Prayer Alert: Ukraine

Pray with us for the people of Ukraine and Bible ministry within the country

Since 2014, Ukraine has been entrenched in a conflict that has left thousands of people dead and more than one million people displaced. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled the country.

Yet in the midst of turmoil, the Deputy General Secretary of the Ukrainian Bible Society Anatoliy Raychynets sees hope. In November 2016 he wrote this update:

“It is a time of unprecedented opportunities to bring the Word of God to the wounded, disappointed, frightened, lost and despaired hearts of hundreds of thousands of our country’s inhabitants.”

Raychynets is not the only one who recognizes the need for the healing power of God’s Word; a government official recently asked the Bible Society for 800 Bibles for Ukrainian officers as well as children’s Bibles for their kids. The desire to get Bibles into the hands and hearts of the people is great. This is why we need your prayers.

Join us in praying that God will heal the nation of Ukraine through his Word.


PRAY FOR:

  • Safe distribution of Bibles to the people by the Ukrainian Bible Society and local churches.
  • Ukrainians to encounter God’s healing, comfort, love and peace found in the pages of Scripture and that churches will bring the message of Jesus to those in need.
  • The conflict in Ukraine to end, for God’s reconciliation and peace to overcome all hatred, and for a unified church and government to emerge.
