PRAYER FROM OUR LEADERSHIP

A Prayer for Ukraine

God of all nations, strong, loving, and just, we lean into your compassion and power as we come before you in prayer on behalf of those in Ukraine. From the very beginning, you’ve been at work to bring forth your story of reconciliation, first between us and you, but also between us and our fellow humanity. Just as our hearts grieve for the people of Ukraine, we know that your heart bears their pain and their grief in a way that is full, complete, and perfect.

God of justice, we pray that you would extend your hand of protection and provision to those who are in harm’s way. We pray that your Spirit of comfort and hope would be near to those who suffer in fear. We pray that you’d prompt us and others across the globe to actions of care and support as we work to bring your light and love to the darkness.

We pray that your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, in Christ’s mighty name.

Amen.
