A Prayer for Ukraine
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 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.
St Cubertus by Sue Parkington
Written about her favourite church.
Photo taken from happier times when the church was open
“Tis closed”, the old man said,
“Locked and cold within”,
‘Why’s that?’I asked
‘I can’t make sense of thee’.
“Tis the virus; and the Bishops,
So they say,
They’m scared we might get sick.
I’m only ninety three”
‘Let’s chat outside a while’ I said,
Though raining heavily.
“No good”, he said, then added,
“Just come along with me,
‘Tis cosy in the south porch,
And sheltered from the breeze”.
And so we shared our crib there,
Saffron bun and mug of tea.
Keeping social distancing!
A friend and company.
Precious Life (An Acrostic for Easter Time 2020) by Liz Cleves
Perhaps we are listening, and
Remembering what is dear to us
Each of us recollecting Spring times, and the promise of nature bringing its gifts
Conscious too that the beautiful Earth is suffering from our ‘overload’.
In the morning I listen to the robin and the wren guarding my garden, and
Out early I see the mighty sun lift over the horizon
Unfettered and free in it’s course.
Softly I give thanks for all in my care and all that I receive.
Let me give thanks
In every way let me treasure my life and all that is dear to me
Fearing only fear itself and
Enjoying all while I may.
