Almighty God, bless and guide King Charles III

A prayer at time of war:

Gracious God, whose Son made peace with warring humanity on the cross, by your Spirit confound the work of aggressors,  

limit the harm to life and limb, watch over refugees in every nation, 

and cause your church to stand strong in every land

as communities of truth and hope, 

for the glory of your name. Amen.
