Lord God, we celebrate that authorities have apprehended whom they believe to be Arizona’s "East Valley Rapist." With no previous leads on eight cases of sexual assault in the area between July 1999 and October 2001, we are grateful funding from the Justice Department’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative led investigators to John Daly III. With circumstances and DNA pointing to Daly, three of the cases are moving toward closure and one is also making good progress. We pray for the justice system to be swift, accurate and fair in these cases. We pray for final investigations to go smoothly and for people with additional information to come forward quickly and courageously. Lord, we pray for the survivors of these attacks to benefit from the arrest. We pray against flashbacks and fear, but rather for hope and valor. May all who need to testify be safe, secure and clear. Lord, we pray for Daly to repent from any wrongdoing and speak the truth. Lord God, we entrust this entire situation to you in Jesus’ name, amen.
