Prayer for peace in Ukraine

Mar 9, 2022

Our hearts are heavy with the news that’s released daily about the war in Ukraine. During a staff meeting last week, our Guest Services Manager, Rose Kurtz, offered this prayer that she discovered. Maybe you have recently lifted up a similar prayer? Will you join us in prayer too?

Prayer for peace in Ukraineprayer for Ukraine

Holy and Gracious God

We pray for the people of Ukraine and the people of Russia; for their countries and their leaders.

We pray for all those who are afraid; that your everlasting arms hold them in this time of great fear.

We pray for all those who have the power over life and death; that they will choose for all people life, and life in all its fullness.

We pray for those who choose war; that they will remember that you direct your people to turn our swords into ploughshares and seek for peace.

We pray for leaders on the world stage; that they are inspired by the wisdom and courage of Christ.

Above all, Lord, today we pray for peace for Ukraine.

And we ask this in the name of your blessed Son.

Lord have mercy.
