Prayer for Peace and Justice in Ukraine

God of peace and justice, who change the hardened heart
and break the power of violence, 
we entrust the people of Ukraine to you.
Protect them in this time of mortal peril;
let them know not death but life, not slavery but freedom.
You are Father of all; we are brothers and sisters.
Give us the strength to live that truth in love,
choosing peace not war.

Through Christ our Lord.
