Join us in praying and working for peace in Ukraine.

Compassionate God,

We pray for all those who suffer or perpetuate violence in Ukraine as we invoke the words of Psalm 29: "May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!" (Psalm 29:11)

That those with the power to end violent conflict will heed your call to turn swords into plowshares and negotiate a peaceful resolution.

   v May the Lord give strength to his people.
   v May the Lord bless his people with peace.

Bring comfort and healing to the wounded. Bring courage and strength to their caregivers.

   v May the Lord give strength to his people. May the Lord bless his people with peace.

For all in Ukraine who live in fear. Cloak them in safety and security, and fill them with your peace.

   v May the Lord give strength to his people. May the Lord bless his people with peace.

Grant eternal rest to those who have died. Be with their families and loved ones in this time of sorrow.

   v May the Lord give strength to his people. May the Lord bless his people with peace.

We ask all these things in your name.

Amen
