[remorse and praying for one’s enemies]

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

    Yes, all people need to pray for both “sides” on this. Many people will suffer if this situation escalates. However, I would suggest that we need to remove all hate from our own minds, however subtle the form of “revenge” might be. Hate in any form cannot be reconciled with Christian teachings. Our first task is with ourselves.

    A challenge, no doubt, but it is an essential first step in true prayer. Let us then pray for all participants in this situation, so that God’s love can come through and help everyone to see a better way.

    • Yeah, it was a somewhat tongue-in-a-cheek thing about “the worst thing that can happen to them.” On a serious note, I have no idea where (well, I do have an idea) I got this peace and ability to even think of praying for them.

  • You are being a testimony to those around you and to those of us who read you blog. For sure it is God who is dropping those thoughts of praying for your enemies…or those who hurt you. We have to go against the feelings of hurt to do this…thus building your faith in your Heavenly Father. Praying for you my courageous wise hearted blog friend.

    May our Father strengthen you and give you peace. You are daily in my thoughts, Zee.

  • it is hard to pray for our enemies, but we do have a great Example. As for your post, I like the idea of Putin and Y coming to Christ. Giving up to gain. My prayers continue for you, Sam and all of Ukraine & Russia.

    • Thanks, Big Brother 🙂

      Yeah, if that would happen, it would be… oh, I don’t know. A true miracle, equal (or even more dramatic) than raising of Lazarus from the dead.

  • Wow, Sister. This is an amazing view during a harsh time. Thank you for pouring out your heart so we can understand better how to pray. God is with you.

    • @kevianaelliot:disqus – thanks for praying.

      God is so active here right now, and I am looking forward to finally writing how everything worked out. Because it already is working out… in miraculous ways.

        This situation is a long way from being resolved.

    I’m so glad you stopped by my blog http://www.jenniferdougan.com, so I could meet you. Yes, knowing who to run to in troubled times is paramount! Our God is strong and good. Thanks for stopping in.

    Hmm, I was instantly intrigued at your mention of instability in your region, and hopped over here to see what country you were in. The Ukraine. Yes, we have been watching BBC news, and praying for your nation. I’m sorry for the loss of life and tension your region is going through. I used to live in West Africa, and we were there when the civil war broke out years ago.

    I have family who were in the Ukraine last year for about three weeks, and they have recognized various places on the news this month.

    Watching the news with you,

    • Jennifer,

      Thanks for the prayers. We definitely need them since at the moment we don’t know what might happen, considering that it’s now Europe plus the States against Russia on Ukrainian ground. (BTW, the country’s called simply Ukraine. Used to be “the Ukraine” back when we were a part of the USSR, but ever since independence, it’s just “Ukraine”:)

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing encouragement! God bless!


  • I never thought that praying for Putin and Yanokovych to become Christians could be some sort of revenge, but I do like the idea of praying that they will put their faith in Jesus. I’m convinced that is the best thing for those guys and if it happens it will also be a good thing for Ukraine and Russia!

    • Well, like I said below in one of the comments, it was a tongue-in-a-cheek kind of thing… But it does give some relief to know that one day they shall realize what they have done. I can’t help it – my people have died.
