On 18 June David held a National Day of Prayer for Ukraine in Kiev. Supported by the Ukraine Bible Society, Greek Catholics, the Baptist Union, two Pentecostal Unions, Charismatic and Independent Unions, and the Senior Rabbi of the Messianic Congregation in Ukraine, this was the first time that all these unions have come together in unity to call on God to restore their broken and divided nation. 

The three-hour event was broadcast live by CNL TV worldwide, by two European Christian TV channels and one Ukrainian national radio channel reaching Russian-speaking peoples in Ukraine, Russia and in Europe, and live news coverage was taken by 4 State TV channels. In addition, churches gathered together in halls all over the nation to join in the prayer via live uplink.

David called on God to remove the tanks from Ukraine territory, stop the fighting and bring peace into every heart. He told how God has always answered his prayers in times of crisis: when he was healed of cancer twice, and when he was delivered from a communist prison in the hardest days of the Cold War. Then he told how the King George VI called Britain to prayer seven times in World War II, and how God delivered the nation every time by a miracle.

The Day of Prayer for Ukraine was opened by the President of the Ukraine Bible Society (former President of the Baptist Union), Dr Commendant. Other participants in the public prayer were a representative of the Greek Catholics, Bishops from the Baptist Unions, the two biggest Pentecostal Unions, Charismatic and Independent Unions and the Senior Rabbi of the Messianic Congregation in Ukraine.

Between them, the Church leaders asked God for forgiveness for the broken foundations of their society (they had told us beforehand, 'If we as a nation were right before God, we would not have blood shed on our soil'). They called on God to help them rebuild their nation on Biblical principles, in every sphere of life, so that peace can be restored to their land and to the hearts of the people. The day concluded with passionate, heart-felt prayer for the Russian nation.

After the Russian annexing of Crimea in March 2014, war broke out in eastern Ukraine the following month, April 2014, when Russian-backed separatists seized control of a number of towns and declared independence. That summer the Ukrainian army recaptured the rebel stronghold of Slavyansk and moved to encircle Donetsk, the defacto separatist capital. Following two decisive Russian military interventions which effectively reversed Ukrainian gains, a peace agreement was signed in Minsk in February 2015. The effect of this agreement has been to slow, rather than end the war; the killings continue to this day.

I have met with God. I know Him. I have seen the fire. More than that, the fire is in me, burning in my soul. There is a power that transforms us.
