A Prayer for Ukraine

24 Feb 2022

24 February 2022

It is with deep sadness that we pray for peace
and for the people of Ukraine.

God who sees the weakness
in acts of naked aggression;
God who feels the fear
in moments of acute helplessness:
cure our warring madness,
and shield all who fall in harm’s way.
Leach the poison from any mind
that thinks strength is shown
in a bullying force.
May an equal strength in solidarity
give resolve to those
whose aim is to protect, and respect,
not just the ones we call our own,
but all with whom we can share
a better, more peaceful world.
