Prayer for May

 

We continue to pray for Ukraine

 

Loving Father,

Daily we see scenes of devastation in Ukraine.

But we don’t always see the impact on lives far from the conflict.

 

In many African countries,

including our link diocese of Kagera in Tanzania,

the impact of Covid-19, conflict, and drought

have robbed people of the power to feed their children.

 

The war in Ukraine is pushing the price of food and fuel up.

Without fertiliser, wheat, sunflower seeds and oil,

vulnerable families will be pushed even deeper into hunger.

 

We pray that during Christian Aid week this month,

the plight of the vulnerable will become visible.

That people will respond with generosity to the appeal.

That prayers, donations and actions will turn hunger into hope.

Amen
