What is prayer? A conversation with God – as both our Lord and a friend….

A Prayer for Now

Loving God and Father, we pray for world peace and for all those affected by the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, Israel and Hamas and with the Houthis in Yemen and the Red Sea.

Give wisdom to leaders of the nations that they may all be a force for good on the earth.

Sustain the anxious and fearful and renew them with courage from on high. Comfort all worried families whose loved ones are in danger. Surround them with your love, protect them from all harm.

Be alongside, heal and protect the sick, the wounded and the refugees, in the name of our Lord Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen
