Focused Prayer Guide
“Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.” Luke 12:2
“But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible.” Ephesians 5:13
Father God, would you help the public to see this as a problem for us all, not just those directly touched by slavery. As hard as it is to see and hear the truth and reality of what happens to these victims, we ask that you would help awareness increase. Show us how this is not only a problem overseas, but right here in our own cities. God, reveal to people how pornography plays into the trafficking of women and children. Give favor to those who are giving a voice to this cause. Help the truth of what is happening to these victims reach all races, ethnicities, and socio-economic classes. Pierce our consciences with the truth.
“I did not come to call the [self-proclaimed] righteous [who see no need to repent], but sinners to repentance [to change their old way of thinking, to turn from sin and to seek God and His righteousness].” – Luke 5:32
Jesus, when we pray for a horrible injustice like human trafficking it’s easy to forget our own sins that play into this atrocity. We all have root sin causing us to desire to rule over others, even God himself. God, we also acknowledge that we struggle with selfishness, lust, and greed, three factors that greatly feed the evil of human trafficking. Please forgive us for our sins. Help us to repent and change. Enable us to serve and love others. Make us different, shining like the stars in the heavens.
“Who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free.” Psalm 146:7
“The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.” Psalm 103:6
Holy Spirit, we beg for the liberation of victims. Please bring freedom to the 40 million slaves in the world. Remove the chains of their oppressors and help them escape. Just as you helped Paul and Silas escape the jail, free these people supernaturally. Free them through the repentance of oppressors. Free them through the work of your people to administer justice. However, you do it, please grant freedom to these people.
“I waited patiently for the Lord, he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.” Psalm 130:1-3
“He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Father, you are a God of Miracles.” Psalm 40:3
“I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.” Joel 2:25
Lord, you are a God of miracles. You are a healer, restorer, life-giver. We know you can bring life, purpose, and joy back to people who have had the years stolen away as if by locusts. Father, we ask that you would enter into their lives through other people, through your word, through opportunities, and through peace to enable healing. Put a new song in their mouths.
“For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Lord upholds the righteous.” Psalm 37:17
“Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end, and may you establish the righteous—you who test the minds and hearts, O righteous God!” Psalm 7:9
Heavenly Father, you are a just God. Our very notion of justice comes from you. You are perfect and holy. You are without sin, and because of this, you require payment for sin. We ask for justice to come to those who traffic people. We ask for authorities to locate, arrest, prosecute, and sentence these lawbreakers. We pray that they would be led to sorrowful repentance and salvation in the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.
