The Ukrainian border is witnessing several Russian troops at its border and the fear of Russia invading the country is rising. However, Christians are making use of prayer and worship which they believe is their own weapon. More so, the country is preparing to have 5 million refugees soon.

In an interview with CBN News, Pastor Kyzmenko Dmytro of New Generation Church in Lviv said, “People are worried but we encourage them to look to Jesus with all of our might because it's only through prayer that we can keep peace in our country.”

Although a greater percentage of the congregation of New Generation Church is from eastern Ukraine, most of them are fleeing the region to escape the violence.

Kateryna Skudan, who escaped from Donetsk, said, “My heart right now is with my relatives I left behind in Donetsk: My mom, my sister and my grandmother but they cannot leave this territory and it breaks me.”

Staff of foreign embassies are being moved to Lviv, near the Polish border. Pastor Timothy Adegbile from Christ Embassy, Ukraine branch, said, "As Christians and as people of God, it's our job and our duty to pray for the whole world because the Lord wants peace.”

Although Christians have been barred from meeting together, many of them still do it secretly. Another pastor told CBN News, "They are forbidden from having church meetings together, but they still do it, secretly, and I think this is what will happen if Russia invades, but the truth is that it is impossible to stop the church of Jesus Christ.”

Talks between United States’ President, Joe Biden and Russia's President, Vladimir Putin have not yielded any positive result. However, the White House has cautioned Russia of major military action.

U.S Secretary of State, Atony Blinken said, "We're in the window when a Russian invasion could start at any time if President Putin so decides. That includes in the coming days.”
