I pray for all the humanity suffering in that awful theater of war- every soldier and fighter, every man woman and child. I pray that God makes room in the hearts of all for his truth and for a peaceful end to the war.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
Ephesians 6:12 NAS

The apostle Paul believed that our struggle is against spiritual forces of wickedness.

These forces of darkness employ powerful weaponry-- lies, deceptions, coercion and manipulations as well as brutality, fear, intimidation, greed, arrogance, pride and the idolatry of power and domination and anything else that comes bewteen man and God. If you look at the wars and history of wars in the Middle East - you can see where the sin and guilt have had influence on every faction and every nation involved without exception. Man's general refusal to observe God's laws as explained throughout the Bible and in the words of Christ is what enables these forces to hold sway resulting in conflict, violence, strife and warfare. None are innocent.
