Friends in Ukraine and Russa: One Podcaster’s Point of View

The personal problem I find with blogging is that I feel like I must share something regarding the tragic events taking place in our world but often times don’t have the words to say. This is the case for the conflict that is currently taking place between Ukraine and Russia.

My heart has felt heavy as I pray for safety and refuge for Ukrainians and also pray for Russians that want nothing to do with this attack on Ukraine, but I have no wisdom or special accreditation to believe that my opinions account for much on this matter. I’m just one of many that feel and think the same.

This evening, I had the chance to listen to my friend Rachel’s newest podcast, where she shares about her family’s experience getting to be in contact with friends in Ukraine and Russia this week, and I appreciated her insight as a result of that communication. I was also drawn to the compassion and concern that she shows for both countries as the citizens of each nation struggle in different ways during this time.

I encourage you to listen to her podcast as you pray for both nations so that you can gain insight and wisdom as you pray. And if you enjoy this podcast, then check out her others too! Rachel has a lot of godly wisdom, insight, and encouragement to offer.

God bless you as you seek Him this week!

  1. I share your sentiment. My heart hurts for the people in Ukraine but I do not feel I am in position to say anything about it other than pray for them in sincerity and with consistency.
    Will check out your friends podcast.
    Thank you Colleen for sharing this.

  2. Rachel has well expressed what much of the heartbreak many of us are feeling and praying. We ask for peace – that the guilty and violent will be held back and turned away, but not evil returned on others who are innocent. May God give protection, wisdom, and compassion.
