ERSU Seminary lecturer and Pastor in Kyiv writes: “Kiev, Ukraine, war zone. The Beast of the Kremlin continues to exterminate Ukrainians. Just yesterday, I received terrible news. Three of my brothers in Christ and one of my sisters in Christ from Irpen Bible Church, a city in the outskirts of Kiev, were killed by Russians while helping ordinary civilians to evacuate from their city. Another family of ordinary people–a mother, father, and two young children– tried to evacuate, like Hundreds of thousands of other Ukrainian people, and were killed by Putin’s minions.
“Please pray for our civilians, for our brothers and sisters who are in danger right now and are trying to help other people. Please pray for me and other pastors and broadcasters who are trying to help people and are trying to show people the Good News of Jesus Christ among suffering and desperation.”

Praying Psalm 34:18 for all of you– The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. Praying for you and all those who are endeavoring to shine the light of the Gospel into people’s hearts as you aid them in these horrific times.
My heart is with you and I pray throughout the day that the Lord would show His marvelous power in this crisis by doing what only He can do – bringing His peace, provision, and power to bring many to Himself. How I thank Him for your faithfulness and the way you inspire us!
Our Father in heaven:
Hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as in heaven
Give us our today our daily bread
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
Deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, power and glory now and always

It’s too long to type out, but for prayers of help and hope, read Psalm 138-146. It only takes about 10 minutes to read them out loud.
