God of the living, you form us and claim us as your own. In trust we pray: 

Give us peace, O God.  

Quell the cries for revenge and the desire for power that fosters war. 

Give us peace, O God.  

Restore life and wholeness to the people in Ukraine. 

Give us peace, O God.  

Calm the spirits of those who fear death. 

Give us peace, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the peace of Christ reign in our hearts, now and forever. Amen.
