Grid of Ukraine

Sketchnoting Prayers for Ukraine – Part 3

This week as we continue our Prayers for Ukraine I thought we might pray the map of Ukraine while we doodle and sketch on it. Ukraine is about the size of Alaska. It’s a big place; about 600,000 square miles.   Some of you are not into or have time to make daily cards.

Here are some ways you can pray the map of Ukraine

  1. Divide the map into 6 vertical lines evenly spaced and then pray for one section every day this week.
  2. Or use the grid map in the handout and pray for a section each day. Doodle the section in while you’re praying. You can get the handout by signing up for my newsletter.  In the welcome email, there will be a link to the members-only page. Look for project 22-1 for the Praying for Ukraine handout.
  3. On another piece of paper, outline the country and then look up what resources are grown/farmed/manufactured in that region and draw an icon of that item on the region of the map.

Write each city noted on the map on a separate card, and pray to a different city each day. Here’s a list of the major cities in Ukraine:
