Heavenly Father, we request comfort for those who grieve the murders of the three women, four small children and two infants burned alive near La Mora, Mexico, Monday evening. We are distraught about the three vehicles traveling between the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua being ambushed by criminal groups—shot up and burned without provocation. We are thankful for Sonora state Gov. Claudia Pavlovich Arellano’s strong condemnation of the attack and commitment to track down the perpetrators of this crime. We pray for continued protection and resolve for her as she pursues resolution and continues to lead in a region marred by violence. We pray that the American FBI's offer for assistance will aid in the process of tracking down the murderers, and that these criminals can be quickly apprehended. In Jesus’ powerful name we pray, amen.
