Heartbroken: A Prayer for Ukraine

Our hearts are broken.

Broken by aggression, and violence, and the politics that pursue power and ignore people.

Be with the people, Lord.

Be with peacemakers.

Be with those who are fleeing to safety – mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers.

Be with those welcoming them to safety.

Lord, we ask for peace, for healing of this brokenness, for hope in a world that is strengthened by fraternal bonds.

The Arguments of peace

Are stronger than

Any calculation of

Particular interests and

Confidence in the use

Of weaponry.
