“In my trouble I cried to the Lord… Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, From a deceitful tongue… I am for peace, but when I speak, They are for war.” – Psalm 120:1-7
Last week, Russia launched the largest war in Europe since World War II by invading the nation of Ukraine.
Though greatly outnumbered and outgunned, the Ukrainian military and citizens took up arms to defend their country.
In the face of a threat to their very existence, stories of heroism began to emerge. These stories included 13 defiant soldiers, charged with defending a 46-acre island, who refused to surrender to a Russian warship, then were killed when bombarded by the sea and air. It also included a Marine who sacrificed his life to blow up a bridge, slowing the advance of Russian military vehicles.
The days, weeks, months, and possibly years ahead will be difficult ones for the Ukrainian people as Russian forces occupy their nation.
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, be with our brothers and sisters in Ukraine as they fight for freedom. Help us not to take our freedom for granted. May we understand that the opportunity we have to live in peace and urge our representatives to enact God-honoring public policy is a blessing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
