It is a complicated thing dealing with war as a follower of Christ. While the author of Ecclesiastes tells us in chapter three that there is a time for everything under heaven, even war, that does not make the realities of loss, death, and violence easier to understand.
And while many of us are detached from the conflict unfolding in Ukraine, there are many connected to us in Christ, and in our movement that are embroiled in it.
Fortunately, God is already working in Ukraine through ministries like Mulberry International and their leader Natasha Reimer. Mulberry International partners with local churches and organizations in Ukraine to provide help to children and families at-risk, as well as refugees and displaced persons.
Natasha provided us with the following update, "Our workers on the front lines, in Mariupol, and in towns along the Eastern Ukrainian border, are serving displaced, scared and hurt people. Our partner churches are receiving dozens of families fleeing the fire of the war."
Please join CDF Capital, and our extended network in praying.
- Pray for the civilians impacted by this conflict and those displaced and fleeing the war.
- Pray for resolution to the conflict and peace to come swiftly.
- Pray for ministries like Mulbery International, and leaders like Natasha Reimer, who actively serve in Ukraine.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”—Matthew 5:43-44
