Praying for a World in Conflict

While many of us are focused and praying for the war in Ukraine, I recently received a map of various world conflicts (see below) detailing the many ongoing conflicts around the world in 2021. Multitudes of people around the world have been dealing with war and unrest, often for decades, and are hurting as well. As we pray for the Ukraine situation and the people suffering from it’s consequences (a worthy prayer subject, to be sure), I encourage you to also pray for the trauma, suffering, fear and panic others are experiencing, as well as for wisdom in meeting refugee needs.

12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
    the afflicted who have no one to help.
13 He will take pity on the weak and the needy
    and save the needy from death.
14 He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
    for precious is their blood in his sight. (Psalm 72:12-14, NIV)
