 Therefore, since we a resurrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us
also
lay aside every weight,
and sin which clings so closely,
and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us,
 looking
to Jesus, the founder
and perfecter of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1-2a

Prayers for Peacemakers, 16 August 2013


Give thanks that Colombian authorities have revoked
the right of Aportes San Isidro SA Security Guards to carry weapons because of
their violent attacks on the people of Las Pavas. 

Pray that the local police, who have not protected
the Las Pavas community in the past, will enforce the court’s decision
