Prayers for Peacemakers, August 31, 2016   Colombia

Creator of the universe, we rejoice with all our Colombian
brothers and sisters who are celebrating the end of the Colombian civil war.
 We praise you for the strength that you gave those who resisted the
violence and degradation of humanity over the last decades. We honor the
murdered martyrs who spoke out for justice and simply tried to do their jobs in
the face of overwhelming corruption and inequality.  We know that the
evils of the human heart have not been signed away in Havana. We ask that you
bend the will of those in power toward justice and that you give peacemakers
renewed strength for the journey that is to come.

But if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring
     on it.

And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it  Jeremiah 18:8-9

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.
