Tomorrow, Ukraine elects a new Parliament. Here are some interesting links where you can read the latest news.
There are LOTS more stories on KyivPost.com if you are interested in reading more.
I’m writing to ask you to pray. There are SO MANY candidates. There are SO MANY positions and agendas. I can’t imagine that it will be easy for the citizens of Ukraine to make an informed choice that they can depend on. That makes it a difficult decision for them.
Add to the fact that the entirety of Parliament is going to be elected, there is still a war going on. You may here in the media that troops have left and armored vehicles have left. I won’t comment on all of that except to say that Ukraine is staging an election with the backdrop of war (though it has not been officially declared — in fact, a prevailing opinion is that they have purposely NOT declared war because if that happens, then there can be no election and no hope of stabilizing the government in the near future).
Please pray for the people.
Please pray for those who will be elected tomorrow.
Please pray for the president of Ukraine and his staff.
The police and special units are on high alert this weekend because of the very real threats that would attempt to thwart a fair and free election. Please pray that the election can proceed without conflict and without any acts of violence.
Tomorrow is a big day here.
Blessing the Name of the Lord!
