Isaiah 14:3-7The LORD will give the people of Israel relief from their pain and suffering, and from the hard work they were forced to do. When he does this, they are to mock the king of Babylonia and say:
“The cruel king has fallen! He will never oppress anyone again! The LORD has ended the power of the evil rulers who angrily oppressed the peoples and never stopped persecuting the nations they had conquered. Now at last the whole world enjoys rest and peace, and everyone sings for joy. The cypress trees and the cedars of Lebanon rejoice over the fallen king, because there is no one to cut them down, now that he is gone!"
Let us say with one voice that the invasion of Ukraine is wrong, evil and must end.
Let us be of one mind that God is sovereign and will end the power of the aggressor.
Let us have a united hope that the Peace of Christ will bring about joy, rest and peace will inhabit the whole earth.
Let us declare together relief from the pain and suffering.
Prayer. Oh God of justice and mercy, we intercede for Ukraine once more. Peace. Peace. Peace.
