Prayers

A prayer for compassion, strength and wisdom 

Loving God,
We pray for the People of Ukraine.
For all those suffering or afraid,
That you will be close to them and protect them.
We pray for world leaders,
For compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.
We pray for the world that in this moment of crisis,
We may reach out in solidarity
To our brothers and sisters in need.
May we walk in your ways
So that peace and justice become a reality for the people of Ukraine
And for all the world 
Amen

A prayer for the Ukraine crisis

Lord God of hosts,
we pray for those who choose war this day,
taking the blood of others.
You set before us the day 
when swords will be turned into ploughshares,
so direct the leaders of the world 
to seek the peace and courage 
of the one who made peace, 
not by blood taken, but by blood given,
our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
