German pastor says G20 politicians need prayers

by Eno Adeogun

Edward Owen, pastor of Hamburg International Church said during News Hour what Christians should do during the G20 discussions: "The best that we can do - and by scripture - is to pray. Pray for those who are in authority as the bible tells us all authority is God-given."

Meanwhile, at least 160 police officers have been injured during violent clashes outside the summit.

Anti-globalization protesters set cars alight and tried to block entry to the site in Hamburg.

While Owen had urged his congregation last weekend to pray for a quite weekend, he said he told Premier he wasn't disappointed their prayers weren't answered: "God doesn't always answer our prayers with a 'yes' and a 'amen'.

"We never know God's will, God's plan. We now changed our prayer from specifically praying for a whole peaceful weekend to pray for specific things now. For peace of course, for peaceful protests as that's mainly what's going on -these unpeaceful protests.

Speaking about what his pray-points are concerning the discussions, he said he believed climate- change would be discussed would be praying regarding that.
