Prayer for Ukraine written for World Day of Prayer (4 March 2022)

 

 

God of the past, the present and the future,

Our thoughts and prayers are with our sisters and brothers in Ukraine and the surrounding countries in their fear and distress

We pray too for all other regions of the world where there is conflict, unrest or oppression.

We pray that
reconciliation will overcome hatred,
peace will conquer war,
hope will replace despair
and that your plans for the world and for us its people will be fulfilled,

God, in your mercy

Hear our prayer.
