Loving God, 

We pray for the people of Ukraine, 

for all those suffering or afraid, 

that you will be close to them and protect them. We pray for world leaders, 

for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their  choices.

we may reach out in solidarity 

to our brothers and sisters in need. 

May we walk in your ways 

so that peace and justice 

become a reality for the people of Ukraine and for all the world.
