Prayers for Ukraine
We pray for peace for Ukraine.
PRAYER for UKRAINE On this Passion Sunday 3rd April Christian
Aid is asking churches and Christians to come together in an act of
witness to pray and light candles for Ukraine, for an end to the
conflict, and for all those affected by the terrible impact of war.
God of all peoples and nations,
who created all things alive and breathing, united and whole,
show us the way of peace that is Your overwhelming presence.
We hold before you the peoples of Ukraine and Russia, every child and every adult.
We long for the time when weapons of war are beaten into ploughshares
when nations no longer lift up sword against nation.
We cry out to you for peace.
Protect those who only desire and deserve to live in security and safety.
Comfort those who fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
Be with those who are bereaved.
Change the hearts of those set on violence and aggression
and fill leaders with the wisdom that leads to peace.
Kindle again in us a love of our neighbour and a passion for justice to prevail
and a renewed recognition that we all play a part in peace.
Creator of all hear our prayer and bring us peace. Make us whole. Amen.
Please see Prayers attached.
