I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would give our leaders wisdom monitor this situation. Help them to find a balance that allows them to assist Ukraine without leaving us vulnerable.

The U.S. has given Ukraine a great deal of weapons. Unfortunately, this has started to diminish our weapons to use in case of an attack.

From The Epoch Times. The planes take off almost daily from Dover Air Force Base in Delaware—hulking C-17s loaded up with Javelins, Stingers, howitzers, and other material being hustled to Eastern Europe to resupply Ukraine’s military…

The game-changing impact of those arms is exactly what President Joe Biden hopes to spotlight as he visits a Lockheed Martin plant in Alabama on Tuesday…

But Biden’s visit is also drawing attention to a growing concern as the war drags on: Can the United States sustain the cadence of shipping vast amounts of arms to Ukraine while maintaining the healthy stockpile it may need if a new conflict erupts with North Korea, Iran, or elsewhere?

The United States already has provided about 7,000 Javelins, including some that were delivered during the Trump administration, about one-third of its stockpile, to Ukraine…

Analysts also estimate that the United States has sent about one-quarter of its stockpile of shoulder-fired Stinger missiles to Ukraine. Raytheon Technologies CEO Greg Hayes told investors last week during a quarterly call that his company, which makes the weapons system, wouldn’t be able to ramp up production until next year due to parts shortages.

“Could this be a problem? The short answer is, ‘Probably, yes,’” said Cancian, a retired Marine colonel and former government specialist on Pentagon budget strategy, war funding, and procurement.

He said that Stingers and Javelins were where “we’re seeing the most significant inventory issues,” and production of both weapons systems has been limited in recent years….

Father, I pray you would turn our leaders to your wisdom in helping Ukraine. Help them to care what happens to our country. May they heed the danger they are putting us in.

I pray to God that we stop giving the Ukraine weapons that will only cause more death and lengthen this war. Ukraine has said they have no intention of negotiating a peace that would allow the independence of the disputed Russian speaking Donbas region. Also, they have killed 14,000 innocent civilians in this region prior to the start of this war. These people have been fighting for their Independence and the Ukraine army is the aggressor. We should not support them with weapons. God will judge us, too.

Lord, I believe there is a motive behind this which has not been revealed. I ask You to expose any attempt to weaken our military strength. Lord, protect us with Your mighty power against enemies foreign and domestic. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
My granddaughter is in the army. She is a Sapper and a Captain leading her own troops now. I pray that God will protect her and keep all of them out of war and harm.
