The greatest thing anyone can do to fight human trafficking is pray. The Lord holds the keys to rescuing each one of the 27 million slaves held in bondage throughout the world. Many rescues have taken place as a direct answer to prayer. Devoting ourselves to seek His face has the potential to end this nightmare for so many men, women, and children.
Following the Lenten calendar, Traffick Free Pomona (TFP) is calling believers to pray for 40 days--from Ash Wednesday (February 13) until Easter Eve (March 30). To help you pray specifically and grow deeper in your understanding of modern-day slavery, TFP has made a prayer guide available.
Let's take this prayer journey together. It only takes a few minutes each day to think about our those who are enslaved to cruel and vicious masters and to pray for them. And it will make a difference to that little 7-year-old girl forced to be a sex slave in Thailand, to the little 9-year-old boy harvesting cocoa beans 12 hours a day 7 days a week on the Gold Coast, to the Sri Lankan teen in domestic servitude in Singapore--and perhaps to the girl next door who's being beaten and raped by a pimp.
