A prayer for the Ukraine


by AliMom

Displaced from hearth and home
Fearfully pushed and harassed
Some hurt, some killed
By bullies who savor power and destruction
Who must put power on display
For all the world to see

But God
Favors the weak and the innocent
Defends those who cannot protect themselves
Hears their deafening cries of sorrow and despair
And decides what's fair

Demonstrations of power
Mean little to an all-powerful God
Watch and pray
Victory is always His
And He sees everything

I hate bullies. It doesn't matter how big or small they think they are. They're self-serving and thoughtless. They have no problem wielding their power and rattling their sabers against the weak and defenseless.
