United in Prayer for Ukraine

Mar 29, 2022 by

from Churches Together:

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) is joining with churches and faith-based organisations across Britain and Ireland to invite Christians to join together in an act of witness to pray and light candles for Ukraine, for an end to the conflict and for all those affected by the terrible impact of war.

We have all watched the unfolding conflict in Ukraine and seen the heart-breaking stories of people fleeing violence, not knowing when they’ll see their loved ones again. Over 3.6 million people have fled Ukraine. Many more have been forced from their homes to seek shelter. Lives have been lost and families torn apart. Homes have been destroyed and many roads are blocked. No one is safe.

Churches in Ukraine, in neighbouring countries and here in Britain and Ireland alongside many others in the community have responded with generosity and hospitality to support and welcome refugees. CTBI has been supporting these efforts in the context of our wider work to support all those seeking asylum through the Churches’ Refugee Network and the Church of Sanctuary movement.

We all share a feeling of horror and powerlessness but every prayer, every action, brings hope to the people of Ukraine. We are sharing a prayer that we would invite you to share on 3rd April 2022 during your worship for that Sunday and, if possible, perhaps in a more public event with other churches and your wider community.

Please find below the text of the official #PrayforUkraine prayer to share amongst your leaders, congregations and communities:
