Seek the Lord as to how you might intercede effectively and strategically against the scourge of human trafficking.

“Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” (Ps 82:4 ESV)

Mora was 14 years old when her “boyfriend” first asked her to perform sex acts on camera for strangers. Mora was desperate for acceptance and approval, and said yes. Before long Mora’s boyfriend hooked her on heroin and began taking her to Buffalo and New York City to prostitute herself. When Mora realized she was just one of many girls trapped in this cycle, the “relationship” turned violent.

Mora’s story is just one of thousands of young women and children being sexually trafficked and prostituted in America….


When the woman caught in the act of adultery was dragged before Jesus, most people saw her nakedness and sin and rushed to condemn. Jesus, however, saw a woman who needed rescuing. Yes, she had sinned, but what she needed first was to be told “I don’t condemn you.”

Exodus Cry, a non-profit dedicated to eradicating sex trafficking, recently released a video on Facebook that powerfully illustrates the need to see women in prostitution as those “with the fewest choices.” …


There are many great organizations, many founded by Christians, dedicated to the cause of eradicating human trafficking. International Justice Mission specifically provides multiple ways to help, and specifically provides churches with options for involvement.


For some churches, the “far away” problem of sex trafficking is silently happening in their own neighborhoods. One of the most needed action steps in America on this topic is education, especially for pastors asking God what they can do….


While it’s easy to feel that the problem of sex trafficking is vast, and so global, that it’s impossible to make a difference, each Christian’s choice to engage matters. The more money, prayer, time and action spent combating sex trafficking gives hope to girls like Mora….

Because if God’s church mobilizes together, today could be about more than human trafficking awareness. It could be another step toward its eradication. (Excerpts from Joshua Pease’s article in ChurchLeader.com)

Lord God, wake up your church, cause us to pray against this in each of our neighborhoods. Lord, i pray for each victim, that you would save them, that they would call out to you and that they would know that you hear them. We bind the spirit of fear from them, we bind Satan from making then feel worthless. Our Lord Jesus, you came to heal the brokenhearted like these, may your mission be accomplished in their lives, dear Lord. Give grace to all the organizations who seek to assist these poor young ones to give them back their freedom, and may they find true freedom in knowing you, Jesus. In your name, Amen

My heart breaks for those who have been enslaved to people who use them as if they were not human. The children who are kidnapped and lost in this vast system of evil people are those who my heart breaks for the most. If we could save even one person from this hellish enslavement, it would be worth it. My prayer is that God gives us supernatural wisdom to find ways to get the children out and the perpetrators into jail. I pray for both the victims and the people who are ensnared by the devil to do such horrific things to children and women.
