LONDON -- Christians in the United Kingdom took to the streets this week to boldly proclaim they're not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
They also prayed for their nation, which has become increasingly hostile to Christianity.
Thousands of people all over Great Britain gathered for "Not Ashamed Day 2011" as well as the 2 Chronicles 7:14 Prayer Rally in London.
Hundreds of people prayed and praised God in front of St. Paul's Cathedral.
The apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans (found in Romans 1:16 in the New Testament) wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that he was not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Likewise, these Christians made the same proclamation -- that the true hope for their country is turning back to Jesus.
"We want to reach out to them in love and proclaim the hope and the truth that is found only and supremely in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ," Andrea Williams, chief executive officer of Christian Concern told CBN News.
