A Crime Against Humanity

Source: 60 Minutes

Story: Scott Pelley reports on the 2013 Sarin gas attack in Syria that U.S. intelligence estimates killed more than 1,400 civilians.

Prayer: Sovereign Lord, we couldn't bear to watch the horror-stricken children struggling to breathe and dying from the Saran gas dropped on their city by the Syrian dictator. "Weeping and loud lamentation" for lost children was reminiscent of Herod's slaughter of the Innocents in an attempt to kill the Messiah (Mt. 2:18). We commit the souls of these innocent children to you, their Heavenly Father, and we pray these evil powers will be brought to justice, both here and before you at the close of the age.
