A Special Prayer for the Crisis in Ukraine
The Changing Reflections of Mary (Mark 16: v1-8) - By Daphne Kitching
Our eyes seeing the same mountains, The gentle touching of our hands, Simply breathing the same air, Pleasures unrecognised till now, Gone…. In the changing.
In the certainty of our grieving, You surprise us, Lord, You are not where we know that you should be. In the moving of the stone, Lord, You surprise us, In our sorrow, we don’t see Your victory.
But you told us, Lord, Prepared us for the changing, In your grace, foretold the triumph of Your death. In the changing from despair to resurrection You surprise us and transform us By rebirth.
Our opened eyes can see beyond the mountains, Now we’re held forever in Your arms, The air we breathe is Your life-giving Spirit, Gloriously given……. In the changing.
To Pray for
Peace among all nations - and an end to the devestating war between the Ukraine and Russia
Those in pain and suffering
Seperation from loved ones
The families and friends of those killed in the mass shooting in America
