'Let Your Hearts Not Be Troubled': Regent Univ. Deans Gives Biblical Perspective on Ukraine-Russia Conflict

Randy Mancini 4 Mar 8

"The New Testament says that the prayer of one godly man can have a great effect," he explained. "At one point God says he is going to judge the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. And yet, Abraham interceded. One man intercedes and God reprieves and he saves a family."

"Another example is Jonah the prophet," Bekker added. "He was sent to Ninevah, which is the capital of the Assyrian kingdom, an absolutely corrupt place. And God said I am going to destroy everyone. And this reluctant prophet in his obedience goes to proclaim the Word of the Lord. God saves that city for another 155 years."

"What a moment for us now to pray," he continued.

"The Apostle Paul says that prayer, supplication, intercessions be made for all people, especially those in authority," Bekker added, "so that all people can come to the saving knowledge of Christ. This is how we have to pray so that Russia and the Ukrainian folks can all come to the knowledge of Jesus."
