Riots have been occurring in London for three days, causing destruction and fear. Please pray for these misguided youth and for the city of London.

Lord have mercy!

nice icon!
my hospital is ringed by areas with riots.
the night shift started very busy but then went quiet as most of the roads are blocked by police.
they want not just to loot but also to fight police, which is why the police are being careful.
one colleague got his car attacked while he was in it trying to drive to work.
he escaped unharmed, thank God.
am finishing shift soon, so will see if it's possible to get home!
usually the bad guys get tired around 5am and go to bed, so it's usually safe to travel by 7.
it's a crazy city, lots of good and evil really doing battle, u can sometimes feel the spiritual tension in the air.
i am glad i lived here, but am moving away soon with work.
can't say i'll miss the stabbings and shootings...

Lord have mercy!

I am living in London, though am in Greece/Bulgaria for the summer.  I have a few friends living in the affected neighbourhoods, like Hackney.  Rioting and looting has spread beyond London to Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Reading, and West Bromwich.  Horrible..

He signed in just this morning, I am sure he's OK. I'm going to PM him. We should keep him, Mabsoota, and everyone else who might be affected by this, in our prayers.

I heard from Mabsoota today, and she seems to be in good spirits.

Lord have mercy on those in London, as well as those OC.net members living and working in the area.

All is well with me, thank God. Our bishop lives about a mile from one disturbance.

Now that the police have been instructed to be more visible and more forceful we are hoping that this problem will be kept under control.

hmm... i 'm afraid to say it was just bored teenagers and young aggressive people.
my friend's friend texted her to say he 'felt like going rioting'. she persuaded him not to.
there was no big political message.
thank God, people calmed down.
