I was planning to put up another podcast today, I had it all recorded and was working on getting the post up when I came across the video below documenting some of what has happened over the past couple of days in Ukraine.
It broke my heart for Ukraine!
It helped me to see how hopelessly confused people are without Jesus!
It brought me to my knees as I prayed for political peace in Kiev and spiritual peace for all Ukrainians!
All the clips in this video were shot in the last 2 days or so in Kiev, Ukraine.
Although the protests are now nearly 2 months old things are worse than ever. The last few days seem to have been the most violent yet.
People are Looking for a Hero
As the song in the video says, people are looking for a hero, they are looking for someone or something to save them. Many people have lost hope in the government and are demanding change. They believe that a change in government will make things better.
How sad that so many don’t realize that the root of the problem is much deeper than any government can solve. The main problem in Ukraine and in every country is the condition of the hearts of its citizens!
While governments can offer people a degree of protection and stability there is one thing that no human government or politician can do.
They can’t fix man’s heart!
For that we need a hero, we need a hero like Jesus!
A hero who can fix our hearts and will provide the perfect government!
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Ukraine needs your prayers!
Here are a few ways that you can pray for Ukraine during this critical time.
- Pray that Ukraine’s political leaders would make wise decisions.
- Pray for peace on the streets of Kiev.
- Pray that God would use these events to help people see their need for Jesus.
- Pray that the Church would use this time to boldly share the Good News.
- Pray for wisdom and safety of all our Ukrainian brothers and sisters.
