Prayers for Justice and Freedom for the Enslaved

images
The judicial system is crucial to end slavery and create an atmosphere of freedom. Right now in courts around the world victims are seen as criminals and many times they never see justice. This week we will pray in faith for change and transformation around the world for places that are in need of justice.

One of the common factors that obstructs justice is prejudice and social inequality. In India for example justice is denied many times to women, in the Middle East rape victims can be put in jail. Injustice, so what happens when a girl is trafficked and sold as a slave. She many times is the very one that is criminalized, although small changes are happening we still have a long way to go.

Join us this week to ask God to change court systems, laws and bring freedom to those that have been victim to injustice.

Courts:

  • Justice: That court cases around the world would not show partiality to anyone because of funding, social stasis, race or religion but be objective and reflect justice. Exodus 23:2
  • Judges and juries: The judges and juries who are assigned to trafficking cases would be informed about slavery and the complexities with trafficking victims. They would have God’s wisdom in each case. Exodus 23:6
  • Lawyers: God would provide lawyers to fight for freedom. They would be anointed to try each human trafficking case they are given. Ezra 7:10

Laws:

  • New laws: Any gaps in laws that deal with human trafficking would be addressed and changed. Psalm 119:7
  • Current laws: Laws that exist would be enforced and judicial systems would pursue cases of human trafficking. Leviticus 18:5Leviticus 25:18
  • Change laws: Any laws that criminalize the victim would be exposed and changed. Laws around the world would reflect Christ justice and heart for people. Psalm 119:108

Freedom:

  • Victims freed: Any victims that are enslaved because of unjust laws would be found and freed. Luke 4:18
  • Strength: Survivors and victims would have the courage and strength to stand up for justice. They would be freed from the fear of facing their trafficker. Deuteronomy 31:6
  • Survivors: Would find peace and know Christ redemptive power. Ephesians 1:7

Thank you for joining us to pray for the end of slavery. We know that your prayers are changing the world.

Freedom Thursday; Prayer and Fasting

Freedom_Thursday_REV_2-2

Prayer and Fasting

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because theLord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners”

Isaiah 61:1

Thank you for joining us for Freedom Thursday. This week we are praying and fasting for freedom for the 35.8 million people that are trapped in slavery.

In 2013 a research paper was released about the prevalence of human trafficking in the world. The study revealed that 29.8 million people were enslaved, the number for 2014 is 35.8 million people around the world are being used like property everyday. Many of them are children.

We know that prayer changes things and brings freedom. So today we are standing up for freedom for each child, woman and man that is part of the 35 million.

Prayers of Freedom for Enslaved Children

IMG_1171

In Joshua 1:9 the Bible says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

As we stand in prayer to end slavery there are two things we have to be, strong and courageous. Strong in our fight to continue no matter what statistics we read or when we look into the eyes of children that are or have been or are being trafficked. And courageous to know, God is fighting the battle before us for those enslaved.

These two words have been the theme for this year and I can honestly say this year I have seen more injustice than I ever knew existed. I have met and prayed with girls that have been raped by fathers, forced into sex slavery and other girls that have no tangible hope for a future. Through all of it I have known more hope and faith in God, I have seen God speak to children longing for hope. I’ve seen angry boys choose Jesus and start to find joy; I have seen girls 8 and 9 years old forgive the people who raped them. Miracles of God, and signs that God will be with us wherever we go. Join us this week to pray for more miracles.

Abolitionist:

▪   God give all the people that are fighting for freedom strength and courage to continue. Joshua 1:9

▪   Provide financial security for there work. Isaiah 58:11

▪   God protect everyone that is standing up for victims. Psalm 42:3

Freedom For Children

▪   God bring freedom to children that are trapped in slavery. Romans 8:21

▪   Give them courage and strength to never give up hope. Joshua 1:9

▪   Any death or curses that might have been spoken over them replace with life and truth through Jesus. Psalm 56:13

Change in Society

▪   Empathy and compassion would be shown towards victims of slavery. Psalm 102:13

▪   Children would be valued by Society.

▪   Revival would begin in places renown for human trafficking. John 4:43-45

Remember as you face the challenges and problems of this week that God says, “be strong and courageous” He is fighting for you wherever you go. Thank you for taking time to pray for freedom for those enslaved your prayers are changing the world.

Freedom Thursday: 5 ways to raise awareness

Freedom_Thursday_REV_2-2

It’s our favorite day of the week! Freedom Thursday, this week we are raising awareness about human trafficking and slavery. Join us and spread the word today about freedom and justice so we can see the 35 million people freed from slavery.

1St Thursday : Raise Awareness

Join us to raise awareness about the realities of human trafficking. Tell someone about human trafficking, share a story or post a news story on social media. Get the word out that slavery happens in your community.

  1. Share the story of why it’s important to you to end slavery.
  2. Start a conversation with someone about slavery in your country.
  3. Know the ways slavery is preventable and tell someone who might be at risk.
  4. Write about it and how it effects culture, society and the way we buy and sell.
  5. Give up pornography. (It fuels the sex-trafficking industry and creates demand)

These are just a few ways that you can raise awareness but get creative and share with us what you are doing to end slavery. Raise your voice and be the change that our world needs to see justice.

Prayers to End Modern Day Slavery

images-1

Our prayers this week are for prevention, freedom and education. Three keys to ending slavery in the future. In areas of prevention one important aspect is the prosecution of traffickers and the de-criminalization of victims. In many countries victims are afraid to go to the police because they will be out-cast and become the ones criminalized.

Prevention

  • Awareness would be raised around the world to communities at risk of being trafficked.
  • Traffickers would be prosecuted for their crimes. Leviticus 19:15
  • Victims wouldn’t be criminalized. Deuteronomy 16:20

Freedom

  • Victims of human trafficking would be freed. Psalm 136:24
  • Victims would be freed and healed physically, spiritually and mentally. Revelation 1:5
  • Mentally freed slaves would find complete restoration. Isaiah 49:8

Education

  • Children would have access to education. 
  • Women and families would know the lies of traffickers. Proverbs 30:8
  • Families would have the education needed to find work. Isaiah 65:22

We are so grateful for each of you standing up for justice in the world. One prayer can change the lives of millions. If you would like more prayer points click here. We believe that Christ in the hearts of people is what will bring true and lasting change in the dark world of slavery. Colossians 2:6-7 NIV
