Prayer for the Ukraine

We are keeping a candle burning in the Epiphany House Chapel for the country of Ukraine and its people as a sign of hope, peace, and solidarity in this fragile time.

Dear Jesus

Lord, we bring the people, the land and all that belongs to the Ukraine before You.

You, alone, can bring peace, justice and healing to a land besieged by an aggressor and turn curses into blessings.

We ask for Your peace, that peace that surpasses all understanding, to flood the Ukraine: that where there is violence and chaos, Your angels stand between aggressor and victim – that attacks miss their mark and are rendered harmless; that courage rises and stands its ground; that wisdom speaks into receptive ears; and that pride becomes convinced of Your forgiveness and mercy.

Help them, Lord. Save them according to Your mercy, which knows no limits.

May all know that You are at work, both in the small miracles You do, for individuals in the Ukraine, and how You can change Nations in a moment.

May the world see You, Lord, as You stand up for and protect the oppressed and turn the tide against Goliath with your favourite, your chosen David.

May Your wonderful will be done in the Ukraine, Lord, just as it is in Heaven. May we hear and say ‘Amen’ to the prayers of the people in the Ukraine and the prayers You want, Lord Jesus, for the Ukraine.

And we bless all those in the Ukraine now and in the future:

“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

In the mighty name of Jesus,
