Lord, who fashioned the heavens and earth by Your Word, have mercy!

By the intercessions of the most holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary, have mercy on us!

All-Holy Trinity, have mercy on us.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

One of the consequences of war has raised its ugly head.  Through the intercessions of the Theotokos, LORD have mercy!

Tragically this is one of the consequences of war, but it is also the result of health workers undertaking polio vaccination programmes being targeted or refused access by Jihadist groups.

Oh most Holy Trinity have mercy on them.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

What do you mean being targeted? Bad people targeting health workers?

Oh, what a nightmare.

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.
