A Prayer for Ukraine
God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace.
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of peace.

Prayer for those Grieving
God of love and mercy,
embrace all those whose hearts today
over flow with grief,
and are feeling such a sense of loss.
Grant them space
to express their tears
and hold them close
through the coming days.
Prayer of Thanks
we thank you for all the good things
you bestow on us,
for creation and
the beauty which surrounds us,
for our families
and our friends,
for all who have shaped our lives
and led us to you.
Prayer for Strength and Peace
You are the light that guides my feet.
You are the map that gives me direction.
You are the peace that makes me strong.
You are the leader whom I faithfully follow.
May your light illuminate my life
and your guidance bring direction.
May I find inspiration in your word
and peace in my heart as I follow you.
