Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine,
for all those suffering or afraid,
that you will be close to them and protect them.
We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom
to guide their choices.
We pray for the world that in this moment of
crisis, we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.
May we walk in your ways
so that peace and justice become a reality for the
people of Ukraine and for all the world. Amen.
