Prayers for the people of the Ukraine and global leaders.

Father God. King of all nations, we cry out to you now for the people of Ukraine. We ask you to rescue those who are vulnerable from the hands of their enemies that they may live without fear before you all their days [Luke 1:74-75]

Kyrie eleison – Lord have mercy.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

Lord of Lords and Prince of peace, thwart the dark machinations of evil. Give wisdom beyond human wisdom to peacemakers seeking an equitable less violent way. May politicians around the world be led by your wisdom, which is peaceable, gentle, willing to yield a full of mercy [James 3:17]

Kyrie eleison – Lord have mercy.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

Holy Spirit, we pray for the church in Ukraine, Give our many brothers and sisters in that nation courage in this crisis that they may proclaim the good news of your kingdom, bind up broken hearts, and bring comfort to all who mourn [Isaiah 61:1-2]

Kyrie eleison – Lord have mercy.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

You Lord, make wars cease to the end of the earth; you break bows, shatter spears, and burn shields with fire [Psalm 46:9] And so we ask you now to save the lives of many people in Ukraine. Make a peace that is strong and not weak. De-escalate this crisis. We hear of wars and rumors of wars [Matt. 24:6], but you Lord are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer. Our hope is in you. And so we address the nations now. In the name of Jesus we say; “Be still and know God! He is exalted among the nations; he shall be exalted in the earth [Psalm 46:10]. 

Kyrie eleison – Lord have mercy.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
