Prayers for Peacemakers, March 5, 2014

Pray for the community of Guayabo, Colombia, which
successfully resisted an eviction in November, but still fears the intervention
of illegal outside armed actors.

Erik Yesid Payares, 32, a leader for
the community of Guayabo, asked CPT’s Colombia team to publicize the following
request this week:  “It is important to us that this problem is made known.  We are humble people of peace and small
farmers.  We live in a critical
situation under threat.  We ask
that you help us and not abandon us.”’
