Yesterday, apart from the front, a quiet day. Alarms from the south in eastern Ukraine. Yesterday afternoon quiet. In the east, war.
Alarms since morning across Ukraine.

The Word… “Your words, Lord, are spirit and life. You have the words of eternal life.”
Let us pray from the heart with this prayer:

O Lord, my God, great and terrible, who keep faithfully the covenant of those who love Thee and keep Thy commandments.
We have sinned, gone astray, committed iniquity and rebelled, deviated from Your commandments. We have disobeyed Your servants, the prophets who spoke in Your name to our kings, to our leaders, to our ancestors and to the entire population of the country.
With You, O Lord, righteousness, and with us shame on our faces, as it is with us today – with the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem, and all Israel, with those near and far, in all countries, where You have driven them because of the unfaithfulness they have shown to You.
Lord! Shame on our faces, our kings, our leaders and our fathers, for we have sinned against You. But the Lord our God is merciful and shows mercy, even though we rebelled against Him and did not listen to the voice of the Lord our God to follow the instructions He gave us through His servants, the prophets.

This is the Word of God.

We live in a war, we do not live by war.
