We are also praying for the political system of Guatemala. As with any country's political system, it is an ever changing landscape. Guatemala has a long way to go in healing the deep wounds of their 36-year civil war. Last May, their former dictator José Efraín Ríos Montt, was convicted of war crimes only to have his conviction overturned by the constitutional court. As Guatemala tries to find its path after decades of dictatorships and military rule, may we pray for justice and inclusion. May all of Guatemala's citizens feel like they have a voice.
