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

  1. Prayers are very good right now,
    forever, and amen,
    but we have to look at how
    we could have stopped it then.
    We didn't like the orange hair
    or the Twitter style,
    and in truth were not aware
    of opponent's vacant smile,
    paying off the favours
    of his backing clans,
    emboldening the neighbour
    of a distant land
    who saw the picture stark and clear,
    that aggression did have nowt to fear.

  2. Amen!
    A beautiful and much needed prayer, indeed, Linda.

  3. AMEN! Praying for those caught in this unjustness.

  4. Amen. Thank you for sharing this, Linda. ❤️

  5. Prayer
    It’s our most important offering no matter what’s going on in our troubled world.
