Update from UkraineThe following has been received by email from Slavic Gospel Association.
I’m sure for many of us, the situation in Ukraine has been weighing very heavily on our hearts. The whole situation certainly needs our prayers during these days of political struggle.
Pastor Igor Bandura from Odessa, Ukraine sent the following prayer requests to help guide us with our praying.
1. We have a new coalition at the parliament and the parliament now is the only centre of decision making. Our brother in Christ, a member of one of the baptist churches in Kiev was elected as the head of the parliament. During these days he also coordinates the Cabinet of ministers. He also serves as President until the next election on May 25. Please, pray for him and this transitional group of leaders to lead the country through difficult but very important decisions.
2. The country is still divided on the west and the east and the threat of separation is still real. Please, pray for the unity of our people.
3. All our churches are very active praying days and nights to God and we see how He is answering. Many help with medicine, food etc. This is a great time to witness about God's love. We need to experience his reconciling power through Christ Jesus.
4. Pray for God's wisdom for all our pastors as people are looking for many answers about the situation.
