“In times of peace, we maintained a positive relationship with brothers and sisters all over the globe. It has become a great encouragement for us to receive support from all corners of the earth,” says the leader of Associated Mennonite Brethren Churches of Ukraine. “Every possible assistance, even the small one, is essential for us, and none of us can express how grateful we are. We give glory to the Lord ceaselessly for your open and sincere hearts.”
Lord God, we pray for peace in Ukraine. We pray for your love and sustaining hand for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine, including the 20 Mennonite Brethren congregations who are providing aid for their neighbours: shelter in church buildings, food and spiritual comfort. We pray too for the people of Russia because as followers of Jesus, we do not regard any human as an enemy.
