I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask for peace in Ukraine, that there would be no bloodshed, especially for civilians. We ask also that this conflict would not escalate to drag the U.S. into war. Have your way God!

This headline from a secular news site really caught our attention. They are asking for a miracle…well, let’s pray for one.

From CNBC News: Millions of Ukrainians saw their lives plunged into uncertainty as troops rolled into eastern Ukraine in the early hours of Tuesday morning, following orders from Russian President Vladimir Putin. The headline-dominating news followed Moscow’s recognition of two breakaway republics run by pro-Russian militias.

For markets, fears of a Russian invasion — that have been voiced by Western leaders for weeks but mocked by Moscow as “propaganda” — triggered a sell-off. But for Ukrainians themselves, across the country of 44 million, the consequences are much more personal.

“I’m really scared,” Olga Pereverzeva, an accountant living in eastern Ukraine, told CNBC in the hours after Putin’s order to send in troops.

Her home in Mariupol is on the frontier of the conflict in the separatist areas of Donetsk and Luhansk and just 30 miles away from the Russian border. The city of half a million people was briefly captured by Russian-backed separatists in 2014, and has seen substantial violence since.

“Mariupol is so close to the border,” she said. “We need a miracle to save us…”

For months, Russia has been amassing heavy weaponry and troops — now numbering upwards of 150,000 — near the Ukrainian border and carrying out military drills, all the while insisting it had no plans to invade its neighbor. But the conflict between the two countries — underpinned by Putin’s conviction that Ukraine belongs to Russia — has been going on for years…

The United Nations estimated in 2019 that 13,000 people have died in the conflict; the number is likely to be even higher now….

In recent days, Russian state-controlled media and the separatist groups in Luhansk and Donetsk have reported escalated fighting, accusing Ukrainian forces of instigating attacks.

Ukraine has vehemently denied such action, and Western leaders have repeatedly warned of “false flag” operations carried out by Russia to legitimize invading.

On Monday, Russia used the reports of renewed violence — which the West and Kyiv said was manufactured by Moscow — to justify sending in “peacekeeping forces” to protect their citizens.

Now, the critical question is whether Putin will stop at the eastern regions of Luhansk and Donetsk, or carry on to take more of Ukraine and even its capital Kyiv…

All over the country, families have prepared for rapid getaways should Russian forces penetrate their towns and cities.

“Most of the people around me are genuinely afraid and unsure of what’s going to happen. Some have packed small suitcases,” Irina Solodka, a doctor in Kyiv, told CNBC.

For her part, however, she said she was continuing with business as usual. “I believe that everything will end on a positive note for Ukrainians,” she said. “We are not running from anything and Kyiv is peaceful right now. We are not, however, 100% certain of that just yet.”

How are you praying for these citizens?

From Ephesians
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
We proclaim our armor in place!!

Proverbs 15:26-27 The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked, but the words of the pure are pleasant to Him. He who is greedy for unjust gain brings trouble on his household, but he who hates bribes will live.
Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace,” says the LORD, “for the wicked.”
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Dear Heavenly Father, there is nothing that does not concern You. I pray the thoughts and inclinations, plans and strategies, schemes and plots of Your fallen children will bring trouble upon themselves. I pray in their lives, beginning this moment, there is NO peace. But because You are a loving and kind Father, please draw Vladimir and all of his cohorts into Godly sorrow so they can know true peace. I pray this in the Name of our Peacegiver, Jesus Christ. Amen

Father God, we know that in the last days there will be wars and rumors of wars. It is not time for a show down war with Russia and/or China. There is a lot of saber rattling going on, but we pray for your protection world wide and esp. for the Ukraine right now. Let Your awakening come with a great soul harvest among every tribe and nation. We pray for President Putin. He has great respect for the Pentecostal Church. We pray that more than respect, he will be drawn by Holy Spirit to a salvation relationship with Jesus Christ.
I ask that You bind Joe Bidens hands and those who are behind his decisions, that we may have Godly leadership in America.
We give You all praise and glory, You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
In Jesus name…. may Your will be done in our lives, in Your Church, and among the nations. Amen

Our Blessed Mother Mary had told the three children in Fatima, Portugal during her six visitations to them in May of 1917 through October of 1917 that if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart, then the pernicious and devastating spread of communism would ensnare the west. It is imperative that we, as Americans rooted in true freedom that our Lord gives us as his gift, supplicate our Lady for the United States to wholeheartedly repent of its wickedness and sinfulness and to bring us on our knees to beg the Lord Jesus for mercy-both for ourselves and the Soviet Union. Our Lord says very clearly that you will know a tree by the fruit it produces and both Biden and Putin bear the most rotten fruit from the secular tree planted by Satan regarding their blatant irreverence for our Lord and his binding commandments. Let us persevere to the end so that our Lord will bring us home to himself with the reward of eternal life, no matter what the outcome of this invasion of Ukraine might bring.

Father, you are sovereign. Man may have many schemes but your purposes prevail. Please, heavenly Father, intercede, intervene in this area. Please keep angels around the people in this area, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ, and particularly Connie’s family there. Thank you Lord, let your will be done.

Dear God, our eyes are turned towards you as we ask for the miracle of salvation and repentance of all who are planning to do harm to the country of Ukraine. God we ask that you change the hearts of the evil ones in power or end their power now. Got, we ask for your help. God you promise that the anointing you put on peoples lives, cannot be broken. You have anointed people to stop this aggression and restore freedom and power to your people. We ask for a miracle to come today to the country of Ukraine. We ask of your will and blessings to be poured over all who cherish you and worship you in the country of Ukraine. We ask of that in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Father, Ukraine is a very young country. Lord, You raised up prayer warriors in that country to intercede on behalf of the citizens. Now, Lord, answer their prayers. You are mighty to save. Use this situation to reap a harvest of souls in the region. Protect peoples’ lives, homes, and businesses. Stop the invasion of an ungodly kingdom. You are known for Your mighty deeds of old. Now, Father, make Yourself known once again by just speaking the Word from heaven that say, “Let my will be done!” Amen

Don’t believe everything you are hearing in our news. Putin made a peace treaty with Luhansk and Donetsk and sent in peace keeping troops in case the deep state starts a war. Putin is not interested in a war. If he was, he would have been able to take Ukraine way before now. The deep state is looking for something to take Americans attention off of the truth which we know God is continually revealing. Father God, keep our eyes on you. Give us spirit eyes to discern and know how to pray. In Jesus mighty name…so be it!

Father! Great Defender! Rebuke and bind the demons behind the actions, thoughts and words of Putin, Biden, Hunter, Trudeau!
Cause them to meet You, cause them to turn on each other in confusion! Cause them to turn to You that they would be saved!
Protect the USA, Ukraine, Canada from this evil plot!
We bind the evil actions, words and thoughts of these men and release heaven upon the land!
Father, give us a second wind. Fill us with Your dynamic breath, give our hands extra power, bring Your Word to the front of our minds as we speak to victory and against evil!
In the name ABOVE all names, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Yeshua HaMashiach Ha Nazarati!
Amen!
