General Brian Peddle, the spiritual leader of The Salvation Army, is calling on the international Salvation Army family to pray for a diplomatic resolution to the conflict unfolding between Russia and Ukraine.

He said, "Our service to the Kingdom of God transcends national identity and crosses international borders without prejudice or discrimination. We have officers serving communities in Russia and Ukraine today, and I ask you to pray for them and for those in mourning as this crisis unfolds. We pray for a diplomatic resolution to this conflict and for peace to return swiftly to avoid further loss of life."

General Peddle acknowledged the strain placed on all Salvation Army officers in each country and thanked them for their service. He said, "We are dismayed by the loss of life and stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ as they continue to serve their communities."

After our bedtime prayers, each of us do a special prayer, usually for someone in need or unwell. We always include all of our officers and fellow Salvationists. Ukraine and Russia will be in our special prayers for peace.
