Prayers for the end of war in Donbas raised in Maidan
In the capital's Maidan Nezalezhnosti several thousand Christians prayed for peace in Ukraine, repentance and spiritual growth of the people, nation-building based on moral values.
These prayer events were held on October 19 in most major cities of Ukraine by the Council of Evangelical Protestant Churches of Ukraine, according to the Institute of Religious Freedom.
Biblical admonition and prayers of leaders of the evangelical churches were accompanied by choral singing.
There were prayers for the cessation of war and hostilities in Donbas, for reconciliation and unity of the Ukrainians from different regions of the country, for cleaning society of corruption and turning to God, for the wisdom of the authorities in the service to the people and so on.
The event ended with a joint ‘Our Father’ prayer, which was read aloud there, and the proclamation of the word of blessing for Ukraine.
