As we continue to watch the senseless violence of war unfold in Ukraine, the Florida Conference is called to act through the prayer below for peace and the people of Ukraine and through giving.
 
God, we unite our hearts as one in prayer for the people of Ukraine. We weep with you over the violence of war that has erupted in their country. Let the hardened hearts of international leaders that are embracing, supporting, or encouraging this violence soften. Help them see the horrific results and consequences of war and be moved to an immediate and peaceful end to it.
Our hearts break for every person now living in overwhelming fear because war has moved from threat to reality. We can only imagine the prayers the people of Ukraine are praying right now...prayers for peace, prayers of mourning, prayers for help. Help us Lord - help me - be part of answering their prayers. Help us be part of letting them know they are not alone. We lift up all of those suffering from this violence and we lift them up to you...in the name of Your Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
 
Please PRAY and GIVE through the Florida Conference of the UMC to help Ukraine refugees fleeing to Poland (so far, at least 280,000 Ukrainian refugees have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border, most of them mothers with children.) 100% of your gift will go right away to United Methodist Churches in Poland on the front lines of this refugee humanitarian crisis as they assist with food, clothing, places to stay, etc. We can let them and those they are serving know they are not alone.
