Guatemala has the 7th highest murder rate in the world, a result of drug trafficking, gang violence and insufficient law enforcement. Compassion Guatemala asks for prayers of protection for their children who are exposed to or enticed by gangs every day.
He frees me from my enemies. You exalt me above my adversaries; You rescue me from violent men. Therefore I will praise You, Lord, among the nations; I will sing about Your name. (2 Samuel 22:49-50)
