Prayer about deadly gang violence in Mexico


Heavenly Father, we seek you for comfort and guidance as more innocent lives have been lost due to gang activity along the US and Mexico border. We pray for the families and friends of the 14 victims as they are left behind to grieve. We pray for the town of Reynosa, that you will protect the residents from further violence and help them through this traumatic event. Lord, we understand that this region is a strategic location for both drug and human trafficking. We pray that it will no longer be this way, asking that you eradicate the criminal activity from this area and revive these towns. God, we pray for leaders at all levels of government who will work together to fight against these drug cartels and gangs. We know that nothing is impossible for you, Lord, and we ask for your intervention. In Jesus’ name, amen.
