Prayers for Peacemakers, 3 July 2013

  Epixel* for 3 July 2013
 
 

 I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up, and did not let my foes rejoice over me. -Psalm 30:1

  *epixel: a snapshot-epistle to the churches related to and appearing with a text from the upcoming Sunday’s Revised Common Lectionary readings.


Ask
that God grant protection to the people of Las Pavas, who were once
again the targets of violent harassment when a fireball was launched
from amidst the the palm tree crops of the Aportes San Isidro
Corporation on 27 June 2013 at the community’s ranch house.  Give thanks
no one was hurt, but pray that the hearts of the corporation
executives, the henchmen they are paying to attack the Las Pavas
community, and the police officers they have paid to look the other way
will be transformed and that the impunity for their actions will end
