Christian World Communions invite to prayer for Ukraine on Ash Wednesday

The Russian military assault on Ukraine threatens peace in Europe and indeed the whole world. This urgent and evolving crisis requires the attention and solidarity of the global Christian community.

As the Psalmist reminds us “to seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14) we issue a call for prayer for the people of Ukraine and the region. Peace must prevail. As a sign of global solidarity with the people and churches of Ukraine, the Conference of European Churches, the Lutheran World Federation, the World Communion of Reformed Churches, and the World Methodist Council, issue an invitation to an online prayer service for Ukraine on Ash Wednesday – March 2 at 17:00 CET. The prayer will include listening to voices from Ukraine.
