A CALL TO PRAYER FROM THE NORTHUMBRIA COMMUNITY

THE EVOLVING SITUATION IN UKRAINE

Today’s breaking news about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a call to prayer and so, alone together, as Companions and Friends of the Northumbria Community across the world we respond to that call to pray.

We take this Community Liturgy – ‘I am for peace’ (page 1066 in Celtic Daily Prayer Book Two) – which we commit to pray over the next seven days (and beyond).  In doing so, as we light these daily candles, we pray for, and with, our brothers and sisters in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, other neighbouring countries and all affected by the consequences of this war.

Each day we will post part of the liturgy, as a focus for your prayers.

Please do share or retweet this post, and perhaps share a photo of your candle/ you lighting your candle wherever you feel is appropriate as a sign of your commitment to pray and a sign that we stand together for all those caught up in this conflict.
