Prayers & Thanksgiving

This page is dedicated to prayers for family, friends, and all humanity.  We pray for the healing power of our Lord for all.  Also, to give Thanks for the many blessings of this life.

The Lord’s Prayer in Ukrainian:

Від Матвія 6:9-13

Ви ж моліться отак: Отче наш, що єси на небесах! Нехай святиться Ім’я Твоє,

10 нехай прийде Царство Твоє, нехай буде воля Твоя, як на небі, так і на землі.

11 Хліба нашого насущного дай нам сьогодні.

12 І прости нам довги наші, як і ми прощаємо винуватцям нашим.

13 І не введи нас у випробовування, але визволи нас від лукавого. Бо Твоє є царство, і сила, і слава навіки. Амінь.

 

A Prayer for Ukraine

God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them.

We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Amen.

Archbishop Justin Welby

Archbishop Stephen Cottrell

 

Pope John Paul II’s Prayer for Peace

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace,
who are yourself our peace and reconciliation,
who so often said, “Peace to you,” grant us peace.

Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice,
and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.

Enlighten our rulers that they may
guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May all peoples on the earth
become as brothers and sisters.
May longed for peace blossom forth
and reign always over us all.

– Pope John Paul II

 

A Prayer attributed to St. Francis

Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is
hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where
there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where
there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where
there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may not so much seek to
be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is
in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we
are born to eternal life.  Amen.  BCP 833

 

For all of us in our daily lives.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
