Prayers and reflections

A prayer for Ukraine

God of all,

with alarm and concern we bring before you
the Russian Invasion and war in Ukraine.

In a world you made for peace and flourishing,
we lament the use of armed force.

We mourn every casualty of this conflict,
every precious life extinguished by war.
We pray comfort for those who grieve
and those who are fearful.

Hear our longing that leaders and nations
will honour the worth of all people
by having the courage
to resolve conflict through dialogue.

May all our human failings be transformed
by your wonderful grace and goodness.

We ask this in the name of Christ,
the author of peace and sustainer of Creation.

Amen.

A prayer for our church

God of Mission who alone brings growth to your Church,

send your Holy Spirit to give vision to our planning, wisdom to our actions, and Power to our witness.

Help our church to grow in numbers, in spiritual commitment to you, and in service to our local community.

Lord of all, as you walked this earth sharing love, grace and mercy,

We pray that we will place our footsteps in yours and walk where you lead as we live out our life in our daily living

For Jesus’ sake. Amen
