O gracious and loving God, our hearts just weep for those whose loved ones are dying for their commitment to find the truth and to tell the world about the atrocities that are daily being carried out. Lord, we know you already have plans to take care of this situation. Today we ask that you help the ones who are being sacrificed and their families and friends. These things will surely pass and there will be joy and gladness instead of sorrow and pain. We place our trust in you, knowing that you are always and forever with us. O mighty and powerful Lord, our God, in your holy name, I pray. Amen
