Prayers for Ukraine - updated 24th March 

From the Bishop of Blackburn (22nd March) prayer opportunities...
First, the Diocese in Europe are holding a half-hour Vigil and Service of Prayer for Ukraine via Zoom each Wednesday until 13 April, at 5pm GMT, to which all are invited. Each vigil will include testimony from some part of the diocese affected directly by the crisis. Full details can be found at: Prayers for Peace in Ukraine - Every Wednesday - Latest News (anglican.org)

Second, there is an international initiative for Christians in different countries of the world to stop at different hours of the day to pray for peace, so that there is a continuous chain of prayer through the day. Christians in the UK are invited to stop what they are doing at 3pm each day to pray. This idea is based on an initiative by an adviser to Winston Churchill during the dark days of the Second World War. You may like to use my prayer, repeated at the end of this letter, at this time.

All Age Prayers
APray for Ukrainet our all age service (27th February), we asked children and families to write prayers for Ukraine. If you are unsure how to pray for Ukraine, we hope these prayers can inspire you in your own prayer.

Day 1 Day 3
Day 2 Day 4
Day 5 Day 6



The Diocesan prayer for Ukraine is...
Almighty God, seated above all the affairs of humankind and sovereign over nations and leaders, hear our prayer for Ukraine at this time of war; that lives may be spared, that national boundaries be respected and that forces of aggression be restrained. Grant, Lord God, peace in your world in our time. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
