Prayers for Ukraine

Bishop Oulton writes to us: The world has become a more dangerous and uncertain place today with the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by the military of the Russian Federation. We have been upholding the people of Ukraine in our prayers along with those working tirelessly to seek diplomatic solutions that would avoid armed aggression and the maelstrom such actions inevitably unleash.

Here are some prayers for peace in our world, peace in Ukraine.

ALMIGHTY God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed: Kindle, we pray, in the hearts of all people, 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; we pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

ALMIGHTY God and merciful Father, who would have the kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ: Bestow your blessing, we beseech you, upon all who labour for peace and righteousness, especially the people of Ukraine and Russia; that the day may be hastened when war shall be no more, and your will only shall govern the nations upon earth; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
