A Prayer for the People of Ukraine

Gracious God, we pray for the people of Ukraine suffering from war.

May they be held in your loving care and protection and given the strength to endure their suffering and hardship.

Transform the hearts and minds of those who perpetuate the violence and oppression.

Grant wisdom to world leaders in advancing efforts toward peace; may they not be compromised by self-interest and blind indifference.

We ask all this through the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and in the name of your Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

Prayer of the Parish of Unanderra

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
with the heavenly protection of Mary,
conceived without sin, may my life this day
be guided away from all that would harm me,
may the community of faith that I belong to continue to grow,
may we all, young and old,
remain close to the Saviour every day.
I offer myself, all my actions, words and hopes,
to the glory of God, and to the service of others.
May I hear the word of the Lord with joy
and may I be generous in responding to the will of God.
