Catch up on the latest news from Liverpool Cathedral for Sunday, 6th March 2022
Welcome from Dean Sue
Welcome to Liverpool cathedral on this the first Sunday in Lent. Today we focus on Christ in the wilderness and the temptations he encountered. Life is full of temptations not least the temptation of power and the need to have power over people. We see this so clearly in the war against Ukraine.
So let us hold in our prays all refugees and all those affected by war.
Prayer for peace in Ukraine
Holy and Gracious God
We pray for the people of Ukraine and the people of Russia; for their countries and their leaders.
We pray for all those who are afraid; that your everlasting arms hold them in this time of great fear.
We pray for all those who have the power over life and death; that they will choose for all people life, and life in all its fullness.
We pray for those who choose war; that they will remember that you direct your people to turn our swords into ploughshares and seek for peace.
We pray for leaders on the world stage; that they are inspired by the wisdom and courage of Christ.
Above all, Lord, today we pray for peace for Ukraine.
And we ask this in the name of your blessed Son.
Lord have mercy.
