Prayers for any who enable the silenced to be heard, their pain articulated, and their story told
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.
TODAY we light the fourth of our seven candles
- We applaud the example of Adamnan of Iona,
who opposed the exploiting of women, and
campaigned for the freeing of prisoners of war.
- We pray for all who speak out
for those whose voice cannot be heard,
the silenced and abused.
- We light a candle…
The fourth candle is lit
for those whose passion
is to enable the silenced to be heard, their pain
articulated, and their story told.
Each day we will post part of the liturgy, as a focus for your prayers.
