Pray for Ukraine

Published on: March 4, 2022

YWAM teams inside and outside of Ukraine are urgently providing assistance to people suffering from the war in that nation. Please pray for them and for the situation in Ukraine.

YWAM began its work in Ukraine when the nation was still under Soviet rule. We now have teams in five locations. One of those locations, in Ternopil, has become the main refugee processing center in the city. In Kyiv YWAMers are delivering food to people in need and driving hundreds to safe shelter. Other YWAM teams in countries surrounding Ukraine have been helping refugees. Those countries include Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Moldova, and others.

Topic suggested and written by Al Akimoff and the YWAM Slavic Ministries team.

Please pray with us for Ukraine, for the refugees from Ukraine, and for YWAM’s work to care for the victims of this tragedy. Please join YWAM’s prayer initiative called The Invitation and pray right now and join us on our prayer day, March 10.

Listen to the Letter
  1. Pray for peace and for miracles. Our battle lies not with flesh and blood (Eph 6:2). As the YWAM family, let us pray as the Holy Spirit leads and let’s go deeper than just what the news shows us
  2. Pray for YWAM’s ministry in Ukraine. In Kyiv YWAMers are risking their lives to deliver food to people in need or to drive children or adults to shelter. Our YWAM location in Ternopil is now the main refugee processing center for the city. They need help with food, bedding and other supplies for themselves and the many thousands they are serving. They are working with pastors throughout the city to find space for refugees. The mayor recently called them to say 6,000 more refugees are on their way.
  3. Pray for refugees from Ukraine, including our own YWAMers. Pray for YWAM’s efforts to help these refugees in Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Moldova, Germany, and other nations.
  4. Pray for people in Russia who oppose the invasion. Many are taking bold steps to speak out. This is a challenging time for YWAM’s work in Russia and Belarus
