St. Alban the Martyr

A prayer for the people of Ukraine

God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine.
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 all your precious children,
at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them.

Amen.
