Your Word, Your Word is settled in heaven forever. Your Word that goes out from Your mouth will not return to You empty, it will do what You sent it to do. Your Word is sharper than any double-edged sword, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. God, You watch over Your Word to perform it. [For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.] The battle belongs to the Lord. [Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.] Father God, I pray for an end to the war in Ukraine, I pray no more lives [from both sides] would be lost without them first knowing You as their Saviour and Lord. I pray for the Spirit of repentance to come on ALL the Russians and Ukrainians, and that they would humble themselves before You, Mighty God. in repentance, and cry out to You, Yeshua, to save them. Father, Your word says ‘whoever’ called on the name of the Lord will be saved. Father, You keep your word. What the devil meant for bad with this war, You will use for good. Father, I pray Your protection on all the civilians… [women, children, pregnant women, old people, the unwell/sick people, wounded, those needing medications, hospital treatments, etc] …going to neighboring countries and elsewhere. I plead the blood of Yeshua over them all, Lord, send your angels to protect them. God, You, please bring an end to this war. You will be done on earth as in heaven. In Yeshua’s name, I pray, Amen.

Father of all wisdom, I pray for wisdom for the leaders of all nations to act in restraint and realization of their actions. I pray for comfort and help for the people under this conflict, may they hold firm in trust an reliance on You and Your goodness. Amen
Peter in Reading
God our Heavenly Father, I cry out to you with all my heart to please help the people of Ukraine. Place a hedge of protection around girls and women so they are not raped by Russian Soldiers who, we have heard, are using rape as a weapon of war. Please protect all vulnerable people and children from human traffickers and those that would do them harm. In the Name of your precious Son, Jesus Christ who suffered and died on the cross of Cruscifiction for our Salvation, I pray that the Russian troops leave Ukraine. that there is a cease fire allowing those who want to leave safe passage to elsewhere. Please keep all the brave men who stayed to fight safe and also the President and his family who has been leading from the front and stayed with his people. Bind up Satan and all his cohorts for we know, as it is written, that ” we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against Spiritual wickedness in high place” but your word also says that “the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church”; Satan is a defeated foe. Let your Glory be shown in victory for the Ukrainian people. Glory and Praise to you Heavenly Father, to Jesus Christ your Son and to the Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Patricia in Scotland
According to psalm 46, Lord please be Ukraine’s refuge, strength and very present help during this troubled time. May the You Lord of the heaven’s armies, the Man of War [who never loses a battle!] YHWH Zebaoth rise up to cause the demonic aggression to cease and destroy ALL the aggressor’s weapons so that the war may cease and peace be restored to the country. You dealt with Pharaoh, Sennacherib, Hitler and others like them; deal with this current aggressor and tyrant too. Indeed may we be stilled to know that Yahweh alone is God, in Ukraine, Russia and Europe, in Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Mary in London
Dear Lord – We ask that you gather the Ukrainian people, their President, Mr. Zelensky, and their military leaders under your wings and deliver them from evil. I don’t understand why 2000 years after Christ we have not evolved into a loving people towards each other and all living things on the planet you created for us. So much bloodshed, so much heartache, so much suffering with the ramifications of evil men felt for decades afterwards. I do not understand and all I can do is pray and support humanitarian groups through donations. Are we approaching the end times on an accelerated pathway? Between climate change, the pandemic, and now this war, it sure seems like it. No matter what, your are our refuge and our strength. Let our strength never waiver. Give our leaders wisdom, knowledge, and understanding – to be united and not divided – to resolve this tragic situation. And above all, save the Ukrainian people – the devil’s representative – Vlad Putin – is intent on destroying them.
Susan in Miami
Lord I bring before You the nation of Ukraine. Lord I pray for your divine protection to be upon the people, especially those who have yet to know Jesus as personal Lord and Saviour. Lord I pray for Russia. I pray for those who oppose the war to stand up and protest. I pray for the army, that those who are against the invasion will speak up.
Ming in Singapore
Father God please bring peace and restoration to the people of the Ukraine and please my Russia withdraw. Amen
Judy in Milton Keynes
Father, in accordance with Daniel 2:22, let every hidden thing in this war be exposed; expose the plans before they happen. I pray for your continued divine assistance and angelic help in releasing supernatural intelligence to Ukraine and allies, that weapons would malfunction, that angels would block the path and route of destruction on land, air and sea. That Russian soldiers would surrender and turn against this destructive plan. That all other Russian soldiers would stumble in confusion. For the salvation of Putin and every soldier on both sides who dies, show them your mercy and love Jesus, give them an opportunity to receive you. We pray for the protection of civilians, for women and children, fill them with peace and provide for their every need. I pray for the Ukrainian church and houses of prayer, that you would strengthen them and help them to be your hands and feet and demonstrate the true love of God. In your name, we pray, amen
Tamsin in Glasgow
That the collective prayer of believers in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, will even reach Vladimir Putin, somehow by divine revelation and permeate The Word of God ,the truth, to the leadership of those in the Kremlin, the generals, those men that have a vestige of wisdom and love towards their fellow humans and so truth, love and justice will prevail for the benefit of humankind. Bring about the cessation of hostilities and oppression of the good people, Christian believer’s in the great land of the Ukraine
Jack in Manchester
Gracious God, we pray for the people of Ukraine suffering from war. May they be held in your loving care and protection and given the strength to endure their suffering and hardship. Transform the hearts and minds of those who perpetuate the violence and oppression. Grant wisdom to world leaders in advancing efforts toward peace; may they not be compromised by self-interest and blind indifference. We ask all this through the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and in the name of your Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
Paisley in Renfrewshire, Scotland
Father Lord, what is it are you doing to this world? What lessons do you want us to learn? Innocent people are dying before our eyes and hope is evidently fading from my eyes… I hope and pray for all the innocent people who have gone before us and had not known you yet, that You can know their life and predicament… My Lord, please help those people who are lost and feel hopeless, give them strength to carry on the battle and they can know that You are Always Victorious and Only want the Best for them… Allow the tyrant ‘know the error of his ways and make him change his ways…
