Father God, Lord of the Universe, our Creator and Giver of Life we thank you that you are a good God, that you are merciful but just. We ask that the perpetrators of this crime be held accountable. But that in this judgement You show mercy to snatch them out of the devil’s hand. While they will need to pay the penalty, may You also save the ones You will. I also ask for your tender love to cover the families that have been devastated by this horrific crime and give them peace.
