Prayers for the people of Ukraine

On Thursday 24th February, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, called on all Anglicans to hold in prayer the people and churches of Ukraine, those attacked, those injured, those fleeing as refugees and those killed. Their prayer reads:

"God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace,  for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, Prince of Peace. Amen."
