Where Does My Help Come From? Praying for Ukraine

As we look at the news of war in Ukraine, our hearts are so heavy for all those that are affected, directly or indirectly, because of the daily changing circumstances. And as the consequences ripple around the world many people are feeling hopeless and lost. We weep with those who weep and mourn with those who mourn. However, we also remember that, no matter how people turn God’s world into a battleground, the Lord himself is Sovereign. We may not understand his ways, but he is still Lord of all. 

This week an Inspire band committed to reading the Psalms of Accent (Psalms 120-134) taking time to read, reflect and pray as an act of faith. When you look at these Psalms from a place of feeling hopeless, they take a lot of courage to read and affirm. 

Psalm 121 begins: 
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Sometimes it is even hard to lift up our eyes, but that is what our spiritual family is for. In the band that began this commitment, they pray for one another and communicate by Signal messenger almost daily to help each other to keep turning their eyes to the Lord, even when the news in our world drags them down. 

We would love to tell you more about how Inspire fellowship bands help us to keep our eyes on the Lord, our help and refuge. Contact us.

If you are struggling or feel at loss for words, we would be happy pray for you and with you. Contact our prayer team
