The painting depicts a young woman praying fervently.
It may be that she is Ukraine, as the color thematics of blue and gold suggest, praying for peace in her homeland. She prays that God may provide strength and fervour for her countrymen to stand firm in the fight for their nation, under attack from dark forces of oppression.
Topic relevance to Ephesians 6:10-20
The scripture reads “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests”. This Christian woman is deep in prayer, asking God to bring peace in her homeland of Ukraine.
Scripture: “…our struggle is not against the flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil…”. The struggle in her case is against the Russian ruler and authorities who have brought on this war against Ukraine, representing the forces of evil.
Scripture: “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” There is little more she and her countrymen can do other than pray and stand firm and hold their ground, for they are vastly outnumbered in terms of physical might on the battlefield.
