Latest prayer points

Pakistan
Protection of female human rights defenders: Female human rights defenders in Pakistan regularly face harassment and online bullying both for their work defending the rights of others and because of their gender. Pray that the government would create safe spaces in which they can work, and that God would protect them and bless them with much needed resources.
Colombia
Freedom of religion or belief in Colombia: Pray the Colombian government would recognise the rights of indigenous peoples and put in place legislation that will protect the right to freedom of religion or belief for all Colombians, including those living on indigenous lands. Pray for lasting peace in Colombia. “Move in power in the hearts of the government and the leaders of the illegal armed groups; protect those who are working for peace and justice in the country and bless their efforts richly.”  
Mexico
Mexico's new government and human rights: Mexico’s new government took office in December. Pray that the newly elected officials would act with integrity and wisdom to uphold the country’s secular constitution, and to ensure justice for all citizens regardless of their religion or belief. The last time Mexico underwent its peer review of human rights at the UN, in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), Member States made several recommendations for Mexico to improve its human rights situation. Pray today that the government would act on these recommendations.
Chile
Immigrants to Chile helped by the church: Over the last two years Chile has received immigrants from different parts of Latin America and Africa. Regrettably some of these immigrants have faced discrimination and prejudice. Several churches and Christian organisations are starting Spanish courses and offering legal advice and advocacy. Pray that the Lord will touch the lives of the immigrants through the preaching and testimony of the church, and that he will challenge the prejudices and xenophobic attitudes in sections of the wider population.
