"Just like in any war in history, in Ukraine, children suffered the most. No matter which country spent the largest amount of money to finance this war, children in Ukraine paid the highest price. The church can not effort to stand on the side while millions of Ukrainian Children are suffering because of this war. I believe in the power of prayer. May God uses each one of us to be the answer for our prayers for the people of Ukraine.”

"We condemn in the strongest terms the Russian attack on Ukraine and appeal for an end to this war and call for an unconditional ceasefire. The mounting loss of lives and the escalating suffering of the most vulnerable is heartbreaking as is the plight of the millions of internally displaced people who have been forced to leave their homes just to save their lives. War always exacts a very heavy human cost. We pray that the Church, the international community, and all people of goodwill shall come to the aid of the suffering at this time as well as for the restoration of peace. We continue to pray for the nations of Ukraine and Russia that the issues will be resolved by dialogue which is the only way forward."

The war between Russia and Ukraine is the fact that the whole creation of God is mourning and suffering. By the way, we as the people of God are willing to participate in God's work of restoration and reconciliation. I appreciate your leadership to convene the Asian evangelical leaders to pray together and provide things they urgently need. Here is the prayer of Korean churches and Christians for the people of Ukraine and others. Most of the Korean missionaries to Ukraine have been involved in the relief ministry for the Ukrainians and the refuge. The Korean churches also help the Ukrainians as much as they can.

Heavenly Father, you are the one who creates the world and redeems the broken world and brings peace, reconciliation and divine healing. Amid the suffering and death of innocent people caused by the war in Ukraine, all Korean Christians and churches ask for divine intervention to cease the war and bring peace and restoration to the people and land of Ukraine. We pray you to give us wisdom and courage to take part in helping the people and the refugees in the devastated land. We pray in the name of Jesus.

We pray for this war to end as soon as possible and are willing to do our part for peace to come, the comfort of the wounded, and the restoration of order!”

As advocates for world peace, we ask the global Body of Christ to pray imprecatory prayers against Putin (like Ps. 109) as we condemn Russia’s unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine. He launched an attack on freedom, democracy and truth in disregard of the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Let's pray that Putin will stop this war and withdraw his troops immediately. May God grant wisdom to world leaders to respond generously in support of the Ukrainians. May Christ's peace prevail in our world. Amen.
