As I pray about the horrors of human trafficking, my heart is always heavy.
God does not want his children to be raped, drugged, beaten, and sold for sex. He does not want his children to have all their human rights ripped away from them. He doesn’t want for them held in the bondage of slavery.
It is beyond my comprehension that there are people who would do these horrors to women, men, and helpless children.
The United Nations definition is: “Trafficking in persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.”
I have an organization that is fighting human trafficking. “Love Missions” which has two safe houses and will soon house up to 40 children. When you look in the eyes of a child that has been trafficked you will never be the same. And you will never be able to again look the other way.
My prayer is this: that everyone will join together and help take a stand against this horrible evil. I feel it is the very darkest there is.
But we know where there is darkness, all it takes is a little light and it cannot be dark any more. Jesus says we are the light. So if we will go into the dark places and shed the light of Christ into the darkness we can expose this evil with Jesus’ love.
So let’s pray for more awareness.
Let’s pray for the demand to end. There would not be human trafficking if there wasn’t a demand.
Let’s pray for the victims of child labor and let’s pray for the victims of child trafficking.
Let’s pray for all victims to be rescued.
Let’s pray that all victims will be restored.
Let’s pray for justice for the traffickers.
Let’s pray for repentance of those who hurt, rape, torture, and abuse children, women, and men.
Let’s unite and STOP HUMAN TRAFFICKING!
That’s why I’m a modern day abolitionist and why you should be too!
