People in Ukraine are turning to Psalm 31 to bring them hope and comfort as they shelter in bunkers in fear of their lives.
The Bible Society has worked in Ukraine for the last 30 years, translating and distributing Bibles. According to the Director of International Ministry, Oldi Morava, “During this particularly difficult time, many people want to find strength and rest, but also comfort in their faith and in God’s Word … They’re reading the Book of Psalms and one that is becoming almost a Psalm for the whole of Ukraine is Psalm 31.”
“Everyone should read it, but read it from the perspective of young people, children and elderly people reading it in shelters, in fear and the anxiety that they’re experiencing, and see what those words actually mean to them.”
Christians across Ukraine have been continuing to distribute Bibles and resources to as many people as possible despite the dangers.

Let us pray.
- Ask the Lord to use this time of fear and uncertainty to draw many to Himself in Ukraine.
- Ask God to advocate on their behalf, so they may resolve these difficulties and, as a result, continue reaching others for Christ and meeting together peacefully for worship.
- Pray the church all over the world may be united in prayer for the situation. Pray for VOM partners, bringing aid to those who have stayed and those who have been forced to flee.
