Prayer is crucial for engagement in trafficking. Please pray for those who are working directly with clients: R.E.S.T.; Seattle Against Slavery; Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST); Genesis Project; API CHAYA.
Consider praying regularly for:
Girls, women, and men in the sex-trade—that they would seek help and understand that they are loved by a God who cares for them dearly.
Men who cause a majority of the demand—that they would seek to find transformation that is accessible through Christ.
Welcoming the Stranger by Matt Soerens
“Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world. It is the recruitment of people by means of threat, force, coercion or deception for the purpose of exploitation. Sex trafficking is one of the most profitable forms of trafficking and involves many kinds of sexual exploitation, such as prostitution, pornography and the commercial sexual abuse of children.” (Source: R.E.S.T.)
