The clock said 5:32 when I woke up this morning. I'm not sure if I had a dream or if I just heard a word, but when I awoke the word I heard was sex trafficking, what I saw was children being snatched and taken away from their families to be trafficked and I heard pray. As I began to pray, I realized that I didn't know what to pray. I didn't know how to pray, so I asked the Holy Spirit to use me to pray the Father's will and I began to pray in the Spirit. Some words that were clear as the Spirit prayed where “hope,” “protection,” “Father's will,” “freedom,” “repentance” and “forgiveness.”
Many of us, especially here in America never even think about such things as human trafficking or sex trafficking unless it reaches our families or someone that we know. Sex trafficking is one of the largest criminal businesses in the world. Thousands of children and young adults, boys and girls are kidnapped and forced into sexual exploitation every day.
I believe that we in the Body of Christ have tremendous power to change things and situations through prayer. I believe that we have been given the authority from God to speak to mountains and obstacles no matter how large and change situations in our life and in the lives of others.
I believe that we have legions of Angels who are waiting to assist us to do the Father's will. I believe God wants to use us today to save children who are victims of sex trafficking. What He needs from us is faith in Him, and the willingness to allow Him to use us to speak His will into the earth. Then faith and His Angels will work to accomplish what we have prayed and spoken.
So today I'm asking you to pray this prayer with me out loud so that the Angels will hear you and move to rescue and set these children and adult who have been being trafficked free.
Let us pray:
Father God, please forgive us for our sins and help us to serve and love others daily. Psalm 146:7 declares that You execute justice for the oppressed, You give food to the hungry and You set prisoners free. Psalm 103:6 declares “The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed."
Father, today we ask for the liberation of victims of human trafficking. You are a God of Miracles. You helped Paul and Silas escape their oppressors supernaturally and even delivered some of their oppressors. We ask You remove the chains of the victims and help them to escape. Whether supernaturally or through the help of others grant freedom to those being held captive and bring their oppressors to repentance.
Father You are a healer, a restorer, and a life-giver. You can bring life, purpose, and joy back to those who have been oppressed by this evil. We ask You to send helpers to bring healing, and restoration through Your life giving word. Save them Father and put a new song in their mouths. Cause them to call upon You so that you can save them. May eternal life with You be their hope.
God, according to Your word in Luke 12:2: “Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.” Psalm 37:17 declares that the arms of the wicked shall be broken. Father expose every human trafficking organization to the authorities. Break the arms of this wickedness. Let the traffickers be arrested and prosecuted and put away where they can hurt no one else. Let this evil come to an end. And we ask You God to open the eyes of the traffickers and bring them to repentance. Help them to call upon the name of the Lord and be saved.
Father, we pray for Your Church to rise up and pray for the helpless, the vulnerable, the imprisoned, and the oppressed. We ask You to awaken this issue of human trafficking in our congregations and bring unity between denominations so that we can unite to end this evil. We pray for new laborers to come out of the church for this cause, people willing to work daily to bring an end to slavery. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen, Amen, Amen.
