Today Ukraine celebrates its independence. Although Ukraine has been around in one form or another for more than 1,000 years, the modern state of Ukraine became independent from the Soviet Union on August 24, 1991. On Wikipedia, I found the text of the decree the Ukrainian parliament passed that declared their independence. Please pray with us that Ukrainians would know the only true freedom that comes in Christ. Those that follow him know the truth, and that truth sets people free.
