Bishop John has called on all in our diocese to pray for the people of Ukraine and for peace, and for the leaders of the West as they deliberate on how to respond to the terrible unprovoked aggression of Russia. He has invited people to use this prayer from the Dean for public worship and private intercession:
Lord of all the earth, be present with the people of Ukraine at this time of danger, fear, and conflict. Grant that wise and peaceable counsels may yet prevail, and give to all suffering nations the freedom they desire and deserve. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
A Prayer for Peace
Most holy God and Father,
we pray for all who strive for peace
and all who fight for justice.
Help us, who today remember the cost of war,
to work for a better tomorrow; and,
as we commend to you lives lost in terror and conflict,
bring us all, in the end, to the peace of your
presence; through Christ our Lord.
A Prayer in Time of Crisis
A Prayer in Time of Crisis
Jesus, light of the world you promised to be always with us.
Be with our sisters and brothers now, dispelling the darkness of this crisis.
Compel us to be with them too in thought, prayer and solidarity, responding to their suffering with the same compassion you have shown us.
We make this prayer in the firm faith that your light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it.

If you know people who are ill
we entrust to your tender care
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger threatens
your everlasting arms are there to hold them safe.
Especially we hold before you (N…. and N….).
Comfort and heal
and restore them to health and strength;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A version of the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, you are in heaven
and your name is special and wonderful.
May your plans become reality,
and all you desire happen in our world and in yours.
Please give us all we need to get through today.
Forgive us for all we have got wrong,
and help us to do the same for those who hurt us.
Keep us from doing things that are wrong,
and protect us in these hard times.
Everything in heaven and on earth is made by you and belongs to you,
and that’s the way it will be …. Always. Amen
A bedtime prayer
Loving God, you are
always with me.
You are with me in the day and in the night.
You are with me when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
You are with me when I’m healthy and when I am ill.
You are with me when I am peaceful and when I am worried.
Today I am feeling (name how you are feeling) because (reasons you are feeling this way).
especially want to ask you to look after (name the people you want God to help).
Help me to remember that you love me and are with me in everything tonight and always.
