Back in April in Paris an armed attack on a church was wonderfully foiled by the police. It is by no means the only such “success story.”
I believe this is a renewed reminder to us all to keep praying for all matters pertaining to intelligence matters, especially cyber security for websites and vital systems and utilities, along with vital work in codebreaking and the interception of electronic messages (including the voice recognition that detected Jihadi John.)
David Cameron was right to highlight the issue in his speech last night, and to warn that anything that is on the Internet is threatened, from banking to airlines.
Pray for the people whose job it is to protect us; it can often be an intense and lonely world but they are doing an absolutely vital job!
