Prayer -Ukraine and Russia war

Lord God Most High, from your throne in heaven you see and know the truth of everything that is happening in our world today especially in Ukraine and Russia. We pray as Hannah prayed that you will thunder from heaven and break the strength of those who are wicked, strengthen your children in this hour of need, silence the boasting and arrogance of the evil one, deliver your children from evil today we pray, in Jesus’ mighty name Amen.

Then Hannah prayed and said:

“My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.

There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.

The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength. Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry are hungry no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.

The Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up. The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor.

For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; on them he has set the world. He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness.

It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth.

He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.”
1 Samuel 2:1-10

Amen

Prayer is Powerful

As we see events unfolding in Ukraine and Russia, let us stir up our faith on behalf of our brothers and sisters and remind ourselves that we serve God the Almighty, whose arm is not too short to save. He is the God of the impossible. The Lord of Hosts. He is the God of miracles. He is our peace.

Let us present our petitions to Him and cry out for those who are suffering and in need at this time.

To encourage us in our prayers, build and stir faith, I have some recent prayer posts on God Almighty, Angelic Hosts, God is the Most High, God our Great Provider, God will show Himself strong for you.

Have a blessed day.

Watch the Nations – whose side will they take?

I am reposting a word which the Lord gave me in August 2020 as the Lord has reminded me of this word today. I do not know if this word is about the current situation in Ukraine and Russia but please read, test and pray as the Lord leads you. Thank you.

I sense that God is encouraging us to watch & pray and see which nations are aligning themselves with each other in the times ahead.

Nations which at one time were bitter enemies may start to align themselves – taking sides against other nations.

Nations which at one time would have relied on support from another nation will instead be betrayed when that nation unexpectedly sides against them.

I felt God say that this is a time when nations need to be careful who they align themselves with in the days ahead and what they do. Those decisions will have eternal consequences.

Nations are in danger of allowing pride to deceive them into making the wrong alliances.

Obadiah is one of the shortest books in the Old Testament but it warns about the consequences of such actions for the nation of Edom. In verse 3 we read about the nation of Edom “the pride of your heart has deceived you”.

Edom picked the wrong side to support. They chose to align themselves with an enemy against Israel & the people of God who were their brothers.

Edom was part of the winning side or so it seemed at the time. Israel was defeated. Edom celebrated the victory and rejoiced over Israel’s destruction & captivity.

However, God was against their behavior – v 10 – For violence against your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you” v11 – in the day that you stood on the other side”

Edom aligned themselves wrongly.

The consequences of that decision & their subsequent actions were that they were going to be shamed & brought low. God would take vengeance on their actions and against those who harmed His people. God was going to restore His people.

In verse 15 it says “For the day of the Lord upon all nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you – your reprisal shall return upon your own head”.

How the nations act & what they do – God will measure it back to them.

There is a day of divine justice coming to all the nations of the earth.

Jesus said that in the last days “Nations will rise against Nations” – Matthew 24:7

Let us watch & pray over the nations as the Lord leads us in these days.

God bless,
