Pray and Lobby – “For the Love of” day in London

What a day! It’s rare that so many of us who are involved in praying and fasting in the UK are able to come together in prayer … but the “For the love of” service and lobby in London provided a golden opportunity.

The day started with two ecumenical services held simultaneously at St Margaret’s, Westminster, and the Emmanuel Centre on Marsham Street. Each had a full complement of leaders and worshippers from different churches – it was amazing to see the unity on display and to hear the congregations as they prayed and sang together.
