Prayer for Ukraine

24/02/2022
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell have condemned the Russian attack on Ukraine as “an act of great evil”. The archbishops are urging Christians to make this Sunday a special day of prayer for Ukraine, Russia and for peace. They are also joining the Pope in supporting a global day of prayer and fasting for peace on Ash Wednesday.

The Conference of European Churches invites us to join an online prayer service on Ash Wednesday, 2 March at 16.00 (GMT). The service will bring together Christians from Ukraine and other parts of the world, seeking peace and an end to the ongoing conflict. Register to join [HERE].

A Prayer for Ukraine

God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the 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.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Amen

Archbishop Justin Welby
Archbishop Stephen Cottrell

 

The Rector is reminded of some verses from Psalm 76:

[The] earth trembled and was still,
when God arose to judgement,
to save all the meek upon earth

and [bridle] the wrathful remnant.

He breaks down the spirit of princes
and strikes terror in the kings of the earth.

The Rector hopes and prays that President Putin knows and heeds these words, as the violent intentions and actions of empire-builders and dictators can neither ever lastingly overcome the power of God’s Kingdom and nor prevent his providence towards the peace-makers ‘who will inherit the earth’.

A Litany for these Times

Send forth your strength, O God,
establish what you have wrought in us.
Good Lord, hear us.

Uphold all those who fall
and raise up those who are bowed down.
Good Lord, hear us.

Open the eyes of the blind
and set the prisoners free.
Good Lord, hear us.

Sustain the orphan and widow
and give food to those who hunger.
Good Lord, hear us.

Grant them the joy of your help again
and sustain them with your Spirit.
Good Lord, hear us.

O Lord, judge the peoples
and take all nations for your own.
Good Lord, hear us.

O Lord, answer us in the day of trouble,
send us help from your holy place.
Good Lord, hear us.

Show us the path of life,
for in your presence is joy.
Good Lord, hear us.

Give justice to the orphan and oppressed
and break the power of wickedness and evil.
Good Lord, hear us.

Look upon the hungry and sorrowful
and grant them the help for which they long.
Good Lord, hear us.

Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad;
may your glory endure for ever.
Good Lord, hear us.

Your kingship has dominion over all
and with you is our redemption.
Good Lord, hear us.
