Useful Prayer

x

What do we ask

For Ukraine

And for Russia?

Pious, frankly useless things

That everyone be safe

That the war stop now

That hearts and minds

Be changed

Well, that last one we can work on

We know you can work on

Done through truth,

Sometimes through righteous prophecy

Sometimes in dreams

x

Change minds and hearts, then,

Lord

Help us to change ours

Help us to change theirs

‘Til ours and theirs are one

In peace

Not because sides win

But because in being made

And set to live,

All sides are one

x

Yes, and to keep folk safe

To stop the war right now,

Because miracles

Are nonetheless

And notwithstanding
