We pray for:

  • all who are ill in hospital, waiting for tests, results or surgery

  • all who have been bereaved, especially any known to us

  • all affected by the cost of living crisis

  • a loving society where all are welcome and can know God’s love for them

  • the people of Ukraine as the war continues. We seek a world where peace and justice thrive

  • all NHS and emergency service workers

  • the people of Northern Italy experiencing devastating floods while wildfires rage in Spain. We pray for wisdom across our world as climate change effects cause such catastrophes and that we can all work towards Net ‘0’ now. We pray for the meeting on Wednesday when we can hear of how we can be part of the solution.

  • We pray for peace in the country of Sudan

  • We pray for all taking exams at this time.


A prayer from the Methodist church, 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 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 is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;

He burns the shields with fire.
“Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

Psalm 46, v1 & v9-11
