From Archbishops Justin Welby and Stephen CottrellGod of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine and for all your precious children. God of peace and justice we pray for the people of Ukraine today, we pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that Your Spirit of comfort will draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for your precious children, at risk and in fear, that You would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen
