Prayer for Peace

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.
