15 Prayers In Times Of War And Violence

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Matthew 24:6-7

Greed and other flaws in humans will always make them collide with each other. Just as there are times even family members hate each other, there will be times nations will rise against each other and fight each other until a lot of human life and property is lost.

The imperfections of our physical beings are the cause of these conflicts. Cain killed his brother very early in the bible because he was jealous of the favor Abel gained from God. This signifies a natural tendency for human beings to hate each other because of greed and pure evil.

The Ten Commandments are summed up into love by Jesus Christ. This is because it is impossible for anyone to break them if they have love in their hearts towards their neighbors and brothers.

God gives us the choice to be what we want to be even though he entreats us to follow the path he has chosen for us. Of course, this results in bad choices which lead to the painful suffering and destruction of human life.

Two children from the same home may be raised a certain way but one of them will choose the right path and the other the wrong path.

God has given us dominion over this earth and has told us to love and respect each other. There will always be times when we turn to conflict and destruction because of the greed and hate in our hearts. ..

a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace

Ecclesiastes 3:8.

There will be time for war, pain, and suffering. However just as the rainstorm comes and destroys everything in its path, there will also be a time for peace and harmony.

As Christians, we should ask God for protection and peace to reign on our earth since Christ is the Prince of Peace. We must do all we can to help those in war-ravaged areas so that we can reduce their distress.

Just as some people are hell-bent on destroying others, we must be determined to help them. We must encourage them to receive Christ in their hearts and accept the hope of glory in their future. When it looks like all hope is lost we must present the word of God to them and make them strong in spirit.

Prayer for Ukraine

War is hell and the people it affects most are children and the vulnerable. The world is not a perfect place but as Christians, we have to hope against all odds that our God will intervene. The greed of men has caused there to be a lot of anger in others and those who feel they have the tools to take over are using force to do so. They do not care about the children and vulnerable people they destroy along the way.

God made the earth so we could live here in peace and love but the devil has turned it into a wasteland where lives are destroyed and greed and vile win always. Pray for God’s intervention today.

He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore

Isaiah 2:4
