As war erupts in Europe as Russia attacks Ukraine, I created these artful prayers for Ukraine to express the prayers that fill my heart and mind. And, yes, I’m also praying for Russia, that’s the next post. I posted the first on Saturday, February 26, 2022 – and on Sunday Elon Musk’s twitter exchange with Ukrainian leaders hit the news. I’m not saying my prayer was the thing that did that, many people around the world are praying. I am saying that’s the kind of out of the box thinking I prayed for. Prayer works.
These don’t begin with a salutation, nor do they close with an Amen. They are a slice of an on-going conversation in my heart and mind, as well as that of so many others.
