A Prayer for Ukraine
Almighty God and Father of all,
Look mercifully upon the people of Ukraine in their time of danger, strengthen
the brave and shield the innocent; give their leaders discerning minds to
increase peace and sovereignty throughout their land. In the world,
quicken the nations to provide for their relief, and bring about your
righteousness in every land.
All this we ask through your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
A Prayer for Victims of Gun Violence
We beseech you to hear our sighs, O God,
as we turn to you in deep sorrow,
and receive our supplications for the victims of gun violence.
Send your Holy Spirit, to comfort those in their affliction.
In your loving mercy, forgive our nation for our increasing
indifference to violence, and idolatrous affections.
Grant our citizens the courage to continue our efforts to
forge a more perfection Union in all virtue and righteousness,
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Written by Fr. Copeland for the people of St. Thomas, Bath
