For Ukraine, and help for all those who are suffering, grieving, or displaced, because of the evils of war and the destruction wrought by Hurricane Ian.


All-creating God, we thank you for the gift of traditions and festivities that help us remember the deeper meanings of the holy season of Advent. We pray that you replace our anxieties with the calm and the strength of your Holy Spirit. Fill us with energy, O Spirit, to do those things which you would have us do, and teach us to watch well, O God, for the One whose second coming we await, Jesus Christ our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen. 

— Women of the ELCA
