Russia has invaded Ukraine. Ordinary citizens in Ukraine are facing militarized ground troops, air strikes and bombings of hospitals, homes, and kindergartens by the Russians. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has asked for help from leaders around the world and is himself standing in the streets alongside his people in opposition to Russian forces which keep pressing toward Kyiv. Hundreds of thousands have been forced to evacuate into Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova, taking little with them and relying upon God’s grace and the kindness of strangers to see them through. Let us stand with them in prayer, seeking safety for all of Ukraine, an end to unprovoked violence, and God’s will for this situation.
We were so encouraged to see many faces (familiar and new!) at Night for Ukraine in April. Working with United for Ukraine, we raised awareness and funds to support a group of medical professionals from Yale whose immediate goal is to provide urgent medical and safety supplies directly into Ukraine.

As of Saturday, March 5:
Please pray with us!
Pray for the country of Ukraine, for Kyiv (the capital), for President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainian leadership, and for the Ukrainian military.
Pray for the message to get out of the truth and reality of the full-scale invasion upon Ukraine’s civilian population as opposed to the disinformation put forth in Russia’s propaganda.
Pray for wisdom for Ukrainian leadership and for ordinary citizens to know best what to do in the face of suffering.
Pray for churches, locally and globally, to be a new light and for the Gospel to be spread.
