Praying for peace

Almighty God we pray for the situation on the border of Ukraine.
We pray for those who live in fear, that you may grant them peace.
We pray that the voices for discernment and peaceful solutions may prosper.
Lord, we ask that you raise up peacemakers on all sides, that war and violence might be averted.
Give diplomats wisdom, understanding and build trust.
We ask for the church in the nations involved, may they be salt and light in a dark situation.
Lord we lift this dangerous situation to you.
May your kingdom come,
Amen.

Prayer by Fred Drummond, Evangelical Alliance Scotland and prayer direct

For justice and understanding, we pray.

For realism about our actions, we pray.

For repentance for our complicity. we pray.

For sense and recognition of our shared humanity on this beautiful, tender, fragile earth, we pray

For Peace
 


Of Confession and Forgiveness
God in your love be good to me.
God in your mercy blot out my offences.
Wash me clean from all my guilt and cleanse me from my sin.
God create in me a pure heart,
A new spirit. A stronger faith. A greater love.
When i am faced with the greatness of your love,
I realise how far short i fall in comparison to you.
My life should be a reflection of your love.
Love should be the basis of my living.
Yet i become more concerned with myself than putting you first, doing your will and thinking of others.
Yet in your love for me, though i often fail, you are always there ready to give me a new start.
Thank you for that.
I ask for your forgiveness
To help me to begin again with a love like yours.
Amen

An Offering
Lord we give our ourselves, our time, our wealth, gifts, graces and talents.
Use them according to your will.
Lord, we give you our pasts and ask for your forgiveness.
We give you our present time and ask for your guidance.
We give you our futures. In you do we trust and hope.


A prayer of St Francis of Assisi
