Greg:

Lets also pray for the Neo-nazis to be driven out of Ukraine's military, as well as the deep-seated corruption of just about everyone, including Zelensky, to be rooted out and exposed so the country can be better positioned to heal and move forward in a way the benefits everyone in the region.

Wow, Greg. Pretty nifty. Dueling political prayers! I guess the Father has to pick His fav.

A good reminder that the political situation is complicated.  Well said.

I don't need political propaganda in the Faithlife forums.

How did I know the resident Finger-Wagger would show up? I'm surprised you didn't come earlier and alert everyone to how this wasn't related to Faithlife at all. I guess you're fine with political propaganda as long as it just confirms your biases and goes in one direction.

This is correct. Anyone praying for a return to the status quo needs a history lesson that goes back more than 4 weeks.

I'm fine with praying for Neo-Nazis and corrupt politicians. Just not for their success.

Not sure why this is a controversial idea.

As much goodwill as she has built up, and justifiably so, the impulse to turn into Nurse Ratched at a moment's notice completely squanders it.  Frankly, I've had it up to here with the power trip.

Maybe because we're not so naive. Nor the Diety.

Sorry not sorry my prayers don't conform to your preferred narrative.

We ought to pray for peace. We ought to pray for those suffering. We ought to pray for the salvation of souls.  We ought to pray for the Lord's people who occupy many churches in Ukraine.  We ought to pray for the Lord's will to be done in Ukraine and in other places of the earth.  We do not have perfect knowledge.  But the Lord does.  He knows the end from the beginning.  We ought to pray for those we love and for our enemies, whether real or perceived.  We ought to pray that the Lord would also change our hearts and instill the character of Christ in us.

I am thankful for this thread and for the logos resources that have come to light as a result.
