Prayer for Protection of Those Under Threat

As we Pray for Ukraine: A Prayer for Protection of Those Under Threat

God of Love and Compassion: We have come to ask for your protection for a people and a nation invaded by the machinery of war. We pray for those who flee to safety with the most vulnerable, even as they tearfully leave behind husbands and wives, daughters and sons who choose to defend their country and their homes. As they face the myriad challenges and decisions that each day is destined to bring, may they be anchored by their faith, protected by your presence, and comforted by the knowledge that they are loved by you and by a world-wide community of support. We bless them in your name, and look forward to an end to this conflict, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
