Prayers for
Peacemakers, December 2, 2015

Pray for the communities of Garzal and Nueva Esperanza.  They have petitioned the head of INCODER—the
Colombian government agency in charge of rural land management—asking for
representatives to visit the area to verify and resolve of the issues
surrounding the granting of titles and ownership to land.   INCODER returned sixty-four stolen land
titles in 2013, and promised to complete their land process the following year,
but the communities continue to wait—and face pressures from powerful people
who want their land, and who have corrupt local authorities on their side.

as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
    ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.


 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight,
    and the rough ways made smooth; 
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'” Luke 3:4-6

Borders

People move. The human experience has included migration along every step of the way, and the nation state will not eliminate movement. So it’s about time we start to work with movement instead of continuously trying to stifle it.
