The Rey actor took to Instagram to share a repost from his wife’s account. The post contained a picture of a rainbow that their daughter Riley drew with crayons. Across the colorful image, the little girl wrote, “We pray for you Ukraine.”

“This drawing not only represents what we are all praying for, but also the fact that my oldest is seeing and learning about the realities of war for the first time,” Jordi Vilasuso included in his caption. “Unfortunately, this world can be unjust and cruel. We stand with the Ukrainian people and hope that peace and justice will prevail!” He ended his thoughts with the hashtag, pray for Ukraine.

Kaitlin also included her own message in her post of the picture the couple’s oldest daughter drew.

“I turned around today to find some new artwork on our refrigerator courtesy of sweet Riley,” explained Kaitlin.

“Tonight, as our hearts continue to absolutely ache for the Ukrainian people and every innocent life affected by this war, we keep praying. We pray for renewed COURAGE for those fighting for their freedom, for SAFETY and a PEACE that surpasses all understanding for those in harm’s way and their loved ones, for WISDOM for our leaders, and for GOOD to be VICTORIOUS over evil- quickly. Lord, hear our prayer.”

She also shared the lyrics to a song from Katy Nichole called In Jesus’ Name (God of Possible).

Hundreds of Instagram accounts hit the like button and replied to Jordi Vilasuso’s uplifting message for the people of Ukraine with many adding words of encouragement of their own.
