A prayer for protection in Brazil

Pray for a community in Brazil where a gang is waging war on a rival gang—including any family members. More than 20 families have been forced into hiding and the local pastor has been threatened not to help any of the children. Please pray for protection and intervention, especially for our Compassion children!

Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day. (Psalm 140:1-2)
