Almighty God, please direct and protect police officers as they carry out a manhunt in and around Paris. We pray they will safely apprehend the man who executed another man and shot a woman just outside a hospital Monday. Lord, we are thankful no one else was hurt and that there were witnesses. We pray that the witnesses will recall to mind any and all details that will help police find the shooter. We also pray for civilians to be on the alert for anything suspicious in their communities and quick to reach out to law enforcement if they see or hear something helpful. Lord, we pray for the perpetrator of this crime. We pray he will not feel the need to resort to any more violence and that he will submit to law enforcement when found. We pray for the woman who was seriously injured in this incident. May she receive excellent care at the hospital and fully recover from her injuries. We pray for those who grieve the death of the targeted man. Please grant them peace and hope in this dark time. In Jesus’ powerful name we pray, amen.
