Prayers for Peacemakers, February 20, 2013

God, guide Colombian authorities into effective deterrence
of threats against civilians, and vigorous promotion of human rights, participatory
democracy and social justice.  Protect and
embolden threatened women’s rights defenders Yolanda Becerra and Gloria Amparo
Suarez and their families, until their work is accomplished.
