The family of Bali Nine duo must be in distress right now.
Let us pray for those who are on death row and their families.
Here is a prayer to abolish the death penalty found on AmericanCatholic.org:
You let your rain fall on the just and the unjust.
Expand and deepen our hearts
so that we may love as You love,
even those among us
who have caused the greatest pain by taking life.
as we fill up death rows and kill the killers
in the name of justice, in the name of peace.
you suffered execution at the hands of the state
but you did not let hatred overcome you.
Help us to reach out to victims of violence
so that our enduing love may help them heal.
You strengthen us in the struggle for justice.
Help us to work tirelessly
for the abolition of state-sanctioned death
and to renew our society in its very heart
so that violence will be no more. Amen.
