Brandon Bernard is seeking to have his execution stayed.  In his request to halt his execution, lawyers for Brandon noted that evidence that Brandon was a low-ranking gang member was suppressed during his trial, and that if the jury had known this, they could have been persuaded against sentencing him to death.  Additionally, earlier this month, several jurors from Brandon's trial signed a petition asking President Donald Trump to commute Brandon's sentence, noting his young age at the time of the offense, his clean prison record, and his outreach work while in prison.

Please pray for these men and women. Pray for salvation if unsaved, peace if saved, and that the innocent shall be revealed before they are executed.
