Prayers for those who pray for peace, and keep vigil
We continue to pray together this Community Liturgy – ‘I am for peace’ (page 1066 in Celtic Daily Prayer Book Two) – every day over 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.
A short message from Carolyn Howard, our Welcome and Hospitality Lead at Nether Springs – our mother house – can be viewed below.
TODAY we light the second of our seven candles
- We remember the example of Aidan of Lindisfarne,
and how once the prayers of Aidan averted an attacking army.
- We light a candle for all who pray,
The second candle is lit
that peace may come.
Each day we will post part of the liturgy, as a focus for your prayers.
