Today in history…Soviets crush Hungarian revolt

As I type this, the nation of Hungary is holding a day of mourning, remembering the tragic events of November 4, 1956.  58 years ago today Soviet tanks rolled in to Budapest and viciously crushed the 12-day-old revolution against Soviet oppression.  Thousands of Hungarians were killed, and nearly a quarter-million fled their homeland.

Pray for Hungarians today both in Hungary and around the world. Ask the Father to comfort them as they mourn; ask that their hearts will turn to the One who gives ultimate victory and hope that can never be taken away.
