Prayers for Ukraine

In response to the war in Ukraine, Pope Francis has consecrated Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Using some of the beautiful words used during the consecration and homily in St Peter’s Basilica, we join in prayer, accompanied by images and music.

A CAFOD prayer for Ukraine

Loving God,
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
for all those suffering or afraid,
that you will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.

We pray for the world
that in this moment of crisis,
we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.

May we walk in your ways
so that peace and justice
become a reality for the people of Ukraine
and for all the world.
