Praying as the Spirit leads

I was sitting in a band meeting a few days ago. In the conversation I was asking after Mary and Andrew. We met Mary in Ukraine on an Inspire Discipleship cohort and she has become part of our Inspire family. She and her husband, Andrew, had to leave Ukraine when war broke out but they recently returned to Ukraine.

During my band meeting we were getting ready to pray when my phone pinged with a notification from the Inspire Prayer Group. I don’t usually look at messages in band time but I saw that it was from Mary! Our band paused as I read the message. It was definitely an intervention by the Lord. Mary and Andrew were in hiding listening to the sound of war drones going over their head. Immediately my band stopped to pray. 

It reminded me that God is at work in ways we do not understand. In small ways, like putting a conversation in our minds for someone who then pops up at exactly that moment on a message asking for prayer. And in big ways, like watching over Mary and Andrew in war torn Ukraine. 

Join us as we continue to pray for Mary and Andrew, and all those that are affected by the war in Ukraine. Come Lord Jesus Come. 

Isaiah 55:8-13
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”
