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.

Community tries to protect teacher’s house from riot police eviction

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

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
