Prayers for Peacemakers, August 6, 2014

Pray that the heart of 
Leonel Gutierrez Lagares, Inspector of Police of Vijagual,
who has tried to evict the community of El Guayabo five times from its land,
will be moved to repentance when CPT Colombia delivers a petition to him this
week protesting a violent 26 June 2014 eviction.
  Ask that God continue to encourage the hearts
of the people of El Guayabo as they nonviolently resist systemic powers trying
to move them out of the way.

Faithfulness will spring up from the ground,
and righteousness will look down from the sky.
The LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before him, and will make a path for his steps.

Psalm 85:11-13
