Prayer for Ukraine

Sovereign Lord, you observe all those who dwell on earth.  Have mercy we pray on those who now suffer the miseries of a war not of their own making.  

Have compassion on the wounded and dying; comfort the broken-hearted; confound the hatred and madness of those who make war; guide our rulers, bring war to an end, bring peace across the world.  

Unite us all under the reign of your Son, the Prince of Peace, before whose judgement seat the rulers of the world will give account, and in whose name we pray.  
The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney,
Kanishka Raffel
