Please read Day of Mourning Declared in Ukraine as Violence Worsens, by
Amanda Casanova, at Religion Today.
"Wednesday marked a day of national mourning in the Ukraine after 25 people were killed in a bloody clash between protestors and the government.
"About 1,000 other people were injured as well..."
"...The conflict started in November when thousands of protestors packed Independence Square when President Yanukovych reversed a decision to sign a trade deal with the European Union and instead turned toward Russia.
"Later, an anti-protest law went into effect. Demonstrators also protested that.
"Churches around the world are holding 24-hour prayer vigils in light of the violence.
"CBN’s Steve Weber asked for prayers for the Ukraine on Facebook Wednesday morning.
"'We just need to pray they'll be a whole new generation of people who really want to serve and be leaders in the government, not for personal benefit, but for the good of the people," he said."
