Almighty God, who made light shine in the dome of the sky and saw that it was good: In the course of our day, we gaze at tranquil skies as fire and death rain from Ukraine skies. May this violation of your purposes, and our horror at its costs in injury and loss of life, impel us to do all we can to create structures of mutual understanding and security in our world designed to make war scarcer and scarcer until, by your grace, we forget the very word. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
