Prayers for London

Over the past few days, unrest has plagued the capital city of the United Kingdom. The riots started in Tottenham but have since spread over the city. It appears the original riots started after the shooting of Nick Duggan by London Police. The violence and looting has spread to other parts of the city such as Wood Green, Enfield and Ponders End, Brixton, Hackney, and many other neighborhoods..

Here are some videos documenting the violence.

O ALMIGHTY God, King of all kings, and Governor of all things, whose power no creature is able to resist, to whom it belongeth justly to punish sinners, and to be merciful to them that truly repent: Save and deliver us, we humbly beseech thee, from the hands of our enemies; abate their pride, asswage their malice, and confound their devices; that we, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore from all perils, to glorify thee, who art the only giver of all victory; through the merits of thy only Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
