Heavenly Father, we rejoice in the success of Brazilian police’s raids this week that resulted in 326 arrests. We are thankful police were proactive in preventing attacks related to the prison transfer of a high-profile, criminal gang leader known as Marcola. We are excited about the apprehension of 100 people with pending arrest warrants and the retrieval of 64 vehicles that had been reported stolen. We pray for continued success in thwarting organized crime in the nation, and for the specific plan that Marcola and 21 other prisoners’ transfer to a more distant prison will prevent them from operating their networks. Grant Brazilian leaders and law enforcement continued creativity, diligence and courage as they seek to decrease organized crime in their country. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
