Church Open on Wednesdays for Community Prayer for Ukraine
The Waquoit sanctuary will be open to the public to pray for peace for Ukraine every Wednesday from 12 noon to 1 pm. The public is welcome to come in anytime during that hour to pray, light a candle, and sign cards of peace and hope that will be sent to Ukrainians refugees.
“People want to help the Ukrainian people. We’ve done fundraisers, we’ve sent supplies over there, but there is still an ongoing need to make a difference. What better way than to offer a place and space to pray?” said Linda Lynch, Waquoit Church’s head deacon.
The church will provide a variety of interfaith prayers aimed at peace, not only for Ukraine, but also for our country, community, and the self. There are also prayer prompts to encourage people to pray for children caught in the war, creation, and leaders – especially Russian president Putin that his heart might be changed. The public is welcome to take these prayers home with them.
“There’s so much stress and anxiety right now,” said Ms. Lynch. “We hope this place and time of prayer will help people feel more grounded and at peace.”
