Almighty God,

we pray for the situation in Ukraine.
We pray for those who live in fear, 

that you may grant them peace.
We pray that the voices for discernment

and peaceful solutions may prosper.  

Lord, we ask that you raise up peacemakers

on all sides. Give diplomats wisdom,

understanding and build trust.
We ask for the church in the nations involved,

may they be salt and light in a dark situation.
Lord we lift this dangerous situation to you.

May your kingdom come,

Amen

God of compassion,

through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
