Tonight, as I prepare for bed, the people of Ukraine weigh heavy on my mind. How I wish I could tell you, “Hold fast, help is coming.” But, I know it’s not. Deep down, you know, apart from a miraculous intervention from God, help is not coming. At least not from human hands. No. It appears that you are on your own.
Keep fighting. You have it within you. You can, Ukraine. You can.
Your fight stirs up distant memories of brave soldiers fighting valiantly on battlefields called Gettysburg and the Alamo. Your fight brings to mind the courageous souls who gave their lives at Goliad, Pearl Harbor, and at the Twin Towers.
Your courage harkens memories of the bravery demonstrated by the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93. Keep fighting.
Know this: we are watching and we are praying for an intervention of miraculous proportions to deliver you from the Evil menacingly approaching your sovereign doorsteps.
“The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride,”Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
Freedom is never free. Through centuries upon centuries, freedom has been bought and paid for with the blood of valiant innocents caught up in a storm unleashed by a power wielding tyranny in one hand and torturous oppression in the other.
Stand steadfast. Remain strong and courageous to the very end. Fight valiantly with every last breath.
May your sacrifice not be forgotten. Oh Ukraine, may your people not die in vain. As He did for David facing the giant, may God give you strength and courage…and victory.
And may He shower you with His grace and mercy.

“I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.”
Psalm 121:1-8 NLT
