This 21-day Prayer Marathon is an opportunity for us to act upon our deep concern for Ukraine and the current situation in Europe. Many of us have sent teams into Ukraine, and are receiving Ukrainian refugees into our churches.
May God stir up our faith, and increase compassion and wisdom among the Spirit Empowered Christians around the globe.
Yours in Christ’s Service
Western European Cabinet
