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.

A Prayer for Israel and Palestine

O God of all justice and peace we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land.

Be with those who need you in these days of suffering; we pray for people of all faiths - Jews, Muslims and Christians and for all people of the land.

While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to violence and the establishment of peace, we also call for you to bring justice and equity to the peoples.

Guide us into your kingdom where all people are treated with dignity and honour as your children for to all of us you are our Heavenly Father.

In Jesus’ name we pray.



This prayer was written by The Very Revd Canon Richard Swell, Dean of St George's College Jerusalem.


A Prayer for the Sick

Holy Father, 

Holy God we commend into thy safe keeping all those who are sick and in pain.

Be with them in the dark hours to comfort them, to support them and to speak peace to their souls.

Grant to each one a happy issue out of their affliction.

And give to all those who care for them, wisdom and skill, sympathy and patience. 

These things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.


The Creation

Father of creation:
You made all things through love
You spoke with authority and life sprang into being
You made us in your wonderful image to be stewards of your world. Forgive us, Lord:
When we have failed to reflect you
When we have lived with selfish intention, placing our own needs above those of others
When we have misused or polluted creation
When we have acted in a way that has caused disadvantage and hurt.
Help us, Lord, to reflect you:
By being faithful stewards of your creation
By showing love and concern for the world.
May our actions produce lasting fruit,
for the sake of your Kingdom
