As Human Trafficking Prevention Month ends, it is important to make sure that we are informed on this issue. That way we can both keep children safe and strategically pray against this unique evil.

From Enough Is Enough. Anyone can be a victim of Human Trafficking. Those exploited by traffickers represent people of all races, genders, backgrounds and social and economic statuses. A trafficker can be anyone — a classmate, employer, family friend, acquaintance, a boyfriend/girlfriend, or someone you met online.

Do you want state prayer alerts?


According to Polaris, who operates the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline, there were 10,359 trafficking situations reported to the Hotline in 2021. In those situations, a total of 16,554 likely victims of trafficking were identified. As shocking as these numbers are, they are likely only a fraction of the actual problem.

Since 2000, traffickers have recruited 55% of all sex trafficking victims online through social media, messaging apps, chat rooms, dating apps, classified ads, or job boards– making the internet the most widely used tool to scout out and groom potential victims into this horrific crime. Additionally, traffickers use the internet to solicit buyers. In 85% of all cases, the internet was the primary form of advertising humans for sale (2020 Human Trafficking Report.)

As a whole, the internet remained the top reported recruitment location.

Much like the grooming tactics employed by sexual predators, sex traffickers often lure their target into an online relationship, with the ultimate goal of meeting in person.

  • Teens (both boys and girls) between the ages of 12-19 are victims, but some have been as young as 9.
  • Traffickers often seek out children online who appear vulnerable, depressed, seem emotionally isolated from family and friends, have low-esteem or appear to have a lot of unsupervised time.

It’s critical for parents to talk to their kids about sex trafficking and recognize the red flags that a child is possibly being trafficked. You can learn more here, as well has how to report a tip or get help.

Please Lord! Come forward to protect our precious Children! Help us to pray as we need to stop the demonic forces from moving forward!
We Declare the Word of God for Intercessors and ALL Prayers…Psalm 101:8 “Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all the evildoers from the city of the LORD.” WE WILL DESTROY the enemies of our Children through our victorious LORD! Amen

Father God we pray for relief from despair, the wicked stories upon our children. God you are our truth and hope for stopping the trafficking upon the innocent children. Through prayer I know God can feel our feelings and anger toward the Evilness of these Cartels, drug, sex traffickers. God speak to parents of these children, place blocked codes upon all computers so they cannot get on the internet or phones. We continue to trust in Gods words of exposures and Gods words of protection. I call down these spirits that are directing the traffickers and cartels to lure them in candy coated lies. Father I pray protection over every child that is attracted to these lures of lies that are being fed to them to hold them in bondage of slavery. God their minds are searching for love, security, promises and this is part of the traps of words to catch them in the nets of the wicked. God we ask for your refuge for these children, cover them in your shelter that is their fortress. Psalms:91 – 4-He will cover you with His feathers, and under his wings you ( children will find refuge, His faithfulness will be your shield. God I pray these words over the children being lured all over the world. God I hear your promises and ask that you hear my voice as I ask you to make a-way for these children. I bind the dark spirits in all men and women who are promoting these terror of sex trafficking upon all children. I ask you to send your angels to command them to save the children and guard them in all ways. Praise you Jesus for your security and I say thank you as you direct this request up to your Father. 🧎‍♀️We win for our children in Jesus name.

Dear LORD, You are the Redeemer of the lost, the Comforter of the broken-hearted, the Protector of the most innocent. Give ear to our heart-felt plea. Confound the air waves of the evil one. Break the yoke of bondage placed on the unknowing by human traffickers. Restore the down-trodden with the truth of Your love and unravel the devil’s schemes. Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD; do I seek refuge; let me never be put to shame; in thy righteousness deliver me! Rescue speedily! Be thou a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! Let these words be spoken over every man, woman and child ensnared in human trafficking, LORD, and deliver as only You can. Keep us vigilant to be the hands and feet of Christ where you have placed us. Destroy this mountain of evil! By faith we believe the conquering spirit of Jesus is prevailing even now and exposing every scheme and lie. WE give thanks in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Father, make us aware of the signs of trafficking, not just online, but that which happens around us. Much trafficking is not due to kidnapping, but children being groomed and trafficked while they go to school or other activities. Father, protect our children and teach us so that we may help young people escape this situation.

Lord please help people who are trapped in the human trafficking situation. May they find a way to escape through a chance meeting with law enforcement or other ways. May they come out of the problem with their hearts turned to You for comfort. Amen.

Dear Lord, please stop his horrible crime against humanity and our children!
We need your help and intervention. May those who do this evil be found
and locked up, deliver them from their bondage and set them free to sin
no more! In Jesus Name!
