Ukraine's Interim President Calls for Prayer, Meanwhile Ukrainian Believers Thank Christians around the World for Interceding

Aimee Herd : Feb 28, 2014  Ruth Kramer – MNN

"Alexander Turchinov (interim president) is a good Christian man. He belongs to one of the largest Baptist churches in Kiev. We are praying, and [we] ask you to pray with us that God will grant wisdom to our brother and to the other elected officials to head the country." - Sergei Gladishko, SGA.

Meanwhile, Ukraine's interim leader, President Oleksandr Turchinov—a Baptist pastor—warned his countrymen against "dangerous signs of separatism" in parts of the country, according to a Mission Network News report.

"At this point, it seems more like it may be more saber rattling than anything else, but the situation remains very fluid," said Turchinov. "We just really have to lift this matter up in prayer. Ukraine is a very unique country, and a lot of places have very strategic interests in it."

Sergei Gladishko, of the Slavic Gospel Association posted an open letter of gratitude from Ukrainian Believers to everyone who has interceded in prayer on behalf of their country:

We are very thankful to you for your prayers and encouragement. We praise God for your faithful partnership in ministry. We are very thankful to God for leading us through a difficult political situation. Now the process of forming a new government has begun. On February 22, the deputy chairman of Ukraine's "Motherland" party, Alexander Turchinov, was appointed as Chairman (or Speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, which is called the Verkhovna Rada). Later in the day, parliament voted to remove President Viktor Yanukovich, declaring him constitutionally unable to carry out his duties. Next, the parliament set May 25 as the date for a special presidential election. In the meantime, Alexander Turchinov was appointed as acting president of Ukraine. He has also been authorized to sign laws adopted during this transitional period. Alexander Turchinov is a good Christian man. He belongs to one of the largest Baptist churches in Kiev. We are praying, and [we] ask you to pray with us that God will grant wisdom to our brother and to the other elected officials to head the country.

Because of the former government, the capital city of Kiev has not had a mayor for two years. May 25 has also been set for a special mayoral election. Please, join us in praying a good mayor to be elected. We are trusting that God will grant us an honest and worthy president, new government, and new mayor.
