Prayer about Honduran activist Felix Vasquez's murder

Lord, we are distraught about the brutal killing of human rights and environmental activist Felix Vasquez before his family’s eyes. We pray that Honduran authorities will have great success and diligence in their investigation, so the killers will be found and brought to justice. Lord, we pray about the questions raised by the Coalition against Impunity—questions about whether the government neglected Vasquez’s previously shared concerns about being persecuted over his activism. If corruption is involved in this scenario, please bring it to light. We also lay before you our concerns about how dangerous Honduras is for activists—listed as among the world’s most dangerous places for activism. We pray for courage and protection over those who stand up against injustice and mistreatment. Above all, Heavenly Father, we pray for supernatural comfort and healing for Vasquez’s family members, who witnessed this horrific act. Please bring them deep peace as they process this tragedy and deal with the terrible imagery of their loved one’s murder. May justice come as part of their healing journey. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
