From Lovefast, by Chas at Mahabba:

“There are over a million Muslims in London, a third of all Muslims in the UK. Muslims are very visible on the streets as many have become outwardly more religious. Girls as young as five can be seen wearing headscarves on occasion. Often men adopt beards and dress in the style of Muhammed. Following radical attacks, these images can conjure fear in the minds of some. Yet the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful, and simply getting on with their ordinary lives. The reason for the more Islamic dress is most commonly a show of pride in their identity as they feel under scrutiny in these troubled times. And let’s not forget the terrible attacks on Muslims too. When local mosques are visited, or simple conversations had in the street a warm welcome is given with gentleness and a deep respect for God.”

From 30 Days of Prayer:

“Pray for Muslims seeking a place of belonging and identity to find it in Christ. (1 John 3:1–3) Pray that followers of Christ in London will be an effective witness and have opportunities to share their faith with Muslims and former Muslims. Pray for a movement to Christ among Muslims who live there, as they have connections all over the world.”
