About 100 people gathered in front of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council Complex (LegCo) on Tuesday to pray for the end of violence and for protesters who were injured and imprisoned in the course of the recent rallies against the currently-suspended extradition bill.

The prayer session came after Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam apologised to Hong Kong citizens for a second time over the controversial bill which would have allowed suspects to be sent to mainland China to face trial.

“She’s weak, mentally, spiritually, as a Christian we need to support her also,” said Father Xavier speaking of Lam.

Attendees sang ‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord,’ a hymn slowly turning into the unofficial tune of the rallies.

On Sunday, hundreds of thousands of protests descended on Hong Kong’s streets against the bill. According to the protest organisers, nearly two million people participated in the protest. Police said that the turnout was 338,000 at its peak.
