Prayer for Guatemala: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - June 8
Today we turn our attention to a Central American country with problems of worldwide significance: It's a major trans-shipment point for the drug trade. Violence, poverty, and corruption are common, along with syncretism of Catholicism and animistic religion. Yet God is faithful, with evangelical growth reaching almost 25% and having influence with government officials, and the beginning of addressing wrongs done to the Mayan peoples. Much work remains to be done in Guatemala, though. Please read pages 381-384, then watch this video as we pray in unity for this country that is precious to God's heart.
