A Prayer for Ukraine

Whille on a prayer walk, I was prompted to ask the Holy Spirit for three prayer outcomes in Ukraine. Not wishes but the faithful prayers of God's people.
The first that came to mind is for protection of all the men and women of God who serve as pastors, priests, ministers; for their safety and health… So that… God could work in and through them to present the Gospel in a way that births a movement of people into a faith-hope--love relationship with Jesus Christ.
Secondly, that God would raise up unprecedented prayer across the globe, not just for Ukraine, but across Ukraine. Children-Youth-Adults voicing prayers that pierce through the clutter of ritual or mindless repetition into the heart of God and mind of Christ. Prayers that become reality by the filling and empowering of the Spirit. Prayers that repel their invaders and plant seeds for many generations of nation building and blessing.
Thirdly, that Ukraine would become a giving nation. Sharing and sending, expressing and exporting, the peace and joy of the Gospel of Jesus...so that the enemy, both human and spiritual, regrets the invasion and destruction they perpetrated upon a peaceful people.Prayers that result in not only the end of the war but also in the rebuilding and restoration of the nation to such a level that it becomes a light to the world for courage, determination, and righteousness.
Even if the Russians defeat Ukraine, the people of Ukraine will still be heroes for their resistance and resolve. But I think the Lord wants us to pray for the Ukraine people to dispel their enemy. A victory of right over wrong, truth vanquishing false truth, good defeating evil, righteousness overcoming dictorial power,. For Ukraine to be restored by God‘s glory to such a levelthat their heroic fight inspires righteous resistance across Russia; people declaring the liberty and justice of the gospel of Jesus Christ for all.
