Prayers for this week

Life-giving God,
heal our lives,
that we may acknowledge your wonderful deeds
and offer you thanks from generation to generation
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle, aiding Christians to pray for those of faith around the world.

Prayer for Eastern Europe:

Hear us, O God.
We pray for an end to the suffering of the refugees,
for strength and resilience for the victims,
for peace and justice in the warring nations,
for courage and perseverance to those helping the afflicted,
for wisdom and compassion for the nations receiving the influx of the refugees,
through Jesus Christ your suffering servant.
Amen.
