Prayer for Ukraine

God of peace and justice,

we pray of the people of Ukraine today.

We pray for peace and 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.

Our Lady, Queen of peace, pray for us.

Thank you to the Monitor for covering this most special occasion!
