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,

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid, in isolation
or concerned about their jobs and businesses
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
