With the outbreak of war in Ukraine, we see the great need to respond in prayers.

In Isaiah’s vision of the coming Kingdom, he recognises that the Lord “will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many people.” Although we live in a time when the Kingdom of God has not yet come in its fullness, we can still pray for glimpses of this kingdom to be seen at this time.

 

We pray with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters for the intervention of our Heavenly Father and the inbreaking of his Kingdom at this moment in history to restore peace between nations.

Ukraine Appeal

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in your power to do it. — Proverbs 3:27

We affirm and encourage the work of Ukrainian Baptists and those in neighbouring countries in reaching out in the love of Christ to those most affected by the war.

We invite you to be part of our joint response and donate generously to the work of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and of those reaching out in the neighbouring countries.

Your donations will help to purchase food, hygiene items, medicine, generators, gasoline, blankets, pillows, and necessary items for the internally displaced people (IDPs) as well as for those fleeing the country. There are shelters being set up in many Baptist churches in the region and your donations are essential for the local people to run these centres.

OUR RESPONSE

EBF Prayer and Solidarity with Ukraine

The European Baptist Federation (EBF) laments and denounces the Russian attacks on Ukraine early this morning (24 February). We pray unceasingly for the people of Ukraine and cry out for God’s protection and justice for the vulnerable.

 

We affirm and encourage the work of Ukrainian Baptists in reaching out in the love of Christ to those most affected by the conflict. We call upon those in power to use their courage, wisdom, and resources to make peace and to stop war.

 

We as European Baptists stand with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters ready to assist in humanitarian outreach in regions affected by the conflict.

Even in moments dark as these, we hope in God’s promise to teach us His ways and walk in His paths, so that the people of the world,

Shall beat their swords

into plowshares,

and their spears into

pruning hooks;

 

nation shall not lift up sword

against nation,

 

neither shall they learn

war any more.

 

Isaiah 2:4
