Let us all keep the faith as the Ukraine crisis unfolds and pray for it to be God’s will for it to end quickly. There is so much power in prayer; if we all pray together, God must listen to us. My personal belief is that when God sends challenges, he also provides the strength, grace, courage – everything we need – to endure and get through (1 Corinthians 10:13)

What a powerful message today. The whole world is horrified at what is happening in Ukraine and with the whole world praying with our eyes fixed on Jesus- the incredible power of prayer will overcome the evil. We are fearful but we need to keep our eyes on the Lord and not listen to the fear in our hearts though they are breaking for the suffering of the Ukrainian people. Help us dear and Powerful Lord to fix our eyes on you ALL the time. Thank you for this wonderful encouraging lesson today. God bless your wonderful work.

Thank you Bruce. That message put things into perspective beautifully. Would it be possible for you to do a series on Revelations, some time. I have been reading and googling for more explanations on this part of the Bible. It is hard to read and understand.

Thank you Bruce for reminding me to fix my eyes on our Lord Jesus in our difficult circumstances, especially what is happening to Ukraine and the poor people! I will continue to pray for the people of Ukraine, that they may experience His mighty, Loving Presence, that Emmanuel is with them. No matter how big the storms are, our God is GREATER! That I can TRUST HIM who has the BIGGER PICTURE for each one of us. That I can rest in HIM, my Lord and Saviour to stop these storms as the Lord gets in our boat. Come Holy… Read more »

Today after hearing the latest news of the war, my heart felt really heavy and broke up in tears to the point of desperation.
With a broken heart I started listening to the devotional of today. While I was listening to your talk, I felt a great peace coming to me. It was just what I needed at that moment. It was like God talking directly to me.
Thank you Bruce. I know that God put those words in you. I also know that many of us needed to be reminded that God is with us always.

The power of prayer should never be underestimated. This urging to us to ask the Lord for peace is so vital. We need to turn to Him and ask for a better world where hard hearts can be changed.
Keep reminding and encouraging us Bruce as we saw with Peter we can be weak and take our eyes away.
Thank you as always God Bless

Thank you Bruce for this inspiring Bible session today. When you talk and explain the scriptures it makes me understand a lot of things that has been happening in my life and still today. But what those poor souls are going through in the Ukraine is very bad. We all must stand together and pray for them. God bless the people in the Ukraine and cover them with the Blood of Christ. Amen.

He is there for each and everyone of us. I believe if we live or die, God is protecting us and one day we will be with Him. I too I’m sad and hurt about the war but must sometimes pull away and focus on God and pray for everyone to turn… Read more »

It was a wonderful inspirational message today.
The first thing I thought of was the lyrics to the song …
Turn your eyes upon Jesus…
look full in His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace….
It’s a beautiful song that will always bring comfort and hope🙏

Thank you very much for the prayer and focus on Ukraine today (3/17 in America). It occurs to me that even being a practicing Catholic my entire life (30some years) I’ve never completely read that passage of scripture. Wow, how moving, how beautiful, how powerful. As someone who struggles with anxiety, it might be my new favorite.

Blessings to you and yours, and prayers for peace in the world. Thank you for your ministry!

Dear Bruce, I continue to give thanks for you & your ministry! The people of Ukraine & the ramifications or this invasion are very much tugging at our hearts. We must unite in prayer & trust in God’s Presence in this terrible war, God’s Blessings & protection upon you & all the people of Ukraine, those who have died & those reaching out to help those in need. Also, Conversion of Putin’s heart!

Thank you Bruce for this powerful teaching. I had so many thoughts this morning and none made sense. But after listening to your words my heart and mind became more settled. I also said the Rosary with you and wife this a.m. and thank-you also for that. Prayer is our power and keeping eyes on Jesus……
