How to Pray for Ukraine (November, 2023)

FEBCFEBC Blog 12 Comments

FEBC broadcasters and staff are spread out across Ukraine. Some have returned to larger cities, but all are enduring much for the sake of the Gospel.  Many of our male broadcasters have been called to serve in the military, and several are stationed around the country on the frontlines as chaplains. They are separated from their families and only have sporadic contact with them.   

Despite these struggles, our Ukrainian team continues to broadcast words of encouragement and hope from God’s Word. Our broadcasters and staff are connecting with people, praying with listeners, and showing the love of Jesus Christ daily.  

Here are some recent requests from our Ukrainian team. Please join us in praying for: 


Many soldiers are having serious struggles, like Danylo, who called FEBC because he was feeling suicidal. He followed Buddhism but agreed to be prayed for. After the prayer, he said, “Amen,” and broke down crying. Please pray for many more soldiers to turn to Christ. The death toll from the war is alarmingly high. 

New Listeners

Many new listeners in Ukraine, like Ivan, are facing an immense amount of stress. “My city suffered a lot during the war, it barely still exists,” he said. “My wife just told me she wants a divorce; my mother died while she was abroad… and now I take care of my father, who is ill.” Ivan had never read the Bible before. “I don’t even know if God exists,” he said. When FEBC’s Christian counselor prayed with him, Ivan burst into tears. “Thank you so much!” Please pray for listeners like Ivan, who are turning to the Lord as they face extreme trials in their lives. 

 More and more people are responding from the Ivano-Frankivsk area, where our newest station was opened just a few months ago. There are thousands of in-country refugees there who receive hope through FEBC broadcasts as well as one-on-one counseling.  

God’s Protection

Places like Zaporizhzhia, one of Ukraine’s largest cities, was hit by more missile attacks in recent months. God provided for FEBC Ukraine to open a radio station there during wartime, and it has become one of the most responsive regions. The people there are under constant fear due to the nearby nuclear powerplant which is under Russian control. 

In another part of the country, a few of our broadcasters’ buildings were recently bombed. Everyone is safe for now, but they are still reeling with shocked emotions. Others in the same area lost close friends. There was another bombing in Kramatorsk where friends of our team suffered. 

FEBC Staff  

Our Ukranian staff are directly serving those afflicted by the ongoing war and the flood disaster from several months ago near Kherson. Others are distributing radios so that people can listen to the broadcasts. Our counselors are answering many calls coming from disaster areas.  

Please continue to pray for our Ukrainian broadcasters who are sharing the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ, and thousands are responding. The work is exhausting, and funding to continue and expand is needed right now.

      Thank you for praying for each and every one of these requests, Carmen. Our team in Ukraine is so appreciative of all the prayer coming from the U.S. and around the world.

  3. Thank you for making us aware of these current needs, and successes–good to hear of the successes, people turning to the LORD. I get the monthly paper prayer guide, and am thankful for it as a reminder of what is happening in that region of the world and the blessing that FEBC radio and ministers are to those who live there. May God be with you and may He be glorified bringing many sons and daughters to glory.

      Thank you for this, Kevin. It is encouraging to us and the Ukraine team to know supporters are still praying and lifting up the team during the war.
