Prayer

Prayer is God’s initiative, a gift which enables us to be attentive to the presence of God in our lives and in the world. It is also a means of expressing what we believe about God and can prompt us to act to change the world as we respond to God’s love.

A Prayer for Ukraine

Prayer for peace in Ukraine (from the UK Methodist Website)

Holy and Gracious God

We pray for the people of the Ukraine and the people of Russia; for their countries and their leaders.

We pray for all those who are afraid; that your everlasting arms hold them in this time of great fear.

We pray for all those who have the power over life and death; that they will choose for all people life, and life in all its fullness.

We pray for those who choose war; that they will remember that you direct your people to turn our swords into ploughshares and seek for peace.

We pray for leaders on the world stage; that they are inspired by the wisdom and courage of Christ.

Above all, Lord, today we pray for peace for Ukraine.

And we ask this in the name of your blessed Son.

Lord have mercy.

Amen

A Prayer

Dear Lord, You are my very best friend.

You are always there to listen to me and to share with me your wisdom.

Lord, thank you for guiding my steps each day and thank you for helping me walk the right path.

You pull me through the rough times and build me up again.

Thank you for staying close to me.

In Jesus’ name,

AMEN.
