Dear Methodists of Park County and beyond,
As war continues in Ukraine we need to continue to pray. Today the UMC put out a new hymn written by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette in response to the war in Ukraine. It is sung to the tune of “This Is my Song.” May it be a guide for us to pray.
WE PRAY FOR PEACE
We pray for peace, O God of love and justice,
as once again, we face a time of war.
The meek and humble try — amid the crisis --
to love and build, to nurture and restore.
May leaders hear the truth the prophets teach us --
that gifts of peace are well worth struggling for.
We pray for peace, O Christ who calmed the waters --
who stilled the storm, who stilled disciples’ fear.
You spoke with love and with amazing power;
be with us now when trouble is so near.
May leaders see the miracle you offer --
that words and deeds can calm the nations here.
We pray for peace, O Spirit here among us;
your love emboldens, judges, and restrains.
Take any hate and acts of impulse from us;
make leaders wise, amid competing claims.
May we seek peace, O God of love and justice;
may love and mercy be our highest aims.
