Heavenly Father, as we deal with excessive amounts of turmoil within the world, we are excited when we hear good news! Today we laud Dutch police for their success in foiling a large-scale terror attack in their nation. We celebrate the arrest of those who would kill and destroy. We give thanks for lives saved. Lord, we pray for investigators as they continue to unravel this plot and move these seven men through the justice system, that you would you would grant great wisdom and insight, and that truth would come to light. And, Lord, as we celebrate this good news, may we also celebrate the ultimate Good News: that there is hope for all humankind through Jesus Christ. Amen.
