The Lord’s Prayer in Ukrainian

Отче наш, що єси на небесах! 

Нехай святиться ім'я Твоє, 

хай прийде Царство Твоє, 
нехай буде воля Твоя, 
як на небі, так і на землі. 
Хліб наш насущний дай нам сьогодні. 
І прости нам провини наші,
І не введи нас у спокусу,
Бо Твоє є царство,
Give us this day our daily bread;

як і ми прощаємо винуватцям нашим. 

але визволи нас від лукавого. 

і сила, і слава навіки. Амінь.

Prayers for Ukraine.

A message from Deacon Stephen Roe - we think today of the situation in Ukraine following the invasion by Russia. Not only are we concerned for all those directly involved at the moment, but fear for the potential consequences for the whole world. 

Here are two prayers you may like to use to pray for peace in Ukraine.

Holy and Gracious God

We pray for the people of the Ukraine and the people of Russia; for their countries and their leaders.

We pray for all those who are afraid; that your everlasting arms hold them in this time of great fear.

We pray for all those who have the power over life and death; that they will choose for all people life, and life in all its fullness.

We pray for those who choose war; that they will remember that you direct your people to turn our swords into ploughshares and seek for peace.

We pray for leaders on the world stage; that they are inspired by the wisdom and courage of Christ.

Above all, Lord, today we pray for peace for Ukraine.

And we ask this in the name of your blessed Son.

Lord have mercy.



God of all,

with alarm and concern we bring before you

the military intervention in Ukraine.

In a world you made for peace and flourishing,

we lament the use of armed force.

We mourn every casualty of this conflict,

every precious life extinguished by war.

We pray comfort for those who grieve

and those who are fearful.

Hear our longing that leaders and nations

will honour the worth of all people

by having the courage

to resolve conflict through dialogue.

May all our human failings be transformed

by your wonderful grace and goodness.

We ask this in the name of Christ,

the author of peace and sustainer of Creation.
