A Prayer for Peace and Salvation in Ukraine and Russia

Dear Lord,

We lift up the conflict between Ukraine and Russia to You and pray for an end to the fighting and violence. We pray for peace to be established in the hearts of all those involved, and for wisdom and discernment for those in positions of leadership.

We pray for the salvation of the people of Ukraine and Russia, that they may come to know You and find hope and healing in You. We pray that Your love would be shared among all people and that Your church would be a beacon of light in these nations.

We pray for Your protection over all those who are suffering and for Your comfort to be with them in their time of need. We pray that Your will be done in this situation and that Your kingdom would come in and through it.

We offer this prayer to You, Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
