Prayer Intentions for an End to Human Trafficking

by Kristen West McGuire

LORD, hear our prayers for women and girls held captive and forced into prostitution and/or slave labor, all over the world;

  • that any children who come under the influence of these captors would be rescued quickly and healed from lasting physical and emotional effects;
  • that women who find themselves enslaved in any way would find the financial, medical and emotional resources they need to escape;
  • for an end to wars and economic hardships which make it easier for cunning wolves to prey upon the weakest members of society;
  • for those government officials who are in a position to put an end to the slavery, that they would enact legislation to ban human trafficking and enforce it; and
  • for those who knowingly or unknowingly contribute in thought, word or deed to the slavery of another person, that they might repent of their actions and work for justice and healing.

Amen.

Human trafficking happens all over the world, including in the United States. It is estimated that around 200,000 human trafficking related crimes occur in the US alone each year. If you see something, say something. Learn the things to look for, and make reports of suspicious situations to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

Shared Hope International was started by Congresswoman Linda Smith when she visited the brothel district in Mumbai, India and knew she had to do something to end human trafficking. SHI seeks to end sex trafficking, and has led to some successes in prevention, mercy through restoration, awareness and the seeking of justice.

Since 2013, Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) has dedicated itself to supporting thousands of survivors worldwide through strategies tailored to specific geographical locations and best practices. They work with law enforcement on each continent to rescue humans enslaved by traffickers.
