12 Prayers For The World | Samples To Help You Pray For Everyone

Why would you ever be selfish in your prayers? It’s time to show some love. Say any of these prayers here for Ukraine and the world. Help make our world a better place. God is ever ready to grant us peace.

Prayers for the world

Evil is still taking control of our beautiful planet. This is nothing we can stop entirely. Why? The ruler of this world began taking control a long time ago and now he knows his days are short… Seeking whom he may devour.

Eventually, all Biblical prophesies concerning the end times would be fulfilled. “Satan’s soldiers” are working hard to destroy innocent souls and force them to submit to their satanic principles. Isn’t Vladimir Putin committing a war crime? Shedding innocent blood…

What can we do best? Let’s say a prayer for Ukraine and the entire world. God knows how to intervene and fight for his children.

• COVID-19 has killed 5.97 million people around the world.

• More than 2,000 Ukrainian civilians have been killed during Russia’s ongoing invasion. This statement was released by Ukraine’s State Emergency Service.

As believers in Christ Jesus, we can never underestimate the power of prayer — especially when we do that together — the chains of the enemy will be broken off just like how the prayer of intercession freed Peter from prison(Acts 12:5).

The great commission is to reach out to the world and point humankind to Jesus Christ, the Prince Of Peace. He is the only one to rely on for a complete peace of mind, protection, love, and more importantly salvation.

Today, I write to remind all Christians to say some prayers for the world. Look at what is happening between Russia and Ukraine? A war has been declared. It’s getting crazier and crazier… Let’s pray so that it doesn’t escalate into 3rd World War.

We aren’t yet done with COVID-19 and its demonic schemes. Then here comes the insurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, the Earthquake in Haiti, mudslide in Tonga, Coupe in West Africa , and the Russia and Ukraine war.

The world’s economy and social lives have already been jeopardized. Pain and suffering are sweeping over us like whirlwind. This is what the Devil wants.

Why Say A Prayer For The World?

It’s a matter of concern to every God-fearing being; A divine responsibility. Here in this article, I have a collection/samples of prayers you can use to pray for the world — especially for Ukraine. Add these prayers to your prayer timetable. You can bookmark this page for future reference. I will be updating it.

Remember those going through all forms of persecution, discrimination, health problems, oppressions, and other forms of abuse in your prayers. Prayers work — so let’s do it together.

Samples Of Prayers For The World

Jesus commanded us to pray for everyone, even our enemies. It is time you put on your love lens and say some prayers for our corrupt world.

Charles Spurgeon quote about war

“We are up to the hilt advocates for peace, and we earnestly war against war. I wish that Christian men would insist more and more on the unrighteousness of war, believing that Christianity means no sword, no cannon, no bloodshed, and that, if a nation is driven to fight in its own defence, Christianity stands by to weep and to intervene as soon as possible, and not to join in the cruel shouts which celebrate an enemy’s slaughter. . . . Today, then, my brethren, I beg you to join with me in seeking renewal.” (From An All-Round Ministry, a college address in 1880). — Charles Spurgeon

1. Hope For Everyone

Prayer for the world to give hope

Sometimes this world is hard to understand.
And even when we trust you, our hearts still ache.
So we come to you today asking for the hope we need.
Hope that sees past the here-and-now to the then-and-there.
Hope that believes what we cannot yet glimpse.
Hope that holds our hearts up in the moments when life brings us to our knees.
You are the only One who can sustain us.
You are the only One who can save us.
Be the rescuer of our souls, the deliverer of our dreams, the holder of our hearts.
We believe that even the darkest night must lead to dawn.
We wait with expectation.
Give us courage.
Surround us with comfort.
Love us through to the other side in the way only you can.
We put our hope, and our hopes for those we love, in you.

2. For The Nation

Dear God, give the leaders of this nation the wisdom and integrity to lead our nation in the best direction, where You are put in Your rightful position – and give each one discernment I pray, when making decisions or drawing up the legislation and laws that they pass – and may the decisions that they reach be godly and wise.

I pray also that You would protect our nation from other peoples that may seek to enter our borders, uninvited, and ask that You would be with us and keep our roads, ports, borders, and crossings safe and uncompromised.

As the days become increasingly dark in our country I pray that the light of Your love will shine on this land. May peace reign in our nation and protect us from those that would seek our downfall, I pray.

I really thank You that you have placed me in this land and I am grateful that I am a citizen of this nation – but I know that my home is in heaven,

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

6. A Loving Father

Thank You Father that You have made Yourself known to humanity through the Word of God. But forgive us Lord, for we are a rebellious and prideful race and yet You loved us so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to lay down His sinless life as the perfect sacrifice for our sin.. so that by that death and resurrection, all who believe on Him might not perish, but have everlasting life.

Thank You that in Your love You chose to communicate with us, by the word, by Your holy apostles and prophets and revealed to us Your glorious plan of salvation, so that whoever believes on the Lord Jesus Christ would not be condemned – but whosoever does not believe in the only begotten Son of God is condemned already – because he has not believed on the sinless Son of Your love – Who loved us so much that He willingly went to the cross to redeem us from the penalty of sin, and reconcile us back to You eternal.

Thank You that Your Word to us is like a perfumed love-letter that has been forwarded from heaven to all Your children – in love. Thank You for the truth it contains and thank You for all Your perfect and unconditional love and grace towards Your children. May we assimilate these truths deep within the bowels of our soul and glorify Your name for the unconditional love that You have seen fit to pour out on all Your children..by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ – in Whose name we pray,
