MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week - Victims of Human Trafficking
On this first World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, let us hold in prayer:
- the estimated 27 million women, men and children currently held in slavery- like conditions.
- the young girls and women exploited and objectified in the commercial sex industry.
- those forced to become soldiers, especially children forced to commit violence.
- those in bonded labor in agricultural fields, mines and factories.
- the perpetrators and organizers of human trafficking that they may experience conversion of heart
- governments, corporations, and consumers, that we will address the systems that make human trafficking possible.
- those who make efforts to stop the demand for human trafficking.
