'The War is Real, We are Praying at Home,' Nigerian Pastor Speaks from Ukraine

Pastor Adelaja

A Nigerian pastor based in Ukraine, Sunday Adelaja, has explained that the war looming in Ukraine is real and he can hear loud sounds of bomb from his home in Kiev. Adelaja, who pastors Christ Embassy Church, made a post on his Instagram page on Thursday, the first day of the attack on Ukraine by Russia.

He said, “While we still have access to the internet here in Ukraine, since no more telephone communication is possible within Ukraine, I will like to use this opportunity to send out this message to our friends and families all over the world.

“Yes, it is true. We are under attack in Ukraine. We couldn’t believe it for a long time that the Russian Federation would attack Ukraine, but alas it happened. Personally, I thought this is not possible but I am right now in the midst of it. Americans were right.

“From my house here Kiev, I could hear bombs and loud sounds of shelling. We are in the midst of a total war in Russia. We stand in faith, we stand in God, we put our trust in his promises, while we hope for the best.

“We ask the world to pray for Ukraine. Pray for peace. Pray for Russia. Pray for world leaders, especially for the presidents of Russia, Ukraine, USA. Meanwhile, we are staying safe at home, praying and believing in God for the best.”

His post has generated some comments so far. Olusola Ibrahim said, “May the peace of God Almighty take absolute control over Russia and Ukraine. All over, voices are echoing ‘say no to war.’ Let there be love and peace from God.”

Don Kayeliot commented, “May God almighty protect Ukraine in the hands of the Russian army.” Michael Okoye reacted, “God will surely change the plans of Russian and He will surely protect His people in Jesus name.”
