A prayer for Ukraine

Home » News Articles » A prayer for Ukraine

Dear Lord,

Author of all peace
who through your son reconciled us to yourself,
we pray for peace in our world
at a time of heightened tensions.

We pray...
for our governments and political leaders — for wise counsel and sound initiative to defuse tension...
for diplomats — that they may have space to negotiate...
for the people of Ukraine — that their close ties with the people of Russia and other neighbours will remain strong even in the face of military threat...

We pray that all governments commit time to dialogue and understanding,
respect the will and freedom of all peoples,
invest in welfare and alleviation of poverty
and reject militarism and the threat of violence.

May Christ's teaching and example be our inspiration,
may hearts and minds be changed,
and may your holy spirit be at work transforming each of us day by day,
through your everlasting grace and mercy.
