I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that you would strengthen our country and our allies in the face of potential conflict with Russia. Give our leaders wisdom and courage.

While our previous leader laughed at Russia, Putin strengthened his country in any way he could. Russia is now strong enough to challenge the world. We must pray that our country does not fall behind.

From FAI Mission. On February 24th, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. To many, this was a shocking development and an unthinkable escalation….

These events in and of themselves show a consistent trend of Putin’s clinging to countries historically under the Russian sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. But in the subsequent years since the annexation of Crimea, Russia has been steadily building power in another region entirely: the Middle East.

But why has Russia turned its sights to the Middle East at a time when American foreign policy has shifted distinctly eastward to China? What are Putin’s ambitions in the region, and how has that fueled the current crisis in Ukraine?

TAKING GROUND

Russian recovery in the wake of the Soviet collapse was slow. Even now, the Russian economy produces a mere 3 percent of the global GDP. In the 2012 presidential debates, it is perhaps understandable that Obama ridiculed Romney for stating that the United State’s number one geopolitical foe was Russia, saying, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back…the Cold War has been over for twenty years.” When giving a speech later in response to the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, President Obama would also call Russia a mere “regional power” that was “weak.”

The “American moment” from the 90s to the mid-2010s where the United States enjoyed being a lone superpower, fed a complacency that led to a profound underestimation of the once and potentially future Soviet Union. In Putin’s first term in the Russian presidency, strong cooperation marked American-Russian relations. However, when Putin came back for his second round as president, he implemented a different and more assertive Russian foreign policy. Putin did not suffer from the same complacency that his American counterparts did. After victories in Chechnya, Georgia, and Crimea, he was ready to test and build new Russian power in the upheaval of the Arab Spring….

THE GREAT SYRIAN SHIFT

While suspecting that regional instability was the result of American machinations, Western de-prioritization of the Middle East left openings for Russian business investments. American investments and interventions often came with human rights and democratic strings attached, but the Russians were not so high-minded. They could offer themselves as alternative business brokers who didn’t make partners jump through ideological hoops like the Americans often did. Not only did this open up a new market for Russian arms sales and energy cooperation, but it also made Russia less dependent on Western markets, lessening the impact of sanctions.

But more than anything, the Russians wanted to present themselves as reliable and perhaps, superior allies compared to Americans. And so, after many years of supporting the Assad family, the Russians joined the Syrian Civil War in 2015 and reversed what might have been a successful overthrow of the regime. The US and the anti-ISIS coalition were already in Syria fighting ISIS, and Israel was fighting Iranian proxy militias. They were forced to open deconfliction channels to avoid dangerous incidents in the skies, lessening Russian isolation on the international level. The Syrian government, which had been fighting a losing war on several fronts, took back control of 70-80 percent of the country, thanks mainly to Russian airpower. Damascus gave Russia two bases in Syria for the next half-century, cementing Russian presence in the region.

Though the war in Syria was rife with human rights abuses and war crimes, Russia’s involvement has been overwhelmingly positive for its global image as a powerful actor. Many on the world stage thought that entering the war in Syria would mean becoming embroiled in yet another endless quagmire on the level of Iraq or Afghanistan. Still, Russia emerged from Syria transformed as a world power to be reckoned with and a new kingmaker in the region.

After Russia’s success in Syria, Moscow looked for new areas for low-cost, high-reward interventions in the Middle East, and Libya fit the bill….

FUEL FOR A NEO-SOVIET UNION

After the relative military success of its Syrian and Libyan interventions, Russia proved to be an ally willing to apply strong power to keep its partner in control. It has successfully brokered many arms and energy deals and postured itself as an attractive alternative to those disaffected by pro-Western forces across the region. It has soldiers fighting in actual theaters of conflict and gaining battle experience. It worked at building partnerships that would insulate it from Western sanctions.

So, after the general chaos that accompanied the global Coronavirus pandemic in the early 2020s, Putin saw the opportunity to finish what he had begun in the 2000s—an expansion of Russian influence and power, the halting and reversing of NATO’s eastward expansion, and ultimately the realization of a Neo-Soviet reabsorption of Ukraine….

If the Russian tactics in Syria are anything to go by, Ukraine is in for a long and painful war. The West would do well to reassess how seriously it takes both its presence and influence (or lack thereof) in the Middle East as well as its estimation of Putin’s expansionist ambitions. By miscalculating the importance of both, we have set the stage for the tragedies we see today both across the Middle East and in Ukraine, and for future devastations across the globe.

It saddens my heart to see such confusion and division in the body of Christ over this Ukraine/Russia war. Some are siding with Ukraine and praying for her leaders and countrymen, others for Russia’s leaders and her countrymen. I have seen brothers and sisters in Christ in disagreement with each other regarding this invasion and even on this prayer thread there is dissension and disagreement.

I do believe as intercessors we are called to rise above our fleshly thoughts and opinions, and yes, we do all have them, seeking our Father’s will in every situation. No one here knows everything to know about Ukraine or Russia, no one here knows a man’s heart, only God does. Yes, we are known by our fruit, but I have been seeing some fruit in believers that looks pretty rotten regarding this war.

PLEASE, let’s set aside all our opinions and seek our Father’s will. He has a plan; He knows all hearts involved. Our role is to pray for His will to come forth and then to show His love so that others will “see” our Father and want what we have…which is peace (that passes all understanding) in the midst of the storm.

Father, we come together and ask for you to forgive us of our sin, thinking we know what needs to be done or how to do it, who is good and who is evil. Instead, we move in the opposite spirit of contention and disagreement, choosing Holy Spirit wisdom and peace, love, and self-control. Reveal and show us how to pray strategies from Heaven that agree with Your divine plan. Let us come together in agreement that we (actually all men) NEED You in the midst of our day, our lives, this world, and this war. Surround and protect all the people in both countries, revealing Yourself in all this evilness. Be their Jehovah Jireh for every need. Let the light of Jesus be seen in the Believers in these countries so that, mingled with our prayers, many will come to know You. We humbly submit to You, Jesus’ name, amen.

    Amen Debbie!!!
    This squabbling is exactly what Jesus warned about in Matthew 24.
    Matthew 24:4 (MSG)
    Jesus said, “Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, ‘I am Christ, the Messiah.’ They will deceive a lot of people. When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don’t panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places. This is nothing compared to what is coming.”

    Matthew 24:9 (MSG)
    “They are going to throw you to the wolves and kill you, everyone hating you because you carry my name. And then, going from bad to worse, it will be dog-eat-dog, everyone at each other’s throat, everyone hating each other.”
    IFAPray is the most effective weapon against satan in many years. The tools that have been released over the past year are miraculous. The victories are outstanding. I have personally seen prayers answered from local level to National to International. The ability to actually have your own prayer submitted to the Supreme Court in an Amicus Brief is unheard of in any other Nation. Imagine the rejoicing in Heaven and the despair in hell when Roe vs Wade comes tumbling down!!!
    We must stop the bickering. Keep your eyes on Jesus.
    Shalom, Shalom

Shame on you for starting this article off with a political jab at Donald Trump. If you really paid attention to what was happening you would know that Putin was intimadated by President Trump and now he is not in the least intimadated by Biden….this is why he is now invading Ukraine. I can’t stand it when so called “religious” zealots like the IFA use politics and prayers to push their views. The trouble in the world is YOU and people like you that believe that the Democratic party is good for America and there is no corruption amongst their ranks. If the IFA is truly about “prayer” then why is this article all about politics? When I pray to our Lord and Savior I never mention politics. He knows who is good and evil. You may not like President Trump but he is just a man, a man who loves his country and a man who cares about the American people. Satan has infiltrated the socialistic democratic party and if you stand with them then you too are part of the evil.

    There was no mention of derogatory regarding Trump. The article specifically mentioned Obama, as the previous president, who downplayed and ignored Putin’s rising to power.

who is the article referring to as “our previous leader”…Trump? why not just state the name clearly so no one wonders? Trump did alot of good for America and for keeping peace in the USA during his term but we know he wasnt perfect as no one is. It is okay to mention his name and mistakes. many here are Trump supporters but i feel most are here to pray not debate the fact Trump is human like the rest of us.

    This article says that the previous leader was Obama under subtitle TAKING GROUND, first paragraph, in the article above.
    Dear Lord Jesus, you are Sovereign. We are dismayed to what is happening in Ukraine and we cry out to you to bring peace back in this country where there are many of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Our hearts go out to them. Last night we went to pray in our city square with other Christians in the community. The prayer was organized by the pastors of different churches in our community. Thank you Lord that you give us the confidence that you heard our prayers. To YOU be honor, glory and victory. Amen!

    OBAMA is the individual referred to in the article. And that is an absolutely correct statement. Forget about what Obama said – just review his stance and policies towards Russia. Obama didn’t think they mattered based on his policies and unfortunately, with the flunkies he assigned to deal with and oversee policies.
    It’s NOT Trump the article is referring to. The Trump administration had a completely different “pro-active” approach to Putin. It amazes me that there are still many people who think Obama was a good president. They obviously didn’t do research when he was president. Foreign policy matters often have a delayed effect that can occur. (negative or positive). Such was the “planned policies” of Mr. Obama. His soft touch approach resulted in much of the fallout we see now.

Father, i come humbly, acknowledging i need your Holy Spirit to intercede through me, Ukraine has experienced upheavel and instability for years now, and only you have the perfect wisdom, knowledge. and plans as to how to pray this nation through to stability and revival and we pray you would work with your intecessors to pray this nation through. the prophecies in your word are inevitable and whether or not the relationship between Putin and China will usher in further conflict with Taiwan or eventually WWW3, is unknown at this point. war was present in heaven first due to pride, it seems war here on earth is often due to pride and fear. I believe Putin is deceived by pride and fear, and that overall spiritual deception also has a place and is so rampant in our world. Father as Putin huddles his own family in their underground shelter, may you weigh heavy on his conscience regarding the havoc and instablity and death he has caused to countless other families, who are now refugees without the comforts of their own homes and may you do a work in his heart to reconsider and choose peace, compassion, compromise. be present in negotiatiins and turn the hearts and minds present toward workable solutions for lasting peace. Father somehow Putin feels justified and right in doing this and we may never understand his reasons, but we ask you to have mercy on his soul, heal his mind, heart, and spirit to repent and cry out to you, as well as the people and leaders of Ukraine and Russia, and all the nations leaders, to give all wisdom and discernment on how to help descalate this conflict and return people to their homes and rebuild, not make war linger or get wose. Destruction and Loss has already been considerable but this conflict can be overcome by people who will pray your will through with the help of your spirit, Putin and those who are with him can be turned around and moved to relent. Zelensky can be moved to negotiate for the sake of his nation.Help him do so. Father may your will be done in each and everyone involved and in the world in general right now as we view and hear about these terrible autrocities, may you use it to wake us all up and out of spiritual slumber and rebellion, and use it to produce good somehow, to produce sincere worldwide crying out to you and preparing for the return of Christ, may you meet all who call out to you in such a way as to open their eyes and hearts to you for help for true peace and love. war and misfortune and suffering has a way of turning people to prayer and as they do meet them there, guide them further to your self and to seek you in your word one on one in true relationship instead of religion as that is our only hope for true peace and love. In Jeaus name we pray and thank you that despite how it seems you are very present in ukraine and in the lives suffering ukrainians, and are alao striving with world leaders to heae your voice and follow your leading. thank you for answering our prayers

Holy Lord,
We praise You for Your mighty “pulling down of strongholds” throughout history. Now, we ask You to supernaturally frustrate Putin’s plans for expansion and confusion in his thinking, for disunity within his armed forces and political advisors, for passive aggression among civilians, “acts of nature” to thwart planned aggression and, of course, Your own ways of preventing evil plans like Putin’s from becoming reality. Thank You for Your Heavenly Army which is ready to act to carry our Your will. We praise You and glorify Your holy name.

President Trump laughed at Putin? He made Putin think twice about challenging the US on any front. Our current illegal “President” is weak and not any kind of threat, except to children of course. Our corrupt President is a bumbling brain-dead fool who is still taking orders from Obama, our other illegal and satanic president. I am canceling my subscription after posting this rebuttal.

How is it that few are able to discern what God is doing with Russia, Putin and the Ukraine?! Do you not know that Putin saw what was happening with the people who are under the influence of satan with an insatiable appetite to destroy? Putin was greatly relieved that President Trump knew about this too. Putin is taking out their deeply rooted assets, not Ukraine’s innocent population! Choose to believe what God is saying which is freedom for the captives instead of the desperate reports of the propaganda machine. The enemy has assets in Ukraine that will make your hair stand on end… the greatest amount of money laundering and human trafficking in Europe, bio labs like China, weaponry stockpiles, wicked neo nazi’s controlling all levels of government, George Soros in control with owning much of Ukraine. None of this is by accident, none of this is about Putin’s insatiable need for control… he took out most of the bio labs the first day. We need to pray for the church in Russia and Ukraine. See this from Heaven’s perspective and stop coming up against God’s will.

If Russia is so crazy and bold to come against God’s Heavenly Hosts, it is not hard to believe that the countries and leaders of this world are nothing to them.

Honestly just speaking from what I’ve heard but the Brandon Admin. Is working with Russia and China to reinstate the Iran Nuclear deal from the Obama Admin. I pray that this does not happen but I also pray that God will not allow it because Pres. Trump had already broke that deal off already. I pray that God will wake our allies and leaders up and that God that we can prevent this. I’m also thankful for those in congress who are fighting for our energy independence. I pray that God will help in the efforts of helping us to see that natural gas is actually not a threat to our climate and that actually the lithium ion on the batteries in the electric cars, and solar panels the materials with in the panels are actually more harmful for the environment, wind mills are harmful to wild life. I that God will help climate change activist actually seek truth and see that like our bodies this world has was of healing it self and that if these activist are really concerned for them to explore horticulture and plant trees. I’ve always felt like if a tree is cut then as care takers of the world really it’s our duty to replant. Not blame natural resources. Now we are relying on Russia and foreign oil and we see why America is rich with natural oil. We were ment to be a supplier not be supplied. After all we are to be good stewards of the free world. Father I thank you for the truth and I pray that others will seek you more then falling for indoctrination or what the Establishment says. In Jesus name I pray Amen

    When we pray, we need to see all sides of a conflict. When you consider the Bible predictions, the powers that be use political means which God uses to fulfill His purposes. Viewing political events with a Biblical view is the wise way to understand how to pray.

Precious Heavenly Father, I come to the great throne on behalf of the many people of Ukraine that are being caught in a warzone that is disrupting their existence and the children that have no safe place to go. This beautiful country with the finest architectural delights. They need “Unfair Advantage” from you to be rid of this pest and his war machine. I have no idea how or what you will do, but please do it quickly. And Lord, cause Mr. Biden to STOP buying Russian oil at $50 million a day and open up our nation’s drilling that he shut off! Stop Mr. Biden from interfering as he only shows weakness when he speaks. Even Lord, give this nation back to President Trump.
Move your Mighty Hand in Ukraine’s behalf. I don’t know what or how. I just ask you do it. Save this beautiful country and the many followers that abide here! In Jesus Name, I ask, believing you’ll do it. Amen.

Why are communist-prone nations continually trying to bully their way onto other peoples? It appears they are run by bully personalities who want to control others. Consider the present situations in Venezuela, North Korea, Communist China, Cuba and maybe Ukraine. Why can’t we all just work together assisting to try to make the whole world better! We cannot as long as there are fascist upstarts. Fascism is supported by woke, antifa, Nazi and communist adherents to name a few. Adolf Hitler claimed to have been a Christian. Vladimir Putin does the same. “By their fruits you shall know them.” *Thanks Toni K. for your post below.

I think the article reveals the cunningness of an evil man, who wants more power at the cost of innocent people. I will keep my eyes on Jesus and pray for the salvation of this man. Only God can change the evil heart of a man, I think of President Putin as a Nebuchadnezzar whose sanity was restored as he praised the Most High God. May the God of our salvation bring him to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, for ” those who walk in pride He is able to humble”. He is God and sovereign over all.

WHO is the author of this article? I am amazed that IFA, who I thought was a trustworthy source, published this! It makes me wonder. Because immediately after Jan 6th, Dave Kubal wrote about his experience on the grounds and was quick to sound like the “Trump insurrection” narrative that we hear from mainstream media.

The ukrainian government is as corrupt as this fraudulent regime in DC. When you have Soros & his son, the WEF, the Clinton’s, Marina Abramovic, & Trudeau supporting Ukraine you gotta know something is not right! I don’t believe Putin is the evil guy here. I believe these evil globalists are, they backed him in a spot that he’s been warning the US, the EU, & Nato about for 15 years to keep off his border. I’m praying for the protection of God’s people & the innocent in Both countries- Russia & Ukraine. I’m praying the real evil culprits will be exposed & brought to justice & that we don’t go to war!

I think it would serve your purpose better to leave political commentary out of your lead-in lines. To say that President Trump laughed at Putin implies that he did not take Putin seriously. That’s a far cry from the truth and belittles our former President. Shame on you. Apparently you missed the fact that President Trump made the USA strong, and that put Putin off-balance.

    I think this is a very complex situation, for those of us who are older know that appeasement and not wanting another world war let Hitler get as far as he did. Many things start out as good as which NATO was formed for but get corrupted. We also remember Khrushchev taking off his shoe, banging it on the table, I believe at the UN and said he would bury us. All of the countries which fell to Marxism, freedom and religion were gone , freedom of speech banned , tyranny and privileges for the party members abounded. There may be some changes of that with Putin, but the basics of Marxism remain.

The other day, you had an article saying that you didn’t want to say that one of the two countries were being led by a worse leader than the other. Today you are determined to paint a picture of Putin as being completely evil, while completely disregarding the FACTS that Zelenskyy has been running a child sex trafficking operation through this country for years, that he has laundered money for the Clintons and Soros for years, and that Zelenskyy is totally for NWO. I’ve suspected for a while that you are a Catholic entity, and I know that the Pope is all for NWO, so now I’m thing that YOU are also for the NWO. Shameful !!!!!!!

The goal is Israel, we should never forget that. God in past times has used an enemy to get everyones attention. There is no right side of this current war. When will the body of Christ see?

    Amen! the goal is Israel and the second coming of Yeshuah (Jesus). Nazi direction Ukraine was moving should be noticed by Ecclesia at least 20 years ago before this evil racial ideology poisoned so many young people in Ukraine. It was popular to talk about racial superiority of Ukrainians over Russians. We remember gas chamber in Germany and Poland. Yes, it is about Israel. Our Heavenly Father, God of Abraham, Isaak and Jacob, open Your bride’s eyes, guide us in prayer help us “do not lean on our own understanding”. In Yeshuah name. Amen

Whatever the truth is coming out of the mouth of each world leader, God please let your will be done in Russia and the Ukrainian borders or borderless region. If this is a war tactic, again let your will be done. The evil people and governments that have infiltrated that land mass, let them be exposed for all humanity to see and/or understand what was really going on with past oligarchs and through past political administrations, now in Jesus’ mighty name. I pray for restitution of all that was stolen from the righteous people in Jesus ‘name.

I pray for both countries. As to be a prosperous country is good. Yet my concern is Ukraine will be slaughtered quickly. I pray they can come to resolution and I pray for my country to stay out of it and let the European Union handle it or not. We shouldn’t get involved other than to send sympathy and respect. I pray World War 3 to never begin as it seems probable due to stupidity such to mean not protecting our own livelihood and way of life. We should not be protecting other countries livelihoods at this time unless they become a state.

    I feel they are not dealing in reality Ukraine that is,it seems the European Union doesn’t want that property. They will have no choice it will be forced on them to side with Russia and knowing how Russia is the Ukraine government should of made agreements before this tragic way began. Please people to say the Ukraine government didn’t know invasion would happen is silly and very utopian society thinking that will never be a reality.America please stay out of it unless they want to become a state.

…the writer of this article claims our previous leader(Trump, I assume) laughed at Russia. That’s probably because Trump isn’t weak, corrupt, and dementia ridden like Biden, and would never allow a sovereign nation like Ukraine to be swallowed up by Russia or any other nation. Now that I have that out of my system; let’s take authority over all demonic forces in the heavenlies that only have the evil of tyranny and oppression , because as the body of Christ, we take authority over principalities and powers and we will not allow this evil to overpower this sovereign nation. And while this plays out, we support our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, as they stand in faith against this force of anti Christ.

    The way that I read the article was that the author was referring to the debate between presidential candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. In that debate, when talking about foreign policy, it was Obama who quipped and laughed that “the 1980’s were calling and they wanted their foreign policy back.” (Or something to that effect.). If you recall, it was Barack Obama who declared a “red line” against Assad in Syria. They crossed it and Obama did nothing allowing Putin to get a foothold.
    I do agree with your views on Trump being a strong leader and thank you for your prayers.

      Valid point, the author who is unknown at this point, would have been wise to pen his writing. Stating our “previous leader” means the last one, not Obama, otherwise the author would have changed the verbiage to read “one of our previous leaders” . thank you however, for knowing about Obama/Romney debate.

    Our “previous” leader….what previous leader? Are you speaking of Trump ( who I do not particularly like) or Obama?
    If you are speaking of Trump you are a moron. He may have been a moral degenerate (but so is Biden and almost every other politician in Washington, DC) but there were no wars when he was in office.

Father, our hearts are burdened for the people of Ukraine and in that region. May they see through the fog of war and what You are doing to cleanse the land of wickedness.
May those that You are using complete the process of draining the powers of wickedness.
May we remember it is not flesh and blood against whom we fight, but the power of darkness. Please remove the power of darkness and the tools, security and facilities which are used to commit Crimes against humanity and child sex trafficking. Expose it all, how global world leaders have been used to commit this heinous atrocities.
Our enemy is Satan, its minions and the sin in our own lives. We rejoice with our Brothers and Sisters for opportunities to share the gospel in time of darkness and so may we see You hand at work to grow Your church.
May we not be deceived but remember the enemy of our enemy is our friend and not be deceived by the media that has lied about the virus, the shots and the cures for 2 years and certainly will lie to protect their bosses regarding Russia and Ukraine. We ask for wisdom and discernment, may we not live in fear and may we pray on these subjects according to Your will alone as our opinions may be influenced by Satan and those that participate in activities You hate, especially the harming of the littles . We ask these things in the might name of Jesus and for His glory alone. Amen

I am from the U.K. and on the 25th February I was awakened at 3:30am in the morning and felt I had to pray. I was very heavy hearted as I checked to see the news from Ukraine. I began to pray and ask God for wisdom in how to pray effectively. The Lord clearly said to me as well as praying for Ukraine pray also for the Russian people as they are not happy about a war with Ukraine. So I began praying for the Russian people to rise up against Putins plans for war.
This morning I saw a Russian journalist interviewed who is horrified and in disbelief about what Putin is doing. I then saw a report of Russian citizens marching through Moscow chanting “no to war”They are very distressed about this and very upset that Putin is now making them appear a “Pariah” state to the rest of the world.
The Kremlin is not being truthful to the Russian people and is virtually telling lies to the Russian people.I believe that is why God showed me to pray for them as well.
So this morning please pray in agreement with me as we come boldly to Gods Throne of Grace for mercy and help for both the Ukrainians and the Russian people in this their time of need. Father we ask that the Truth of what Putin is doing is exposed to the Russian people and that they take a stand against the plans of Putin. Father we ask you to be strong on behalf of the Ukrainian people and the Russian citizens who condemn Putins actions. Father we ask that you send forth your Angel armies to uproot and pull down the wicked mindset of Putin and those in agreement with him and the enemy strongholds in their minds. We pray this in line with your word in
2 Corinthians 10 where it is said:
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Father we believe in your Word as it is active and powerful and does not return to you void, but accomplishes the purpose for which it is sent.
Father we thank you for great your faithfulness and your mercies which are new every morning.
We give praise and honour to your glorious name and humbly appeal to you as you remember your word “if any two agree on earth then you will do it as we ask this in the name of Jesus. Father let your Kingdom come in Ukraine and Russia on earth as it is n heaven.
Father would you show forth your Glory and demonstrate your power and your amazing love for the people caught up in this aggression from Putin. Protect them Father and we ask would you perform signs wonders and miracles before the World in Jesus name Amen🙏

    Maureen,
    I stand in agreement with you about the Russian people standing up. From all reports they are going to go to the streets tomorrow – March 6th. I pray for their safety. With the disregard for life that the demonic Putin has displayed, I pray they will leave their children at home.
    My prayer is that all of the despots (including the Russian Generals) be subjected to the admonition our Lord and Saviour declared in Luke 17:2 “It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.”

Russia’s power play, Biden let’s America fall. History is repeating itself once again. Here America can STOP this without firing a shot! The longer we wait the more difficult and dangerous it becomes. All America has to do is start producing oil and suppling the world market with lots of it, driving the price way down. This will stop the Russian war machine Ronald Reagan stop Russia financially and Biden could to, but will he? Pray that he will.
