Please Pray with Me for Ukraine

Dear Friends,

This is not a happy crochet post; this is a cry of my soul.

If you follow the international news, you must know about the violent unrest in my native country Ukraine. The death toll now reached over 70 and there are hundreds of wounded.

Those are not just numbers, those are PEOPLE! They are someone's sons and daughters, fathers and brothers, and neighbors, and friends, who will never come back home. 

How could it all have happened?

Please pray with me for the bloodshed in Ukraine to stop.

This is a photo of Ukrainian countryside that I took on my visit several years ago. And this is how I always have perceived my native Ukraine – beautiful and peaceful. 


  1. How sad your heart must be for your beautiful Ukraine. And I too will pray.

  2. Yes, I am praying. I saw this on the news last night and it broke my heart.

  20. Здравствуйте,Ольга! Только сегодня прочитала Ваш пост,но я знаю точно, что 23 февраля вся Русская Православная Церковь, на воскресной литургии молилась "о упокоении погибших братьев и сестер, об исцелении раненых и болящих, об умирении ожесточенных сердец, о прекращении раздора и смуты на Украине, о том, чтобы Господь ниспослал всем нам дух любви, мира, прощения и братолюбия во Христе!" Из обращения Патриарха Кирилла.
    С уважением!

  21. Such sad news and so much heartache - will pray for your special country.
