Pray for Ukraine

On Sunday 3 April, we are inviting churches and Christians from across Ireland to come together in an act of witness.

Published on 24 March 2022

This is a dark and worrying time. We have seen the heart-breaking stories of people fleeing violence, not knowing when they’ll see their loved ones again. It shouldn't be like this. War and poverty should have no place in our world.

Pray with us on Sunday 3 April

You can join this action in the following ways

Join with Christians across the country by reading out the prayer for Ukraine (below) in your service on 3rd April.

Organise a visible act of witness with other local churches at 2pm.

For more information or to let us know that you are taking part please contact our Church & Community Manager, Dave Thomas.

A prayer for Ukraine

God of all peoples and nations,

Who created all things alive and breathing,

United and whole,

Show us the way of peace that is Your overwhelming presence.

We hold before you the peoples of Ukraine and Russia,

Every child and every adult.

We long for the time

When weapons of war are beaten into ploughshares

When nations no longer lift up sword against nation.

We cry out to you for peace;

Protect those who only desire and deserve to live in security and safety

Comfort those who fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones

Be with those who are bereaved.

Change the hearts of those set on violence and aggression

And fill leaders with the wisdom that leads to peace.

Kindle again in us a love of our neighbour,

And a passion for justice to prevail and a renewed recognition that we all play a part in peace.

Creator of all hear our prayer

And bring us peace. Make us whole.

Amen
