I want to ask you: “Do you know what will happen with you today? Do you know what will happen with you tomorrow? Do you know what will happen with you in a week? Do you know what will happen with you in a year? Who knows that? Do you know? ” I don’t know. Maybe someone feels it. But this all is a mystery for us, which is covered with opaque covering. And only God knows this mystery.
We read In the Gospel how Our Lord Jesus Christ healed different people many times. A man suffered for a long time before the healing. The man suffered many-many years. Maybe, the man suffered for his mistakes, or even not for his own mistakes. It is unknown. Maybe, he suffered for his relatives, close people he took care of for a long time. And the Lord came at that time when that person needed that, when the man was ready to be healed.
Today a lot of people ask question: “How to pray in the time of the terrible war aggression, which is happening in Ukraine right now? How long this darkness will last in our country? How long people will suffer in it?” And the answer, I think, can be next: God comes at the time we are ready to accept help. The Lord pulls us out of the conditions we are stuck in; it concerns to one person and to the country in the whole. He helps every person as much as it is possible to help this man in these circumstances. He helps all the time. He takes care of every person, who is opened to Him, who invites Him to the life, to the heart, to the existence on the Earth, to the inner world.
And there must be a prayer if we want that the Lord could act more in our life and in the life of our country. Actions and the prayer. If we can do nothing now, because we are weak, because we do not have power and chance to do something good, there is a prayer. There is a sincere, true prayer, which brings the light on this Earth. The prayer can change the course of war aggression, which is happening in our country. In order to have less bloodbathiness and murders. That all other countries of the world, that look and think now: “Should we interfere? Should we help?” That they will start to act. They have to start helping to save our nation, save our faith, save our people.
But we shouldn’t blame people, who are destroying our country. However, we can’t bear them. At the same time we do not know what will happen with us in the future. They suffer too that they destroy. Maybe they are intoxicated with that evil spirit they are surrounded. We can only pray, that the bloodshed will stop on our land as soon as possible.
And we even have to pray for Russia. We shouldn’t pollute it and blame it. No. There are good, sincere people, who have not woken up jet. But maybe one, two or even ten present of Russian people start to understand what is happening. And the Lord will bless and they will wake up due to our prayers. That they could understand what has happened in our country; we replaced that corrupted government and they can do the same. They have to become free and to stop their sufferings. They have to be full of that mud in which they live.
Do not switch on Russian channels, do not watch their advertising. I accidentally saw their advertising and was shocked. They just confuse facts in every way they can.
That is why we have to pray not only for ourselves, we must pray for them. In order to help the light to come from inside the country – from people. It will not come from the government; it is useless to wait something good out of it. It is deaf to this life, it is deaf to this world, it lives in itself. But we want our Earth to be in Light. We want the Lord be on it; we want Him to be with us, that He could hear our prayers. Because it is our right – to ask. It is our right. So, do not throw it away, but use it. It is the instrument of work and with it you can help that God’s Light and the Kingdom of God will be on the Earth.
Appeal to God with any words. You can read the prayer, any prayer you know – “Our Father in heaven” or “O Heavenly King”. You can read any prayer you want. Everything what brings something good to your soul. Everything what helps your soul to develop and open to God. You can say in your own words: “Oh Lord, help, because the Earth suffers, because the Earth asks and people ask: Oh God, help!” And God’s grace and love will come. Because it depends on our actions, prayers and desires. That is why do not throw it. Pray, ask, act, live!
