God of peace, we pray for the people of Ukraine, for all who are caught up in violence and war, for all those suffering and afraid, that you will protect them and strengthen them. We pray for world leaders, for wisdom, integrity and compassion, that you will guide their feet in the way of justice and reconciliation. We pray for church leaders, for discernment, determination and courage, that they may speak words of truth and righteousness. We pray for the people of Russia, for all those who plead for an end to violence and conflict, for all those who are persecuted for speaking against aggression, that you will console, support and guard them. We ask for comfort for those who mourn, hope for those who despair, forgiveness for those who commit violence, and mercy for all who suffer. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace. Amen.
