“O Lord, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, this day we stand together before Your face and thank You for the gift of freedom, independence, restoration of the Ukrainian State. We ask You today: save, O God, Your people and bless Your inheritance, our people, our government, our Army. Hear the cry, the lamentation of Your people of Ukraine. Give victory to the Ukrainian Army over the unjust Russian occupier and aggressor. Bless our volunteers and doctors. Bless all those who save the human life given by You. Today we beg You for our brothers and sisters in the occupied territories, in the war zone. We plead to You for displaced persons and refugees, for all those to whom the war has inflicted deep wounds.

O, Lord, You are our Savior, the only physician of our souls and bodies, save us today! In Your fortitude, Ukraine is and will be Your invincible State!

O, Mother of God, we give our Motherland under Your protection today. Cover it with your honest omophorion. Mother of God, Kyiv Oranta, pray for Your people! Amen.”
