02 Mar Praying for Peace
Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd call for prayer
We are all watching the events unfolding in Ukraine with deep concern. Our hearts are with all those who are suffering. We think particularly of Salvation Army officers, soldiers and employees who are serving in Ukraine and Russia. May God grant them his protection and enable them to continue serving those who need them desperately right now.
We also pray for world leaders that they will look to God for wisdom and exercise discernment as they work to negotiate an end to the conflict. For those seeking war, we pray they will instead “turn swords into ploughshares” (Isaiah 2:4) and pursue peace.
As an international Salvation Army, we continue to uphold the principles of compassion, care and service. Even in these dark moments, we trust in God for comfort and strength.
Peace in our time, Lord, we pray.
Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd
