Lord Jesus Christ,
we cry out to you in shock and grief
for the lives lost to unthinkable violence
in the sky above the Ukraine
and in the homes and streets of Gaza and Israel.
Wherever deadly hate is in people’s hearts,
come and disarm the violent 
with your words of peace and acts of forgiveness.
Wherever people are weeping
for their shattered communities or their beloved friends,
come and plant seeds of hope
with your promise of resurrection life
and a new creation.
Come, Lord Jesus.

This prayer very helpful, and eloquently covered everything I tried to pray.
