Prayer news

“Please encourage everyone to continue in prayer,” says one of our colleagues in Kyiv.

We continue to pray for CMS people in mission in Ukraine, who have been sharing the love of Jesus in tense and fearful times. Will you please join us in praying:

  • For more de-escalation and peace to prevail
  • For many churches in Ukraine who are joining together in regular prayer and fasting. From our partner: “The church is convinced that this is a time for a harvest and that they must stand against any feeling of fear. Pray that church members would have confidence to trust God and not feel fear and to share the Gospel. Pray that many at this time of uncertainty will follow Jesus.”
  • For safety and continued wisdom for CMS people in mission: Anya, Valery and Alison
