    There have been a few animals found around my city killed by suspected devil worshippers. I am wondering if we should pray for devil worshippers' salvation or for God to bring them to justice? What would you do?

    One is not exclusive of the other. Pray for both and for your community's safety both spiritually and physically.

    Pray for them. What if God had brought you to justice?

    Pray for your community's safety, and that these lost folks find Jesus. If they get saved, that would be best for all.

    Pray that all lost souls realize there need for Jesus Christ, those who have committed crimes necessitating punishment still have the penalty owed for those crimes.

    I agree. If crimes have been committed then there needs to be prosecution. But, more so, praying for these folks to come to know Jesus is the greatest need.

    I would pray for the Holy Spirit to convict them of their wickedness and turn them to Christ.

    Think about what Paul did to Christians in his day.

    Pray without ceasing. Pray for their souls, your safety, etc. Pray for an opportunity to witness to them. Pray for opportunities to witness to others as a result of what's going on. Pray God's will be done.
