After speaking [with Vyacheslav Nesteruk, president of the Baptist Union of Ukraine] on a number of points of mutual interest, we discussed specific prayer requests. Brother Nesteruk specifically asked Southern Baptists to pray for the following:
— That there would be no war in Ukraine, but peace.
— That there would be a sense of peace in the hearts of Ukrainian people, rather than a sense of unrest or anxiety.
— For the economic situation, as sanctions imposed by Russia have already begun making life difficult in Ukraine.
— Most of all, that people would be open to the Gospel and actively seek the Gospel during these troubled times.
