Prayer for the People of Ukraine

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
