Prayer for our teams in Ukraine – November 26

“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side when people rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; then over us would have gone the raging waters.” (Psalm 124:2‭-‬5)

From a missionary in Ukraine:

So, in the past 24 hours, we’ve had electricity for 4 hours at night, then for one hour in the morning, and for almost three hours in the evening. It’s not bad, especially considering the damage that was done to our energy system. All nuclear power plants went into the emergency shutdown mode after yesterday’s attack, so they are slowly restarting their activity now. The Russians targeted the power generating hubs this time, which caused the energy system to go out of control, and it was recovered only in the morning. Now, they are slowly powering up one line after another to avoid a system overload. The situation is serious, but it makes us even more resolved.

Someone shared today that the Russians are training us to become the most resilient, flexible, and optimistic nation. I had a similar thought yesterday. And it’s not like we have superpowers. No, we simply don’t have a choice.

Please pray for the continued grace and strength of God on our teams serving faithfully in Ukraine.
