Arise, Intercessors, And Pray For Ukraine!
President Putin of Russia is dragging his country into a war against Ukraine that is shocking the world. He has become a Pariah to even some of his own countrymen. In his endeavor to recreate the former USSR, his evil schemes against innocent Ukraine are back-firing in public opinion around the world. Many are claiming that Putin, who has isolated himself from others – including advisors – is mentally unstable. His ridiculous claims that Nazis are controlling Ukraine’s government have shocked the world with their absurdities and have even riled up the Russian populace who are savvy enough not to fall for his ridiculous claims.
One Ukrainian, pastor in one of the cities, wrote this several days ago: ” Please tell your people, because of their prayers, God really fights our battles. The rockets disappear in the air without reaching our homes and no one knows where
they go. enemy tanks run out of fuel, Russian troops get lost and ask our locals for food and for directions – that is definitely God because we are dealing with the second strongest army in the world. And this morning Kyiv and other major cities are still free and we in Lviv did not have to run to the basements.”
Another pastor writes: “I have to change all my phone numbers and everything and switch my work and ministry from official to an underground one. Today I was told I am a mark on the Russian KGB list of those who need to be arrested or killed firsthand. We believe it takes 3-5 days for the Russian KGB to come after the regular army and start their search for such people. We know the trucks filled with special forces are gone from Crimea and they are heading to us right now. It’s the third day of the invasion and I think I have one more day or even less to dive into a different life. I am not a trained spy so don’t know how to do so. Plus, I plan to be with the church for our people are highly in need of non-stop service and it was my decision to stay, and I would repeat it once again.
Common everyday Ukrainians are becoming martyrs! Intercessors, Please lift up these prayers daily for the Ukrainian people and their country. Prayer reaches the throne of God!
In Revelation 22:20, Jesus says. ”Surely I am coming soon. “ Amen. Come Lord Jesus!
