Prayer about deadly attack at a bar in Mexico
Heavenly Father, we are saddened by the violent attack at White Horse bar in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, that killed 25 people and severely injured a dozen more. We join the families in grieving the loss of loved ones. We ask that you comfort them and give them peace as they await the outcome of this investigation. Father, we pray for the culture to change in Coatzacoalcos and the surrounding region. We pray against the criminal activity of gangs. We pray that you soften the hearts of gang members and draw them to you. Guide them to authentic community in your church and transform their lives by your grace. Lord, we pray against police corruption and any chance that it may threaten this investigation. We pray that the officers involved in this case are trustworthy and persistent in pursuing the attackers until they are brought to justice. Father, we look forward to the day when we are united with you and free from the pain of this world. Until then we ask that you strengthen us and encourage us as we help one another. We praise you for your goodness and mercy. In Jesus’ name, amen.
