Prayers for Ukraine
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, Prince of Peace. Amen.
A Collect for Peace
from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed:
kindle, we pray, in the hearts of all, the true love of peace
and guide with your pure and peaceable wisdom
those who take counsel for the nations of the earth
that in tranquility your kingdom may go forward,
till the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.Amen
A prayer by Angela Tilby
Merciful and mighty God
Send down your power from on high to quench the rage of war
Burn up the fuel of aggression,
destroy all lying tongues,
suppress the profits of violence,
and, because no one is without sin, unveil our own complicity.
Bear up the broken and defend them under the wings of your protection,
and send the strong peace that comes from above to heal all wounds,
relieve all griefs,
and set all peoples free,
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
