I Prayed have prayed
Father, We pray for your hand to move on the earth to prevent war between the U.S. and Russia. We pray there would be no “miscalculations” or “misperceptions” that lead to conflict. Your will be done, Father.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

It goes without saying that we are closer to war with Russia than we have been in many years.

From Fox News. Despite President Biden’s promise not to involve U.S. troops in the war between Russia and Ukraine, a miscalculation from either side during the tense struggle could risk dragging NATO into the conflict.

The fear of a deadly escalation in the conflict has been at the center of the Biden administration’s response in recent days, with the Pentagon last week denying a request from Ukraine to transfer Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to the country’s armed forces through the U.S.’s Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

“The intelligence community has assessed that the transfer of MiG-29s may be mistaken as escalatory and could result in significant Russian reaction that might increase the prospects of a military escalation with NATO,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby told reporters Wednesday. “Therefore, we also assess the MiG-29s to Ukraine to be high-risk.”


But perhaps the largest risk to an escalation of the conflict would be a no-fly zone enforced by NATO, something Heritage Foundation Senior Research Fellow for Defense Policy John Venable told Fox News Digital would be an unlikely risk for NATO to take….

Author and former DIA intelligence officer Rebekah Koffler told Fox News Digital Thursday that a no-fly zone presents the most risk among known scenarios, but currently-unknown actions could inadvertently cause an escalation during the “fog of war….”

Koffler argued that the current conflict in Ukraine is a “proxy war” between the U.S. and Russia that could easily escalate into a “shooting war….”

She noted that Russia is already highly suspicious of the U.S. and even believes that a war between the two powers is “inevitable….”

Some of Russia’s paranoia about the U.S. stems from previous American military operations, Koffler said, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq that toppled the regime of Saddam Hussein….

How are you praying for our country and its leaders?

We listened to your prayer call today and were happy to hear that you were only praying for God to close the skies, rather than the US or NATO declaring a no-fly zone, which would be very risky in escalating the war. I hate to be a nit-picker, but you said Intercessors for Ukraine asked us to pray for a no fly zone, but you are praying for God’s No Fly Zone. But some of the listeners might not have caught the difference and may be praying and telling their friends to pray for a no fly zone. From what I read in the article, it seems like the Ukrainians phrased it as praying for God to protect the skies. Maybe they phrased it differently in another article. We really appreciate your work and leadership and since you are influencing many prayers, I think it might be a good idea to let people know that the president of Ukraine cannot be trusted. He is very much a friend of the deep state globalist agenda, is a pro-gun control person (that’s why he had to give out weapons, the people had none), pro-abortion supporter, and is part of a government full of corruption. He is also a friend of the World Economic Forum (of which Putin is also a member). I think we should concentrate on praying for the people of Ukraine especially our brothers and sisters in the faith. And we should inform people of the complications of the situation and the truth that we can’t trust either side. I was trying to find a good link to one of our favorite news sources who talked about the corruption and evil on both sides of the conflict, but most of them were quite long and talked about other things in the news too and I know your time is limited. The mainstream media is trying to stir people’s emotions with all the footage of people suffering, trying to incite us to want to attack Russia and help Ukraine. But this would just bring about more suffering for not only Ukraine, but also America and all involved. The good news sources we listen to (a lot on Frankspeech.com) pointed out that there are wars going on right now in Ethiopia and because no footage is shown, no one is pressing us to take sides. The same for some other area in the world which I can’t remember. Yes, it’s so sad. But we need to help the people, not the governments. And we need to realize things are not what they often seem. The world wants us to choose between two sides, when neither side is right, and when this will probably lead to WWIII and much more death. They probably need to work out a cease-fire and divide the country – E. Ukraine (friends with Russia; Russian Orthodox) and W. Ukraine (friends with the West; Catholic & Protestant). But the globalists pulling the strings may push towards pulling us into the conflict, with the aim of weakening or destroying America. (Our emphasis on freedom and sovereignty stands in their way). Here is one link you might try to listen to. https://frankspeech.com/video/alex-newman-and-brannon-discuss-highly-orchestrated-events-between-russia-and-ukraine-and Thank you.

    Betty, thank you so much for this thoughtful and detailed comment. I think you correctly caught the phrasing today on the prayer livestream. The article states that a No-fly Zone would be a major escalation. This is a point I personally agree with. No-fly zones are very effective — until someone flies. The first Russian Fighter Jet shot down could be tantamount to quickly becoming WWIII. The next statement in the discussion was that the Intercessors in Ukraine are asking for a No-fly Zone. And of course they are! We can’t begin to imagine the horror, death, and destruction of planes dropping bombs and firing missiles. This is a worthy debate to be had, but it was at that point the conversation shifted toward The Lord, asking Him to create a “No-fly Zone” in the unseen realm which would protect the people on the ground. These conversations are unscripted and we rely on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us, but you’re request for clarity is a good one. Father, my our prayers be of great effect in both the natural and unseen realms as You glorify Jesus in Ukraine and Russia this day.

    I read that the president of Ukraine was elected by the people in 2019. Before that he was an entertainer and not a politician. In order for him to be in on all of the many previous years’ worth of corruption in 3 years, he wouldn’t have time to sleep or govern. I think the corrupt presidents are not in power today. FATHER GOD please educate us to the truth of what is happening in Russia and Ukraine in JESUS NAME! Show us how to pray for the leaders of Russia and Ukraine and all of the citizens of both countries. FATHER GOD please send laborers to all of the leaders and citizens and we decree salvation over these 2 countries! Please end this war immediately in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!

2 Chronicles 20: 21-22(NAS)”When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, “Give thanks to the LORD, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed.”

Praise is our weapon, “for our weapons are not carnal but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punch all disobedience, whenever our obedience is complete.”

Lord, we are Your worshippers. We go out before the army praising You. You route our enemies. You expose their folly. We praise You and declare that America, Russia and Ukraine will be saved. Amen.

2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

It seems to me that Putin has committed enough war crimes to last until the return of Christ and should be taken down and out immediately. Easier said than done I understand but it is my prayer special ops will be given the strategy logistics and all provision safety to carry out the operation like when they did for Saddam Hussein.
If we wait too many lives will be lost and ruined.

With your help I can advance against a troop, with my God I can scale a wall.
-Psalm 18:29
Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But victory belongs to the Lord.

    Partially agreed! The problem is that Putin (no matter how wicked) is not a globalist. Many theorize that this war is intended to drum up support for his removal, at which time he will be replaced with a globalist ruler who will ultimately be far worse. These situations are far more complicated than we know and there are many underlying evil alliances. Zelensky is indeed globalist pretending to be an anti-corruption savior of ‘his’ people.

    A quick way to check the goals and intentions of a leader is to check their membership with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Global Economic Forum (as in Klauss Schwab and the Great Reset). Whether deceived or deceivers, these people are aligned with the goal of bringing us into a one world government and act accordingly, regardless of what they may say.

    Justin Trudeau (also a GEF member and graduate of their school), credits Zelensky for his interest in politics. Putin was on the GEF but all traces were recently expunged. Unfortunately, this is not a good guy/bad guy situation.

Could it be that we only see the tip of the iceberg? Could it be that this is an attempt to cause nations of the world to “bow” to the One-World Government of the U.N. and WEF? Is it a strategically placed smoke-screen to bring nations to their knees at the behest of Agenda 2030? After all, 2030 is just 8 years away. The maneuvering is caused by principalities and powers in very high places, very high. World dominance.
Honestly, this just popped into my little brain and heart recently.
Father, I thank You that You have this all under Your control. It is painful for us to hear of the demise and destruction of a country. Her people running for their lives. Lives lost for what seems to be no real reason, no provocation.
Isaiah 45: 5 “I am the Lord, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; 6 That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other, 7 The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these.
All praise to Thee, Most High God. Jesus won the victory at the cross. All men shall bow before Him and declare that He is LORD. All principalities and powers must bow before Him now. He is LORD. He is LORD. He is risen from the dead and He is LORD.

    I know this was several days ago but the “lights in the sky” above Kyiv (during ground skirmishes) sounds like battles in the heavenlies to me
    In total agreement with you about intercession against the powers and principalities above that entire region.

I’m praying Mark 4:22 for nothing is hidden except to be revealed nor has anything been secret but that it would come to light” .. i’m also praying for all our brothers and sisters in the Lord in Ukraine, Russia, Afghanistan, and that are under oppression and threat of war and open war. I am praying that anyone in authority in the USA who does not love this country and love God is removed. I am praying that God will put righteous godly people in positions of authority in this country in the USA
There is so much lying ,there is so much deceit, but God sees it all, i’m praying psalms two as well. God sees it all and scuffs at the evil doors. Thank you for your leadership at intercessors. I’m praying all of this in the name of Jesus.

I pray that Ukraine is indeed given these planes that they so desperately need. If that results in a war with Russia, so be it. We cannot be held hostage by their threats- after all, we ARE America, in spite of our spineless “president”. Since he is already trying so hard to ruin America, what do we have to lose if we go to war with Russia?

March 15, 2022

We say America will not misfire with Russia. We ask Father for You to keep us in time and that the enemy would not pull us out of Your timing. We ask for supernatural help and for clear communication between Russia and the United States. Thank You Father that You have the whole world in Your hands🙏🏼
