  • Let us pray for the people in Ukraine

    Gracious God and Lord, almighty and ever faithful, we join with Christians around the world in fervent prayer for the people of Ukraine.  We pray for the end of military aggression, for the laying down of weapons, and for peace.  We pray for all those in Ukraine who struggle today and fear for tomorrow.  We pray for all your precious children at risk that you would draw near to them and protect them; for the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever.  Amen.
