Dear Ones,
Hope you are enjoying the day. We are getting more energy. PTL! I also seem to be getting a cold, and am hoping to shoo it away! I haven’t been outside our apt. so seems impossible. We will enjoy soup today left by our door last night by kind friends! A perfect treat! 
Devotins from Judy’s heart
Perhaps we all have had moments when we have a sense of the supernatural and can actually feel the prayers of others holding us up. It’s like we are going through the actions with much grace but absolutely knowing it is not our power but it is the Lord!
Let us never underestimate the power of prayer for we cannot fully comprehend what a difference it is making in the spiritual realm.
Recently a friend sent me a text message she had received from her sister that was written by a Ukrainian brother who fights for Ukraine. Hopefully it will help us persist in prayer for those suffering and giving their lives for their country.  His words: “I want to inspire those who pray for us with the words of our soldiers and ordinary people from different parts of Ukraine, where the battle takes place. Soldiers of Ukraine testify, ‘We feel your prayerful support. Sometimes something really incomprehensible happens, as if someone’s invisible hand is actually making bullets fly past us. We win in very difficult situations as if someone is helping us. We are invisible to the enemy, while we ourselves become able to see in the dark, and we know what to do and how to do it. It inspires us and gives us strength. We believe that the Jesus Christ Himself is for Ukraine. We ask you not to stop, support us and continue to pray.  We really need you.’”
Sometimes we apologetically say to another, “I can’t do much all I can do is pray.” That is the most important thing we can do as we put it all into God’s hands. It touched my heart to see the picture of rows and rows of soldiers on their knees, many of them lifting their hands heavenward, all praying for God’s help. The future is unknown to them, but humbly asking for God’s help.
As it says in Psalm 107:28-29 (NIV), “Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought the out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided the to their desired haven.”
Only the Lord can hush this horrible storm and may we all stand together with the people of Ukraine and pray as never before.
Challenge for today: Gather with other Christians and pray for the people of Ukraine.
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
