Week of Prayer: Day 5

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. Matthew 10: 8

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15

This week we are focusing on intentional prayer for the trafficking industry. We believe that praying for justice is vital for ending trafficking and sexual exploitation. For this week of prayer, we will be focusing each day on different parts of the trafficking industry and the cultural climate of sexual exploitation and praying specific, bold prayers for each aspect.

Hey God,

Thank you for calling each of us to do your work. Thank you for giving us your love so that we can share it with others. Father, today we come to you on behalf of the missionaries, abolitionists, and advocates that are fighting trafficking. We ask that you pour out your favor on those men and women as they work to end this injustice. Protect their heart, mind, and spirit as they take your love to the darkest parts of the earth. God, we ask for your provision in this mission and that you encourage them in their calling. Speak your words through these men and women, and let them seek your guidance in their actions. And Lord, we pray that anyone on the fence about becoming an advocate. We ask that you tear down any lie from the enemy that they may be disqualified from this ministry in any way. Let them seek to pursue the lost in their pursuit of you. Help them understand how their story can help others struggling and that it can be a vessel for your glory to shine. Father, we thank you for delivering us and placing this calling on our lives. We praise you for who you are.

  1. Consider adding a fact to each of your blogs to help some of the new followers from class really grasp the gravity of what you are talking about. Ideally, after you write the prayer, you can search for a fact or statistic that works in synergy with the specifics of the scripture and prayer.
