Pray for Victims of Human Trafficking

Pray for Vic­tims of Human Trafficking

Heavenly Father, we pray for women, children and men who have been tricked or coerced into slavery; suffering physical, emotional and sexual abuse. We know that nothing is hidden from You, and we cry out to You for justice, freedom and mercy.

Amen.

Oth­er pray­er points

  • Almighty God, we intercede for millions of people living in slavery. Strengthen them in body, heart and spirit and raise up those who can rescue and help them. May many find true freedom through trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Lord, please protect and provide individuals who are vulnerable to heartless traffickers planning to put them to work and exploit them – taken in by their deception or helpless to resist their coercion. We also think of families in deep poverty that agree in good faith to send away their children. Help them to realise the danger and say ‘no’.
  • Jesus our Saviour, thank You for the power of Your gospel to turn us from evil. We pray for those who make money at others’ expense, who exploit, abuse, inflict violence and pain and fear on their victims. May their eyes be opened and their hearts changed by calling on You in repentance.
  • Father, please grant wisdom and boldness to those in the UK Parliaments and Assemblies speaking up against trafficking. We thank You for the new legislation introduced in 2015 across the UK, and for Lord McColl's proposed new Private Members Bill to provide greater support for victims. May these laws help to achieve a greater number of prosecutions of perpetrators and help victims recover fully.
  • Lord, equip and strengthen all police officers; that they would spot the signs of all kinds of trafficking. Lead Police Commanders, Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners to make investigating these crimes a priority. Grant them success!
  • Father, we lift to You survivors of trafficking and modern slavery as they try torecover from their ordeals and rebuild their lives. We pray especially for children now in the care of local authorities to receive the support they need and be kept safe from the influence and reach of their traffickers and others who would harm them.

No abortion amendments to the DAB and your help made all the difference

It would be easy to miss the significance of what happened last night in the House of Commons in respect to the Domestic Abuse Bill. For one thing, a vital piece of legislation has moved a step closer to becoming law. The DAB is a much needed piece of legislation. It addresses issues that are not currently dealt with by legislation. It will provide support for victims of domestic violence, create new offences and send a message that domestic abuse will not be tolerated. This matters enormously because of who we are. Humans are not objects to be subjected to coercion or abuse. We are image bearers of God and crowned with glory and honour.
