I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask that you protect the vulnerable from sexual violence in Ukraine. Bring healing and restoration to the victims there, and bring justice to the perpetrators.

Regardless of the politics, these victims deserve our prayer and attention.

From CNN. The United Nations has called for the increasing reports of rape and sexual violence against Ukrainian women and children during the Russian invasion of the country to be independently investigated.

Sima Bahous, executive director of UN Women, a United Nations entity dedicated to advancing gender equity and the empowerment of women, called for a “gender-sensitive” humanitarian response during an address at the UN Security Council (UNSC) in New York City on Monday morning….
There is also an increased risk of human trafficking at border crossings, with young women and unaccompanied teenagers at particular risk, she added.
Reports of sexual violence and other war crimes by Russian troops have been emerging from areas retaken by Ukrainian forces, including Bucha, a suburb of the capital city Kyiv….
“Women make up 80% of all health and social care workers in Ukraine, and many of them chose not to evacuate,” [Bahous] said. “I heard from women in the shelters that they too, are taking on leadership roles, and supporting the refugee response in the host countries.”
But women remain largely absent from any current negotiation efforts, said Bahous, who called for the UNSC and all UN member states to “ensure the meaningful participation of women and girls, including from marginalized groups, in all decision-making processes, peace, diplomacy, and humanitarian.”
“Without this, we will not have peace, development, or human security,” she said.
Also on Monday, Manuel Fontaine, director of emergencies for the UN children’s agency UNICEF, said that nearly two-thirds of Ukraine’s children have been displaced in just six weeks.
Almost half of the 3.2 million who remain in their homes may face food insecurity, added Fontaine.
The situation for children in Ukraine is even worse in Mariupol and Kherson, “where children and their families have now gone weeks without running water and sanitation services, a regular supply of food, and medical care,” said Fontaine….

Dear Father God grow in us by the power of Holy Spirit discernment: to not be fooled by the latest press release or even “words for publication” from less than supportive nations and international organizations. . WHO, part of UN wants to punish anyone that does not follow the Who Covid rules (they are not voted agents. WHO has made some questionable decisions and we are better to pray and discern, and ask, it’s this of God? Is WHO a friend an enemy a fox that will say or do anything ? Global tyranny will thrive and grow unless we stand and say enough- Even at the cost of our earthly life. In Christ Jesus powerful name amen .
Better would be to support the growth of a free Ukraine state and they can then bring criminals to the international court if they desire..

Dear God, As we pour out our hearts before You for the lives of the Ukrainian children (as if they are our children) we ask you God to send forth laborers to bring them food and supplies into the cities where these Children are hiding out. Lord Bless our friend Scott who is there right now delivering food and supplies on the front lines of this hellish situation.. Lord heal and help the woman who have been violently raped by the Russian army. LORD please bring these men to their knees and Save them by the grace and mercy of God ! Please convict them of the evil that has touched so many due to man listening to the voice of the enemy and following the demonic instead of Jesus Christ.

LORD – keep us fasting and praying in the days and week ahead that you the LORD God Almighty the KING of Glory would hear our individual, desperate plea for Your justice and TRUTH to prevail an Vidicate the Nation of Ukraine and bring Russia and President Putin to their knees , turn Putins heart like a watercourse toward you God that he will repent and see the full error of His ways and the manipulation he is under from the prince and power of the earthly realm (satan). LORD You are the KING of kings and the LORD of lords and this Battle is in Your capable hands.
