Russian Pentecostals Call for Prayer and Fasting against the War


by RCCEF Press Service

RCCEF leadership address to all churches

Recent events in Russia and Ukraine have shown how quickly things can change and how fragile the world in which we live can be. Many processes are so intertwined, affecting the destinies of brotherly peoples, that it inevitably echoes in our hearts with pain.

Jesus Christ affirms that “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks”, therefore let our hearts and lips lift up in prayer to the God of peace, mercy and order, crying out according to His will, in the hope of His answers.

We call all the faithful of the Russian Church Christians of the Evangelical Faith Pentecostal to heartfelt prayer with fasting. Because God is looking for those who would stand “in the breach for this earth”. We have something to present with our hearts and lips before His Heaven.

From February 27 to March 31, 2022, we declare a fasting and prayer marathon.

Let us pray and fast:

1. That those on whom peace depends may see these ways and bring peace to the nations. Let us remember that the hearts of kings and rulers are in His hand (Proverbs, ch. 21, v. 1).

2. For the willingness of the churches to sacrificially serve the afflicted.

3. For a deeper understanding of the purpose of the Church of Christ “to be light and salt”.

“My heart says of you, ‘Seek my face’; and I will seek your face, O Lord.”

(Psalm 26, verse 8)

With prayers, Bishop Eduard Grabovenko and members of RCCEF Board
