Ask God to bring good, meaningful friendships into our lives and to strengthen our friendships with fellow believers as we spur one another on to love and good deeds. Pray for God to strengthen and sustain the marriages within our faith family. Pray for husbands and wives within our church to faithfully reflect a picture of the relationship between Christ and His Church.

This week we are praying for the people of Ukraine. The country of Ukraine is in Eastern Europe, sharing a border with Russia, and has a population of over 43 million. It was once a part of the Soviet Union but declared its independence in 1991. On February 23, Russia began a large-scale military attack on Ukraine, striking major military infrastructures across the country. Russian convoys have entered from all directions throughout the country. Join us this week as we pray for the people of Ukraine and for peace in this conflict.
Day 1: Pray for the people of Ukraine to have strength, courage, and perseverance as they endure this conflict.
Day 2: One of the biggest challenges right now is logistics in leaving or finances for staying. Pray for safe passages out of the conflict zones for those who are evacuating and displaced from their homes. Pray for those who are remaining to be able to allocate resources for food and resources for survival.
Day 3: Pray for the most vulnerable, especially children living in orphanages throughout Ukraine. Pray for God to protect them and provide for their needs as they face dangerous situations.
Day 4: Pray for Ukrainian believers as they seek to be a light in the darkness. Pray for local churches in Ukraine to be a place of hope and refuge in this time of war.
Day 5: Pray for Ukrainians who have never heard the gospel to have an opportunity to experience the hope of Jesus.
Day 6: Pray for world and national officials to lead with wisdom to end this conflict. Pray for peace in Ukraine.
