London Attack Near Mosque: Prayers Requested
An attack early yesterday morning is being investigated as an act of terrorism against Muslims. This attack is speculated to be linked to fears of recent assaults linked with Islamic extremists.
A little after midnight, a van ran through a group of pedestrians near a mosque in North London.
One person died and 10 were wounded. The man guilty of this act was Darren Osborne, a man from Wales.
This incident reminds us of the recent attack at the beginning of the month that ISIS claimed responsibility for. One of its fighters crashed a van into a crowd of people on London Bridge before going on a stabbing rampage.
Evil does not always represent itself with one religious affiliation, gender or region. It is a condition that plagues our whole fallen world.
This most recent attack shows that our world is hurting, and some choose violence to help bring about their hope.
Join us to pray for those affected by this most recent attack near a mosque. Pray for those still needing counsel to heal from the emotional and physical wounds of the attack earlier this month. London has seem much violence in recent weeks, so please join us to pray for God to stop the violence. Pray that His reign would be ever-present in this city and that He would cause evil to flee.
