Prayer for Peace

July 3, 2022

From Your heart, Holy One,
to the suffering heart of Ukraine,
to a world both beautiful and broken,
pour out, we pray, Your solace to hearts choked with grief;
Your strength, to those shattered by trauma;
to all now in flight, rest in safe shelter;
to all left behind, Your tender presence.
Turn those who seek to dominate and destroy
towards the way of peace, the work of justice.
In trust, we pledge our lives to no more war,
war never again.
May this be so for all Your people
on this day and on every day
held in Your unconditional love.
