Prayers for Ukraine
A statement by Archbishops (Justin Welby & Stephen Cottrell) “The horrific and unprovoked attach on Ukraine is an act of great evil. Placing our trust in Jesus Christ, the author of peace, we pray for an urgent ceasefire and a withdrawal of Russian forces. We call for a public decision to choose the way of peace and an international conference to secure long term agreements for stability and lasting peace“. Dated 24th February 2022. You can pray the prayer for the Ukraine here.
