“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 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. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” Ephesians 6:10-18 (NLT)
Pray without ceasing for Ukraine, alert, persistent, and fervent in the strength of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!Tweet
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, clothe the Ukrainian believers with Your strength and power. They are fighting against an evil ruler and the spiritual forces of the dark and evil spirits. Equip the Ukrainians with every piece of Your armor so that they will be able to resist the enemy. May they put on the belt of truth and body armor of Your righteousness as they stand their ground. Fully prepare them as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death. May their feet walk in shoes of peace that proclaim the Gospel. Give them the shield of faith that will stop the fire and weapons of evil. Cover their heads with Your salvation as they take Your Word as their sword, for it is sharper than any two-edged sword. All-Powerful King, we pray fervently for Your perfect will to be done. Be glorified and honored by Your brave and faithful believers. In Jesus’ precious name and will, we pray. Amen.
