Prayer about alleged gang-rape and murder of Dalit teen in India

Lord God, we are sickened to learn of more Dalit women being raped and murdered by men of higher castes in India. We are particularly concerned about the current case involving four high-caste men who allegedly gang-raped and murdered a 19-year-old woman. Lord, the fact that her body was cremated around the time rape charges were removed from the case (possibly) without her family’s consent does seem suspicious. Now we cannot find that evidence, but you know the truth. These men will stand before you someday for whatever they may or may not have done. Lord, if anyone witnessed this crime or overheard talk about it, compel that person to step forward to the right authorities. Even better, Lord, we would love to see at least one of these men fully confess to what happened, choosing justice and truth over deceit and guilt. We pray for this young woman’s family, for healing and protection. Give them supernatural strength to survive their grief and the painful legal process. Lord, we want truth to come out in this situation. Please magnify yourself and draw people to you in the midst of this tragedy. In Jesus’ name, amen.
