Newspaper headline "Pray for Kyiv"

James Shepley saw the Daily Mail front page headline, "Pray for Kyiv" and wrote asking me, "Is there something the MCEA should do? I guess one is to encourage people to pray for Kyiv and the people of Ukraine."

My response was, "The church I currently lead is praying today especially." But I was left admitting, "It is difficult to know what to organise beyond that."

Let me here put out a challenge and few ideas for consideration.

  • Can we get a message out to all our connections to be praying?
  • We can pray for peace and for protection of the innocent.
  • We can pray for a swift resolution to the conflict.

We will need more wisdom on how to help as this crisis unfolds - we can pray for that.

In the meantime, do we have a large Ukrainian community locally? If so, how might we support them?

Please send your thoughts and responses to me, Dave Wellington

God bless you!
