Lord, today we pray about yesterday’s bombing in a St.
Petersburg subway station. Lord, we are all tired of these senseless attacks on
innocent people. We recognize the world is tending toward decay. However, while
weary, we do not want to grow lax in prayer. So we lift up the victims of this bombing.
Lord, so many need physical and emotional healing after the attack. And there
are so many who grieve the deaths of loved ones. Spread a healing balm over those
who suffer. Lord, we also pray for great efficiency for the leaders who are
investigating this incident. May they learn the truth about suspect Akbarzhon Jalilov and anyone else who may have been involved. Finally, we express gratitude that the second bomb was
discovered and disarmed before killing others. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
