Prayer for Ukraine (II)

O Lord God of powers, and God of our salvation, O God, who alone work wonders:
look down with mercy and compassion on Your humble servants,
and out of love for mankind hearken and have mercy on us and on the land of Ukraine.

Visit Your mercies and compassions upon Your humble servants,
those who defend Ukraine and her much-suffering people,
and hear us who fall down before Your deep compassion.

For You are the health and victory and salvation of them that put their hope in You,
and unto You do we send up glory: to the Father,
and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever,
and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
