We encourage you to pause and pray slowly through the Lord’s prayer, as you stand in prayer alongside all who are caught up in the tragedy of war.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.

Please pray

  • For safety and continued wisdom for CMS people in mission: Anya, Valery and Alison
  • For President Putin to turn from warmongering
  • For godly wisdom for all leaders in how to respond
