"7/11: A Day of Fasting & Prayer. A Response to 7/7 London Bombings."

The first and best response to national and international crises is to pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Followers of Christ should be in a constant attitude of prayer, and sometimes it takes major events to remind us of our need of His healing. I confess that I have often failed in this by setting my affections on the things of the earth, not on things above (Colossians 3:2).

A good way to renew prayer is to support the efforts of those who set aside specific days to call people to prayer. Hal of The Great Separation has just done that:

Go before the throne.- In light of the terror attack on our alley and her innocent people in the city of London, I think we Christian brothers and sisters should make a special effort to hold this situation up before the Lord of Hosts, our Father in Heaven.
I believe it would be an exceptional idea if we were to hold a day of fasting and prayer this coming Monday for all those effected and for those who organized this terrible act.

We know that this terror war is more than a physical battle. It is spiritual warfare and if it is to be overcome, it must be attacked on that level first and foremost.

So spread the word on your blogs. Let's make this coming Monday, 7/11, a day of fasting and prayer.
