New British PM an Answer to Prayers for Unity

Ad Feedback

When Britain's political future became uncertain following the country's May 6 elections, hundreds of Christians gathered to pray for their nation.

Attendees at the Liverpool Cathedral "Heal Our Land UK" concert sought God for unity in the nation politically, and for a new spirit of evangelism.

Many feel those prayers were answered when Britain's Conservative Party and Liberal Democrats joined this week to run the country under a coalition government.

Conservative David Cameron replaced former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. At 43-years-old, Cameron is now Britain's youngest prime minister in nearly 200 years

In past comments about his faith, Cameron said he has a "classic" Anglican background.

"I am a Christian, I go to church, I believe in God," he once said. "But I do not have a direct line."

He added that while organized religion has its faults, "the Church of England and other churches do play a very important role in society."
