For election campaign in Ukraine
« on: October 17, 2009, 09:55:10 AM »
May I ask your prayers that the presidential election campaign in my home country, Ukraine, will go peacefully. The elections are scheduled on January 17 and the campaign officially starts next Monday, October 19.

Right now, it does not look very promicing that things will go peacefully. Several days ago, a representative of one of the candidates for president leaked information that several members of a rival party were, allegedly, involved in a child molestation ring. Emotions are heating up.

Thank you in advance for your prayers, they mean very much to Ukraine and to me.
Love never fails.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth,
The Omnipresent One Who fills all things,
Treasury of Blessings and Giver of Life,
Come dwell in us, cleanse us from all stain
And save our souls o Good One!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
