On the eve of 2022, at a meeting of the Spiritual Board of the All-Ukrainian Council, it was decided to call on all Christian Churches of Ukraine and believers to unite in daily prayers for peace and protection of our country from the escalation of military operations or war during the Christmas Days of January 7-14.

"Join our group in Telegram and Viber to be the first to know important and relevant news for Christians!", says the appeal, shared on the website of the All-Ukrainian Council.

"We call on all Christians and the church to pray intensely for:

- peace and prosperity
- preventing an enemy threat
- for protection from war.

We ask you to pray for these needs in churches, temples, and cathedrals.

Let's pray for this at home with our family, at work with friends and colleagues, because where you and the three of you are, there is the power of the Lord's prayer with them.

Now, more than ever, it is necessary that prayer for our country does not fade away day or night, because only the Lord can solve the challenges that our country faces now, so spread this call and build a prayerful defense of our homeland."
