Acting Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs John Bass is in Ukraine.

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bridget Brink, welcomed the acting under secretary to Kyiv on Friday “to meet with Government of Ukraine counterparts and other partners to reiterate our unwavering commitment to Ukraine in its fight against Russia’s illegal aggression.“

Previously the Under Secretary of State for Management, Bass became acting under secretary for Political Affairs after Victoria Nuland retired from the position in the spring of this year. Earlier in his career in the State Department, he served as the U.S. ambassador to the nation of Georgia, then Turkey, and later Afghanistan.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the acting undersecretary and ambassador to seek God’s direction as they engage in discussions regarding the war in Ukraine.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Blinken and U.S. ambassadors as they discuss global affairs with foreign ministers and representatives.
  • For the Lord to work out His purposes in and through the United States and those in positions of authority.
