United in Prayer for Ukraine: 24-26 February

On Friday 24th February it will be one year since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the beginning of a year of war. Tens of thousands of lives have been lost.

Millions of peaceful people have been displaced. Lives turned upside down and inside out.

The war carries on every day. Lives are lost every day.

Tears flow every day. Pain upon pain every day.

Churches across Britain and Ireland are joining together in an act of witness to pray again for Ukraine on Sunday 26th of February, for an end to the conflict and for all those affected by the terrible impact of war. This act of witness will stand in solidarity with national services being organised with Churches Together in Britain & Ireland, Churches Together in England and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on the 24th of February. This ecumenical service will have voices from across the UK, including our Ukrainian community.

Prayer for Ukraine

Almighty and Great God, accept our gratitude for your boundless mercy towards us. Hear the supplication of our afflicted hearts for the land and people of Ukraine, as they confront foreign aggression and invasion. Open the eyes of those who have been overtaken by a spirit of deception and violence, that they be horrified by their works. Grant victory over the powers of evil that have arisen and bless Ukraine with your gifts of liberty, peace, tranquility, and good fortune.

We implore you, O Merciful God, look with grace upon those who courageously defend their land. Remember the mothers and fathers, the innocent children, widows and orphans, the disabled and helpless, those seeking shelter and refuge, who reach out to you and to their

fellow human beings looking for mercy and compassion. Bless the hearts of those who have already shown great generosity and solidarity, and those who prepare to receive their Ukrainian brothers and sisters in Ukraine’s greatest time of need. Bring us together as your children, your creation, and instill in us your strength, wisdom and understanding. May you be praised and glorified, now and forever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
