Christians gather to pray for terrorism in UK

By July 12, 2005

England (MNN) — The death toll continues to rise in last week’s London terrorist bombing. It’s now eclipsed the 50 mark and many in England are fearful of another attack.

Christians gathered over the weekend in churches across London to mourn the bombing victims and pray for peace and calm.

Britain’s top religious leaders plan to issue a joint statement appealing to Muslims, Christians and Jews to unite in their condemnation of terrorism and their resolve to fight it.

However, longtime students of international terrorism believe the world has entered a long siege in a new kind of war. The survey taken by the Associated Press found that many believe al-Qaida is mutating into a global insurgency, a possible prototype for other 21st-century movements. According to the world, the way out is far from clear.

Christians, meanwhile, have the answer. It’s only through Christ that there can be any peace, which means the need to share the Gospel is urgent.
