Prayer about the murder of Miriam Rodriguez
Lord, today we pray about the murder of Miriam Rodriguez, killed in her own San Fernando home on Mexican Mother's Day. Lord, we admire how Rodriguez stood up to the Mexican drug cartel and tirelessly investigated her daughter's murder until she found her body in an unmarked grave two years later. Heavenly Father, the terroristic tactics of the drug cartels are frustrating beyond words. We pray that this silencing of Rodriguez will not intimidate others into remaining quiet when they need to speak out. We pray Rodriguez's organization, Citizen Community in Search of the Disappeared, will continue its good work. We pray for healing and peace for Rodriguez's loved ones. May they be proud of her legacy and continue to work for truth, justice and security in their communities and beyond. We seek your mercy as we pray. Amen.
