And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8 NKJV)
Jesus, Your Words are especially resounding this morning as we wake up to learn of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Please, Lord, use this to awaken people to the Truth. We don’t have an endless amount of time to make a decision to follow You. And time is ticking. Please use this to bring revival that others will seek You. And I pray for those in the Ukraine; I pray for our leaders. Give comfort and wisdom accordingly. Open up hearts and minds to You. And for those who already believe in You — help us to be bold to share the gospel; and help us to not fear but remember — None of this was a surprise. God is in control. In Your Name, Amen.
