DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. (AFNS) —
A middle-aged man in dark pastor robes sits on the edge of a wooden pew, hands clasped. Overwhelming sadness and worry washes over him as he reflects on those who have lost their lives since Russia invaded Ukraine.
His heart is pained as he wonders: “How many people have to die before this stops?”
After a long, shaky breath, the man dips his head in prayer and speaks.
“Lord, be with the suffering people of Ukraine. Keep my family safe and stop this wicked war. Comfort them in the way that only You can. In Your holy name I pray, amen.”
