Prayer Offered for March 3, 2022

God of infinite mercy and goodness, we pray for the people of Ukraine, including my many relatives, during these days of conflict.

Bless the leaders with the wisdom, vision, and perseverance to build a world of justice and solidarity.

To You we entrust all those who live in fear for their lives. May they not yield to discouragement and despair, but become heralds of new hope to one another in these extraordinarily challenging times.

Inspire all of us to oneness of heart and mind, so that the walls of hostility and division can be eliminated. May we work generously for the common good, respecting the dignity and fundamental rights of every person.

May Your voice resound in our hearts, as You call on us to follow the path of reconciliation and peace.

We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
