A Nigerian clergyman, Sunday Adelaja, based in Ukrainesays he could hear bombs and sounds of shells from his home.
Adelaja who is based in Kievs and presides over a large Christian congregation called on Nigerians to pray for Ukraine saying telephone lines have been cut off at the moment.
He wrote on Facebook:
”Hello Dear Friends,
While we still have access to internet here in Ukraine, since no more telephone communication is possible within Ukraine, I will like to use this opportunity to send out this message to our friends and families all over the world.
Yes, it is true. We are under attacks in Ukraine. We couldn’t believe it for a long time that Russian Federation would attack Ukraine, but alas it has happened. Personally I thought this is not possible but I’m right now in the midst of it. Americans were right…
From my house here Kiev I could hear bombs and loud sounds of shelling. We are in the midst of a total war with Russia.
We stand in faith, we stand in God, we put our trust in his promises, while we hope for the best.
We ask the world to pray for Ukraine
Pray for peace
Pray for Russia
Pray for world leaders
Especially for the president of Russia, Ukraine, USA
Meanwhile, we are staying safe at home, praying and believing God for the best.
Thank you so much everyone for your prayers and support
God bless you richly
For The Love Of God, Church And Nation
Dr. Sunday Adelaja”
