Issue 600 – National Prayer Needs

Additional National Prayer Needs

Pray for our Military

A new agreement between the Department of Defense and Papua New Guinea could provide “unimpeded access” to the area for pre-positioning troops, a hedge against the expansionism of China in the region. Six key ports and airports on the island would be available for troops and naval vessels along with “exclusive” control of some zones for development. 

Pray for the members of the U.S. Armed Forces wherever they may be deployed. 


The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky said “If Ukraine would lose, if Russia would occupy Ukraine, Russia will continue going towards Baltic countries, Poland, etcetera. And they will start war with one of the NATO countries, and at this moment, the U.S. would have to choose the collapse of NATO or go to war.” 

Pray for the U.S. and its allies as they continue to support Ukraine in the conflict with Russia and that the war remains confined to those two nations. 


Russia’s deployment of tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus is an “element of deterrence so that all those who are thinking about inflicting a strategic defeat on us are not oblivious to these circumstances,” Russian President Putin said in a warning to the United States. 

Pray for the president and his foreign advisors and their responses to Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.  


There is a shortage of chemotherapy drugs used to fight cancer, including cisplatin and carboplatin. Oncologists have resorted to rationing care as advocacy groups and legislators argue that reliance on so few manufacturers only exacerbates the supply chain problem. 

Pray for drug manufacturers and members of Congress as they make decisions regarding medications. Pray for the oncologists and cancer patients during the drug shortage. 


A strategic partnership was announced following a meeting between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Chinese President Xi Jinping. President Xi stated, “We are good friends and partners. We have always firmly supported the just cause of the Palestinian people to restore their legitimate national rights. China is willing to strengthen coordination and cooperation with the Palestinian side to promote a comprehensive, just, and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue as soon as possible.” 

Pray for Israeli leaders and U.S. officials as they assess China’s insertion of itself into the Israeli-Palestinian issue as a broker of peace. 


A new study shows the number of people migrating from California to Texas is increasing, as roughly 300 California households are leaving the state each day. The New York to Florida migration is similar. The move is made popular by increases in remote working opportunities, along with lower housing costs, a more business-friendly environment, and no state income taxes. 

Pray for the leaders of the states who are adding residents and those losing them.

Pray for Goodness in America

The annual Values and Beliefs poll conducted by Gallup revealed that support for same-sex relationships has decreased, down 7 percent in one year, and at its lowest level since 2019, though more than half still feel favorably toward gay and lesbian relationships. The same poll shows 55 percent of Americans believe changing one’s gender is “morally wrong.” 

Pray for Americans to embrace godly principles and return to the nation’s historically core values. 

Pray for Needs Across the States

The Supreme Court of Ohio said the state can proceed with an August election over whether it should be harder for the state to amend its constitution by requiring 60 percent of voters to enact new constitutional amendments instead of the current 50 percent plus one. 

The Colorado Supreme Court has denied access to certain riverbeds, disappointing fishermen and others who want access to the state’s waterways. The court ruled there was no state legislation that officially designated the rivers as public property. 

Pray for local jurists as they rule on matters that concern the people of their states. 

Pray for America’s Faith Community

“For us, we felt like the best thing to do in response was, instead of maybe making a statement condemning or anything like that, would be just to instead try to show what we do support, as opposed to maybe what we don’t. And that is Jesus. So to make Christian Faith Day our response is what we felt like was the best decision.“ – Clayton Kershaw, pitcher for Los Angeles Dodgers, in response to Pride Night at the ballfield.
