Dear Heavenly Father,
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.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Here are some Bible Verses to meditate on:
Deuteronomy 31:8-9 – The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Matthew 11:28 – Come to me, all who are weary and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Psalm 46:1 – God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
