Prayer for Peace

Pray for peace throughout the world, especially for the Ukrainians at this time.
A Prayer for Peace for not only Ukraine, but the 84 million displaced families around the world.
To whom much is given, much will be required. (Luke 12:48). 
 
The strife in Ukraine has caused us to pause, to pray, and to wonder how we can help the displaced people. We worry if our donations are being used for people and not overheard? We wonder if our donations can make a difference. We feel helpless. But there is a site to help us learn where to give. What is safe.
 
Charity Navigator - https://www.charitynavigator.org – is a source to research trustworthy aid organization.

On the Home page of Charity Navigator, there is a site named “Ukrainian-Russia Crisis” - https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=9366 - and on that site, we can search the kind of aid we want to give (medical, food, housing, etc.). We have choices.
 
No donation is too small. They add up and help to give comfort, strength, and courage.

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
