Prayer and Fasting for Ukraine



Urgent prayer and fasting request from our Dear Suko Family Missionaries in the Ukraine.

It Only Gets Worse!
Unfortunately things didn’t get better for Ukraine, they only got worse! It started with Russia’s annexation of Crimea, then with the taking of key cities in Eastern Ukraine and it continues with an all out war for control of the Donbas area of Ukraine.

Yesterday after weeks of intense fighting the Ukrainian army withdrew its forces from the strategic town of Debaltseve, giving over another key city to the Russian back forces.

The blow to Ukraine is heavy, the outlook is grim, the people are angered, disillusioned and desperate!

Is there hope for Ukrainians?

I believe there is and tomorrow I will share with you in detail about that hope.

In the mean time I want to ask you to do the same thing I asked one year ago.

Please fast and pray for Ukraine!

Christina and I will be fasting and praying on Saturday and we invite you to join us.

You can read the entire article at the Suko Family Blog.

Please consider joining me on February 21, 2015, as I pray and fast with Caleb and Christina Suko.  Together we can come before the throne of God on behalf of the Ukrainian people.



A Time in the Spiritual Disciplines



I have been taking a break while reading through my Bible in four months chronologically (January 1 – April 30, 2015).  During this time I have also been reading a book that is new to me, suggested by the Suko family (missionaries to the Ukraine) entitled, “Spiritual Disciples for the Christian Life” by Donald S. Whitney.  My time spent with God and His Word in this manner has been so wonderful, I just had to take time off from everything else and bask in the moment (for a month!!!).

I want to take time to share this book with you, so keep checking in for my upcoming notes on “Spiritual Disciplines…”.  You should see them soon.

If you would like to know what’s going on in the Ukraine first hand, you can stop by the Suko Family blog.

One more thing I would like to share:  My good friend Victoria at Expectantly Listening has posted a new audio in Preparation for Lent.  I am heading over now to listen for myself – I hope you will join me.

I have missed talking with you all.  I’m looking forward to conversing again.  Please leave a comment and let me know how God has blessed you in the past month.

Happy SimplyLiving!
