How to Pray During War

In this episode, I discuss God’s sovereignty during war, how we should pray during war, and what our church in Medgidia is doing to help the refugees.

How do we understand God’s sovereignty?

Even during war, God is still in control. These verses help us remember that man has no power over God’s will:

Proverbs 19:21 – Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Proverbs 21:1 – The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.

Romans 9:21 – Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?

How do we pray during times of war?

  1. Thank God that His sovereign plan will never fail.
  2. Make your requests known to Him.
  3. Pray that He will be glorified through this time of difficulty.
  4. Ask Him to show you what you can do to further His Kingdom.
