A Prayer for Peace
The ‘Prayer for Peace’ has been produced in response to the invasion of Ukraine, with members of the Scottish Church Leaders Forum, including Bishop Mark Strange, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, standing in solidarity with all those who face the perils of war and the fear that ensues when the bonds of peace are broken.
Living God,
Creator and giver of life to all people:
We ask that you would hear our prayer for peace amongst the nations
And for ending of conflict in Ukraine.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Living God,
Who shall judge between the nations:
We ask that that you would lead the nations in the paths of peace
And that the dividing wall of hostility would be broken down.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Living God,
Who has inspired faith across the ages:
Grant peace in the midst of war
And bring harmony to the commonwealth of nations.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Living God,
Who gave his only Son that we might have life:
We ask that you would pour out your Holy Spirit
And inspire in us hope that peace will be renewed.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
