How to Pray for Ukraine Today

11877936905 3546a73de2 b

Winter 2014 has become the most tragic period in Ukraine’s history of national development. For more than three months, there has been a very aggressive confrontation between the people of Ukraine and government special police forces. Demonstration lost its peaceful character after people were killed, and the 19th of February was a horrible day, marked by close to 900 injured people and 77 dead due to gunshot wounds. Prayer is much needed for families of those who lost their loved ones. May the Lord protect their hearts, minds, and souls from hatred and aggressive decisions.

Why Christians Should Care: Reflections from Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service

Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

Spontaneous shouts of “Tata Madiba!” in chorus of voice and body spread like waves throughout the stadium long before Nelson Mandela’s memorial service even began.  I turned to the Archbishop of Johannesburg to ask what they were saying.  “They’re chanting his name, ‘Father Madiba,’” he said with a smile.  “They’re chanting his name.”

6:36 p.m. – On a plane from Nagoya to Taiwan, then Hong Kong, then Johannesburg. It was a frantic morning after getting an email from South Africa about the possibility of an invitation to attend Nelson Mandela’s memorial and funeral services. Was a jolting shock to even hear of the possibility. An unbelievable honor. Never for a moment did I imagine that something like this would be possible; hence absolutely no prior preparation had been made on my part!

Week 4, Day 28: Media and the Gospel

Media – Traditional and New – has been a friend of the Gospel and the word of Christ, when it has been used strategically and creatively.

Week 4, Day 27: The Marketplace and World Evangelization

Also available in: Español | français

The Lord uses marketplace sectors (Medical, Education, Science, Government, Media, etc.) to allow his people opportunities to serve and share with those living outside the reach of the Gospel; however in some Creative Access Nations (CANs) many traditional tentmaking roles are increasingly suspected of being connected to evangelistic endeavors. 

Week 4, Day 26: Social Concerns and World Evangelization

Also available in: Español | français

Where does the Kingdom of God need to “come in power” in your region? In what ways is God being dishonored by the mistreatment and abuse of men, women, and children? As we reflect on the injustice and sadness of the world, we join together in prayer, asking for God’s mercy.

Week 4, Day 25: All Denominations – All Organizations

Also available in: Español | français

Is there ever room for rivalry in the house of God? Is it ever acceptable for God’s people to seek to advance their own ministry or agenda over another one? The Apostle Paul reminds us that if we have to ask these things, then we have missed the point of the Gospel; the Gospel that unites all of God’s people into one body.

Week 4, Day 24: Men and Women, Young and Old in Partnership

Also available in: Español | français

It’s been said by numerous authors, ethnographers, and sociologists that teens in the world’s urban centers have more in common with each other than with older generations in their own cultures.

Week 4, Day 23: The Global Body of Christ

Week 3, Day 20: A Survey of Fallenness

Also available in: Español | français

When we look at the world, what evidence of the Fall of humanity is visible?  Perhaps you don’t need to read further because that simple question has given you enough about which to pray.
