I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for Pastor Maxim and those who have chosen to stay in Ukraine. Keep them safe, God, and deliver them from the enemy.

IFA had the opportunity to talk to Pastor Maxim Belousov from Intercessors for Ukraine. Pastor Maxim lives and works in Dnipro, in the southwest region of Ukraine.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.

 

We asked Pastor Maxim to describe what is happening today in Ukraine. He said, “Some Ukrainians have left the country and reached places of safety. We praise God that they are safe. The downside for the refugees is the feelings of guilt and the mixed emotions they experience—they have fled but their fellow countrymen are fighting for Ukraine.”

Pastor Maxim’s encouragement for refugees applies to all of us. “Pray for the city you are in. Do what you can to do good where you are. Be a blessing to the nation that has taken you in.”

When people flee, they leave a hole in the community. Pastor Maxim, however, likes to look at it as an opportunity for others to shine. He said, “Some of the best people have left. Some of the best people have stayed.”

One hundred days is very different than how things were at Day 50. Then, the church in Dnipro was like an anthill, full of refugees and volunteers. Now, everyone who wanted to evacuate has evacuated. The church doesn’t see many new people, but it is focused on helping those who have resettled in the area.

Refugees don’t have jobs. The church is able to help meet material needs on a weekly, rather than daily, basis. The needs are much greater, however, in Western Ukraine, which is overloaded with refugees.

The meals provided through One Million Ukraine Meals have been a blessing. In heavily bombed areas, like Kharkiv, cooking is a challenge. Pastor Maxim’s friend lives in a 5-story apartment building in Kharkiv. There is no water, no electricity, and no gas. They cook on an open fire outside the building.

Maxim mentioned that there is a need for personal water filters because the water supply is compromised. IFA was able to connect Maxim with a Christian NGO (non-government organization) that operates in his area. Through their cooperation, those who need water in Ukraine will be assisted.

Miracles from Ukraine

Pastor Maxim prays for what he calls a “personal list of warriors.” He committed to intercede for 245 men and women fighting for Ukraine in the military. One person was wounded twice and sent back to the front after each injury. One is missing in action and another is a prisoner of war. But none of the 245 have died.

Miraculous stories continue to come from the frontlines. Soldiers report being totally surrounded and then inexplicably set free. One man was in a building hit by aircraft bombs. The whole building collapsed but he got out. Refugees who fled Mariupol reported bullets missing them within inches.

A word from Pastor Maxim for Intercessors for America

“Intercessors have to be in unity, agreeing on one thing. When we are in unity, we are like a battering ram to defeat the enemy.

“I sense an urgency in my spirit for unified actions. We must not procrastinate. We cannot afford to wait for this battle to be won by someone else, in someplace else.

“We must attack now to defeat the spirit of communism.”

We pray for Apostle Maxim and International Christian Church daily here at Global Convergence Network. We believe in his work and how he has been faithfully rescuing, sheltering and feeding the people of Ukraine since before the actual Russian Aggressors began their war on February 24th. It was his work that inspired us to make arrangements to pray for Ukraine on the evening of February 23rd to begin the next day. We never knew the war would start the very next day. We’ve been praying daily ever since getting updates from him through Apostle Samuel Rivers here in the United States. It’s a privilege and an honor.

Lord God I pray for the lives of those 245 to be saved and to be alive, as well as all others in Ukraine. Protect the people with your angels surrounding them, let the enemy fail in trying to overtake any territory there. Confound Putin and his army, let him fail miserably. Let your salvation prevail all over this country and situation. Amen

The 245 represents 2 (2nd) term for our current and still ONLY President 45!!!!. He (Trump) God will use to deliver soon. The current Ukraine is owned, controlled and part of Big Brother The Whore of Revelation that is so to be removed and replaced with a Woman leader our Heavenly Father Abba will raise up because of OUR Prayers. Yall are doing great with your prayers. China has plans to do the same with Taiwan but because of our prayers WILL NOT succeed..God bless you all we are soon to see the BILLION MAN Harvest and his Kingdom come which WE as Kings and Priest will Rule and Reign like we were called to do a long time ago. ALL of this is in the WORD..ALL!!!

These people are fighting for their very existence and rightfully so. They never threatened Russia in any way.. Putin is a evil man who wants to see the end of Ukraine as a country. Here in this country we are fighting for our very existence. People here are given freebies and they feel socialism is the answer to all their problems. Socialism leads to communism which will take away all your freedoms, make no mistake about it.. our patriot soldiers fought and spilled their blood so that you can have the freedoms you enjoy today. We are on the brink of losing what’s more important to us and that’s to decide what we need in our very existence and not to be dictated what we should have. WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE ITS TO LATE!! STAY FREE. SOCIALISM IS NOI THE ANSWER🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

“Intercessors have to be in unity, agreeing on one thing. When we are in unity, we are like a battering ram to defeat the enemy.” Satin has already lost and hates the unity of believers. Yes a war on two fronts, but total victory will be the LORD’s.

We ask Father that you would end the war,somehow intervene through your Divine nature!
You are great ,mighty and powerful. We submit Ukraine and Russia to you.
Send the Russian soldiers home, call them by their names and there shall be an increase of light, in the light shall be revelations of what is on your heart, wisdom and knowledge, tell them to drop their weapons and escape.

Have mercy on all soldiers on both sides, speak to them in visions and dreams and in an audible voice, bring conviction , quickly save souls that not man should die and go to hell.
God I don’t want one person to die and go to hell, save souls, quickly save souls. Where they have a heart of stone give them a heart of flesh, Pour out your spirit on all flesh.
In Russia I declare the truth be exposed of Putin’s evil intentions, bring it into your light what the enemy is doing. May the Russian’s eyes be opened, give leaders wisdom how to deal with this situation. Deliver Putin and the Russian leaders from deception, pour out your spirit on them and bring conviction! Awaken hearts to see the light ,, let them know how evil they are and bring conviction, may their soul search for you.
Abba Father, execute justice swiftly , we cry out to you for justice & mercy!
Father end the slaughter of innocent people,
Pharoah, let our people go, Abba Father you are our only hope of deliverance!

    FATHER I PRAY FOR THE EVIL LEADERS IN THE UKRAINE TO BE EXPOSED AND TO REPENT. POUR OUT YOUR SPIRIT ON THEM. I PRAY FOR PUTIN AS YOU USE HIM IN WAYS WE DO NOT SEE TO PURGE UKRAINE OF NAZIS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKERS. I PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE IN BOTH COUNTRIES THAT THEY WILL KNOW JESUS AND THAT THEY WILL BE PROTECTED. EXPOSE THE LIES AND THE EVILS THAT HAVE BEEN IN THE UKRAINE FOR MANY MANY YEARS. UKRAINE IS KNOWN AS THE MOST CORRUPT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. PUT AN END TO THE EVIL, THE CORRUPTION, THE BIOLABS, MONEY LAUNDERING AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE UKRAINE.

What was intended for evil against the people of Ukraine and against the world, may God use for good (Genesis 50:20) O, Lord, You alone can redeem such horrible evil and use it to accomplish Your purposes. Please bring Kingdom fruit from this unlawful, evil invasion of Ukraine. May there be a wave of revival in Ukraine that sweeps around the world. And please strengthen and encourage our brothers and sisters who remain in Ukraine with the assurance that You will never leave them or forsake them. In the powerful Name of Jesus we pray for them. Amen.

I pray Psalms 91: over the Ukrainian people and I know God will answer. Put on Gods armor and stay suited up . This is a life or death fight. God says put on all of my armor I have given you, when the enemy comes you will be able to stand your ground, stand firm and say the words of Truth , I call out to Heaven to protect you, because you have stood, and keep standing because of your Faith in God. God extinguish the flaming arrows of the Evil one and his evil angels that are trying to destroy Ukraine and it’s God fearing people. Father God give them great courage and strength and the covering of your wings to protect them. The son of God his name Jesus says we have God given authority and to pray Gods miracles over the Ukrainian people that are searching for a home and the ones that are standing. Jesus thank you for the food prepared and sent to them, this is Manna from Heaven. God is forever taking care of his family. Romans 16:20 says “ The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. “ Never give up, pray in the Heavenly Language God has given up, Our Father likes direct connections. I pray you remember if you make The Lord your refuge and your shelter no evil will conquer you. God will order his angels to protect you. These are Gods words for you. God loves you. Remove fear: gain Faith, Hope.

Saints: I thank you for initiating prayer for Ukraine again. Please see Worthy News for updates. The Ukraine army has ungone a great defeat this is not time for us to quit praying. I ask and pray that you will continue to enable us to stand in the gap for the church the citizens the soldiers Zelenskyy NATO the Ukraine military the US military and all those serving in the war effort until we “see” the Victory. That all those reading these prayers to be diligent and join this movement and Holy Spirit would tug on hearts who are not reading this to join in so. We can not fail this mission as it is our responsibility – the Lord is depending on us to not give up grow weary or become distracted. No! We must press in regardless of the other issues that need intercession. Worship is the Key. 2 Chronicles 20:22 say that when the people worshiped, the Lord set up ambushments. We declare that the worshipers arise in Ukraine, USA, Poland churches, surrounding nations UK, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Scotland, Germany, Israel et al the remnant everywhere, in the US military, IDF, Ukraine other nations military, (praise God bless and protect strengthen cover them with your blood hide them under Your wings) and that ambushes to overcome the enemy will follow. Receive our Worship and worship movement LORD, may it be a sweet fragrance in Your nostrils accomplishing mighty feats. Thank you in advance with our FAITH and our Worthship. We all need and love You.
Amen.

I pray for God’s justice. I pray that the Angels of the Lord will FIGHT for God’s children. We give our battles to Him. Exodus 14:14. Our enemies will fall into every trap they set for us. They will reap what they sew, as we WILL Rest under our Father’s wings. All the Glory and Honor be to our God. The God of the Nations. The God of our Land. We will see the punishment of our enemies, but it won’t come near us. Psalm 91. God is our refuge, strength, and Help in our moment of trouble. He is our Strong Tower. JESUS IS THE NAME ABOVE all names. He is our Savior. Come Jesus Come, Let Your KINGDOM invade this earth, and send our enemies scattering. They WILL FLEE at Your Name. I SHOUT “JESUS!”

“Blessed is the one who considers the poor!

I am praising and thanking our faithful Father for Pastor Maxim in Ukraine. His comments to IFA are so correct. We are most effective when united in prayer, and we must ask the Lord to defeat the enemy of freedom, the spirit of communism. Let us join him in praying for the citizens of Ukraine who are fighting the physical fight against those who want to breach the sovereignty of their homeland.
Lord,, we want to support this faithful servant of yours. Fill him with Your Spirit and encourage him with wisdom and understanding for the circumstances he is facing.
