CBN News Special LIVE Prayer Event From Ukraine


This year, Ash Wednesday became a day of prayer and fasting for the people of Ukraine with Christians around the world heeding Pope Francis' call to prayer. 

People around the world have joined Ukrainians in praying for their nation, hoping peace comes quickly after Russia's Vladimir Putin launched a military invasion against the country on Feb. 24.  

In the Philippines, the Manila Cathedral and other buildings were lit up with Ukraine's national colors of blue and yellow.

In Florida, the Tampa Bay community held a prayer vigil at the Epiphany of Our Lord Ukrainian Catholic Church. 

In Jerusalem, Israel, people prayed for the war-torn country at the Wailing Wall with some wearing Ukraine's flag. 

In Liverpool, United Kingdom, the flag of Ukraine was flown at The Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, an Anglican church. The site is said to have been a place of worship since at least the 1250s. 

Also in Germany, "A Prayer for the Ukraine" by Valentyn Silvestrov (1937) was played during the Ash Wednesday service in the Berlin Cathedral. 

And in Richmond, Virginia, students at St. Francis Xavier School wrote prayers and formed the Ukrainian flag on the chapel window during the school's Ash Wednesday service.
