Catholic Prayer For Ukraine (And Free Prayer Printables!)

Ukraine is in need of prayers and help right now in light of the current war, and this free printable prayer pack was created as a way to help facilitate families to easily pray for Ukraine. If you display these printables in your home, or keep the prayer card in a place you see it each day, it can prompt you to pray for the people of Ukraine often. So let’s take a look at the Catholic prayer for Ukraine and printable prayer resources. 

About Ukrainian Greek Catholics

About 9% of Ukraine is Ukrainian Greek Catholic, which is in full union with Rome. Roman Catholics are not the only type of Catholics, and to understand this better, be sure to check out our article on Eastern Catholics 101

You can also read about many of the most loved Ukrainian Greek Catholic devotions here, which includes the story of Our Lady of Zarvanytsia. The prayer included in this printable pack as well as several of the art pieces included are of Our Lady of Zarvanytsia. 

This is especially dangerious and horrific for the Ukrainian Catholics as their faith was literally outlawed under Russian control. Now is the time to unite with Ukraine, pray for them, and stand with them in every way we can! 

Catholic Prayer For Ukraine

O Lord our God, look down with mercy on the Ukrainian people. Protect and save them from the unjust aggressors who seek to subdue them. Grant them steadfast trust in your mercy and protection. 

O Mother of God, who gave us your miraculous icon at Zarvanytsia, intercede for the Ukrainian people, who run to the shelter of your mercy in their times of need. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Grant peace and protection to the people of Ukraine. Give them strength and courage to defend what is good, right, and holy. Keep them safe from harm and provide for all their needs, both temporal and spiritual. 

Hear our prayers, O Lord, and deliver us from distress, for You are merciful and compassionate and love mankind. To You we give glory: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer written by Carrie Chuff, a Ukrainian Greek Catholic mom and contributing writer at Catholic Icing.

  1. Thank you Lacey, Angie, Carrie and Jenna! My heart is breaking for these people and their neighboring countries.

  2. Blessings to you Lacey and team. These free printables will help my children who are extremely worried for their sponsored child and family in the Ukraine. It is great to have something tangible they can use to pray with.

  3. Thank you so much! I just wanted to double check – is it okay to print multiple prayer cards to give out to my child’s classmates/my own students?
    Thank you so much for making these available.

  4. I’m wondering about the other artwork in the packet, other than the Our Lady of Zarvanytsia. Do you know the title or can you tell us anything more about it?

  5. Thank you for creating this! I know it says in the file not to copy and distribute, but I didn’t know if it would be okay to print just the prayer cards to give my children’s classes? I want to be respectful of your copyright. Thanks!

  6. These are fantastic, what a great add-on to our homeschool curriculum today. Praying for Ukraine and the conversion of Russia (and all world leaders, for that matter). THANK YOU!
