Praying for hope
Team Kharkov writes: “So often when we minister to those displaced by the conflict in Ukraine, we sense an overwhelming hopelessness filling their lives. Many had desired to return to their homes during the early summer months, to plant gardens and begin rebuilding their lives. For most, however, that return has been delayed by the continuing conflict.
“Pray for the body of Christ, represented through different churches in the Kharkov region that weekly seek to meet not only the physical needs of those they encounter, and but also the emotional and spiritual needs. Intercede for those who are not yet followers of Jesus as they are drawn by the Holy Spirit into the fellowship of believers. Pray that they will allow our God of hope to fill them with the joy and peace that only comes as they believe and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior.”
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13, ESV)
